I guess the megapixel war is over, taken over by iso war. I dont understand the need for iso 102800. I know it's a good camera with minimal noise, but who would wanna take unusable pictures? Pics taken at iso 102800 would look worse than a 1.3 mp cellphone camera. Maybe there are people who choose to use high iso over slower shutter speed and bigger aperture. Nonetheless, the 6d looks like a solid camera. I dont care much about af points. This is the camera that canon fans had been waiting for since... Forever. I'm keeping my 5d2 though

The 5D3 is a worthy upgrade from the 5D2. I can't say the same about the 6D.

I would think if you have an ISO 102800, then all the others below it would be more usable. I shoot occasionally at 1600ISO, and my camera goes up higher but I don't use it cause its not that good.I could go 6400ISO but its not good. If I had a camera that has an ISO102800 then I can use 6400ISO. I saw this foto today and thought it was pretty decent exposure

ISO25600 with D600.



D600 kit $2k vs 6D kit $2700


The shutter on both cameras is still pretty fast compared to what was out years ago. Even if you shoot rapid fire, you will probably use only 2-3 of those images. Shutter speed is fine. Frames per second is shorten because of the buffering. (my guess). lol

Nikons have slightly better dynamic resolution. Something I envy a little with my 5dIII. I was seriously considering picking up a D800 instead but had invested too much in EOS gear.
