This is absurd.

Also why is the D600 "better"? Neither camera is even out yet! I'm sure they are both fantastic cameras capable of capturing light on a little digital sensor. People need to find a better hobby besides comparing spec sheets.

Cameras come and go.

My 24mm f/1.4II, 135mm f/2, 70-200.... now those are some sexy things.

I'll run my bodies into the ground while I spend my loot on glass.

EOS Bodies / Re: Who really is the target demographic for the 6D?

It's just another price point being offered by Canon. The 5DII will be soon discontinued leaving this as their 2k model.

I seriously dont understand all the angry/ complaining posts- every camera model that is released isn't intended to be sold to every Canon user. If it is not for you, move on.

I like the new design of the lenses too. Very clean and simple looking.

I know "pro" photographers that use Rebels. The photographer is the "Pro" not the camera.

With "Pro/Semi Pro" I ment camera body style. I know that a Pro photographer can take pictures with any camera. ;)

I know, I was just busting balls.

One word? "Camera".

 Y'all are crazy. I'm excited there is nothing new tempting me to waste my money on another camera body with minor changes. Technology is pretty good people. Enjoy shooting with what you have!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon Announces the Canon EOS 6D DSLR
« on: September 17, 2012, 08:15:09 AM »
A deal breaker for me is the lack of a proper thumb joystick in the upper back area- I like to change the focus point directly without taking my eye away from the viewfinder. The back looks like a 60D without the flippy screen!

Lenses / Re: Manual focus lens on the 5D Mark III, What do I need to know?

Live View with a LCDVF or Z-Finder. This allows you to still have that 3rd point of contact (for handheld shooting) you normally lose with live view. It also allows you to see the screen outdoors while magnifying the screen significantly.

EOS Bodies / Re: Adorama is selling 5d3 for $2745 on eBay now
« on: September 15, 2012, 09:57:32 PM »
Looks like Adorama is clearing warehouse space for incoming stock of newer equipment.

I think it is also fair to say that the 5D3 is selling A LOT SLOWER than Adorama predicted.

I suppose the only remaining question is if Adorama is making a profit on $2745 or not.

But even if they aren't, this deal will really put the brakes on further 5D3 sales because everyone else that doesn't need a 5D3 will simply wait for other stores to have a sale like this.

Clearing stock for new cameras?! So now a camera's life cycle is a few months?!
That's absurd. Canon kept the price "high" on purpose. Early adopters, to create a demand, to sell more 5D2's, the price of the Yen, the price of rice , because they can, whatever the reason.... It's marketing. I'm sure Adorama is still making money, Canon is making money, whatever.

I have a hunch they kept the 5D3 price so high initially because they wanted to keep selling the 5D2. Remember the D700 was discontinued upon D800 arrival. This kept the 5D2 selling well due to the huge price gap.

So I'm going to assume the 5D2 will be discontinued very shortly and a new lower price model will be introduced. Canon was the first to sell a digital DSLR below 1k, now the can have the first FF below 2k!

Note: None of these statements have been researched or fact checked, so I reserve the right to be wildly off base on all claims.

I got my 5D2 for less than 1500- good prices come to those who don't pre-order! Stay a generation behind and you'll never have buyer's remorse :)

I'm not a "fanboy", I just like the ergonomics and overall controls on my Canon cameras. Never liked the "feel" of Nikon (besides my F3). I also like my Canon glass.

People need to chill on the spec sheets, test charts and a few dollar price difference here and there.
