The 6D has fantastic high-ISO noise performance. Even at 12800, the noise that is there actually looks good (almost film-like) once you apply a bit of color noise reduction in lightroom.

I don't hesitate to use 12800 when the lighting is poor.

Hi to everyone , i am also the owner of a 7d who bought just two days a go a 6d. IMO i wouldn't say that the limit for the 7d is iso 800 , my personal limit is 3200 but exposured correctly but comparing it with the 6d it's not even a fight.
I use Av mode with minimum speed at 1/125 and auto iso and just forget everything. Amazing performance

Here is my shot iso 25600 f4 1/20th processed in LR 4

I've been using my 7D for a couple years, but have been dying to get a full frame for a while.  I debated selling the 7D and getting a 5DIII, but decided to keep the 7D and pick up a 6D.  I can use them both with my 24-105L and 70-300L lenses.  I love the reach and speed of the 7D for birds/sports.

On my 7D I've used auto ISO with a maximum of 800.  What would you suggest is a comparable maximum ISO for the 6D?

Thanks.

I own a 5d3, and have rented a 6d.  ISO on both are very close.  Everyone has their own threshold for noise/usable ISO - so that really depends on what you shoot.  I do know that on either a 6d or a 5d3, I don't worry if I have to use 6400 and up...  (the quality of shots I see at 8000, and 10,000, even 12,800 are quite frankly outstanding).

I used a 7d for about 3 years prior to snagging the mk3 and I'd push the 7d ISO to 4000 in a pinch.  More times than not though upon first look i would get worried that the focus was off, or, that I was not steady in the shot...then I'd zoom in on faces...focus was fine, it just looked like the focus was off because of the noise - also the images just looked so soft, again, due to noise.  After getting the mk3, I tried using both bodies and found that I would only use the 7d if I could run below ISO 1600, which meant it was only useful for a small portion of weddings (either outdoor ceremonies or the parts of the wedding that occurred outside.   So I sold the 7d and am now looking at a 6d as a very viable backup body.

I'd say play around, shoot in as many lighting conditions as you can and find your threshold for whats usable and whats not.

Of course this depends on what you find acceptable. On my 1ds III I hardly go over 800, and on my 5D II I have gotten great shots on 3200. After playing with the 6D for a fem days I would be comfortable to go to 6400.

I set my auto iso to 12800. Grain management is so good on that camera.
