The D6 has a new firmware update available. This improves autofocus performance, as well as tweaks Auto ISO performance. Click here to get the link.
The D6 appeals to pros, sports and wildlife photographers, and comes with a big price tag. But you get what you pay for. I have been consistently impressed with this camera. The 3D focus tracking at 14FPS is stunning, and a big step up from the D5 (we shoot both cameras daily). Take a look at this kayaking shot. I just put the sensor on the kayaker’s face, and the D6 locked onto him as he moved in the frame. If you are a Nikon photographer planning a wildlife safari this summer, consider renting this camera at Lens Rentals for the trip. You won’t be disappointed.
