I'm very pleased that they are, because I own a 60D & am thinking of upgrading to F/F 6D, so I want to compare them to see what I had to gain if I changed. I have one very specific reason for considering F/F, - I use my camera solely for macro photography, using a Canon 100mm f2.5 IS macro lens. When mounted on a crop sensor body, it provides a magnification factor of 1.6 (equivalent of 160mm focal length), this results in an extremely limited d. of f. & generally I find it too long.

This site generates comparisons, wich means you can compare whatever cameras you want. This specific page you are seeing was generated because you asked so.

I have both these cameras. I don't think they can be compared.
