Adorama is Taking Pre-Orders for EOS 6D
« on: September 16, 2012, 12:12:07 PM »
Adorama just sent me a confirmation email for a pre-order of the EOS 6D. The link to the camera does not yet work. But, the description in the invoice says:
ICA6D    Canon EOS-6D Digital SLR Camera Body, 20.2 Megapixels, Full Frame CMOS Sensor    $2099.00
Fun!
I got wait listed by sending the request to my last Adorama sales agent.

When I tried doing that for the 5D Mark III a week before the announcement, my Adorama sales agent just said Wait.

Very sneaky!  Well played... :)
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.

Was your "agent" driving a Good Humor truck or a Mister Softee truck?

They both come through my neighborhood so I want to know which one to "pre" order my 6D from.

6-7 months from now the price on 6D will be around $1700 - same as 5D III. DO NOT put your pre-order in yet.

The sales/marketing manager at Adorama is getting quite aggressive!  In spite of this little foul up, I think this bodes well for consumers.

This is the closest we got to a confirmation of the 6D's existence. Now we only have to see what the camera looks like next :-)

I don't remember the last time canon was so tight-lipped about a release so close to the line. There always seemed to be some leak, some photo, some mockup. Will just have to wait and see if anything is actually announced.

I guess it's also confirmation of a new sensor - 20.2 isn't anything current, is it?

What makes you say that? If all people waiting for the 5d3 to drop in price now buy a 6d, there will be sufficient demand to keep the price above $2000 for quite some time. Imho it'll only be the usual $100 early adopters fee that will be cut in 1-2 month time after the actual hardware release - whenever this will be, knowing Canon...

It appears that adding an "early adopting fee" (EAF) is part of Caon's selling strategy nowadays. The higher end the product is, the heftier the fee is. For 5D3, the fee is at least $500; for 6D, it's probably $200 given its specs. Then you will see some "huge sales" a few months after release that offer a couple of hundred dollars off beyond the elimination of EAF. The strategy has worked very well for 5D3 because two many people were waiting for and wanting it. Not sure about the expensive 24 2.8 IS and 28 2.8 IS. Having seen what's going on with the 5D3 prices, I doubt 6D will receive as long a preorder list.
5D3 | M | 1v
70-200 II | 24-70 II | 16-35 IS | 100 L | 85L II | 40 | 600EX-RT

New 20.2 sensor, continuous AF during video.

(I predict the latter).
