| p.1 #13 · 5D2 vs 6D: What's your verdict? |
5D2 Proven Advantages:
CF card vs. SD card
Not an advantage. It all depends on what camera you're upgrading from, doesn't it? The SD Card compatibility of a 6D would be advantageous for upgraders who use SD cards (i.e. 650D, 60D, D7000, Micro Four Thirds, Sony NEX).
You call a 0.9 megapixel difference a "significant" advantage? Really?
Huh? I never did. Why don't you read it again, but a little slower this time... I said "higher resolution" and yes, 21.x is higher than 20.x, unless you use some new math...
replaceable VF screen
The 6D also has replaceable VF screen. In fact, it uses the same Eg screens as the 5D2.
I looked, but couldn't find that, but I'm glad it does..
Possibly better weather resistance as opposed to "splash resistance"
You're just arbitrarily making stuff up now. There is no reason why anybody would come to that conclusion. How did you even come up with that?
Get a clue. That's what Canon says, not me. Why don't you read first, then make nonsense statements?
Twain said it best. "First get your facts. then you can distort them at your leisure".
No banding at high ISO (5D2 is terrible after ISO 6400) (NOT valid, No proof)
The 5D2 uses a sensor largely based on an old 2007 design. It's ancient. It has a 33% quantum efficiency, easily the lowest of any SLR still in production today. Newer Canon sensors have become increasingly more efficient with each generation. 7D has a 41% QE. The 1D4 has 44%. The 5D3 has 49%. It's more than reasonable to assume that the 6D will have a much higher efficiency than the 5D2.
Fine, show me the samples. I'm sure we all would like to see them... BTW - the 5d3 shows a miniscule improvement over the 5d2 in real life, but I'm sure you don't like that fact....
GPS tags location onto photos - unproven implementation
Uhhh... yes it is. Maybe you should actually read the 6D previews before you start spreading misinformation. The 6D isn't exactly the first Canon camera with GPS y'know.
Where? where's the demonstrable proof, because in reading several sites, it's no where to be found. Until I see it, and it could be out there somewhere, I'll just chalk it up to more nonsense on your part, which is 90% of what you say in all posts.
Wi-fi allows remote control via smartphone - unproven implementation
Maybe you should actually read the 6D previews before you start spreading misinformation. The 6D comes with an app for Android/iOS that feeds live view and remote control to smartphones.
Center AF point remains operational down to -3.0 eV (vs -0.5 eV) - unproven implementation
So you're saying Canon is lying about their specs sheet?
Am I saying they're lying? Nope. What's to lie about. They haven't said that it's any better than what we had in 2005 with the difference of 1 EV. Have they made claims that didn't live up to what they said in the past? Absolutely.
You either don't remember, or don't know what you're talking about (my vote). I purchased 2 1D3s. I purchased 3 or 4 5ds. Do I know that marketing literature doesn't equal reality? Yes. You apparently do not.
Silent shooting mode like 5D3 - unproven implementation
So yo're saying dpreview was lying in their preview article?
You're simply being obnoxious, jamessf99.
Thank you. I've always found you a dullard. Glad we got that out of the way..
