It's just a rumor ( I hope )

First of all sd card! when all pro and prosumer canons use cf, similar AF to the MKII and new sensor with less mp than the MKII, this sounds like a step back and it would be doubtful canon would release a camera like this. My guess is the spec is from a prototype that was being used to test and the final camera is yet to be finalized.

What does f2.8 in regards to AF?

Thanks

Specs are interesting, maybe my 5dmkii wont loose that much value after all.

<strong>Canon EOS 6D Specs?<br />


</strong>I received this spec list this morning, and it seems to have also appeared at <a href=\"http://digicame-info.com/2012/09/eos-6d-20.html\" target=\"_blank\">Digicame-info</a>.</p>
<ul>
<li>A new 20mp sensor</li>
<li>Full Frame</li>
<li>4.5fps</li>
<li>ISO Range 100-25600</li>
<li>DIGIC5+</li>
<li>APS-C Sized body</li>
<li>Weathersealed</li>
<li>SD Card</li>
<li>Built-in Wifi & GPS</li>
<li>11 AF Points, f/2.8 Cross-type in the center.</li>
<li>3″ LCD</li>
<li>Full HD (1920×1080)</li>
<li>Available December 2012</li>
<li>Price: $1999 USD Body Only (Speculated price)</li>
</ul>

<p><strong><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">c</span>r</strong></p>




Correct me if I'm wrong but this would make this a 5DII in a Rebel body with Wifi for pretty much the same price, right? Why would I want that?
For 12 or 13 hundred I could see people jumping on this who couldn't or wouldn't afford the now reduced Mark II. But for the same money?
5DII - 50L - 135L - 200 2.8L - 24-105 - 580EXII - 430EXII - FD 500/8 - AE1-p - bag full of FD lenses

11 AF Points, f/2.8 Cross-type in the center.

Why would Canon do that? I hope that it is just a rumor!!
Otherwise D600 will kill this camera.

The Japanese website also says that Canon will price it at $200 (Y20,000) below the Nikon D600.

Canon have not followed Nikon's pricing policy in recent times....1DX v D4...or 5DIII vs D800......T4i vs D3200

Folks, it's been called a 'consumer' level body for good reason. It's for people who want to move up to a FF from a Rebel, and already have a few lenses, but don't have the coin for a 5dmkIII.

Get your 5DmkII while you can. You won't be disappointed. With this new camera, you might very well be.

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.

if this is true the camera is a big dissapointment....
Cheap, economy cameras are always a big disappointment to people who need something better.  And high end, expensive cameras are always a big disappointment to people who want something cheaper.  So every new camera is a big disappointment to someone.  If it's not designed for their specific needs and budget, then it's a big disappointment.   There is no way to please everyone.  That's why they make some ten DLSR models — each of them is not a big disappointment to someone.

The 5D2 has always been noted for it's IQ and the same goes for the new 5D3 which has a pixel pitch of 6.25 microns. Based on this 6D spec, the new 20MP FF sensor would have slightly larger pixels with a pixel pitch of around 6.6 microns...
....so if the IQ was 'out of this world' then perhaps Rebel-users would be prepared to part with 2 grand for a body like this??

Personally, I would LOVE a:

  • Fairly cheap
  • Full Frame
  • Compact
  • 20 MP
  • Clean High ISO
  • Wide Dynamic Rage
  • Weather Sealed
  • EOS body

I wouldn't mind if it had onboard popup flash.
I don't care how many focus points it has, as long as they're fast and accurate.
Pivoting flip screen is another don't-care state, as long as it gives good chimp.

Clearly you are new to this forum. Such rational logic will not be tolerated! :)

Highly suspicous. 

It would seem like this spec would have at most a xxD tag, maybe Rebel tag.  And the rumors have all been about the 6D.  So I guess we've conditioned ourselves to expect an entry level to the PRO line, in FF.  This would be something else entirely.  Maybe the 70D?  Viewed in that light, it wouldn't be as bad. 

The free accessories (GPS, Wifi) sound too good to be true.  The new sensor sounds fishy.  That seems like a lot of R&D for not much difference.  I like the ISO range if its pretty clean up to 12800.  The AF system sounds like next gen rebel or xxD maybe?  And just because one of the points is a cross type 2.8 point, that doesn't mean the rest aren't the older type cross sensors.
