5D3 is no sharper.

However, at least the 5D3 delivers a softish '1920x1080' without that nasty moire and aliasing, so it does a WAY better job and can look a bit filmic, this looks super video-ish. This is not a good results. But then gain Canon marketing MBA loves LOVES their internal market segmentation and purposeful crippling (other brands and products capabilities and threats be damned).

Part of me thinks that looks to have a bit worse aliasing than the 5D2 even.

I watched it in HD on a 27" mac and I did not think it looked all that bad, but then I'm no video expert. I could see the moire but thought it was sharp in the right areas. I used to have a friend who listened to music years gone by on old vinyl and all he did was spend his time looking for flaws, I see that time and time again with people on forums. More interested in criticising sharpness at 200% in the bottom left hand corner of a frame that 99.99% of people don't look at instead of just getting on with it, there's a guy like that at my Camera Club, will criticise everyones images technically, but has never entered a competition himself. He spends 99% of his time at his pc instead of 99% of his time behind the camera.

Anyway was "(1250 is very mush usable)" a deliberate typo?  ;)

i fully understand what you say... but then... this is a new product.
when a new product is not better then a older one there is no sense in wasting money on it.

that´s why i critizise the 6D video.

Define 'better'.  For some people, the lower cost of the 6D makes it significantly better, especially if the IQ is no worse...

I hear the video quality is more on par with the Mark 2.

In addition what I just found out today and made my cry is that the Canon 6D cannot be controlled over Wifi for shooting video. Thats too bad because that was what I really hoped for.

Canon - why ? On the manual page 15 it says - when Wifi is enabled movie shooting is disabled http://t.co/hl4QR6Og

I guess I get the Mark 2 or Mark 3 instead. Just not sure if the Mark 3 is worth the money over the Mark 2. . .

Wait for a firmware update lol.
Cameras are all about video these days, shame, shame. Seriously why release a video before images, isn't it a camera?

Canon has and will always put photography before video, the line skipping method of downsampling proves it.  I would be happy to have just a Canon Rebel that could properly downsample the sensor for 1080p with a method other than line skipping.

No comment on the video as I have not watched it.

What surprises me is Canon has again released a brand new XD series without a headphone jack.

The 1D X does not have one and now this latest model from Canon does not have one.

Not all of us want to use external recorders to monitor sound levels during a recording.

Bizarre.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

But the 1D C does, as does the 5DIII.  Seems like Canon is differentiating between bodies that can shoot video (which is all of the current ones, obviously), and bodies that are intended to be used for video.

That's fine, and I can understand the logic (sort of). But if that is what they are doing then why bother sticking video in at all. Surely a headphone jack can't be that big a deal for the engineers or the camera itself, but I am not an engineer.

I am one of those guys that thinks if you are going to do something do it right, and as it is almost 2013 and as this new 6D does have video then in my eyes it should have a headphone jack. And the 1D X as the flagship should have all the bells and whistles.

Will be interesting to see what they do with the 7D ii and the new High MP cameras.

do i have to?
i thought it is pretty clear i talk about VIDEO QUALITY?

and what lower cost?
last time i checked the 5D MK2 was cheaper...  :)

That was one of the biggest advantages for me considering 6D: Wifi + video -> like external monitor android smartphone or tablet+ similar video quality like MarkIII, but now I even don't know what to say. Also I think Its to early to make conclusion only from one test. Maybe results from final product will be better.
