How is a single cross AF sensor (that goes to -3 eV) different from another whose (9) cross sensors are all clustered together in the middle?
By definition, nine AF points work with more data to identify focus.
No matter how good a single AF point is, it cannot do the job of nine AF points of similar quality.
Thinking otherwise is wishful (distorted?) thinking.
In general, the 6D will surely have excellent image quality. That’s a given.
The (essentially) single-point AF system, though, is a major letdown.
The 6D + 35L combo, for example, costs ~$3500 – and yet, I can't be confident that it will focus accurately.
Thanks, but no thanks.
Of course if one sticks to the 24-105/4L kit lens (or the new 24-70/4L), AF accuracy might not be an issue.
Still, Canon has no right to be so stingy with the AF - considering the prices they’ve been charging recently.
