5.0 out of 5 stars 6D at left, 5D at right. Cheaper solution for 3D movies., October 27, 2012
This review is from: Canon EOS 6D 20.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD (Body Only) - Wi-Fi Enabled (Electronics)
Pardon me to write this review before I actually owned it. I am planning to get one.

I own a 5DM3, and seeking anohter FF to pair together to produce 3D movies.
According to the specs, the 6D has similar quantum efficiency as that of 5DM3's.

** 5DM3 vs 6D **
Basicly, when shooting photos, 5DM3 is preferred since it has 60+ AF points. (6D have 11 AF points nia)

For those who are going to take sports photo, you might caught into AF problems with 6D having fewer AF points, and lesser photo fps. (See my 5-Star review at 5DM3)

You might also consider an 1DX for more fps.

As a owner of 5DM3, investing into this 6D as a cost-efficient solution to Make 3D movies, paired 5DM3. (Extra $ goes in investing lens. Buy a third party 135/1.8 or just Canon 135/2L lens, for example)

5D3 PK 6D
AF Points >> 60 vs 11
frame rate>> 6 vs 4.5
AF speed >> fast vs slower and less accurate
Storage >> CF+SD vs SD only

5D3 better?

6D has GPS? My 5D3 doesn't have. Hmmm?

** Conclusion **

If you are satisfied with lesser AF points, slower AF speed, lesser fps, 6D can be a good solution.

If you demand more accurate AF, faster AF or higher fps, then you should buy 5D3 or 1DX.

6D, 5D3 and 1DX are indeed all well propotionated for their price/performance.

** Complaints **

For 6D, 5D3 and 1DX: Why not having 1080p60??? Cheaper Sony does offer.
Have to bring Panasonic V700M or FZ150,FZ200 in addition with 5D/6D if there a need 1080p60 movies. 1DC is too expensive.

You don't own the product. I do not "pardon you" for writing a review of a product you have never owned. We can all read the spec sheets, which is all you have done.

It is really stupid of you to write a "review" of a product that isn't released yet. People read reviews to see how the product works for users, not to get someone's opinion of a product they don't even have.

Five stars for what? You haven't even seen the camera.

another WANNA BE 1st to review the product.. the camera hasn't reach the market yet! another misleading review and this would confuse a future buyer... this is more like 5d mark III's review against 6d... go back to 5d mark III's review page!

shooting video there is no auto focus so if you are shooting video who cares about 64 point af.
if the crutch of more af points appeals to you and you dont know how to focus or do not appreciate the extra sharpness that the Zeiss glass for Canon offers then spend the extra 2000.00.
as a 5d mk2 owner I never have bad shots because I don't have enough af points. As far as fps, if you are the type of photographer that just holds down the shutter and then picks a shot that was a lucky shot then the 5dmk3 again is for you. for an extra 2000.00 I would rather become a better photographer and not shoot machine gun style.
I do not have the 6d but it seems like the obvious choice when comparing the 5dmk3 to the 6d. or you can get a 5dmk2 for 1700.00 right now.
I think allot of people will be trying to justify the extra 2000 they spent on a mk3 with the 6d out but it will only be just that.

You can't do 3D with this because there's no genlock.
