Yeah, right - incredible iq from this sensor (in comparison to a mobile phone?), crisp/detailed images with a kit lens and shooting in low-light on crop (with tripod?) ... the Canon marketing guys are about to be hit by lightning.
Unlikely ... or else they would already have been struck by lightning for royally screwing up the AF on the 6D.
All the field reports I've heard of the 6D suggests that it actually has quite remarkable autofocus performance, including that it focusses better in very dim light than any other camera ever made.
Sure, it doesn't have as many points. And, yes -- of course! -- it doesn't perform as well as Canon's top-of-the-line cameras like the 1Dx and 5DIII. But it would seem to have the best autofocus of any midrange camera ever made.
If that's a royal screwup, I sure wish I could screw up that royally more often....
1 x type AF points looks like a royal screw up when the crop bodies are coming up with more x type Af Points. But then, maybe I am spoilt with the 5d3.
Point is, the 6D shouldn't have been crippled to such a great extent. What was preventing Canon from putting in a 7D sort of AF system is anyone's guess. It has been done on purpose and I don't see how anyone can defend that.
The low light AF is indeed a nice feature but then ... Could have been waaaay better!
