What am I missing here?
Very strange, I really couldn't imagine, this is Av/Tv and definitely isn't what M does unless you run Magic Lantern and use the "Expo Lock" feature :-o

What am I missing here?
24-70II was having a hard time capturing focus at all but was decent when it finally hit.
I am definitely getting more misses and need to be much more mindful of the AF.
It took me 3 tries to get a 6D that exposed properly!
If you can't get decent pictures out of a 6D then there is some serious wrong with you as a photographer!!
Hmmm ... must not be selling well.
I believe, there is a market for such a camera and I also believe that the canon people aren't that blind an stu**d to not see that market.
Yes, it's SuperCarl, strange visitor from Canon HQ, who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal cameras.
I get at least 6 out of 10 shots in razor sharp focus
Don't presume to call me a liar here, or that I'm misleading people. Because I'm not. It's not your job to be calling me out, either...you're not the 6D police, the Canon police, or my police.
Not contradicting myself, it works in single point mode, as I keep saying over and over.
You're right then, I don't see why the center point isn't a "full cross point" at f/2.8. I thought it was.
The 6D can work quite well for wildlife in motion.
Nobody said it's a great AF sensor...it kind of sucks.
Certainly specific lenses can have issues with the 6D, no doubt about that. I just received my new 70-300L, and it seems to autofocus slower than my good old 70-200 f/4 (non IS).
it could be a,D17 or a D77....smiles...
In all other cases, 6d & wildlife is a hit and miss game, you will of course get *some* good shots and can proudly post them as "6d wildlife", but you'll lose a lot because the af doesn't lock on.The AF does lock on especially in bright light, with center point only. Just because it won't lock on and get 9 out of 10 shots in razor sharp focus in servo mode, with all points active, is no reason to say it can't lock on at all. ... You're saying in bright light it can't ever lock on regardless if it's with center point only, or with all points, and that's definitely false.
With center point, trust me it locks on.
In single shot mode, no misses with center point, and few with all points active.
Are you shooting portaits in servo mode?
I live in the north where it's regularly 20 degrees (-7 celsius) this time of year, and I'm regularly moving my gear from outside to inside.
