EOS Bodies / Re: Adorama is selling 5d3 for $2745 on eBay now

That's crazy.  Wonder if there is a catch, i.e. grey market, etc?
Almost thought about picking up a second 5D III at that price..
It's from Adorama mate, if you heard of B&H, they both are very large Canon USA Authorised Dealers. So not grey!

Maybe I post in the wrong section, but I don't think many people visit "price watch deal" section

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 6D Specs Leaked?

Digicame-info just updated the specs:

Viewfinder coverage:97%, Magnification:0.71X
Size: 144.5x110.5x71.2mm(not 114.5, my mistake)
Af: A new strong low light detection model

5D2 has a 98% viewfinder coverage, D600 is 100%
A new released Pentax k-5 II claimed their 11 point AF detection range is from -3EV, so Canon has a similar one??

Nikon and Sony have completely out foxed Canon.

Totally irrelevant. What matters is if they out sell Canon.  For the past several years, they have demonstrated a complete lack of ability to do so.  Keep in mind, superior technical specs aren't the whole story - if they were, Betamax would have beaten VHS.

EDIT: Not that I'm saying Nikon or Sony have superior technical specs...   :P
If I am not the shareholder of Canon, why I care much about their sales figure, I don't get a cent from them. So I don't care about who out sell who as long as one of them still produces something to suit my needs.
Canon got a top-ace sales and marketing team, they also have a good reputation from offering excellent things to pros, no one denies this.
Superior sales record aren't the whole story especially we are just consumers. :)

While I'm not in the market for this camera after buying the 5d3, I think you guys are missing the point... everyone griped they wanted an entry level full frame, they got it...  To me, I think this is squarely put right there for those advanced rebel shooters and xxd users who have the option... Do you want to go full frame and get better IQ but NOT want to take out a second mortgage to get the 5d3 or 1dx, OR do you want a 7d (or 7d m2 whenever that comes to fruition).  It's for that person that wants better images without all the fancy bells in whistles... That guy who may want GPS so they can utilize it for social media and the like...  It's no 5d3 but it isn't trying to be either...  While it doesn't get me excited per se, perhaps it would have many moons ago when I was a xxd shooter...  It is what it is, an entry level full frame.  Nothing less, nothing more.

If this was to be an entry level full frame camera 3 or so years ago, it might go down well.

Today it looks like "too little, too late."

Nikon have beaten Canon to market with such a camera.

The combination of the D800/D600 will easily trounce the 5D3/6D combo in every way.

Canon's problem is that when they set out to design these cameras "n" years ago, they designed them for what the market was doing then, not what the market would expect, demand and require now.
Cannot agree more mate.
And I also agree Chuck Alaimo said MP isn't everything, the quality of the sensor is more important. However, I don't think Canon will address all the issues such as banding and low DR in base ISO in this entry level FF sensor. Just like Canon claimed the 5D3 sensor is a brand new one, but the reality shows there's no significant improvement from the one in 5D2. So they were unable to do in a $3500 camera, don't expect much from this one.

someone working in a retail in the uk...

the price point in the UK will be £1799

its a 20mp camera with only 1 card slot SD/SDHC... stock will arrive in December.
The price is including 24-105 or not?? £1799 is close to $3000

Nikon D600 got a very positive preview from Imaging-Resource

"Many of you will doubtless find yourselves equally impressed--not just with the samples, but with what this camera offers in terms of bang for the buck. That's almost certainly going to mean demand outstrips supply for the foreseeable future. Our advice? Get in queue now, before it gets even longer."

These specs look so lame they are actually believable especially for an upcoming Canon camera.  ;D  ;D Canon is just so good in crippling their entry level cameras...

For me, this is CR2.5
If this spec is true, then Canon achieves something extraordinary in crippling, nobody can beat them ;D ;D

  • Why develop a new Sensor when Canon has three different FF-Sensors available?
to add phase detection on the sensor like the 650D and eos-m
  • Why a new 11 Point AF and not the 19 Point AF of the 7D?
maybe canon want to keep this precious 19 point AF to another higher model
  • Why only 1/4000 when even the 60D offers 1/8000?
because Nikon D600 is 1/4000
  • Why only 1/180 when even a 650D offers 1/200 and the 60D offers 1/250?
because 5D3 only has 1/200
  • What is an "EOS" Body? One similar to the body of the EOS 650D or one similar to the EOS 1Dx?
no idea, translation error :)

I guess new sensor basically means the hybrid cmos sensor.
the Digicame-info also mentioned this:
Minimum to Maximum shutter speed: 30-1/4000 sec
flash sync: 1/180
shutter life: 10,0000

AF is not even on par with 7D, Canon really know how to cripple
Build in wifi and GPS is nice :D

I think it is nearly impossible to compare price of 5DIII and d800. beside the cost of producing the camera, there are many othere causes we don't even know about to bring up cost.
Least but not last, d800 has a newly developed sensor, with AF and meccanical part allready used in d3, d700, d3x, d4, . 5DIII is a completly new camera, with a new sensor, new AF, new body. This may be one of the reason of a higher price for the camera.
d800 has a new sensor, new body, updated af and metering used in d4, shutter life @20,0000
5d3 has a new sensor(maybe updated), new body, new af from 1dx, metering from 1100d, shutter life @15,0000

Personally, I'll never buy a camera that lacks AFMA.  Now, I'm not going to buy one, but the D600 does have AFMA.  If Canon omit that from an entry-level FF body (as the omitted it from the 60D, despite having it in the 50D), that will be a serious error, IMO.

I don't think the D600 has AFMA which is what will keep me from buying it. And if Canon does not put that feature in it's rumored 6D, then I won't be buying it either.
It does have AFMF or "Fine tuning" is called by Nikon

"Nikon Multi-CAM 4800 autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, fine-tuning"

can someone please tell me if i am missing my problem.. sony make a full frame small camera great wonderful but they make it a fixed lens whats the point in that?and the price is ridiculous!!! if they made it interchangeable lenses then yeah the price would be justifiable to me this is a big massive FAIL.
The target audience of this camera is quite small according to the specs and price. IMO it's more like a concept than an actual product, it sends a message to Canon&Nikon that you guys are too afraid to try something special but I'm not.
I think the eos-M is an epic fail, it looks like a generation behind others and it's not even on the market yet. It may sell well due to its brand but as a product it's so mediocre to be honest. mentioned a few times that a full frame nex will be announced next year
i agree with the eos -m but this sony rx1 could be amazing if they just made it with interchangeable lenses paying that much and being limited to that focal length is just wrong.I love street photography and it would be good for that but not at that price should be under £1000 uk pounds no more.
Fiji's x100 with its apsc sensor was announced @ 1000 uk pounds, so there's no way a full frame sensor with that zeiss lens should be under 1000 pounds. But I think it should be priced around $2000, $2800 is jut too steep.
