I am having trouble posting images and hope this works.  I previously resized to 4096 kb but that didn't upload. Oh, I see, maximum total 4096. Anyway, here is another from my latest trip taken at Crator Lake, Oregon.

Being from Canada, Canon has now blocked my ability to purchase in the USA.  Stores in the USA are not free to sell to purchasers with Canadian credit cards. I really resent this attack on my freedom. So I may switch to Sigma for some purchases.   I may pick up the new 35 mm and keep my eye on their new Art line offerings.

There is an Equinox housing for the 5d mark iii.   It is $1600 though.

EOS Bodies / Re: More 6D sample images - with RAW files.

When I look at the samples, what strikes me is that the 6D colours are cooler.  That is to say they are shifted slightly towards blue.  Also I think the images look flatter somehow as the shadow areas are lighter.  Perhaps the contrast is lower than the 5d III samples?

The 24-70 f4 lens is being offered as the kit lens with a 6D at Camera Canada for $3299.00.  $400 more than the kit with the 24-105 f4.  I think the 24-70 will make a pretty good match for an advanced amateur camera.  By adding a fast fixed lens for night shooting and perhaps the 70-200 f2.8 II as a future prize it could be a relative cheap way for amateurs to enter the FF market and have a system with fairly high IQ, admittedly with limitations.

Canon General / Re: Does Minimum Advertised Price apply to auctions?

Today, I put in a formal complaint to the Canadian Federal government agains't Canon for breaching the Free Trade Agreement.  They can not block the sale of goods to Canadians in the United States just as we can not block the sale of goods and services to US citizens or companies in Canada.  I believe the intent of the free trade agreement is that they have to treat us the same.

This is my first post here at Canon Rumours.  Don't laugh... yesterday I ordered a 6D with the 24-105L lens.  I am promised delivery in December.  I currently have a T1i and four canon lens (two L's and soon three).  Over the past three years I have taken quite a few photos and gradually become more interested in and able to produce better photographs.  I have read quite extensively which has helped my photos quality progress and I have been looking at getting a better camera for months.  I like the Canon system and would rather not have to learn a second one.  Not being a pro, and not wanting to be, I am looking for a camera that will allow me to be more creative and get the shots I envision.  I want to explore nature videos and night and landscape photography, although most of my current photos are of people.  I decided on the 6D since I expect it will be at least as good as the 5d mark ii and since it is new it should serve me well for a number of years.  Some of the features that convinced me to go for this camera were the built in lens correction using downloadable lens profiles (I have a 24mm 1.4II that really needs a better camera), the focal adjustment, the wifi, the full frame sensor (I like that it has a bigger pixel than the 5d mark iii even if fewer).  None of the lack of features that people have been complaining about on the site seemed like deal-breakers to me.  Since I am still collecting lens and trying many different types of photography I am not set on buying the "ultimate" camera at this time.  By not buying the 5D mark iii I am able to buy a camera and another lens.  For me, the 6D suits me more than the other offerings out there at this time and I am so excited.  I can't wait for December.
