Your argument is unique to your market; the D600 is $100+ more than the 6D in the North American market. He wasn't wrong by the market standard that he lives in, your market is obviously different.
I know :-> - but I couldn't help but to make the point that Canon's strategy, i.e. a Japanese company selling in *all* countries, cannot be judged by looking at US-$ prices alone. If someone says the d6 will *always* be less expensive than d600 which is an absolute theory it can be contradicted by one different example from another large market, even if the US might be the biggest (as things should be :-)).
well i believe that you are never check on real life and only read on website. even you check on bnh store: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/Digital-Cameras/ci/9811/N/4288586282 u can see that nikon D600 is 100usd more expensive that canon 6D. so do your homework or reality check
Well, your homework consists of finding a globe and trying to find the US. Got it (it might say "Center of the world" on your version)? Good. Then look at all the other countries, amazing, isn't it? Well, and Canon sells dlsr everywhere, that's why I quoted the € (that's "Euro") prices, and even if you don't care about that in an English-written forum there are always the Brits and the Ozzies who don't pay in US-$.
The USA is the largest DSLR camera market in the world, period. Europe is not 1 country, and thus their prices vary. You're welcome to attempt to poke holes in my little theory, but I still stand by it. How many Canon DSLR's are sold in both UK and Australia? Not as many as in the USA, by a mile. Enough said.
You can come up with whatever theory you can make up with your myopic view of the world. The demographics of Canon's sales is such that only 27 per cent of its global sales come from the
US. Americas ... North as well as South America.
"The Americas" would also include Central America and Mexico, if you want to get technical. Obviously you do.
Oceana, Europe...those aren't countries with a single currency. But then neither are the Americas. Japan is the only "area" on the chart with a single currency...so their market share is huge in comparison to all other countries. What is the current price in yen of a D600 vs. a 6D?
I was also speaking of DSLR sales, because we are talking about a price comparison between two DSLR's, a Nikon and a Canon...and not overall sales.
You really have no point to make here, do you? Other than you dislike the USA, or you think we don't realize there are other people in the world? Sorry to disappoint you, but I do very much realize it.
In any case, if you like the Nikon D600, or otherwise think it's a better value than the 6D, you should buy that as your backup camera, and some Nikon glass. That would be a lot less costly than buying a 1DX as your backup camera, as you seem to imply in a previous post.
