Get the 6D better AF coverage and more points, get dual cards and what would be the need for 5D3 that you lack on such 6D2?
Frame rate, flash sync speed, max shutter speed, over 30+ AF points (just because a 6D would have 19 doesnt meant they'd have a good spread)....all things critical to a pro photographer vs a hobbyist. And those are the markets they are targeting. You'd find few, if any, sports or wedding photogs who would go 6D2 over 5DIII in that circumstance.
And as a hobbyist, I'd certainly like a 6D2 that has the IQ and low-light ability of the 6D, but with a little better AF spread so I can use it for the times I capture action/nature.
Agree. 6D is an amazing value option for Canon shooters and underlines how little an "upgrade" the 5DIII was.
Huh? The 5DIII was a massive upgrade over the 5DII for photography. As in, pro's dealt with the hilarious limitations of the 5DII because it was their only real option (without going 1D), while they flocked in droves to the 5DIII.
It added 50+ focus points, 40 of them cross-type...added 2fps to the rate...the list goes on for days. The 5DII was out-spec'd by the 60D in everything but sensor size; the 5DIII is beaten only by the 1DX.
If that's a little upgrade to you, you'll be horribly disappointed by every Canon upgrade from here to the end of time. Few, if any, cameras will get more of an upgrade in one cycle
