I don't dislike the US but I do dislike the people who don't seem to realise that there is a world outside of the US. I think its too presumptuous to say that Canon prices its products taking only the US market into consideration.
BTW, did I say that I "liked" the Nikon D600? We were only referring to the price here and all you can deduce from the information that has been provided by myself and another poster here is to arrive at the conclusion that I like the Nikon D600 and should buy it instead of the 1DX! That said, if Nikon suited my shooting requirements, I would have shifted already.
Did I say that the 6D is a bad camera? I have a few gripes with the autofocus that Canon has put out on it. My points are relevant to "this" thread that is the only reason I have posted here. The thread refers to "6D Autofocus not impressive" - well it's not impressive IMHO and if one would consider the AF systems in Canon's other models (even crop cameras), I would say that the AF system on the 6D is not impressive at all. Simply because I don't agree with you doesn't mean I'm wrong - you are satisfied with the 6D's AF and I am not. Is it so difficult to understand?
If the best you can do is come up with irrational conclusions then I rest my case. There is no point in trying to get into a reasoned debate and end up getting rude and nasty replies. I hope you are not this obtuse in real life.

Huh? I'm not being any more rude than you are here. You're the one implying I think the USA is the only market. I don't, and never said it was. However, you seem to be implying the UK's market is what counts, since somehow the price is less there for the D600 than the 6D...and that because of this, I was wrong in my assertion that Canon wanted to keep the price of the 6D lower than that of the D600. Well, I still feel that was their strategy, and you can't disprove it. Your market is not representative of the world market, despite your implication that it is...and somehow the US market is the outlier that is not representative of the price.
I don't care if you think the 6D's autofocus is impressive or not. My point still is, that it need not be "impressive", it simply needs to function well, which it does.
You are finding fault with it unfairly, and if you spent a bit more time with it, you might change your mind.
Really, you should chill out a little bit. You are taking this way too personally, for no reason.
