Isn't DXO the company that tests DSLR sensors without lenses?

Wow, that is not my experience at ALL...
I have not done side-by-side comparisons between the M and the 6D, but I did compare the M (22 @ 22mm) with the 5D3 (24-105 @ 24mm) indoors in my place and while the M wasn't shabby by any means, there was no question that the 5D3 was far superior.
I find the 6D IQ amazing as well...used it this past weekend at a book signing and it is FAR better than the 60D I used to use at those types of events, even using the same 70-200mm 2.8 lens (!)...
The M has great IQ for its size. But my no means do I find it better than FF 6D or 5D3. At best there is little or no difference (outdoors, sunny day, landscape shots). For everything else FF pulls ahead, sometimes way ahead...
I'd check the focus on your 6D to see if something's up.
Anyone think we should all continue to contact Canon about this? Or are we wasting our time?
I got almost the same response.
Any chance this could be a sign that they plan to transform the M-line into a full-frame system for the US market (with a new name) while maintaining APS-C sized mirrorless compacts for the Eastern markets (where they are better received)? I would hope that they are holding back on releasing crop-sensor lenses in the US because they intend to deliver full-frame equivalents instead.
As has been said before, the introduction of the 70D is very exciting, particularly the clues it offers to the upcoming 7D2. Remember, canon said the 7D2 will be "ground breaking", not the 70D.... So whatever happens with the 70D is not " groundbreaking".
If new standard of iso performance and 5Xfaster live view focus in crop cameras is not "groundbreaking", then the 7D2 must be something to behold!
If you're cash strapped, it's fairly easy to find 35 /2.8 FD mount TS lenses and Mika offers a conversion kit. Going this route will usually cost less than $1k.
If it's as sharp as the 70-300L, awesome.
I hope they don't downgrade the performance that much - it would be a deal-breaker for me.
I hope that comment was facetious. The 70-300L is optically superior to the current 100-400L in every way
