If you cross your eye on the two images, focus on the one 'created' in the middle you get a 3D HDR image!

So their goal is not just designing and building the camera but also including parts and materials that allow it to meet a specific price point. Would, for example, you trade the GPS+WiFi for a body that was half magnesium alloy and half polycarbonate instead of no GPS/Wifi and full magnesium alloy body?
Well, I certainly would (60d user :-)) - actually I really don't think it matters much of the top of a camera body is not metal, if it takes a hit on the lcd it's time a for a trip to the service anyway.
However integrating wifi/gps certainly doesn't drive costs up significantly, these are cent-circuits built into billions of mobile phones. It's much more about marketing (a "pro" camera doesn't have gps) and not putting all eggs into one basket, or there wouldn't be any features left for the 6d and the 5d4.
It's a different sort of mentality though.
Canon gives certain features to lower models and higher-end users say: WTF?
Canon cuts certain features from lower-end models and their users say: WTF?
I prefer the Nikon way of differentiating D600 and D800. There are reasons to buy a D800, but at the same time the D600 has no serious flaw or deal-breaker. And no one with a D800 will say WTF? when seeing the D600.
Like before the 5d3 was announced, I asked why doesn't Canon make SDK's for integration with smart phone and Tablets... now they have with the 6D, I like that feature, but it is not in the almost 2x priced 5D3 released just months before.... WTF !
IF this -3 EV AF thing actually works well....
IF I were a 5D3/1Dx user....
I would surely say WTF.
I didn't recommend it, but what would be wrong with it? It's a nicely priced camera with a lot of cool features. At this stage it would be futile to say anything about IQ etc, wait until reviews come out before ruling it out.Get a 6D?Love to know why you recommend a 6D?
please what is nicely priced?
it´s a AF crippled 60D with a FF sensor for twice as much money.
Really? And in what way is the AF crippled? I try to see it for what it is as I explained above. I think this camera will sell really well, especially with wifi adding extra functionality. I am certain it will provide great IQ, AF in line with its price range and adding to that Canon's fine lens line up. Neither of us have seen the camera yet so it's quite childish to bash it for qualities or lack of qualities that you don't have any idea of.
DxOmark just posted D600 test results. They're about the same as the D800's.
What will the 6D rate whenever it get's there?... (good luck, Canon)
I guess, all I have to complain about is that I live in Europe .
$2750 for 5D3 is nice, but $1750 for 6D would be nicer . I'm not a professional, but I'm more into photography than talking about expensive features I don't need. I think that 5D3 may be an overkill for me and I can't afford it atm. I hate to say this, but D600 is very tempting. I may just sell all may Canon toys, get the D600 with a nice 50/1.4 and wait till 5D3 price comes down (2015?). First I want to see some reviews...
Just wait, Canon is going to shock all of us and give us a sensor with ZERO banding in this 6d. That can be its big selling point. I think that is the SINGLE biggest thing canon can do to improve their sensors.
Nices shots everyone... and you Octavian! What settings/ ND did you use?
