The Canon 6D is extremely impressive.  Hands down one of the best cameras we have ever owned.  The best way to describe it is that it’s a contemporary canon 5D mk II – With an updated processor, sensor, and a few other upgrades here and there.  It’s the ideal full frame Canon without spending a fortune.  6D’s are being found as low as $1400 new now.  It’s a great time to capitalize on the recent price drop.

If the 6D was a car, it would probably be a Nissan GTR.  It’s not top of the line, but is sure performs like it.  Under the hood it’s running a 20.2 megapixel sensor for precision detail.  And yes, it performs well on every megapixel.  It’s got the DIGIC 5+ Image Processor to allow for better processing, such as the HDR mode.  These are two of the key pieces of hardware that allow the 6D to perform so well.  I am especially impressed with the low light (high ISO) performance.
