with all the complains about canons 6D autofocus why is no website, that cares about canon in one way or the other, writing an open letter to canon... demanding a statement?
i mean.... dpreview wrote it´s a rather dissapointing camera and i have yet to read a preview that is not puzzled by the low-tech AF.
if we complain here in a forum .. canon cares a sh*t.
but if a popular and frequented website writes something and is not afraid to tell the truth... maybe canon will take notice and feel obligated to react?
or maybe it´s to late here and im just bored and tired.....
The 6D is supposed to excel at low-light autofocus. If you don't need that, then it probably wasn't built for you but rather for users who need that. If you have different needs for AF, Canon offers the 5D3 and 1DX. If none of those meet your needs, there are Nikon and Sony and others. Why complain that Canon isn't making the exact camera you want at the price you want at the time that you want it? No manufacturer can satisfy everyone. If Canon builds the exact camera that you want, then other potential buyers can rightfully "demand a statement" as to why Canon didn't build the camera that they wanted at the price that they wanted at the time that they wanted it. There would be no end to such statements. Besides, who has tested the 6D's AF and found it lacking? People are complaining before they can even try the camera.
You can't be serious?!
"Excel at Low Light performance"?
You actually believe that marketing bull***t?
Have you read what else Canon has to say about the 6D on their website?
They actually say stuff like, "with continuous shooting up to 4.5fps, you are ready to capture fast action".
That line was actually taken from their description:http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_6d
Unless "fast action" is a Seniors' Walk-a-Thon, the 6D is not ready to capture jack.
My point is the talk about "excelling at Low Light performance" is most likely equally fabricated marketing hype.
And as far as the guy complaining about it, he is well within his right to do so if he is to plunck down his money for one. It always amazes me how people run to Canon's (or any other major company's) rescue when others complain about their subpar efforts. The guy has every right to complain about the 6D because in this day and age, it is a crap effort from a company that should know better. And as long as people just sit their and say nothing, Canon will continue to put out subpar equipment at overflated prices backed overhyped marketing. Every Canon camera put out this year was good but could have been a hell of a lot better for what they are charging. But the 6D is just plain crap. Period.
