Canon EOS 6D Announcement Soon? [CR1]
« on: September 07, 2012, 05:48:40 PM »
UPDATE
I had a typo below, it should have read “same sensor as 5D3″. Sorry for the confusion. 

Canon EOS 6D
Another suggestion that the Canon EOS 6D will be announced soon. It might be announced on a different day than the PowerShot and Pixma announcements early next week.

Specifications

  • 22mp (Same sensor as 5D3)
  • 4.5 fps
  • Touchscreen
  • Same AF system as 7D
  • Lower build quality than the 5D Mark III
New source, so CR1 on this.

Anyone else having trouble with the name "6D"?  Canon have never (that I can remember) tagged anything in the XD series with an even number.  Not that there is any rule or that they can't start but it seems a bit strange to me.

What camer would this be? 60D replacement? Or the 'cheap' FF camera?
What would the price point be? ~2k? What would be better than the 5dII (which seems to be available for ~1800 right now)

this this this this
after a quite a bit of hardship, triumph, and beautiful moments captured, my 5dII needs to be retired soon. With a (hopefully) digic 5 processor, similar sensor (rumored), all at a (hopefully) good price, the 5Djunior will have my name all over it!

I frequently shoot with a 5D3 in one hand and a 5D2 in the other.  Have zero complaints about the 5D2's sensor, but the AF drives me crazy.  This would be awesome

2K is reasonable for now.  You pay 200 more for better AF system and better sensor(maybe).  However, I think Canon will just wait till Nikon releases the price of D600.  I will guess the price will be about 15% more than the price of D600.
Many of my friend is waiting for the new entry FF camera.  I just could not wait long enough and jump into 5D3.

Agree!
I hadn't complained the AF system on my 5D2 till I switched to 5D3.  Totally different AF system.

There is nothing wrong with 5D2 sensor. It is pretty good just the AF is messed up. If this information is true, it will be a great camera. I will buy. :)

It is certainly capable of capturing beautiful images but compared to the state-of-the-art Sony sensors Nikon is using it lags behind, particularly in terms of DR.  In fact, if you look at the capabilities of the sensor in the 5D3—and I write this as a largely satisfied 5D3 owner—Canon appears to have made absolutely no progress in this area of sensor development.

If these specs are accurate and if this is priced aggressively, this body would absolutely destroy the resale value of the 5D2.  Of course, I'm assuming that Canon isn't omitting some major feature (like video) that is available in the 5D2.

Flip flash like xxD and 7D?  Or does this FF prevent flip flash like others?  :(
