Ok now I have to get out my 1D3 to check the statement that the 6D has a brighter viewfinder. I'm not sure that it does.
The 1D3 offers 100% viewfinder coverage, a much better AF system, and the image quality is pretty darn good, even if it has only 10 megapixels. I've printed 1D3 photos at large sizes and been plenty pleased with the results.
It shoots at 10 fps, has 19 cross-type AF sensors with 26 assist points, offers great battery life, and AF-point Linked Spot metering.
There is a lot to like about the 1D3.
But it's not full frame, and try getting a useable 12,800 ISO image.
Like I said, I have both cameras - but the 6D goes with me almost everywhere, and it's not just because of image quality.
I'm disappointed overall in the AF system, it's 2013 and it feels like 2006 all over again.
But I can live with it. I've used the center AF and recomposed for so long it's second hand. But I guess Canon needed to give some people a reason to also have a 5D3 in their bag.
If you've never had a 5D2 - check it out. You'll be amazed.
