If this entry-level FF camera has the same noise sensitivity as the 5D3, a "silent" shooting mode, and options for setting minimum ISO/shutter speed, I'll surely be getting one.

If what you hope for turns out to be true, I might sell my 5D Mark 3 and buy one of these entry level FF just out of spite.

Giving Canon $5500 is spiteful? :p

For amateurs, dual card slots/full weather sealing is not really a must
they mostly concerns IQ

an entry level FF called 6D,5D lite would be awesome;
single SD slot, built-in flash,lighter plastic body, 19 AF points, slower 4 fps is really excellent

but there is no point to trust a CR2 rumor from canonrumors......it is not much different from CR0
you can check the track records

This is good news...  I have been saving up to replace my body in the next 6-9 months...  I was waiting to see what APS-C offerings would surface. However, a smaller, more compact FF would certainly be of interest! :) However, weather sealing on body and lenses is becomeing more important for me.

*19 AF points is more than enough for me
*AFMA would also be great
*Weather sealing

If it has those, i am very interested indeed! :)

Wouldn't a metal body tend to expand and contract more than a plastic one?


I dont think normal operating temperatures cause any significant expansion and/or contraction. Not many people out there who use their camera in the antarctic or near volcanos etc. i think. And then probably the material doesnt matter anyway cuz its just so extreme.

Im quite happy about having a "cheap" entry FF dslr coming out. 5D Mark 3 is really expensive.

Hopefully it also got better control than the rebels but im sure about that. I just got a rebel and its such a pain in the ass to switch ISO/WB/Exposure Mode cuz u gotta frickle through menus and got no direct access buttons. Custom Functions doesnt help me fully too.

Yaaawn!

Still waiting for a FF camera from Canon, that offers a real IQ upgrade over the 5D2.

You know.. Like Nikon's D800 does.


Shot with the D800 last weekend. Overall not super impressed. Had my 5D Mark III handy for comparison shots. The images coming out of my Canon were good enough with excellent IQ and the color fidelity straight out of camera was simply gorgeous compared to the Nikon's natural green cast! Yes 36MP look good on a spec sheet, but in the studio my 22MP Canon was able to hold it's own and in some ways was even better. Another thing to point out is that the D800 is approaching Medium Format resolution and thus not as forgiving to focus.



Canon 1DX, Canon 5D Mark III, EF 85mm F1.2L II USM, EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM Macro, EF 16-35mm F2.8L II USM, EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM, EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM, 600EX-RT Speedlites, Profoto Studio Strobes, and a whole lot of boat load of light modifiers.

Has anyone seen the specs on the upcoming (claimed August) Sony a99 ??  http://www.++++++++rumors.com/the-a99-specs-do-you-like-the-camera/

10-12 Fps
1080p @ 60 Fps (first dslr to do so)

Wonder if this will put pressure on Canon, and with the lower price FF coming, get them to add something via Firmware to the 5D3.

5D3 | 600D | EOSm | Samyang 8mm 3.8T | Samyang 14 2.8 | 17-40 | 28 1.8 | Sig 35 1.4 | 40 | 50 1.4 | 100 2.0 | 135 L | 70-200 4L IS + x1.4mk2 | Nippon Kogaku 50 1.4 (1965) | Nikkor 43-86 (mid 1970s) | M: 22

Sony doesnt put pressure on anybody. Not such a great company anymore since Playstation 2.

its a handy tool for low angle shots.

After 5D3 was released at $3500 MSRP, this lower class FF body is starting to make sense to me :). I just hope it will have CF slot in it, not SDHC :D. Vari-angle LCD would be great too.
FF + primes !

Agree!! A lot of people want a swivel screen!!! It is very useful for anyone who love take videos (and also photos obviously)!!

My hope:
19 af point
swivel screen
CF card!!!
built in flash
viewfinder 100%

2000 euro

I think its far to early to compare any kind of rumoured specs between a D600 or a 6D or whatever.
So no reason to be excited or moan or bash anything.
