there is not such a thing called half frame. It's called crop factor which means 6D has 1.5x bigger sensor than d7100.#

What you wont find here is the quality of the focus systems and the after sales service. quality control and reliability. I bet you that the focus system on the Canon will be faster and more accurate than the Nikon. And Nikon's latest lack of quality control is disgusting. What they have done to D600 owners is shocking. So check all the specs and do your homework yes, but don't think just because something has more AF points that it's going to beat the other that has less

Sure it would, the Nikon D7100 was voted by many tech sites as the best DSLR of 2013.

You sure it's half frame?

Check the comparison and you would see.

Full frame vs Half Frame = Different by half. That all. Noob Site.

Hey Vitalishe, looks like it got updated so there is consistency now. The D7100 beats the 5DM2.

This site has a problem with consistency.
I just compared D7100 with 5DM2, where the last totally dominated the first.
Then compared 6D with 5DM2 and 6D was a winner.
I would expect 6D also totally dominate D7100, instead I see only 3 points difference (almost a tie).
Where is the logic?
