...the  Hyper Suprime-Cam, developed by Canon in 1972, marked the end of the company's pursuit of viable lens prototypes for colonoscopy purposes...

Too bad the 6D's buttons weren't placed a couple centimeters more to the right, that would've knocked at least US$500 to it's price.  Bummer.  ???

For me it is the Canon 17-40L, Canon 24-70 2.8L and the 70-200 2.8L IS II, but shhhhhh will try to sneak the 100 2.8L when noone's looking.  :-X

A few weeks ago I did a product shoot alone, working the camera (6D), lights and reflector all by myself.  Midway through the shoot and with my back starting to ache a bit from picking up products, placing them in the stand, checking the composition in the camera, picking up and moving the reflector around, etc I realized I had the wifi function and started using it.  Now I didn't have to go the camera to check the composition as I placed the products in the stand and could check perfectly in real time how the light was hitting the product bounced in the reflector as I moved it accordingly, all in the screen of my iphone.  Definitely NOT a gimmick.

Reviews / Re: Why I Chose a Canon EOS 6D over a 5D MKIII

Awesome review, thanks.  My situation was quite similar.

I am reading up a lot on this, preparing for purchasing a 7D classic, and everyone seems to agree that the 18mp APS-C sensor is capable of excellent results, providing it is paired with a "good enough lens".

So, my question is: Which lenses ARE good enough for the 18mp APS-C sensor?

Lots of answers are: "L mark II"

So, is it only L mark II that are "good enough" for 7D? Where do you draw the line? At L-glass?
Is the 85mm f1.8 good enough? The 70-300 non-L? the 17-40L?

If someone had a list of "good enough" lenses, I would (and I think others too) appreciate it a lot. Especially where to draw the line. L mark II are WAY out of my budget, so lets set the limit to 1000$.

Which lenses are good enough (sharp and resolving power) for the 18mp APS-C sensor, below 1000$?

Come on! Give me some nice recommendations! (3rd party is fine too) :)

To me, the Canon 10-22 or the Tokina 11-16 is a must.

Other than that, a 24-105L for standard all around zoom and a 50 1.4 for portraits/bokeh and you're all set. 

If you like macros, the 100 2.8L IS is awesome.

Dear Ryan Williams:

We appreciate your continued interest in Canon products

After further investigation and inquiries with our engineers, we have discovered that we cannot tell our asses from our elbows. This issue has been ecsalated to the janitorial staff, so they can squeegee our eyeballs and vacuum our ears, in the vain hope that our observational skills and ability to listen to customers will be improved.

Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.  Thank you for choosing Canon.

Bad?, best camera ever!  ;D

All pics on my website taken with 7D:

That said, ISO 1600 is as high as I went, 3200 if absolutely necessary to get the shot.  You can always reduce noise on post though.  For your needs I think is more than OK, unless you plan to use isos higher than 1600 often, then I'd recommend going full frame.

Amazon has Canon 6D body only at $1999 with additional 6% back in Amazon credits (good as cash to me) for net out at $1879 no tax/shipping.  Would like to order the kit with 24-105mm, may wait for same percent back deal on kit ....

Oh and by the way, the 6% Amazon rewards credit also applies for the kit.

I got in on the Amazon 6D offer a few days ago.  They just received stock yesterday.  The offer is good until January 1st.

What about minimum advertised pricing (MAP)?

They just put something like "Add to cart to see price" and apparently problem solved.  What a relief lol.

Pricewatch Deals / 6D - Amazon - US$1,880 after promotion

Right now the price of the 6D at Amazon is US$1,999 .  They also have a 6% Amazon reward (30 days after purchase) that will be credited to your account.  Just in case someone is looking for one, I think it's a great deal.
