6D has less noise than 5D M3

This is very interesting and frustrating. I have a Mark 3 and will be doing lots of night photography.

Quoting from Petapixel:

"He simply shot long exposures without any light (the cap was on)"

Well That's It! The 6D may have the light leak problem and ... underexposes when shooting the lens cap ;D ;D ;D

don't worry too much about noise tests- Canon 'cheats' when figuring out their ISO's and noise claims- As do other manufacturers- If I remember right, the 1DX figures noise differently than the 5d3 and therefore was able to say their 8000 iso gave similar results as 5D3's iso 6400 or some such figures- The fact is that all these cameras ruly are excellent in low light and high iso's- taking photos without flash that cameras 10 years ago couldn't even dream of taking- We are now takign photos that were impossible not too long ago and with much less noise too- cameras have really advanced by leaps and bounds, and we're in a very exciting time in terms of camera technology- some say we're even close to the max advancements with our current crop of cameras- iT MAY BE THAT THE 6d HAS SLIGHTLY BETTER NOISE CONTROL, IT MAY JUST BE IN HOW THE CALCULATIONS AREFIGURED AND HTE FACT IS THAT ALL THE BIG GUNS ARE NEARLY IDENTICLE IN ACTUALITY- WHO KNOWS- Durn cps lock- just enjoy your purchase, you have a fantastic camera which WILL be able to shoot lowl ight nicely
