Indeed, I wont be buying 6D but a Used 5D2. It has that horrible thumb dial from the 60D and no multi selector. A No-No for for me.
YOU FAIL CANON. >:(
The thumb dial is fine.  I have a 60D and I like it a LOT more than the funky nub on my 5DII.

I Suppose.

I don't like the vagueness in the 60D's D-pad buttons and using the Multi-selector button allows me to change AF points quickly and is the same though out all my bodies since my 20D. Its hard to break that muscle memory.

wow ... http://home.comcast.net/~NikonD70/Charts/PDR.htm#EOS%205D%20Mark%20III,D600,D800

D600 sensor has same DR as D800 ... 6D will suck air.

Lol, do you think that matters with Canon or the customers? Sensor is the last thing that matters to regular public. They will more likely attracted by the bundled package including free UV filter, lens cleaning brush, and of course Canon's award winning customer service.

They won't care about the free UV filter, etc, it will be "ooh, that camera has 24megapixels and this one only has 20, I want the one with more!"
Suuure nobody reads the reviews.. The customers (at this price range) spend their 3k on a camera just because it has more megapixels than the rival model... Yea sure..

They guy who spends that amount of money for a camera is probably not part of the "regular public" (whatever that means).

For the 6D to review better than the D600 it has to produce better quality images than the 5D3 and the D800.

That's not going to happen.
It won't get a better review, and that's why customers are not gonna buy it.
I think that D600 is gonna get better reviews, and that's why it's gonna sell more. Not because it has more megapixels.

bingo. Unlike the D800 which destroyed everybody offering the ultimate level of detail and quality outside MF, 20 vs 24 MP isn't going to make anybody decide one way or the other. However the D600 will indeed get better reviews because it is the better camera.

DxOmark just posted D600 test results.  They're about the same as the D800's.
What will the 6D rate whenever it get's there?... (good luck, Canon)

I reckon the ISO will be a fraction better than the MkIII   ;)
The DR hmm very close but it might be a point or 2 higher too!  ;)

Shouldnt it be a bit better with larger pixel pitch size of the D600?

The one aspect of the DxO review of the D600 that did catch my eye immediately was the 14.2 EVs of DR, despite having 24.3 million pixels which is clearly a big step up from the 5D mark III's 11.7 EVs that is a whopping 2.5 stops more!

I think the better DR has to be a function of the base ISO of the EXMOR sensor in the D600 (which according to DxO the Nikon scores +700 ISO better in low-light sports than the Canon 5D3). I don't know if Nikon's processing algorithms are so much better than Canon's that this could explain away the large technical gap that has apparently opened up between the 2 camera makers ???

I mean is it hardware-related or software-related? If the latter, then Canon could close this gap pretty quickly without much additional R&D.
