EOS Bodies / Re: 450D to 6D
« on: September 23, 2012, 04:45:41 PM »
However, the 6D will be offered from DigitalRev at a similar discount ?

Speaking of which, where's the catch with buying from DigitalRev other than hassle sending stuff back if it is broken ?

No catch. For me they have good customer service. No tax (they pay it) and free delivery. Yes if something goes wrong it's a pain, but touch wood, that has never happened yet. They have been around long enough that need to keep their name, International sales is there business (mostly)

£2039 was a bargain, but you are right the 6d, will be cheaper there too.

Enjoyed your pics on flickr!

Given the recent announcement and the affordable price of a 6D with a 24-105mm kit, I'm starting to seriously consider the full benefits of a move from using a 450D with a 15-85mm to a 6D with the 24-105, specifically in terms of shooting in low light, depth of field and so on...    Whilst I'm sure some will shout, buy a 5D III, but seriously folks, I'm not happy to invest that level of my cash into a camera, so...  Please, given my current lens line up, consideration of keeping the 450D with the 10-22, perhaps trading my 15-85 & 18-55, what can I expect and are there any pitfalls I need to think about ?

I was looking at both the 6D and the 5d mk3. I ordered from Digital Rev and the 5d was only £2039 (£200 more then the WEX price of a 6D) that is a lot more camera for not much more. Not sure of it helps but it worked for me.

I think this thread is pure comedy gold.

Asking if it's time for the CEO to go, come on really??? So, you have not used the camera, you don't know how it will sell and no one has done a review on it yet.

The specifications might not read as well as they could but it might perform well for the price to it's targeted users. The photo's and video's available to view look very good.

To most this is the first step to full frame, although not to my tastes I think it will be flying off the shelf's. More choice of camera's means a camera for every budget, in turn more lenses sold, more accessories sold, more people buying into the system.

And, should this not be for some, then it might force them to spend a little more then they hoped to get the 5d MK3. I doubt this will be any thing but positive for Canon no mater how you view the 6D.

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D or 5D Mk II
« on: September 17, 2012, 03:52:34 PM »
I'm considering picking up either the 6D or 5D Mk II, which camera would you expect to be better? How many 5D Mk II owners would swap their camera for the 6D? Are there any advantages the 5D Mk II holds over the 6D?

If you are in the UK, I was looking at the 5D Mk iii or the 6D. The UK price of the 6D is £1800 (delivery before xmas) and then saw Digital Rev (Hong Kong) have them for £2080, free delivery and they pay the TAX. £280 of my maths seemed like a lot more camera for the money.

5D Mkiii ordered, awaiting delivery!!

Hi,

I'm not a Pro and after reading about the new 6D I'm left wondering if anyone uses GPS on their camera. What are the advantages what do you gain from it? I understand that it pin points a place you took a photo, but I can remember where I took my pics. Is there a commercial advantage to it?

Just trying to understand this a little more,

Thanks

I waited a few days on ordering a 5d mkiii, I was hoping the new FF might be something great (it's not)..

Time to order that 5d mkiii
