Great shot... but I thought Psalm 121 was more about the mountains / hills :)

LOL - the point is more about looking out of calamity to the source of help.

Here is a shot that amazes me about two great Canon tools.  #1 - the 6D.  This is shot at ISO 20,000 and I have done nothing to reduce noise.  There is a fine "film grain", but the image looks flawless. #2 - the 100L Macro lens.  This shot was taken handheld at just a few inches away.

Dustin and Chuck, very nice shots! 

Chuck, weren't you worried the bands would make fun of you for not springing the extra cash on the 5D3?  (joking!)  Which concert was that?  Nice work!

Dustin, I agree ISO 20,000 is very usable on the 6D.  The problem is the color noise rather than the grain...but it's easily reduced.  I even shot an image the other evening of a mother and fawn running in the fog (probably 35 minutes after sunset), about 1/5 mile distant with my Sigma zoom.  Unfortunately it did not turn out very well, and the shutter speed was too slow...and also the ISO was 51,200...But the 6D tried its best!  What I need is a 500mm f/1.0, haha.

HA! see now, they would have made fun of me if i had not also had my 5d3 on the other shoulder!  HA!

Top to bottom:

Monster Truck (smaller show, that one I only used the 6d)
Halestorm (6d with 16-35)
Train (same as above)
Tragically Hip (same as above)

Regarding the high ISO's, it does depend on the overall lighting.  If your pushing the limits of reason for no flash no tripod photography at night, or in dark spaces, then your gonna get some nasty grain.  But that's in extremely extreme low light where you really have no business shooting anyways...lol

I did run into a shooting situation this week where the 6d just didn't cut it for the look I was going for - Senior session, lane of trees, shooting with both the 50 1.4 and the 85 1.8.  off to camera right there was a group o people at a picnic table, so it was more about composing the shot so they were not in it at all, and yeah, I need that extra AF point that the mk3 offers (Originally I had the 85 on the 6d and the 50 on the mk3...shifted it though so the 6d had the 70-200, focus recompose at 2-8 is doable...focus recompose at 1.8...not as doable...

Chuck, it's nice to get good honest information without bias.  I'm feeling at times like the 6D AF is not serving me 100% with my bird compositions, especially BIF.  However, I don't have a second camera to compare with and all I can go by is what others seem to be succeeding at with their 5D3 or 1Dx or whatever.  Never the less I've been thrilled with my 6D experience since I am getting great shots in general and I chose to spend on glass rather than camera (I am so thankful I got the 300 2.8 II that was tough to afford).

Being a beginner I didn't fully understand your challenge and the solution that followed.  Is it specific to very fast lenses.  What exactly did you do with the 5D3 that you couldn't with the 6D?  Forgive my ignorance.

Fast lenses wide open, the DOF is pretty thin so nailing focus is critical.  If i had wanted 2.8 or higher the 6d would have worked just fine (and in all reality, I could have done it with the primes, it was more a matter of why take the risk when you have the mk3 sitting right next to you).  In a setting like this, I do trust the 6d's outer points, but, when i go below 2.8...my trust does fade...

@Jack, your needs are much much different than mine - I have attempted bird photography and it's rough even with the mk3 (it requires a different kind of patience than I'm used too..I can sit outside at night watching my camera expose for 10 minutes and that's just fine, but with birds its more of a watch watch, wait wait..watch watch....oh snap...)...most of my attempts have been with birds in motion too, and the longest lens i have is a 70-200 (no extender).  It's not easy to grab focus, even with the servo mode of the mk3 (a 2x extender would help...at 300mm with 2x extender would really help...

Either way, here are 2 examples of from both cameras...

first is from 5d3 with 85mm  at 1.8
second is 6d with 70-200, at 105mm, 2.8

Both are right out of camera, no on or off cam lighting
