I finally got the reduced noise, and better focus I needed for sports. This may be a surprise from those reading some of the other reviews, but that single center focus point is much more precise than my 40D. I would have upgraded to a 5DIII or even a 1d* earlier, but there was no indication from reports that the effective circle of confusion was any better than my 40D, so I waited. Reports on the 6D showed that Canon finally made a big step here, and I can confirm they definitely did. I can comfortably shoot with my 135 F/2.0 on auto focus, where previous cameras showed the in-focus indicator on with a precision that was not good enough for me. Those cameras weren't front or back focusing, they just weren't picky enough, and quit early.
Those who have reported front or back focusing with this camera, I suggest you get the camera/ lens combination checked by Canon, especially if you are using an L lens.
The camera doesn't have the multiple cross focus points near the center of the frame like the more expensive cameras, but this means you need to practice keeping that single point on the subject.

The noise level is currently better than anything currently available from Canon. This is a big deal for sports in poor lighting, especially when flash is not allowed. Those extra pixels are helpful for cropping, especially when the final product is in the 24x36 print range.

Real crits:
The max 1/4000 shutter speed does hurt. 1/4000 second is actually fast enough for many sports, but on a bright day, the iso can't go low enough to get the correct exposure with F/2.8 and no neutral density filter. I paid big bucks for lenses to give me that bokeh, so I don't plan on stopping down any.

The max 1/180 second flash sync speed can be real crippling for those who are back lighting/ hair lighting with the sun.

Machine-gun style sports photographers: go elsewhere. But for sports shooters who prefer to time their shots precisely, the frame rate poses no problem.

Special note:
Some of the complaints others have made about this camera just don't apply to me.
1. I never shoot in any of the funky programming exposure modes, only manual, Av, and Tv. I recommend others avoid those other modes anyway, since there's no way the camera can *really* know what you want in the photo.
2. I have never used this camera for shooting video.
3. I have never used the GPS or WIFI
4. I only shoot with L lenses
5. I never use auto iso.

I am probably the ideal purchaser of this camera--we own a sizeable collection of high end Canon glass (macros, L lenses with IS, telephotos, etc) and have a crop sensor Canon that is a few years old. Engaged amateurs who want ONE camera body to serve all our DSLR needs for the next 3-4 years (in addition to a small travel camera).What I wanted in a new camera was:1) excellent reliable autofocus 2) full frame with excellent image quality and improved ISO capabilities3) the ability to take a variety of types of photographs from travel photography to photographs of children and friends to casual sports photography to casual but very good photos at parties and weddings and spontaneous life events4) lighter body and smaller price tag than the Mark 35) great video a plusCanon could easily have made such a great camera at this price point and persuaded a lot of people considering crop sensors to spend more for a fantastic camera. A gateway drug to Canon making serious money when all the happy 6D owners start buying nice Canon lenses. The ideal 6D would be a full frame camera with the best features of the 7D/70D. It could have GPS and Wifi to differentiate it from Nikon. The Mark III could still have more AF points and better weatherproofing and if sales of the Mark III dropped...well, bring on the Mark IV. Instead, it leaves me feeling that the marketing department is trying to squeeze every cent out of me to either buy a second body (for sports) or a better camera (the Mark III). One should feel happy after dropping $[$]. Not mildly annoyed.Autofocus. I am not getting tack sharp photos even with the central focus point and a tripod and superb (and just serviced) glass. This could be a defective unit or my technique so I am having this checked out, since others do not seem to have this issue. For sports (kids ice hockey indoors) the keeper rate is low. It just does not track well enough under those conditions and perhaps the AF is too slow even in servo to nail many shots.Obvious issues with easy fixes:1) One cannot shoot anything fast-moving except in TV mode (or M) because both P and AV mode will drop the shutter speed to absurdly low levels (like 1/15) before even thinking of bumping the ISO. This is absurd in a camera whose main selling point is the ISO range! The camera knows which lens is attached so it should know that this will result in a bad shot. It should also assume that one does not have a tripod attached (and could be designed to detect a tripod anyway). It is as though Canon took the algorithms from a 1980s camera and dropped it into the 6D without any further thought. In theory, you can set a minimum shutter speed in one of the controls, but the fastest programmable minimum speed is...wait for it...drumroll: 1/250. Or even children bolting around? Fairly useless. So the only way to shoot anything that requires >1/250 is TV (lose control of DoF) or of course M. Manual is no excuse for ill-considered algorithms. 2) In manual, one cannot use exposure compensation--why? 3) Why no firmware update to turn the GPS off when the camera powers down or is turned off as the default mode?So do I keep this almost good enough but really rather expensive camera ? or do I spring for something small and fun (Fujifilm X100s or similar) while waiting to see if Canon comes out with the 6D Mark II at a reasonable price?DREAM 6D MARK II--Superb AF: somewhere between 70D and 5D Mark III with ability to properly track moving subjects. All/most points cross-type sensors. --Same ISO capabilities as it has now--Joystick/easier adjustment of the AF points (since they would now be useful)--Change Creative Auto to allow one to pick the AF point (then it would be more useful for handing to a friend for a quick family snap)--Update the algorithms so that one can choose ranges for ISO, aperture and shutter speed across the whole range that the camera can usefully do (allow one to pick both shutter speed and aperture in program mode and to set the shutter speed range to anything one wants in AV)--lose the other amateur settings--have 3 user defined settings--pop up flash (there are always times...)--second card slot (not for me but everyone else wants this)--GPS turns off when camera is off or after x minutes of inactivity (user defined) as the default--eliminate the moire in videoI would happily spend $300 more for a 6D with much improved autofocus and NO other improvements. But I was not/am not willing to spend an extra $1300-1500 just for better autofocus (Mark III). To me that seems like too much for something that should already be there.Apologies for the long review, but writing it has helped me see that I cannot quite give the camera 4 stars. It should be a great all around camera but the problems with autofocus limit its utility to stationary objects. This is why I would give it 3.5 stars.

      Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

      The 6D is a good go-to general purpose camera, especially if you already have a bunch of EF mount lenses.

      Pros:
      - Full frame, excellent image quality -- can make the most of good lenses
      - Good for travel: lightweight, GPS
      - Focus system works very well, despite limited number of points.
      Cons:
      - No built-in way to trigger external flashes
      - Limited shooting rate

      No Regrets

      By zblindfishrman69

      from Chicago

      Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

      As an intermidiate user and fundamentalist photographer, I did extensive research on the 5d Mark III in which I finally purchased. Following the hype and been away from the DSLR world since the Canon 30D, I was a bit dissapointed. The 5d mk3 was bulkier in physical size than the 6d. I returned the 5d mk3 and purchased the 6d. Number one, it is half the price for the same full frame. Two, it is alot smaller and mid size than the Rebel series cameras in which fits above perfect for travel along with my 24-70mm, f2.8 L II lens. The combined camera and lens ratio are stunning! Very sharp pictures snd quiet shutter. I love this camera especially as an intermidiate user instead of all the entire bells and whistles which I probably wont use. I have no regrets in my purchase. However, I would purchase the 5d mk 3 in the future as I learn more of photography. I hope this helps as this learning did for me.

        This body is used Portrait and wedding photography. Love its quality and functionality. It is basically the same as the 5D MK III, but 1k cheaper and a few less options that I don't need anyway. Read Ken Rockwell's review to educate yourself. You can't go wrong here!

        I did a lot of research before buying and it paid off. The 6D is a remarkable camera for the price. the low light quality is phenomenal, the images are beautiful, and the camera is build well and comfortable to shoot with.

        Nice Upgrade

        By Laura K.

        from Ohio

        Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

        Bought this as a replacement/upgrade from an old Rebel XSi, so needless to say, this is a wonderful improvement! Image quality is superb, as is the low light performance. I love the wifi capability, that allows me to view/transfer images to my phone and control the camera w/o having a secondary remote. Some functions are in different places than the old Rebels, and it had a different feel, both in weight and handling, so it may take some time to become acclimated to it, but overall, the 6d is a solid upgrade that I'm very happy with.

          Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

          I use my 6D and this one is a complement to others we own, from Landscape and Architectural to portraits. I'm not sure it is the best for sports but that is not currently in my area. It has excellent color rendition, the 'canon' look is preferable to other Japanese brands. Yes one brand has become known for better high ISO and Light to Dark bandwidth, but those are special purpose areas that most photographers need very occasionally and for those times rental is a viable option. Owning a camera that is superior for 98% of your shooting is better than one which excels 3% of the time.

I have taken it out of the box, charged the battery and have taken pictures on the automatic settings and have been pretty happy. I will get more into the camera's actual abilities as I have time.

