Some call it luck, some call it persistence .... and freezing your ### off waiting just for the right time
This was pretty cold, but nothing like winter in Canada ! Shot with the 6D and 24-70 f4L @ 40mm. A hand held five vertical frame panoramic. The new 24-70 f4L is a great match for the size of the 6D, which is a really is a really good fit in your hand.
As I have mentioned before there are some annoying features that the 6D has been given. I actually don't have any issues with the 8 way controller or the AF, but why on earth have Canon fitted the camera with a magnify button which you have to press before using the command wheel to zoom in and out ? I mean why not use the same system as on the 5D et al ? The same buttons are there for heaven's sake !
Also there is no dedicated flash compensation button, which although you can adjust through the 'quick menu' isn't the same. You can live with all these things but it doesn't make the 6D a good second body to a 5D IMO.
First, that is a gorgeous capture! Secondly, I can't disagree with your conclusions. I still get messed up zooming at times. My advantage (I guess)is that I use two 6D bodies, so at least I have consistency between them. It helps at events; I don't waste time reaching for buttons or wheels that aren't there. Still, above all it is the results that matter to me.
