If I had a large sum of money, I would bet that it would not debut below $2k. The 5d2 is still at 2k at the online store, 7d is 1.5. The 6d is supposedly the best of both, its wishful thinking that its cheaper than both. I think the 2-2.5 range would be a safe entry for canon, lower and you cannibalize 5d3 sales, 7d, 5d(if it doesnt get discontinued), and might even encroach on the 60d kits/any successor to the 60d.

the mark ii had a price drop on B & H today...

Holy crap it really did drop! Last week it was 2699 early this week it went up to 2799 and now dropped to 2599! Dang maybe I should get it after all! Oh and btw I'm referring to the kit not body only.

If you need a FF and don't have the coin for a 5DmkIII, get your 5DmkII NOW. This new 6D, supposedly an 'entry level' model, won't be as good as the II, and priced higher to boot. You can pretty much take that one to the bank.
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.

do you think as suggested in other topics that:
5dii is entry level at (guessing new prices) 1599
6d at 2599
5d iii 3499

i'm interested if the new camera can fullfill my needs.

Sort of.
You will probably find that the 6D will retail around $1499, 5D2 will still kick around for a while at $2299 then just fade out once stock depletes and the 5D3 will stay around $3200.

If these rumours are true and it has thing such as articulated screen, dual SD cards and good video, it would pretty much wipe out the need for the 5D2 for video.

I can basically see this camera as being a FF version of the 60D.

I wouldn't hold my breath on that $1499 price, maybe $2499.

I was basing that price on the 60D when it came out, it was around the $1199 mark. Add a few hundred for a FF sensor and basically the same build quality and the $1499 - $1699 range would make sense and sell a bundle.

Fair enough but my guess is the d600, based on current rumored specs will be more like 2799. Honestly ff sensors are not cheap, so thinking you can get one for sub 2000 is probably a pipe dream, one id be happy to be disproved tomorrow if the d600 comes out  at 1500.  If canon can cripple a 6d it gives them the latitude to price around 2200 and not eat into sales of 5diii or rebels

The D600 is official now

http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/09/13/Nikon-D600-24MP-Full-frame-DSLR-with-39-point-af-and-uncompressed-1080p-video

Body only is $2100 and $2700 with the 24-85. I guess we can forget about a $2K 6D unless Canon wants to fight really hard.

IF I thought that my skills can't improve and I must focus on gear (which is not true), I think I could consider the  6D as a replacement for my 5D classic (or I could wait 3 years and buy a used 5D3 for less than 2K, but that's another option).


My only concern would be about the sturdiness of the 6D.

A few weeks ago my 5D fell from 1.5 mt (5 feet) on a marble floor [my fault  :-[ ], and survived  :o  (the 24-105 too).

Can someone steal a 6d prototype, throw it several times to test if it will fit a dangerous guy like me?

Maybe, a lot of lost customers especially those upgraders to FF.

hmmm

It must be a great day to be a Nikonian -- although I'm sure the web crowd will complain about the form factor, onboard mic being monaural, and Exposure Bracketing -- 2 or 3 frames -- instead of up to 5 frames.   That last item is a curious omission.   Oh, and it should have come in at the rumored $1600.   yeh.

But still, everything else I see about the D600 at first impression totally rocks.

Now... Canon?

Perhaps they will have a lot of upset former customers.  ;)

Hi

with D600 out (without Vari-Angle Clear View LCD, Sony A99 (limited turning LCD)
what are the odd / chances that the new Canon budget FF camera will have a turning LCD ??

I personally hope that Canon would utilize the articulating touchscreen from the 650D (and the other bells and whistles, too). It should help set them apart and compensate for the missing MPs and slower shooting speed.

Based on the rumor, it won't have an articulating screen. And that makes sense, since neither the 7D nor 5D series has it either.

Personally I'd prefer the articulating screen, but, I'm not expecting it

Well, that depends on which rumor you choose to believe. One says it does (NL) while the other says it doesn't (CR). I personally think it's a big feature and might entice the Rebel owners to upgrade. It is quite likely that the 6D's body will be less sturdy than the 7D and the 5D and more like the 60D so it makes sense for it to have features from the Rebel lineup; features that the 70D is likely to have. Then again, might be just wishful thinking on my part.