                      Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                      3 stars is odd for me on this, please read below. Overall this is a fantastic camera for the price (if you have good glass), but either what is being sent out is bad from the dealer or what is being sent to the dealer from Canon is bad. 3 cameras in a row had excessive amounts of sensor dust and smudges. More than any camera I have used for several years. So you be the judge below.So here's my story, I ordered the package deal of the Canon 6D with the Pixma Pro 100 printer back on New Years Eve. I was finally going to take the plunge into full frame and getting back into landscape/macro work that I haven't done in a long time, as I mainly shoot wildlife. When I got the camera, I was very happy with the few shots I took indoors, the level of detail and noise compared to my 7D and prior cameras I've had in the past. But then the next day I took it out shooting at f16/22 for some landscapes. And unfortunately there were dozens of spots and a few smudges in the upper left corner. This was very disheartening, because the rest of the pictures were very nice.I called B&H and they offered to swap it out and to go ahead and use the box I had from this one for the rebate. And I did, which was a big mistake, should have just sent the whole thing back, but I listened to what I was told to do so I wouldn't lose out on the money for the rebate.The swapped body came to me, and immediately threw a lens on it to check it against the sky at f22. And this one had even more dust in it, how can a brand new camera come with 40 black spots in it. B&H was very sorry for this and offered yet again, another swap. Fine, I did it, I'm frustrated but I did it because I want this camera for a trip in a few weeks.Well, today I got the 3rd camera, and yep, you guessed it, a bunch of black dots. Um, let's compare something here. My house is not dirty, and my 7D that I got off EBAY 3 years ago and has been through alot (and never cleaned), has about 1/3 the amount of dust this new camera has in it. I'll include a photo taken right from the packing, with a lens, and you can decide for yourself on if this is a common thing or if somethings off here. I had talked to Canon representatives prior to sending the 2nd one back, they said their QC would not allow that. So again, either these aren't new, they have a bad batch from Canon directly, or Canon QC is horrible these days. At this point I cannot say one or the other. But in the end, I have to go get this thing cleaned at my expense because I don't mess with Sensors, and yes I did try the normal blowing it out, but none of the large specks moved, a few light ones did. But this is excessive for a brand new camera.The offer to return it was a bit insulting, send all of it back (including the printer, that I really like, heck I like the 6D alot if it weren't for the stuff on the sensor). And they would offer me a much reduced price (yep, dummy me listened to them and cut the box for the rebate, should have listened to my inner voice screaming that I should send it all back and not cut anything, live and learn).So again, I'll get it cleaned at my expense and will no longer deal with B&H, while it truly may not be their issue, maybe it really is a bad batch, and they did try to work this out, I felt that the quality that was received on 3 cameras in a row was substandard, so my trust level is not good right now. And that's sad, because I've been dealing with B&H for a long time. But my frustration level is through the roof at this point.Now I worry about my warranty being honored (since I'm 3 cameras deep) and the rebate being done right (since there are 3 camera numbers involved here). Just a total mess at this point, and hopefully will only be out the money to clean it and not anything else.

                        Great body, reasonable price.
                        Un-tethered remote trigger with no extra parts is awesome. Wi-Fi to iMac, Laptop, iPad or iPhone for remote trigger and manipulation is amazing.

                        Features are awesome but require some custom tweaks:
                        (Couldn't get LiveView to work with RF syncs at first)

                        customize ISO control - "Set" button to control ISO w/ shutter dial
                        customize AF control - "Arrow Pad" button to control AF
                        customize LiveView for flash trigger - Silent LV: disable

                        Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                        In the experimental stage as this is my first venture into the Full Frame Camera world. I am using it right now with a 50mm 1.8 Canon lens and love it, so glad I purchased this Camera. It does lack some features that are offered on the Nikon D610 like less focus points (11 compared to 39) but for my use that is a non factor. Another issue some may have is no onboard flash, again, not a factor for me as I like to shoot in natural light settings. This camera is awesome in low light as well.

                            Comments about Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                            I've been shooting with the 7D for the past few years and while I love that body, I realized over time that I really needed a full-frame sensor to be able to capture the best shots/angles/etc for the type of work I do, portraits. Being based in Seattle means learning to shoot with limited natural light during long stretches of the year. The 6D allows more natural light to filter in than my 7D, giving me brighter and less graining pictures. I've only had this camera for a couple weeks now and have my first wedding of the New Year this Saturday. Excited to see how it performs, though I have no doubt that it won't disappoint!

                              The Canon 6 D, especially at the current price point, is one of the "sleepers" out there that more people should be aware of. It combines exceptional low light sensitivity with ease of use and full 35mm frame size. Unlike other brands, the software is well organized and functional ... meaning that there is what you need, and no more. When "modded" with a special rejection filter that allows the H-Alpha wavelength to be recorded, this camera has no competition for astrophotography, including the Nikon 810A which costs twice as much. It is relatively compact and light weight yet solidly built. It is not made for rapid action use like the 7D Mark II, but for everything else, it is superb.
