Yep, and I can't imagine them releasing that feature in a $2000 camera, but not having it in their $3500 camera as well. While it might benefit enthusiast users more, I am sure there are a few pros that would have gladly taken the crop mode for times they had to do sports, etc.Is it possible the 6D could be a 7D replacement that matches or exceeds the current 7D in crop mode, but also provides for a full frame mode?
I don't think so, Canon has separated the two worlds quite distinctively in the past, for example ef-s lenses don't work on ff so you have to buy new gear when upgrading. I don't see why they'd change that now because I expect them to be quite happy to sell *two* camera bodies to people wanting crop reach and ff iso quality. Anyway, a crop mode imho will only make sense with a high 35-40mp body so enough resolution is left.
Its a nice idea for a feature, but, with the way the mounts work, I'm just not sure I see them doing it
