Hey guys,

Just got back from a gruelling 14hr wedding.

All i can say is wow... the 6DMKII handled flawlessly and the tilt screen came in handy in so many shots! The high ISO is incredible and the low light AF... put it this way both blow the doors off a 5DMKIII I don't think the AF missed once on the dance floor this evening.

Now I have got used to using the two dial AF point selection method I think its actually faster than using the joystick and really enjoyed using this technique.

Auto ISO was very intelligent and I love the focal length minimum shutter speed. Actually didn't realise the 7DMKII had it also so used it all day and honestly is one less thing to think about. Situations unfold at 100 million miles an hour and its so nice to know that you won't get caught out. Although it doesn't work so well with standard telephotos 24-70mm for example it will shoot in that range so you can't rely on it for freezing action. Had to watch that.

Will have a look at the images tomorrow.

Very very happy performed fantastically. Above and beyond what I expected.

The camera has been slated but dam did it perform well, the feel, weight and how responsive it is I really feel this is a big improvement on the 5DMKIII I got shots today which weren't possible to me with that camera and it has made my job a lot easier.

Loved it so much I'm pretty sure I shot over 2000 images with it and I took 3 cameras....

That's wonderful to hear but the proof is in the pudding, still to be eaten. ;)

Must say I'm not surprised.

I'm not the most qualified but I'll say it'll be wonderful, it just might not be the "best".  The question then becomes, are you a person that just have to have the best.  I shot lovely landscapes with the 6D, but maybe a DR expert would dispute it.  Who cares, everyone I show my photos to absolutely love them.  Isn't that what matters?  Of course if you're making money with the camera my perspective may not be totally correct. :)
