By the way, how long would you say, is the total number of minutes, you have spent with a 6D, in your life? If that is a low number, why do you feel the need to comment on this camera so often? Why don't you comment on the 1DX thread more?
A sufficient number. In fact, I don't comment with great frequency on the 6D relative to other cameras. I think you just pay more attention to comments on the 6D – especially negative comments (and more so when you're wearing your SuperCarl
cape and tights). I comment frequently on the 1D X. There are simply more threads on the 5DIII and 6D because those bodies are within budget for many more people.
How about this? Since you enjoy commenting about the 6D so much on here, you should at least buy one and shoot it for a while (I would suggest daily for about 3 months at least), before asserting who knows what about the camera.
If you had five acres of grass to mow, would you trade your riding mower for a hand-pushed mower, just to prove to yourself that the riding mower was better? I wouldn't... Yes, the push mower can be better in very limited situations, like a narrow strip of grass between two structures. In the same way, there are rare situations where the 6D is better than the higher-end models.
I know you think I don't know what I'm talking about, and that's fine with me. I could never prove you wrong about that, to yourself, no matter what I said or did. You (and others) have a personal bias against me (and have since day one that I posted on here), so why would I waste my time trying to prove anything to you? That would be pure folly...and I'm no fool.
I have a bias against misinformation. You stated that the -3 EV AF sensitivity of the 6D, "...can be very useful in the majority of situations where you are shooting wildlife (or people) around, before, or after sunset." When challenged to back up that claim, instead of even a single image representing 'the majority' you respond with justifications and excuses.
Yes, the 6D can focus well in moderately dim light, as long as you're only using the center point. In equally dim light, the 5DIII and 1D X can focus just as well with many more AF points, notably with off-center cross-type AF points. The 6D has no advantage in lighting that allows usable images in most situations, particularly in the situations to which you refer. The expression, "Put up or shut up," comes to mind.
However, I would suggest that someone who bullies people as much as you on a forum that is their personal sandbox to play in, is compensating for shortcomings. I don't have those shortcomings...I don't come on here to compensate for anything.
I approach things I have little or no experience with, with an open mind. I don't make snap judgments based on very short experience, and then forever hold to such prejudice. But that's one of the differences between you and me. Another big difference, is I try to welcome newcomers with politeness...rather than snidely brow-beating them with trivia, as if this is some kind of robot war. Nobody's perfect, but damn...??
If this is a sandbox, you started out by pissing in it. Within a few days of your first post, you had offended and/or drawn the ire of several forum members (myself not
Less than a month after joining, you replied to someone with this:
I'll put mine up against yours any day of the week young lad. Whoever's lens loses, has to buy the winner a chess set made of all the Nikon and Canon supertelephoto lenses...oh, and we exchange wives and/or girlfriends...and mistresses, for a month...yours won't be coming home after they've played chess with me! If I lose...well...I keep my harem chained in an underground lair out in the woods...they aren't really allowed to leave...but I'll send you my neighbor's wife.
Frankly, a comment like that is beyond merely offensive, it's disgusting and repugnant. Any "man" who would make a statement like that, even attempting to pass it off as humor, is clearly compensating for a whole host of shortcomings.
Nobody's perfect, but most of us aren't sociopathic.
