My camera has about 16 million focus points and covers 80% of the sensor area.

My retina is curved. My eyeballs do not contain multiple elements. IF flat sensors were "simpler" to design for, I am quite disappointed that we have not evolved that superior level yet!+1
I guess it is time to begin R&D on printing silicon wafers
So as I move into my 3rd year of photography, I find my 500D isn't able to help my take my photography to the next level and its beginning to feel like my L series lenses are begging to shoot on a full frame body.
Hi.This should bring you to the comparison site of the two lenses and cameras.
As most of you are aware of Nikon and Sony (I know that Sony manufacture sensors for Nikon) sensors are better when it comes to DR and so on compared to Canon. I have read DXO-tests and many others that verify that. But there seems to be a point at a ISO-value where the difference is not that big. Of course there is an advantage in mp also for the 36mp bodies but the resolution is not what I am thinking of now.
The sensible option is to remain with my crop-inspired lenses and maybe go to a 70D or the next Rebel, but the 6D seems pretty cool.There are mainly two questions you need to answer. First, and most important; how much money do you like to spend on a tool you do not need to make a living out of. I think you know this, since the 70D and the 6D are not so far appart on the price scale.
It's yet another example of a camera that was close to be fantastic, yet is not, and you wonder what made Nikon overlook such fundamental aspects. The camera ends up feeling like a fashion accessory for loaded vintage-loving hipsters and nostalgics. That is, more a marketing novelty than a photographic one.
I've seen rumors that Nikon is working on cameras that can have an interchangeable sensor...
Now, I found really strange that Canon, that's producing both Camera and Sensors is not working on something similar.
Canon il the market leader and could set a standard for all the companies, no?
You have to admit he is good at what he does...
Yes, he is. But what he 'does' (as in, does for a living) is not photography, nor is it teaching photography or reviewing gear. It's running a for-profit website. Controversial statements generate website hits and ad revenue. Having people act as unwitting shills is great for KR's 'growing family'.
I'm amazed you're still using a 350D
This is funny because I work with a guy who still uses his 350D and he swears by it. He says a couple of reasons why he still loves it is because 1) The pixel pitch is 7.4um (close to the full frame 5D & 5D2) and produces noise free images all the way through his ISO range and it is a larger body than the newer Rebels and feels "beefier".
I suppose that is a testomony to the quality of Canon's products, that such an "old" DSLR is still going strong, even after years and years of use. Personally? I would have dumped it years ago in favor of the newer, brighter (and larger) LCD back displays. I can't imaging how we got past such a small, dim display and made it work, but compared to film, at least you got something to look at vs. having to wait to develop your film to see...
