Excerpt: I took a Canon 6D + EF 50mm f1.4 USM to Colombia and took about 700 fotos - focus was fine for my type of photography,mostly landscape, informal portraits, nice colors. Positives: reasonably fast focus, very good performance in low light, very lightweight, nice viewfinder. Only drawbacks are the slower flash sync shutter speed, some controls I use are only accessible in menu and IQ, a bit less latitude in shadows than my D800 but for the money the 6D is a bargain.
Summary: This is a great bundle. Nice camera. Nice lenses. It also came with an extra battery that I wasn't expecting. The camera is solid and heavy, especially with the 24-105mm lens. The bag is nice, but doesn't fit everything that great. I will eventually get a better bag. Overall it's a nice camera bundle and a pretty good deal considering everything it comes with.
Summary: I've had this camera around 6 months now so I decided to write the review. In my mind you can't really write a review after owning the camera for a day or even a week. I have thoroughly tested this camera as a semi-pro photographer. I have taken just over 10,000 pictures with it. I have used it for many professional gigs included food photography, studio portraits, fashion and interior/architectural. I have used it for leisure on family trips and urban hiking.
Conclusion: I've owned Canon SLRs for a number of years and have used the 450D, 40D and recently migrated from a Canon 5DMKII. Unfortunately there are two things I really do not like about this camera: 1. The buttons you use to zoom in when reviewing images on the LCD have been changed. Instead of the AE lock and AF point selection buttons, you now use the Main Dial button. I hate this and would like the option to toggle this back to the behaviour on the xxxD, x0D and 5D.
Conclusion: This camera takes amazing pictures with depth, detail, true to life colors, and above normal high ISO handling. I thought the built in GPS would not be too useful, however I find myself using it to figure out elevation changes during our hikes. The downside to the camera is the focusing system. They should have used the 7D's system. Clearly it is a marketing move to keep a separation between it and the 5D III.
Pros: good battery life, quiet, Quick Start-up time, excellent image quality, Bright LCD, Solid Operation, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use, built-in gps, built-in wifi
Cons: Missing features/settings, skimpy focusing system, should have dual button functions
Summary: This camera takes amazing pictures with depth, detail, true to life colors, and above normal high ISO handling. I thought the built in GPS would not be too useful, however I find myself using it to figure out elevation changes during our hikes.
Excerpt: Camera: Canon 6D Type of photography: Commercial landscape photography Lenses used: 16-35L II and 70-200 F4L IS Website: http://www.johaneickmeyer.com Overview: The Canon 6D is an incredible landscape camera that offers many ways to utilize creativity and satisfy the need for outstanding image quality. My review is based on a season of extensive use in nothing but landscape photography. I have no opinion in regards to the 6D and other types of photography.
