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
« on: December 26, 2012, 11:14:57 AM »
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.

Bought it on Amazon for about US$1880, after promotions. Only thing is it's temporarily out of stock, but I can wait.  It was 1,999 last night plus a 6% reward as an Amazon credit in about a month.  Good deal.

EOS Bodies / 6D Review - The Digital Picture

They had charts and comparison pics a few days before but now it seems to be a full review.  Looks good to me.

I never use a UV filter.  I agree with those who feel that adding a 100 piece of glass in front of a 2000 state of the art lens degrades IQ.  I understand the need to protect that investment though, I always use the hood which does protect a bit and am extremely careful.

Shipped from Hong Kong and you have to add US$209 for warranty, seems fishy. Thanks though.

Well if it's anything like the 5D3 it'll be $600 by June.

Well, it looks like the 6D has already dropped by $130 to $1969.
...

Where??, can't find it.

I was also thinking about the Yongnuo st-e2, but I'm not sure if it's compatible with the 6D.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 7D: 'I need a Must Have's List'

If you love your 7D, You will hate the 6D. After owning the 7D, I wouldn't want anything less than its AF and the 5D3 is that camera for me IMO. You will have to ditch the Kit lens from the 60D with either camera.

Not true! different cameras for different things, I have a 7D and will buy a 6D as a second body.  Great combo.  Now, if he's selling the 7D to buy a 6D and shoots a lot of sport pics and moving subjects then that's a different thing (even though many pros got by pretty well with the 5D markII for years!).

Why not just buy a Mk2 and save 600$? Afterall, he's not going to shoot sports with either the 6D or 5D2.

Sure, that works too.

If you love to shoot landscapes then you should consider the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens to pair with your 7D. For a daily walk around lens, you may as well consider the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens.

Agreed. 10-22 is without a doubt my preferred lens for the 7D (also check the Tokina 11-16).  A good flash is also a must, the 430 exII will do.  With the 7D you can use it as a wireless slave, great for portraits and everything else.

EOS Bodies / Re: Moving to 6D from 5DII

Ive owned a 5Dii for 4 years and am still keeping it, mainly for diving. I have also been shooting with the 6D for nearly 2 weeks now. There are 3 main differences you are getting with the 6D:

1. Better Central Focus Square
2. Better High ISO Noise
3. Wifi Tethering

Granted there are a few other differences here and there, but in my opinion, and it is only my opinion, these three are the biggest. Is it worth the extra $300?

Ive also posted a video on Youtube showing side by side comparisons of the 5Dii vs 6D with ISO noise in low light:

Canon 6D vs 5DII - Is the 6D worth the extra cost & why? Comparison Tutorial

And have focus speed tests on my blog: www.michaelthemaven.com

Great video! I'm really liking the 6D!

That won't be much of an upgrade over the 5D2, Save alittle more for a 5D3.

That's what I'm looking for:  Is the move from a 5DII to a 6D an upgrade or not?  Or in my case, do you save the money on getting the once raved about proven performer or go with the new?

Yes, it is an upgrade.  In this chart (The-Digital-Picture) you can see the 6D improvements over the 5D mkII in red.  Do those improvements justify the move? only you can decide.

In 6 to 8 years you won't even need to take the lens cap off!
