So, is the image quality better than the 5D II?

Lensrental did quick AF test:
http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/11/a-quick-6d-af-test

Thanks for the link - and it's a letdown, but not unexpected :-(

It's a little bit better than 5D2 comparing both cameras but 5D3 and 1DX are miles above it as expected.  Low-light focusing however is very good.  It is enough for landscape and studio photographers.  For sports, it will be on a rebel level.

I received a e-mail today, our local small camera shop has them in stock.  He has not stocked FF bodies before, so this is a first.
If I had not jumped on the Adorama $2750 deal for my 5D MK III, I'd be very interested.  I sold my 7D, and have a old 10D laying around as well as a 1G x and a G11, so I'm going to hold off and see what the new year brings before buying another new body.

Yes just you, I ordered mine around the same time and it's already turned up in Australia and I've been taking some fantastic shots all weekend, so awesome I won't post because it will make 1DX owners want to jump off a bridge :P.

But seriously unless I'm missing something with the timezones wouldn't you have ordered it something like 6:00PM Friday New York time? Assuming you meant 'just ordered' as in the past hour or two since your original post.

Yes, I ordered it around that time. I'm worried.

When I check my order on their website, the image of the product says "no available" instead of showing a picture of the camera, and when I click the product it takes me to an error page saying that the product does not exist anymore.

What the hell happened? How do I cancel it?

How is the body? Does it feel similar to the 60D? Also, how's the AF system. While it may not be like 5D3s but in it's own right is it snappy and quick? Cannot wait to see some IQ and ISO comparison between 6d, 5d2 and 5d3.

I guess testing it out in store is the way to go. However, that won't be possible till Canon floods the makret enough to allow the camera stores to have sample bodies for customers to get hands on with the 6D.

Ditto....from other posts it sounds like the high ISO sensor performance is on par with the mk3 (many are saying it's actually a touch better, not enough to be WOW, but still that's awesome!!).  What I haven not heard about is the AF.  How not good is it?  LOL.  Is it like the mk2, center point spot on but anything else forget about it?  I shoot weddings and am considering what my secondary body will be (a second mk3 or possibly the 6d).   I like many of the things I am hearing about the sensor, basically what I want is images that don't look out of place next to mk3 images.  So, if the AF is decent, this may very well be my answer.  Use the 6d with a 16-35 (or maybe my 24-70), then run with the 70-200 (or primes) on the mk3.  If I am shooting mostly wide angle with it, as long as the AF is halfway decent I should be OK.  I rather like the idea of the weight - usually I prefer something with some weight to it (it's one of the reasons I go with a grip!), but I rather like the idea of have as lighter weight ungripped body for the last 2 hours of a reception, where your more than likely holding the camera up over peoples heads.  By that point your arms are tired, so hefting a mk3 with grip after shooting most of the day with a 70-200, it hurts!!!!!  (and for that kind of stuff, center point only would be fine.  I also do dig doing night time long exposure stuff - at first i didn't like the whole wifi idea - but the idea of being able to control the camera via my phone, that kind of rocks!   

Long story short, how is the AF????  LOL

At this point getting a 5DM3 makes more sense being that its only $800 or so more unless the little wifi and gps thing floats your boat.
