When I see all those great samples here I really can not understand, why the first official canon samples all looked so weak ...

A nice collection of shots, however, most of them do not say much about the 6D AF capability, or lack of it. I'd like to see some sports, car racing, dogs running and bird flying shots.

This is not a "6Ds AF system works it all best" thread, Peter. Car racing should be possible, imo. It already was with 5D II. If different fast sports, running dogs and bif shots would be ones photographic fullfillment he/she would go 5D III or 1D X, I guess.

Ralph.....this doesn't appear to be a " Shoot only stationary targets with 6D" thread either, is it ?
Instead, I see it as a "shoot anything" thread.

Now, how does one know if 6D is good or bad for action tracking, unless one tries to shoot action ? I wouldn't say that I'd expect 6D to be lousy or great at capturing action. I am saying let us hear from someone who has also tried to photograph action with it.......then that becomes a meaningful experience feedback based on real photography, as opposed to some forumography banter.

I'd love to see some action shots with it. We know it won't have the capabilities of say a 5DIII and won't be used for professional sports but it would be nice to get a look at just how well it handles some motion.

I'd be interested in seeing it track moving vehicles, children, animals and some amateur sports as examples.

Ralph, until then, can't you borrow the camera from CPS or your camera store for a couple of days ?

I am trying out the 6D for events, last weekend at a carnival shooting. My 1D3/4 and (I suppose 1Dx/ 5D3) are simply faster and granting more security to get good results in a timecritical and dynamically moving environment. for such shootings the 6D is a slow type IMO, while itís IQ is very good. No problem for portrait shooting in crowds, even people are moving. No problem to shoot BIF. but you just get SOME (very nice) pics while my good old 1D's would have generated much more output. I really like the 6D as landscape, walkaround and alltime camera, but for moving stuff (including action), the AF responsiveness is not convincing me. But thatís no problem.

Thanx Eland, so some action tracking feedback is available, after all.

I take it that same could be said about the 5D2... I've never shot with one so I don't know; but I'd assume that you're buying tools for a specific trade?
The 6D is an entry level FF camera, if it had the 7D AF system it would be fighting it out with the 5D3 which Canon don't want... for my purposes the 6D is perfect but I understand that not everyone feels like this

can i be honest ? i never tried the 6D servo mode for events or BIF. in most of the cases the camera's AF is responding quite accurately and overall i am getting nicely exposed tack sharp results. The 6D surprises me.
but --- I successfully "tracked" BIF in single shot center AF mode with the little 200L mounted. thats such a sweet light 200mm-combo !
seems i have to go out next and servo-drive that combo...

Eland, I guess I never tried (on purpose, that is) shooting BIF in "One shot AF" mode, so you are way ahead of me there.

However, I think Servo AF mode should work better on BIF, with preselected center AF point only.

If you'd like to challenge the camera and see how much difference that (-3 EV) AF sensor makes, these are a few ways of doing it:

(1) Low light level on the target.
(2) Low contrast target
(3) Target small in VF
(4) Target moves towards the camera, straight or oblique.
(5) Target is fast
(6) Mottled high contrast background, not very distant

I do not own the gear for qualifying for CPS.
My dealer would give it to me for a couple of hours I guess. But I am pretty sure I would like and love to keep it, I guess. Before I would cry if I have to bring it back or do some else silly things I prefere to wait till I can afford it. I purchased to many things I could not afford in my former life ;-)
