I hope they'll sell 5D2 @ around $1K or $1.3K. I'll take it without thinking.

Does anyone know who made the sensor for this camera? I hope it's Sony.
Hi,I think it's not only the price. Upgraders from APS-C will find Nikon offering much easier to take. Imagine if you're invested in DX (AF-S) glasses. You can still take D600 and little by little upgrade your lenses. It's besides the fact that it's offering it at almost the same price of 5D2. Wow!I just wonder how many people will actually use the crop mode over a long period of time? For example, a user who own a D3200 with quite a number of DX lens decided to upgrade to D600 while he'll slowly upgrade to FX lens... then suddenly realized in DX mode, he only had 10MP on D600 while his old D3200 had 24MP... hmm... I'm not sure about others, but for me, I'll not be very happy during the transition time. If I'm a Nikon user ready to upgrade to a FF DSLR, I'll first upgrade all my len to FX lens before getting a FF DSLR.
So, for me, a FF DSLR offering a crop mode is not attractive at all, unless when using crop mode, the FF DSLR can achieve a much higher frame rate then that's another story.
Have a nice day.
I have a Sony Nex 5N, the APS-C image quality is as good as my loved 5D MarkII, from all the review I've read, Sony sensor is better than Canon. Canon should lower their price, they thought they were still in 5D and 5D Mark II time that dominating the market.
Canon doesn't just set their prices based on the (supposed) superiority of a competitor's product. They set prices based on their own production costs.
2700? What's the joke. Nikon users should just get D800.
(( ... that mean a expensive (around $2500 or more) Canon 6D
I would be shocked if a 6D was less expensive than the current MSRP for the 5D mark II, unless Canon lowered the mark II's price. Frankly, I expect a 6D to be right around $2,500 and Canon to discontinue the 5D mark II to make room in the lineup. Otherwise, the two would cannibalize each others' sales.
Just my $0.02.
A99 bulky?? It's the lightest FF DSLR available....
its still a bulky DSLR.
Rather than clunky SLT A99 and a small but one-focal-length-only RX-1 Sony should have announced the APS-C NEX-6 and a very slightly larger NEX-9 with the 24 MP FF-sensor.
You make me wonder whether I need to change my G11 at all. Especially after Canon serviced it and checked focussing and replaced the faulty back. Maybe I just need to be more careful how I use scenes ie not at night and with macros to remember that autofocus seems to refuse to work on telefoto only on wide angle.
They would need to seriously catch up with the glass!
