I never said the AF on the 6d is awful if you look I own one myself. Compared to the C300 or C500 the video IS awful compared to most other DSLRs its not.
The 6d has had a lot of very critical reviews most of them comparing it to the 5dMKIII why? The two are very different cameras and that was not a mistake of Canon it was addressing two different market segments and for its price the IQ of the Canon 6d is beyond reproach and comparable to the 5dMKIII in stills which is all Im interested in.
Fair enough, and I agree. Why does it get compared to the 5D3? Well, because it costs less, yet has less noise...and that drives some people nuts. It's kind of like if a Jetta gets better gas mileage than a Lambo Countach with malfunctioning Webber carburetors. The Lambo is still faster, has more flash and pizazz, costs a ton more...has more bragging rights. But if you're suddenly in a group of "greenies", the Lambo owner isn't going to like their criticism about its poor gas mileage...as he simply must be adored by EVERYONE in order to feel adequate. Similar to the "peacock" syndrome exhibited by country hicks who buy a new red pickup truck every six months, who enjoy tail-gaiting, but never quite having the cojones to attempt passing the traffic in front of them. When that traffic taps their brakes to say "step off my butt, follow at a safe distance"...well then it's on! I digress, but you get the point.
