d. In theory the point of focus should 'pop' in and out more, but in practice there is only a subtle difference.I put those lenses on my 5DIII and I miss focus 80% or more of the time when shooting wide open. It's probably the only reason I haven't upgraded my 5DII. The regular screen looks so grainy on the 5DIII it drives me nuts, not to mention that it doesn't give me an accurate bokeh preview.
In the days of manual focus slrs only the very cheapest (Zenit) had a plain ground screen with no other focusing aid such as microprism or split screen.
That's sad, perhaps we try the Ec-B, I've read that the Ec-S fits into the 1Dx but doesn't work the way it was designed in this particular Body, only in the older bodies 1DMK IV 1Ds MK III etc, but I've had no experience with these manual focus screens so at $50 each it's worth buying a few and see which works best.
That really does look tranquil, not a ripple, I don't know about flat as a mill pond, that's more like a mirror.

The 6D further improved on the 5D2, yet you don't give it any respect. You're biased, that's all.
Sure, it further improved the IQ a bit, which was already excellent on the 5DII. It improved the metering, too. It didn't significantly improve the AF or frame rate, which were the 5DII's biggest deficits. The 6D has a less robust shutter with a 1-stop lower max speed, slower Xsync, and a shorter rated lifespan. The 6D has a substantially longer shutter lag. So considering IQ only, the 6D improved on the 5DII, but overall it's a mixed bag. The 5DIII improved on the 5DII in pretty much every way. At least on Amazon (not that it means much) the 5DIII is outselling the 6D.
The 6D's biggest 'feature' is its lower cost.
Of course, AvTvM might say the 6D is not 'dated' because it has WiFi. Nice if you want to upload your JPGs to Facebook on the fly, I suppose. I thought it would be great for remote triggering, but someone pointed out that after a short time the connection drops, and you have to physically access the 6D to reactivate the link - that severely limits the utility, IMO (the WFT options for other bodies aren't limited in that way, but you pay a big premium for them).
* 5D III = 5D IIN
* 6D = 5D II v1.1
6D basically is a FF digital rebel to me. Marekting crippled product with a reasonable sensor and Wifi. About equally bad as Nikon D610, but better than D600, since it did not do splatter movies with its mirror. :-)
I would like see a 70-300 F4 better then the current 70-300L and take 1.4 converter.
<p>2014 will see the replacement of the Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS
It'd been 9 months and only a handful of images.
Hmm, there's something wrong with this thread: nobody is saying "We don't need that shadow detail" or "Shadow detail isn't important of you expose properly" or "Sony's better DR isn't required if you shoot properly."
Where did all of those folks go?
