It's aimed for the guy who likes taking photos on vacation or travel, has worked for a few years and has a bit more disposable income now, and can graduate from the Rebel series to a FF sensor without feeling absolutely horrible about the price.
I couldn't agree more. I think the 6d is the enthusiast camera, and I don't mean that in a bad way. . I'm glad I purchased it (so far).
And though the d600 looks way better on paper, but I think they'll give similar results. (minus the oil spots on the sensor for canon)
Ditto. I don't expect anything but a premium "enthusiast" camera. So when mine shows up, I'll see if the AF is better than my recently departed 5D2 and the ISO performance similar to 5D3. If yes on both accounts I'll be good to go and enjoy the lighter weight and smaller size. Basically a FF 60D on 'roids.
Same boat here-- owned a 5D2 until recently and when the 5D3 came out, it looked great-- but I couldn't justify spending that much for being an enthusiast who only shoots occasionally.
The 6D seems to hit the right spot for me-- a full frame enthusiast dSLR. 5D3 is definitely more camera than I need.
If the 6D can provide comparable low light results to the 5D3, I'm good-- and hopefully AF is a notch better than the 5D2 (sounds like it definitely is in low light) but I've always been a center point AF guy.
Kinda jealous of those of you who already have yours
