Canon General / Re: Canon Suspends Operations at 3 Plants in China

History says otherwise, and is one of the main reasons for what is happening in China now.
That is ****ing stupid.

So should we europeans still be furious at Germany for all the crimes their nazi regime did against us during WW2? Should we take to the streets and smash Mercedes and BMWs?

I hope Japan pulls out all their companies from China and relocate them to friendlier countries. Japan don't need China, but China needs and wants japanese factories and products.

Worst part is that these demonstrations and riots are silently supported by the chinese government.

zheesh and only a 3.0 inch LCD...   and no headphone jack...

I was thinking that the scenario that would drive me to Nikon as I transition to FF would be Nikon producing a great intro FF camera, and Canon producing a dumbed down overpriced FF competitor.   Well, that scenario has happened.

I haven't made a final decision, but now I'm definitely leaning to switching over.   This from a Canonite since the Elan 7E!   Oh well... time marches on...
You go right ahead and switch.
+1

Everyone who can should make the switch.

It is a bit harder for the ones of us who owns a large collection of Canon-glass + accessories.

DP-Review are not happy about it.  :(

Quote: "Overall, though, it's difficult to shake the feeling that the EOS 6D simply lacks the 'wow' factor of its main rival. Whereas Nikon seems to have taken the approach of taking away as little as possible from D800 when creating the D600, Canon appears almost to have gone the other way, removing as much as it thinks it can get away with at the price. The result is the kind of conservative, slightly unimaginative design that's become the company's hallmark."

The wording might be an unlucky one. It might as well mean that the center point is a higher precision cross-type, and that there are more cross-types among the other 10 points.
I really don't think it is just unlucky wording. Several sources have already confirmed that it has only 1 cross type point, and many Canon related web forums are in flames a.t.m.

Regarding 6D vs D600:

It looks like Nikon has put things where they count - AF, sensor, etc. - while Canon has none of that, but went for the 'ooh, shiny!' factor with WiFi, GPS and (?) touchscreen - advertising points that shop assistants can use to attract those who know little about cameras.

The D600 looks like a camera One could consider if they really didn't need need the 36MP or fully-fledged AF of the D800. The 6D looks like something almost designed to disappoint the buyer into splashing out for a 5D3 six months later...

11 AF points and only ONE of them is cross-type??

Meanwhile the D600 gets 39 points and 9 cross-types!

Even the "lowly" rebel T3i / 650D has 9 cross types!

What are you doing Canon?? Trying to breathe new life into the old focus & recompose technique?

For those that may label me a Nikon fanboy..
Ignore them. It is they who are the true fanboys.

Well it is now confirmed that the 6D has 11 point AF with only one cross type point.

So you'll be using the old focus and recompose technique, no matter which camera you pick.

If I were you, I'd abandon ship and go for the D600. Looks like a much much better camera.

The replacement for the 5D 2 is the 5D 3. I can't understand most of the complains here.
The replacement for the 5D2 is unfortunately the D800.

The 5D3 is just.. Well, let's call it "5D2.5."
They fixed the horrible AF, added 1 MP, and a few gimmicks like in camera HDR. That is hardly what I call a replacement..

And suddenly, once again people have to dish out 3459 bucks for the camera!  ::) Am I the only one seeing the bizarre humor in this?

Come on and do a permanent price drop already..

Canon bores us again.

No word on a high MP / high DR body?  :-\

Oh well. The wait continues..

Another question is why the deal is only available through their Ebay store?

Their Ebay store doesn't ship outside the US, which kinda sucks for me and many others..

However, you will see many people against the price and the store.  I still remember there is a big argue for the 2800 deal from Beach Camera.
And who on earth are these people?

The early desperate adopters who thinks that everyone should have to pay the same price they paid.?  ;D

Screw them. If they hadn't been so quick on bending over for the obvious overprice during spring + summer, the price drop would have come even sooner.

Why are so many doubting the built in wifi?

Heck even cheapo P&S-cameras has build in wifi. It is about time Canon puts it into their DSLRs.

This will be very handy when working in a studio, or for photo journalists who needs to transfer files on the go.
