Someone tested 6D on photokina and it seems the AF is not bad at all :D

I would not expect it to be bad. Remember, we have people posting here using their magical powers to compare cameras based on advertised specs.
Some are evencomparing the 7D MK II based on specs they dreamed about.

Thats even sadder.

So you are giving everybody a reality check. That's good but do note much of those magical powers come about in the Roumors section though occasionally there is some overflow into other sections...

Hi,
   Look like 6D had a super center AF point.  ;D

   A lot people was wondering why 6D had only 11 AF and only the center is cross-type? I suspect it might due to design, current technology and cost limitation... may be to increase an AF point sensitive, it require a different design or take up more space in the AF sensor, so you might not have enough space to put in more AF points especially those cross type. What do you guy think? May be 6D was like 7D... a model to test out new technology in the real world before it went into their mainstream model.

   Have a nice day.

I can confirm, that the AF works very well. It´s better in low light than the AF build in the 5D Mark III.

But I don´t like the quality of the body and I am not willing to use SD-Cards. The 6D is in my opinion a camera for private use.

Wow, usually denial comes before anger, but in this case it seems they swapped positions.

But maybe I'm missing out something. Please clarify: are you assuming the AF works well because one guy is telling you what the specs already stated, the center point -3 EV sensitivity? Is that the revelation of the day?  :o

He wasn't even allowed to use his SD, we don't even know if it locked on the right subject - especially if you consider he was using a f/1.4 lens.

Considering the 5d2 locks in lowlight scenes the 1d X doesn't makes it plausible that 6d can deliver what it says. I'm still amazed how the managed to make the 5d3 and 1d X worse in that regard. And if the 6d does even better than the 5d2 then Canon yet again made their flagship look stupid for being outdone by lowsegment body...

Here's some more good news: I'm positive that the WiFi and the GPS units will work good as well. Same as that single SDXC card slot; that will work darn fast as well. And the new button setup on the back of the camera will work brilliantly, every piece of them.
But most of all - although being the smallest full frame camera in the world - that small body will work good as well. It's a big advantage to have a small full frame DSLR body. Doesn't take that much space in the "slow movers" shelf, in the warehouse.

Enough for a positive feedback ?  ;)

I guess, the same can be said about Nikon, since according to the All Hail DXO ratings, their flagship D4 are rated below the Entry Level FX in all categories.
My 5D Mark III & 50L was recently stolen. So now I'm a man without a Canon Camera.

Hmmm if, in real life, the autofocus works better than the 5D mkii and the image quality turns out to be at least as good if not better I might well start getting excited about this camera as a potential 60D upgrade!

I'm in the same boat.  I want to go full frame.  When I shoot weddings, I use the company's 5D mk2/mk3 so I don't really NEED one.  I'd like to have a FF body for personal use for less than the price of a mk3.  If the AF is good, I'd be much closer to a final decision.  My 60D has 9 AF points and all 9 are cross type but I typically just use the center and recompose anyway.

I wish it had AF during video. When I'm shooting videos, I usually like to focus manually and was looking forward to having a DSLR that had AF during video if I wanted to shoot a 2nd angle on a tripod and just let it run while I manually focus with the other camera but alas, I might have to get a T4i just for that purpose.

Does anyone who's actually played with the 6D know if the AF on the 6D works BETTER than the 60D? any thoughts or input would be welcome.
