Not for everyone. My favorite full-frame camera (Leica M9) is noisy at ISO 1600 and ugly at ISO 2500. Full frame is more about using tone and color, not to mention death of field then just high ISO. Modern crop sensors are good to ISO 3200 and even 6400 for some, so full frame at its best is only worth another stop, two at most.

Glad to see you in such a nice polite mood and such nice language. Come to that, why do you care? It did nothing to you except maybe take a little time to read and scroll through.

They were to show the IQ of the 6D with and without flash indoors and outdoors just in case there are any doubts or any advice that an "entry level" FF isn't capable. It is called a "teaching moment/opportunity" and after 34 years in the classroom it is second nature to me to respond to such.

Based on what you shoot, you might consider a Canon 6D. I have both the 7D II and 6D. I use the 7DII (Crop Frame) for moving subjects, like sports, birds in flight, etc., but find the 6D (Full Frame) is more than adequate for people, architecture, landscape. It does not have a super-duper auto focus, but that's not really an issue for the kinds of things you listed. Also, the 6D is very good in low light and can be had (if in stock) as a Canon refurbished (in their refurb store) for around $1099. Are there "better" Canon full frames? Yes, but for what you are shooting, the 6D is an exceptional camera at a relatively reasonable price.

The 6Ds ISO limits are very high. You can shoot at 1600 or 20,000 and still end up with a very good and "clean" image. Plus, the price is right!!!!! It's an excellent camera and Canon tech support confirms this!

Looking for advice on a canon full frame. I shoot landscapes and grandkids mostly. There are so many different ones out there. Any help is greatly appreciated. I have Sony A7711 now.

I'd sell my like-new one at a good price, like a low-mileage 6D + $500.

You are right, the 5D3 is a fantastic camera, but its also a rather heavy one.


What is shutter count on 6D ?

I have a 5D3, not a 6D. I want to downgrade. I believe the shutter count is around 5,000. Maybe a little more or a little less, but pretty close. I used it for one major trip and a few small projects and bought it new in June.

OK, I misunderstood thought it was 6D.
Thanks so much.

5D3 would be great for fast-moving grandkids, but is overkill for landscape and heavy for travel.

Someone on here had a breakdown of the whole Canon Range. I seem to think the 1 series was a landscape camera, 2 was studio etc etc So having the 'best camera' for landscape and portrait may require two different ranges.
