| p.27 #7 · 6D - hands on & first experience |
I've been following this thread at a distance for some time. I can honestly say I had no interest in the 6D when it was announced but my resistance is beginning to fail. Having moved from a 40D to a 7D, then to the 1dIII, each felt a bit bigger in the hand and I was happy with the ergonomics of the increasingly larger bodies. Now that images are emerging along with first hand user testimonials, I decided to head to my local shop and see the 6D for myself.
First impression: I wish it was a wee bit bigger but I did like the fit and finish (quite grippy). Button layout and menus were all foreign of course but surely a person could get used to it. Long story short, I liked it enough to arrange a return trip in the new year. I will take one or two of my own lenses and a memory card so I can return home with images to assess.
If I could manage to keep my 1dIII I would, but at this time I must remain a one body guy . I'll weigh in again once I've spent more time playing but in the meantime, thank you for starting this thread and happy new year (to all)!
1d3 and 6d are different cameras. Would you miss the fps? You need both.
