True, but a used 5D2 is not much cheaper and it has worse high iso performance. But although I would like a stripped 6D I agree with you that it will not be in the interest of Canon to do so. With this reasoning someone would like to ask for an even more stripped 6D -one for stills only - which would be fine by me too. But this is simply NOT going to happen either.
I wish the 6D were available for $ 1,100 WITHOUT the GPS and the WiFi. Not everyone wants these features built into the camera.
Me too. I wonder if it would ever be economically viable for Canon to turn out a model like this?
It's called a used 5d2.
Canon isn’t going to strip things off and offer a budget version unless their market tells them they are losing shares on a market. They did just that on the 6D to keep the same price point held by the 5d2 when they launched the 5d3 on a higher tier. Judging by the amount of people shooting 5d3s, I’d say they’re not worried about having their price points set too high on the 6D.
Up to now I am used to the fact that there is no absolute superset in cameras. May be a camera is better that other in 90% or even 99% but it is never 100%. There is always something. We just choose the best we need and can afford.
