I bought one just for the price.  I passed up the $399 deal last month (on eBay).  Even if I absolutely hate the camera, I could probably sell it on CL for a small profit!

whoa!  what happened here?  wtf did I miss?  are you guys arguing about if a camera's AF is good or not? really? 

the 6D is great for what it is at the price point it's at.  If the 6D's features don't fit your needs, get the mk3 or 1DX.  it's not that complicated.  It didn't happen to meet my needs for what I wanted from a backup camera but that doesn't mean it isn't right for someone else.  Heck, for me, I just didn't like it not matching the feel/button layout of my 5D mk3... again, first world problems.....sheesh,  I'll live. 

as far as who's lying and who's had real world experience with the camera, go try it out for yourself.  a consumer's own personal experience/opinion with the body is what matters the most anyway.  They're the ones shelling out the cash to purchase the product.  share your thoughts on it if you care to share but my goodness, let's keep it civil.  name calling and insulting each other is just useless and to be honest, I'm surprised a moderator hasn't put a stop to this discussion already. 

go shoot some pictures guys/gals.  I still think that's more entertaining than writing essays on CR about

Well, I have a pretty nice dSLR.   ::)  But I don't use it for handheld video and instead, I have a Canon Vixia HF M41 camcorder for that.  I frequently bring both with me.  Obviously, the main reason is the lack of a usable 'camcorder-like' AF in the dSLR. 

Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF appears to change that.  I'm not sure if it will get incorporated into the high end dSLRs at some point (it might not - the Hybrid CMOS AF hasn't), but if it does, and the AF performance is as-billed, I'd consider ditching the camcorder and just using the dSLR for video.

Had an M41 but sold it.  I do miss the AF though and I have been waiting for a non-rebel with the ability to focus automatically during video.

In response to the op, I think it's a great thing that we have the ability to do video with our DSLRs.  That's what convinced me to get into the DSLR world in the first place.  I didn't realize I'd love the photog stuff just as much!  =o

maybe I'm just numb to it but it's kind of funny to see him get all worked up about it....it's obviously an act to get more hits on youtube.  for those of you who are offended by him, I urge you to not take anything personally.  don't let some clown on you tube get your blood pumping.  I'm not advocating for him.  I just wouldn't take him that seriously.

on another note, I'm actually interested to see how the 70d performs.  I thought I'd never go back to APS-C but if it has AF during video AND it has kelvin temp white balance, AND decent high ISO performance, I might have a reason to get one for a 2nd angle for videos.  I really don't want a T4i/T5i.  I'd like to have the same LP-E6 battery in all my cameras, and a swivel screen is very convenient.

I owned it for 4 days and returned it.  This might be an unfair comparison because I already own a 5d mk3.  The worst thing for me was that it felt a little slower to focus (with the same lenses in daylight) compared to my mk3.

the other gripes I had were MINOR. I could have lived with these issues, especially if it was my only body or if I had two 6Ds.  :

1) a bit more plastic feeling
2) button layout was different compared to mk3
3) SD cards are a tad bit slower than CF, also no dual card slot

Honestly, I don't think I would've felt the difference in AF speed if I wasn't a mk3 user.  I hear there is a little bit of a problem with moire when doing video butI didn't bother testing it. 

I'm actually considering a T4i/T5i as a 2nd camera angle for the Auto AF during video but I'm torn because I want that feature in a FF body with a vari-angle LCD, same LP-E6 battery, and Kelvin temp WB.  maybe the 70D, 7d mk2, or 6d mk2 will bring me some/all of these features!

I might need to upgrade my tripod for that one!  =P

I think they use 1TB drives for storage when taking pictures with it!!!!

(sigh)  I'm returning the 6D today (purchased on Thursday).  Decent camera but a little slower and a bit "plastic-y" (minor gripe).  You guys were right.  I've got to get an identical body.  damn... time to save!!!

This is great news.  I've been patiently waiting to add an ultra wide angle to my FF lens collection!

When the 5D Mark IV comes out?

I'd go 5DIII.

I was in a Best Buy a couple weeks ago and could not make heads or tales of the 6D's controls (I didn't spend a lot of time on it though).

I have a 5DIII and 1DsIII. I really love the 1DsIII's feel but I know deep down I should get another 5DIII. The biggest thing I miss is the multi-controller in portrait orientation (with grip). Next would be all the AF points.

I'd say with fast primes more AF points are paramount. Shooting shallow DOF and having to recompose will certainly equal lots of blown shots.

coming from a 60D, the 6D still feels generally comfortable to use.  Maybe that's why I'm more comfortable using a non-identical body.  If I had the money for it though, I would definitely just get another mk3.

great thread.  I'm considering a second body as well and I really want to have an identical camera but I think the 6d will do considering how much I'm NOT making from photography/video lately! (1st world problems...sheesh)

Lenses / Re: Sell non L primes to get 24-70LII

We get one topic like this per week. "should i sell my x/y/z to get the new 24-70L" Maybe there should be a sticky "Get it if you can really afford it, it rules". With an Oprah gif saying Ć«verybody gets a 24-70.

 that is where I most contribute,  because I love to spend other people's money. 

 and honestly,  if it helps someone make s right decision or they feel more comfortable with their decision,  then I am glad to have helpedeven if it is redundant.

I too am ok with helping people feel better about their purchase as long as it's the right purchase for their needs.

There's a link to the item from B&H (in my last reply).

the lens band proved to be more than a quick band-aid fix for me when I owned the 24-105.  I used it in a way that way that was half on the barrel and half on the zoom ring and it gave a nice resistance to the zoom after a little bit of a break in period.  loved it.  it made it feel like new again.  I'd try that first if you're relatively happy with the IQ of that lens.

personally, I didn't like my 50 1.4 between f/1.4-2.6 so I decided to sell it and put the $ towards the 24-70 II.  If you're using the 24-105 at f/4 all the time, i think you'll be super happy with the 24-70 at f/2.8.  It's quite a bit sharper wide open.  I found I used my 24-105 more between 70-105 which I why I actually got the 70-200 2.8 first. 

sounds like you got a good plan in your head based on what you want.  I say go for it.
