Canon EOS 6D in October? [CR1]
« on: August 09, 2012, 07:37:55 AM »
Not for Photokina?
Over at [NL], they mention that the next full frame DSLR from Canon won’t come until October. That camera will be the EOS 6D, a smaller full frame camera that looks like the 7D at first glance. The camera is reported to come in at 22mp, the same as the current 5D Mark III.

As we’ve mentioned before, with the brisk sales of the 5D Mark II, Canon is already the number 1 seller in the $2000 full frame camera market.

No DSLR for Photokina? It’s possible. The last time I was there, Canon was only showing off the 60D. A solid camera, but hardly a show stopper.

Canon has five cameras for Photokina: 1D X, 1D C, 5D III, 650D and the EOS M. Should be enough as show stopper.

I agree; there's so many GOOD cameras out there that, as long as you're trying, you can take great pictures.

My only personal complaint is that all of their "current" DSLRs should have been 'refreshed' with minor software tweaks and newer DigicV processors.

Look at apple: they replaced the iPhone4 with the 4s in about 15 months, addressing almost every complaint (that they intended to) and people were freaking out that it wasn't a totally new device.  People are expecting way too much of companies that are really delivering in a meaningful way.

 ;D  If this thing has the specs I want (which I have already posted on CR), I will preorder.  Smaller body?  Don't go smaller than the 7D, keep same build and button layout as 7/5D bodies.  Seems it would be difficult to squeeze a FF sensor and pentaprism into a smaller body anyway.

I for one am very interested in this camera. I have a t2i and a 24-105. I've been wanting to upgrade to ff for a while now and I was planning on buying a 5d mkii. Until I heard about this new ff that is. If this new "6D" is a reasonable upgrade to the mark ii I won't hesitate to buy.

It is true.  I so want this rumor to be true today, but I will patiently wait and improve my skills.  I will go home this evening and have a tough conversation with my 50D, explain she must carry on for a few more months. :)  Of course the toughest conversation is still to come.  When I purchase my next Canon body, my 50 D is going to have to break up with its 24-105 F4L

22 MP? YAWN! I'll wait for a FF that actually has a visible difference from current top of the line APS-C bodies at typical ISOs.

And if the wait is too long, I'll get a D800.

A cheap full frame body?

Careful Canon, be real careful.

Not knowing the intention of your comment, I hope they do so. DSLRs were FF when I entered photography some 30 years back. There were moderately priced bodies and higher priced bodies. So, if they get back to more affordable FF bodies after all this time, I appreciate that. The chance with that will be: 6D, 5D, (a gap for some other type), 1D. It will cover everyone's needs. Along with 60D and 7D- type cams it's gonna be a blast.
I am really happy, when these rumors really materialize although I am opting for a 5Diii, due to its character as an allround tool.

I'm really hoping when they say 7D style body, they mean the pop up flash and metal body with weather sealing.   I was hoping for 5FPS or so but that would be too close to the 5D3 but I rarely use burst anyway.... I'm just a spec snob.

Something similar to the 5D MKII with better AF would be more than enough for most just a slight upgrade would make the camera much more useful!

The 1DX 18mp sensor (keeps the MP lower than the 5D MKIII, 7D body and sealing, 7D 19af autofocus system so not to compete with the 5D MKIII and 4.5fps to be useful but not compete with the 5D MKIII think that would be a great start point.

Possibly a touch screen? Similar to the 650D that you can turn on and off to suit both types of people. Must be high res too. Similar video to 5D MKIII.

I have a 60d and have been looking to upgrade to a ff the past several months and am going to wait on this 6d opposed to getting a 5d ii.   Specs for the 6d look good and I don't mind if 6d has build of a 60d and lacks a magnesium alloy body.   

One lingering point I'd like to make.  Going off today's price for 5d ii and 5d iii kits with 24-105l lens on b and h: the 24-105 is only $620 more than the 5d ii body and $835 more than the 5d iii body.  I hope canon sells the 24-105 as the kit lens with the 6d for around $700 extra above the price of the body but maybe that is too much to wish!   Thoughts?
5d3 --- 60d --- 50mm-f1.8 --- 18-135mm --- 60mm macro --- 70-300is --- 100-400l --- 24-105l --- 17-40l --- 430ex ii

The 1DX sensor and 51k native ISO (without extensions) plus "7D body and sealing, 7D 19af autofocus system".  How about that at 2k USD?
