I shoot with the Canon products, a 5D Mark III to be exact. I also shoot with their professional camcorders. That being said, I have to say that as a former Nikon user, the Nikon cameras provided a much sharper shot. Don't get me wrong, I love my Mark III but honestly, it leaves me wanting more. There are many cameras out there that are arguably better. The Canon 6D is not one of those cameras. That's not to suggest that it is a bad camera but, it is not better. The picture taken in Costa Rica that was posted is not a very good picture in terms of quality. The composition is good but the quality is typical of what I have seen from non-professional users. More specifically, the picture lacks sharpness throughout and for whatever reason is not properly focused; however this is probably due to user error and not a deficiency within the camera.
This is more properly called viewer error, not user error. The photo is perfectly focused on the child. Exif indicates the photo was shot at f/2.8, so the background is understandably out of focus.
