I really don't see how you could make a full frame "starter" camera. Remove AF adjustments? Instead of releasing a new camera, why not just sell the 5D MK II for cheap?

I imagine it's more expensive to keep two FF sensor making lines going than to make a new camera using the 5D3 sensor.

I agree disagree with those who say why does Canon not just keep selling a 5 year old body?   Because would you buy a 5 year old BMW when Mercedes is selling new cars for the same price?  Sure both are nice cars, but there have been improvements over the last 5 years.  I could almost promise that the 6D will be better than a 5D2 in every way.  Better AF, Better metering, Sensor improvements maybe?, Better LCD, Faster FPS hopefully.  Pop up flash.

Actually, if I was in the market for a nice car, but I didn't have the coin for a brand new one, I would probably go for that 5 y/o BMW and be completely content with it.  I'll let somebody with a fatter wallet than I get that new Mercedes.

I love my 5DmkII. A replacement FF for ~$2kUSD is going to be something less. Better get your 5DmkII while you still can.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.

Except you forget that in this scenario (Marine03 's point .. I think), Mercedes would be selling the new model for the same price as the 5 yr old BMW. No need for the fatter wallet. Or are you saying the 5 yr old BMW is better than the brand new equally priced Mercedes? .. This analogy confuses me now.
I like Audis better anyway.

The 5D3 is not and will NOT be a best seller DSLR like was 5D2 in the past years; the reason is very simple.... the price.

So they will come with a cheaper (in my opinion only 1k cheaper FF or APS-H DSLR). There will certainly be a 3D, 6D, 9D or whatever they will call the camera. They will try to reclaim the 5D2 sales. Obviously today this will be much harder considering the price and features of Nikon D800 and D600.

IF it's a fake, I guess it's a very good one  8) Time will tell. But according to your gear list...did you "visualize" your dream? LOL...

@nicku: "So they will come with a cheaper (in my opinion only 1k cheaper FF or APS-H DSLR)."
Only my two cents: a 2.5k USD cam will unlikely be a plastic body then. 18/22 MP, iso 51k. AF same as 5D3 (?) or slightly lesser...Well, I don't know too much about tech. No trolling intended.

Cheers, Pedro.

I dunno if its fake. Ive just found it on some chinese page and tried to run it through Image Forensics - looks real but, sure, could be fake. And according to this pic, it looks 7D-like.

Yes, I want to upgrade to FF, but I can wait - no rush here  ;)

+1 Ready to go 5D3. But no rush here as well. Chinese page sounds promising... 8) 7D-similarities would match with earlier rumors...from NL:
http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/cameras/Canon_6d.html
"Design closer to 7D than 5D3 (smaller and with flash)
7D style AF system (19 pt) and VF LCD
7D metering
Single Digic 5+
3.9 fps
3 inch LCD
51200 max ISO
sub - $2000 price point at introduction"

5D Mk III is too expensive for me (I can buy it but cant justify that cost). I guess we will see some info surface soon. My bet is body simmilar to 7D (metring, build, AF) with 22 or 18 mpx sensor.

Costwise in the same boat. I hardly commercialize my photography. What would be the max in shutter actuations? 100k? Hope they'd give it a 150k, especially if the price tag could be slightly higher as expected, according to Canon's pricing policy  these last months...

Thanks Admin for all these rumors, but...

I don't understand why Canon doesn't communicate more about the next products. OK, we are supposed not to be concerned, but yes, I would like to know which DSLR will be mine in the next few months !

EOS 6D : buy a FF only because it's a FF ??
What about aps-c sensors (for telephotos) ?
What about a poor fps ? Is 4.5 fps usable ? I don't think so... If you really want to use a quik fps to get the right moment, then you need at least 7 fps or more. EOS 7D is a good exemple.
And for those who need quick fps and can't afford a 1Dx... what do I have to do ??

Wait a supposed next 7D II ? Or 70D ?? Can Canon tell us "Yes, the 7D line is NOT discontinued" ?
When do we have serious rumors about the next DX line ?
OK, I can wait for a few months, my 7D is OK... but I would like to know if there will be a "serious" DX, or if I have to save money for a 5D III (6 fps only if good conditions is not enough, so 5 fps max in poor light)

Sorry for my poor english, i come from France...

Same as me  :) Im just taking it as a hobby, not a profession. Well, shutter actuations - I can live with 100k. With my 450D Ive taken +- 80k in 4 years and its still shooting ok. What I think is they need to replace 5D Mk II (sure, its still great camera) as their cash cow - and with those rumored specs it could be a damn good seller.

These comments are ridiculous. It appears everyone wants/expect Canon to produce a camera that is equal to or better than the 5D Mark III but for half the price.

I saw that 6d picture and I've seen a 9d picture so I'm thinking it's a fake. But I'm not gonna be surprised if a 6d came out, I just want it to outperform the 5d2 and be bundled with 24-105 that's all I want oh and before october  :P!
