If you think 97% Viewfinder Coverage in 6D is too big, wait until you shoot with 5D III @ 100% ;)

The OP is talking about the size of the image in the viewfinder, it has nothing to do with coverage.

+1 ... The difference in the size of the viewfinder between a 5D3 and a 6D is imperceptible
I took a hiatus from CR for a year and a half. The discussions haven't changed much. Excellent information is still being shared while people bitching about Canon cameras are still bitching and haven't moved on to Sony

Yes, the 7D's magnification is either 1 or very close to it. You can put a 50mm lens on it and things look pretty much exactly the same size as they do through your other eye; in fact you can still have proper binocular vision with 1 eye looking through the finder and the other not.


All I can picture is how ridiculous someone would look walking around w/ one eye looking thru the VF and the other not... snapping photos.  ;D

I know...it was a joke since the OP mentioned 6D with 97% is too big ;D

this is a common misconception.
No, it's not. At 0.71x magnification 100% coverage viewfinder will be bigger than 97% coverage viewfinder. 6D and 5D3 both has 0.71x magnification viewfinders. APS-C cameras have smaller magnification, 7D, for example, has 0.63x, 50D has 0.59x.

we are talking abt 97 vs 100. yes, on paper is it bigger. but in real life, can you even notice that 3%? putting the 3% vf crop aside. he made it seems like that the 3% size difference is going to blow OP away. this is a misconception in this sense.

So...it's bigger
