Nikon's D600 as currently rumored over on NR will quite likely be the next tough test of the Canon-devotees unwavering faith. It may well deliver as much or more than the Canon 5D 3 at less than half of the cost. Slightly more resolution, almost for sure more DR, quite likely also same speed 6 fps, heck, maybe even 7? plus a very capable AF-system (probably even working at f/8).

if it's going to cost just $1500 is gonna destroy sales of d800 too  :'( … except nikon hasnt a very capable AF system on d800 so i doubt it would be implemented on D600

best web prices here in italy are

3060 Euros for the body and 3700 for the kit (3700$/4600$ at current Exchange rates)

the canon 60d price was (correct me if i wrong) 1099$..we are talking about a rumored camera at 1500$ (optimistic price that would kill d700 instantly)

i want this .. i want such a canon camera!!

The Goods:

 – 24.7MP Full-Frame Sensor — Could it be more perfect?
 – 5fps, 2 SD card slots
 – ISO 100-6400 (Lo 50 – Hi 25,600)
 – Built-in AF motor (so AF-S lenses won’t be mandatory)
 – 1080p at 30, 35, 24 — 720p at 60, 50, 30, 25
 – HDMI output
 – 100% viewfinder coverage for FX, 97% DX
 – Just slightly lighter than the D800 (about 800g v. 900g)
 – Will likely be weather sealed
 – 39 AF Points
 – Could be as cheap as $1500! — D3x was already killed by the D800…but Nikon obviously doesn’t mind beating it down further…

The “Bad”:

 – No built-in GPS — This goes against what we thought earlier, but honestly, we’d all much rather have an AF motor and a weather-sealed body than a silly GPS chip that few will actually need. That saves most of us a little change, too, since we won’t ‘have’ to buy an external GPS attachment if we don’t want to.

is it an sony Alpha 900 on budget?...maybe they are repackaging the unsold a900as nikon d600

cant canon do a 1.3x n 1.6x crop
or 3x 5x n 10x crop features in stills (like it is there on 600D) for a FF body???
wont it make a cheap F body a better n attractive option???
i mean if a cheap rebel can do it on 1.6x sensor cant it be done on a 18/22 FF sensor ???
making it both a FF, an APSH n an APSC owner's "HONEY"

like nikon? from FX to DX the resolution is greatly reduced ....from 36 to 16 in d800, from 12 to 5 in d700


The 70-200 2.8L IS II is arguably the sharpest and maybe the best zoom Canon has made so far.

also he sigma 70-200 beats the 70-200 f/4 is canon optically and it costs the same....maybe he just doesnt need an f/2.8 lens

So 70D would be just sensor and image processor upgrade?

upgrade from what? with digic V i would expect a bump on real fps, putting it at the same level of 50D; big upgrade for autofocus too if those rumors are true

Refurbished, the 70-200 2.8L costs almost exactly the same as the 70-200 4L IS.  I currently have the 70-200 on a 550D body, and am expecting to go FF and am interested in upgrading this lens to improve IQ.  Don't have the extra grand to get the 2.8L IS.  Any opinions on IQ, build quality, handling, etc.?

the F4 IS is a bit sharper , has stabilization, is better sealed than the 2.8 and it weight the half;

do you need 2.8? that's the question

I'm sorry but I've never seen an explanation of the benefit of Cross Type AF points could someone quickly explain?

A cross-type sensor is a horizontal line sensor and a vertical line sensor at the same AF point, meaning that point is able to detect lines in both orientations - that makes it more likely that the AF point will be sampling a feature that has the correct orientation to activate the sensor.

if you need just video functionality and better iso you can consider the 600d; if you need more, better to go with 7d

are we talking abot 50mm?

sigma 50mm 1.4 for the sharpness, canon 50 1.4 is you want a lightweight lens

a touch screen addition, same autofocus and plastic body of 60d... actual price of 7d with a nice 20% for the marketing research of the new name...subpar sensor but hdr in camera just like a compact camera from casio (respect to casio)

sigma 70-200 OS 200mm@f/4

Of course, I don't say that a 24-70 f/2.8 without IS is garbage (as we all know, the version I sells/sold pretty well) but I simply cannot image how Canon will justify the almost $1000 difference when they will not provide IS while Tammy has one along with a quite decent optics. Perhaps someone can enlighten me?
Just my2c

the IS is a useful feature...better to have that dont for sure

well from the first test the tamron optically is in the same leaugue of old canon 24-70 that's wasnt anything special, so i guess the new 24-70 II will be really better that tamron and will be better built, with a better and faster autofocus, and of course it will feature a red ring.

in my opinion the brand is important, so Canon e Nikon are able to sell their stuff to a price considerably higher than 3rd parties, so they have the margin to give you an all around better product

the sigma 50mm 1.4 it's better than both...if the weight it's no a problem for you...the price it's something more than canon 1.4
