Pros: Full Frame. Image quality. Intuitive ergonomics and menu. Juicy LP-E6 battery, shared among many prosumer EOS cameras. Smaller and lighter than 5D series. WiFi, GPS. Good high ISO performance. Silent shutter

Cons: AF system not much better than in the old 5D Mark II. Despite many design similarities with EOS 60D/70D/80D, it lacks a vari-angle touch screen. SD card slot - I'd really prefer CF (or two).

Opinion: The 6D in many ways is an improvement to the 5D Mark II - better sensor, better plastic (no rattling doors), faster shooting, WiFi, GPS, better battery life (same battery though) and the smaller size and weight is appreciated by many. The back wheel+joystick/dir-pad combo works nicely. Now I can easily operate with my right hand without taking it off the grip, while holding the lens with my left, because most of the buttons are on the right side. There are some little things, like 1/4000 maximum shutter speed, 1/180 flash sync speed or no dedicated WB button, which make it inferior, but, for me, they are not that important.

Pros: Shooting higher ISO in museums and other locations without tripods.

Cons: All cameras have strong/weak points. More focus points and an integrated flash would be an option.

Opinion: Great camera. Always trying to make the best out of it. Speed is not to bad. Made fast moving events with the 6D, like air shows, rodeos and speed boats. For certain occasions a build in flash could save the day. It is also a discrete and smaller camera than the big pro bodies where some persons have to show their wealth. New cameras on the horizon. We might see an upgraded model 6D Mark II sometimes in 2017.

Pros: Easy to use, lightweight and well-machinable files, high ISO seal, small size, cost of both new and used, center point, colors, WiFi, GPS, reactivity.

Cons: Exposure meter not accurate to 100%, no joystick.

Opinion: Bought the first time to replace the 5DII and remained completely satisfied, at the sensor level was much higher than the granny, then sold and recently regained to support the 5DIV. What about, a very unique "entrylevel" FF so much that I bought it back and I think I will not sell it anymore. Gives a lot of emotions even today, when you open the files on PC I'm always amazed by the colors and quality that can churge out this little house Canon. Not disfigure at all next to the sister 5DIV, in fact I took it especially to take it with me always, without getting too much trouble as with the 5D. For my strictly landscaped use and from time to time even portrait is truly a must have for what it costs (they almost give it to you). Much smaller and more compact than a 5D, I see it almost like a ML, beautiful ready and responsive, as soon as you turn it already is ready to shoot without many frills or without being there to puzzle in the settings. It has a very good dynamic range (for my way of working the files) with a central which is a real sniper. In short, for those who do not want to spend so much and want to have all the merits of a FF without many frills and technological mightily for me useless, this small FF is ideal.

Pros: High Iso seal, colours, price

Cons: A few points Af

Opinion: Choice after trying various systems and wanting to expand my kit with a FF without spending a capital. Love from the start, colors and white balance great, the development of the RAW is a pleasure. Breaths ISO at par with the current top of the range. The rendition in the complexion is superb, and manages to recover a correct color with a few clicks of capture one even in the night, without making tick annoying green dominant (why I had discarded the Sony options). Eternal battery and body quite solid. The only flaw of this machine are the 11 AF points, the low responsiveness of the AF in servo, and the AF in Live view virtually absent. Machine that for its price, in the fields of portraiture, still life and landscaping is an absolute best buy, especially in the guaranteed used where at those prices there is nothing comparable. Note. The 11 AF points, in good light situations work perfectly if used correctly, the control unit is reliable even in difficult situations. The 20 MPX dense FF sensor behaves very well with vintage lenses. Obviously not recommended for applications where you need a fast AF traking. General file Quality 8.5/10 | Seal ISO 9.5/10 | Recoveri 7.5/10 | Color Science 10/10 | Af 5/10 | Build Quality 9/10

Pros: Holding high ISO, small system canon, WiFi, is full-frame!

Cons: Reactivity, viewfinder not 100%

Opinion: Estate, used and loved, I finally sold it. I write this review to help potential buyers. Excellent full frame camera to get started, understand the focal lengths. It shares the batteries with the Sorellone 5D2, 3, 4 70,80, 7D etc., so it integrates very well into the Canon system. Equipped with Wifi, from the very simple setup, it becomes extremely comfortable. Perfect for shots a minimum reasoned (landscape, architecture, static portrait) because it has an excellent sensor (good shots even at 12800) and still a good color rendition species on JPEG complexion. Strongly castrated by the parent company, instead on the reactivity side. 4.5 FPS can even be acceptable, but the buffer is small (especially if you have RAW and JPG active where they are only 7 photos!, only RAW is better), then you get nailed almost immediately. The autofocus is good if one does focus & recompose with the focus to the thumb, however, for a versatile use does not inspire safety and always pushes towards a second step, maybe a tap of full-time-manual focus.. So the car gets in the middle. Another malus there would be, the dynamic range, you know.. is inferior to the competition and to the most modern SLR, I confirm it, better to have it than to have it.. But for the kind of photos I rarely need.. It should also be mentioned that the viewfinder is not 100% so for a millimetric composition better to rely on Live view.. In short it is a machine with lights and shadows. If you know it and do not expect a crazy reactivity, can be a good companion or a second body maybe that mounts a wide angle or a zoom lens that does not squeeze the autofocus (70-300 F 5.6 etc). And especially at the price you find.. Can be a viaticum to start thinking about Fullframe
