I'm looking to pick up a full frame Canon and the 5D II and 6D are the ones within my budget. I'm trying to get a handle of the differences between the two, perhaps I can get some help here from those who have knowledge about them.
The 6D seems smaller and with some plastic in the build, not sure if the build is actually worse?
Shutter speed reduced to 1/4000 from the 1/8000 in the 5D (not happy about this)
The 6D has an option for a more quiet shutter? (I like this a lot)
Removal of a couple of buttons, noticably for me the focus point selection joystick (a negative)
The GPS in the 6D is a nice plus
Any word yet on the focus point spread and abilities between the two? I'm quite disappointed to hear that apparently the focus points are all packed together in the 6D, I rarely focus near the centre, and focus-recompose doesn't work for me (too limited dof). Which leaves manual focus, but that's tricky for the speed I usually need. Does the 6D offer replacement focusing screens?
Any other differences I may have missed?
