Interesting, but calculations don't amount to much more than theory. How it actually measures is another matter.

Shooting indoors without flash, child sitting on sofa, shooting wide open with the 50mm f/1.4 - no option but to focus and recompose.
I agree that the center point of the 6D is very good, but there are times when you need those outer focus points.
J.R., I'm not sure what lens and what shooting situation you would be in, where you would need to use the outer focus points in low light. In any case, don't do that, because they aren't meant for low light.
Are you in shutter or aperture priority, or manual? I assume you're at some event or wedding with a wider angle lens or something?
The biggest trouble I face is when I'm shooting at wide open apertures. In low light you need those wide open apertures and I find too many of my shots out of focus with using the center point focus and recompose - kills the fun of it.
As Chuck mentioned, one can always crop later to get the composition right but it lessens the fun a bit so I am predominantly use WA on the 6D and wide aperture lenses on the 5D3.
I guess the main griping about the 6D AF comes from the fact that Canon intentionally crippled the AF and left it only as good as the AF of the 5D2 when it could have been better.
Quote from Neruo: "As for 'out of air accusations', how would you feel if, hypothetically, I called you, "Not the brightest bulb?"
i would maybe say "get a life and don´t spend half your life on internet forums. you can´t be that bright either".
Lol @ 7/16 of your time...
I personally dont spend half of my life on forums. It is closer to 7/16 of my time. Also, to each his own. If thats how you enjoy life, so what? And Neuro is one of the brightest people on this forum. Sometimes i wonder if there is anything he DOESNT know.
Personally I outgrew video games by about age 15. But these days, it seems there is a generation who is so narcissistic that they will never grow up. And they expect you to be happy about that, and to bow to their whims and their willful ignorance of the people and world around them. I guess that's why so many college grads these days aren't getting hired to do the type of work they expect. They feel so entitled that they will never learn the meaning of respect, and are happy to tap away at their iPhones even during a job interview...Why? Well, it's because they are the most important generation in the history of the world. Haven't you heard? That's how their parents and the current culture raised them. It's time for change.
I'm 21. I'm most certainly part of this "narcissistic" generation that you're talking about. I don't know what generation you're from, how old you are, or what kind of esteem you hold yourself to. But I will say this: our generation is not responsible for this "behavior" that you speak of. People don't pull their phones out during interviews. Not the people I know. If you've personally experienced this, then I can only advise you to screen such applicants more stringently in the future. People who do that shouldn't be interviewing in the first place.
I still haven't outgrown video games. I never will. As a software developer and amateur photographer, I see video games as another medium of art. It's more than just first person shooters. There are stories being told, art being drawn, scenes being crafted. Your comments make it seem like in order to be respectful, selfless people in the world, we all have to grow up. You're wrong. It's about educating the younger generation. It's about setting examples. Kids can be respectful. Adults can be disrespectful.
What did you do to be banned? I don't want to know your answer. Unless you immediately assume that the moderator is a member of my generation or simply not a member of yours, please don't blame us for things like forum moderating, banning, or general "rudeness".
We don't expect anything from anyone. And it's not a result of us being in a "me" generation. It's a result of us being in a place and time where humans are so focused on digital and social networks. There's a disconnect between reality and interpersonal relationships. And it's not limited to my generation. I'd go on explaining that last, and most significant point, but I'd be thread-crapping and thread-jacking an already nutty thread.

I worked at a university for a few years, ran the video and camera hire facility, studios and media suites.
I had a few rules:
If folk didn't ask for help I wouldn't interfere (unless they were putting themselves, others or equipment in danger)
If they were modest enough to ask for help they got it, as far as as I was able, on the condition I got their attention and respect. I knew how everthing worked, I wasn't explaining it for my benefit. The phone is put off for five minutes thank you. First time is friendly, second time is friendly and I'll go through it a bit more slowly, third time is 'did you miss a few classes?' Fourth time is 'did you attend ANY classes'
They would see me as the devil in first year, know how to approach me in the second year, seek me out in their third year and leave with emphatic thanks after their forth year.
There is a 'me' generation. No doubt about it. The funny bit is that I see some of the 'difficult to reach' students these days, usually in costa coffee or mcdonalds, I see them trying to work out how they know my face, I've moved onto to full time camerawork, they've taken their own trajectory, their 'me' ego intact and getting them far in life.
I received a ban a couple of months ago. In my opinion, it is really up to the mood of the moderator. If they want to ban you...they will warn you of course...but then if you post anything at all after that, it gets hyperfocused on by them...because well...they are in the mood to ban you.
Sorry Carl but I distinctly remember there was some name calling going on ... the posts were deleted by the mods - I remember in a few posts you were complaining about warnings that you got from the mods.
Actually Neuro, that last image that shows the autofocus spread that looks so small and narrow, is the one I was referring to as being incorrect. Frankly both of those are incorrect. Just pick up a 6D and do a side by side comparison. True the viewfinder is not 100%, but in reality it is very close to 100%. The spread of the AF array is nowhere near as small as that second image.
The one thing I've learnt with photography is that close is never close enough. The spread of the array is not that small but not particularly larger either.
Carl ... how are you getting on with the outer focus points in low light. Mine just seem to go bonkers so I'm left to focus recompose using the center focus point.
This is the thing. There is nothing really to clear up.
What are you going to do with the information once you have it... become engineers?
The 5D3 and 1DX have different sensors. That's why the Raw files have different qualities. It stands to reason that the more expensive flagship model gets the best stuff and quite rightly has the best IQ.
That's all that we need to know. Different sensors, different results. It's common sense and you don't have to have any tech knowledge to work that out.
If you really must know go on the DWF forum and ask Chuck Westfall why there's a difference.
Copper / Gold was figuratively speaking. But to compare.... the Generation 4 ipod had something called a Wolfson DAC inside it. This was and still is considered the best DAC and therefore led to the best sound quality on the ipod. Ever. It's why I have an old one in my car, when using FLAC files the clarity is amazing. Apple use a different one now and it's not the same.
Canon are not only using different sensors, but different components. Higher quality components to get a cleaner image.
