Here's another from my 6D/Rokinon 14mm combination.  That lens is just great for how little money it is!!

That's a great shot Dustin. You were very lucky with the sun; when it just breaks through the cloud on the horizon it produces a wonderful effect. Love the back illumination of the ice.

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.

That is pretty much my favorite "version" of sunrise and fortunately one that you can get even on a day that will turn out to be overcast.

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.

Thanks Dustin.

You're quite right; it is the results that matter. It's just irritating that for someone who cannot afford, or doesn't wish to afford the 5D mkiii, the choice is a 6D or used 5D mkii. The 6D is the better camera, it has the edge on the 5D mkii even at 100 ISO in certain (difficult) lighting conditions, but you then have to accept the more Rebel orientated controls.

Full marks to Canon for differentiating between the 6 and 5D lines  ;).   ::)

I'm afraid that the emoticons are right on.  Those of us who own the 6D know that it is an amazing camera, and yet still the blatant crippling of it in certain areas does rankle.  A combination of the feature set/design of the new 70D with the 6D would be pretty much an ideal camera for me.

Here's another taken (wide open) with the 35mm f/2 IS. 



To see how I turned a fairly basic snapshot into this, take a look at this tutorial:

6D + Sigma 150mm F2.8 EX APO DG HSM Macro
crazy crop, 1/9 of the frame (~450mm equivalent)
I guess the lack of AA filter works for me ;)
