<p>I still don’t like the EF 24-70 f/2.8L II on the EOS 6D. Mainly because of the bulk of the lens compared to the body. The results are terrific, it just doesn’t balance well.
I played with the 6D for 2 days, from 1st patch copies....I shared the same thoughts with CRs members about the 6D chassis with L lenses. Some members didn't take it very well. They thought I was being negative on the 6D over 5D III. Especially people from crop to 6D....oh well
Still...it's a great FF entry camera
Handled one with battery grip, it feels much better even with a heavy lens like a 100mm macro usm. If I eventually buy it, i'll be sure to add a battery grip immediately. Try it... You might like it.
This sounds like a camera body with a lot of compromises....so at this price level it would seem to make sense to save a little more money and find a bargain 5DIII on eBay...then there are no regrets. Unless you just have to have battery-draining wifi and/or GPS.
(So I am guessing that none of you would be a fan of the "M" from at least a balance standpoint? )
