I can't remember, but you've used 5D and 5DII, right?
This is a much more enjoyable camera IMO than both. The 5D is a classic for a reason, but this makes me forget that it ever existed. I have owned and shot 3 5D's.
The 5DII did not do it for me, I owned one for 3 days. Wasn't improved in the right areas over the original, whereas this certainly is.
No. I stepped up from 50D to 5D II. Never owned a 5D and shot it only twice. I purchased a 5D II instead the 5D because I needed higher resolution (what I am more than happy with now), higher usable ISO (what I still do) and better high ISO jpegs (again I still do but even higher). The 6D offers it. And adds some up to date additional features I could really use: Better AF and reliable center point in out of light situations, top sensor/IQ, silent mode, great(est) high ISO jpegs ooc, great build and much more comfortable feel (in fact never a camera felt so good in my hands - 5D III does not, 1D X does not - no Nikon ever did, nor any offer of other brands. it feels in between 30/40D and 5D II - but more personal, more natural, more, more ... like more). It felt like constructed for my hands. I do not like MA anyway. Imo A lense should fit to a body and work great. But if necessary, different MA on both ends of a zoom lense is the only working (in hope) solution. At least: wifi was not expected. But I am pretty sure it will help me with some special efforts of some of my customers.
