Hi, I've been wanting a full frame, and really the prices on used 5dmk2s are around $500 cheaper than this new 6D. Sure the 6D is arguably better on most accounts, but is it $500 better?



well that depends a lot on the IQ.
if canon managed to get banding free shadows that would make up for some shortcomings.

but still the AF is a lackluster. imagine how much better the 6D could be with a better AF.
even a AF similiar to the 60D would be welcome now.

6D for me is a good landscape photogear for people with average financial capability.  It is a little bit overpriced.  If it can go down 1700 or below, it will be a fantastic camera.  Advanced amateur sports photogs should get 7D2 anyway...
