Older model ≠ outdated and useless. I would have no problem buying a 5DmkII right now (I just did, in fact, 10 months ago). Looking strictly at the specs, the 6D is not nearly the same quality as the 5DmkII. Canon is replacing the 5DmkII with something less, and charging the customers accordingly. Sensor aside, everything else about this camera just smacks of consumer level qualities. I wish Canon would have just kept the 5DmkII line, charged $2099 for it, and given it a 'classic' moniker. There's a market for that.
I'm counting on it
hopefully I can sell my PoS 5D2 for more than it's worth now when the new ones dry up and the 6D starts to disappoint for whatever reason.
Also allows me to bide my time in case the 6D is also a turkey for IQ.
