Other than the 11 AF with 1 cross type I don't see anything that is a disappointment from a lower cost FF DSLR. What did you guys want. A MkIII at $1500?
All new FF DSLRs should have dual slots, preferably of the same type

That way you can save to 2 cards at the same time for added safety. The first wedding you shoot where the card gets damaged before dumping the shots - you'll agree with me.

Why should a Pro wedding photographer go for a low end FF? That's probably not the target market. Wedding photogs make a lot of moolah so they should not be skimping on the investment ;)

Canon, just give us a FF with 7D features for goodness sake.
70D, 10-22mm EFS, 17-40mm L, 15-85mm EFS, 100L macro, 50mm f/1.4

Wouldn't having built-in wireless eliminate the need for a back-up card slot, though?

Not when they start their business they don't, and they don't need as many af points as on the 5d3 which are made for servo af. Actually the 5d3 with the center point af should be quite sufficient for weddings, if it wasn't for the a little higher banding and less very high iso capability.

... if you have a high end mobile phone or laptop with enough battery power & hd space around to accept the raw files wireless, then maybe - if the firmware allows for an immediate push transmission. But still just a second card should be more convenient.

I cannot imagine it is really just one cross like on the 5d2, much more likely it's just one high sensitivity cross. But to answer your question: Of course no one expects a 5d3 for $1500, but some (including me) expect a firmware- and hardware-crippled body that is designed to protect the 5d3 and is nowhere near the d600.

The problem isn't one of backups, the problem is that feature X is present on camera Y and thus user Z wants in on camera W too.

If your cards are getting damaged at a wedding shoot then surely you have to call into question the procedures being used before the equipment itself.

Oh wait, no, that would mean actually accepting responsibility for something bad happening and Americans seem allergic to anything where they need to take personal responsibility for their actions.

I am not an American, but what does an American have to do with a camera with a damaged memory card? Unless you were sarcastic in which case I apologize.

I wanted to upgrade to FF, but oh well... I'll just upgrade later.  Meanwhile, I'll just continue shooting with my trusty old 500D.

All, 500D + 100mm F2.8, freshly shot around our condo.  It just reminds me how fortunate I am to have a DSLR that works.

After i saw 5Dmk3 deeping below $3000... i really wonder if the 5d3 will make it down to $2.5K maybe refurbished canon soon.

with the spec of the 6D i might save a bit more and get the 5d3 now that its around $2800 on ebay. other might say $800 will get you a nice L lens, Im talking about the body here.

Hahaha!  Sorry.  Just got bored reading this thread (but still hoping this isn't true).  I just hope Canon announces already the new 6D.  I really want a new FF but if it's not what I expected then I'll just buy a new lens.  You see, I want a 5D3 but due to budget constraints I'm looking at the entry FF.

Of course not BUT there is a very similar camera to 6D named ... 5DMkII. But everyone considers it "old" so it is a nice trick for Canon to create a similar camera (and in many aspects a lesser one) name it 6D and ask the same amount of money 5DMkII costs now!

I only saw the 5D3 dip below 3K once.  That was Beach Camera.  Does anyone know if they are legit and did any one actually score one?  I see it near 3K every once in a while but those look grey market or from sketchy ebay sites.  I guess my great hope is hat the 6D pushes down the 5D3 by a few hundred dollars.  I'm in at 3k.  Right now 3.5k looks like a bridge too far.  It has to come down no?

As mentioned earlier, if you live in the US then you can still get it at $2750 on eBay from Adorama; an authorized Canon reseller. They seem to be clearing their stock for their new year.
