Definitely 6D. Whenever I get 7D files from 2nd photographers the images make me feel uncomfortable. Just something off about them.



You are not alone in sensing that.

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.


All the merits you note on the 1D3 are true and the reason I won't be getting rid of my 1D3. I still prefer it for wildlife shooting but just about everything else, I now go to my 6D. Which in my opinion, has the brighter viewfinder and better image quality.

Seems like the 7D, though not perfect, is the way to go.

Thanks everyone.

Which so it it should. 20MP vs 10MP FF vs 1.3x crop, 5 years newer technology. No surprise there. But for AF for fast action work, how do they compare? Better to get sharp keepers with 10MP than OOF shots with 20MP.

+2.

Having owned a 7D (and coming from a 5D) image quality was its weakest point IMO, but handling and speed is very good. You can get good to great IQ from it, sure, but it just seems to demand very good light before the detail starts to pop out.

I'm in a simliar situation as you, I've had the 1DIII for the past six months and loved it. Decided to try a 7D and so far I'm not in love with it like I was the 1D. There's nothing "wrong" with it, just more of a personal taste for how the files look and handling of it. But I'm trying to get a single camera to "do it all", sports/landscapes/portraits/travel and have about decided to save a little longer and get a used 5D3 for around $2600. The biggest thing I'll lose is the reach from both the 1D & the 7D crops but what I gain will more than make up for that. If having two bodies isn't an issue for you I'd got for the 7D/5DII (or even 5D) combo like some others have suggested. Or you could wait for the rumored 7DII but I never bother with things that don't exist.

True... you can chase wildlife or other action shots with the 6D, you just have to anticipate more. The 1D3 does give you an advantage with the AF speed and fps.

As speedy as cameras are today, even the 6D, it makes you wonder how we did it years ago with manual film cameras.

I don't remember but does the 6d allow for the same button reassignment as the 7d/5d3?

Also does the 6d have spot AF... on all AF points?

I can't find any info on the above on the web.

Our expectations were lower, I think. And we were generally looking at 3x5 or 4x6 prints, not 100% crops on HD monitors. Makes a difference.

Poll results show a three way tie. Seems like I can't go wrong

Yes. Page 320 of the User Manual discusses button reassignment. I don't know if "the same button reassignment as the 7D/5D3" - I don't have either of those cameras.

No.

IMO the craft has transformed. And that's one of the reasons I vociferously opposed the concept of frame grabs from HD video as being legitimate photographs.

The awareness one had to have shooting action manually, cranking the film advance to the point of almost ripping the film - good stuff.
