Some people will say this is nothing revolutionary, but I find this a quite pleasing, welcome, and relatively cheap model.

And if MSRP is 2099, people will should finally be able to get their sub 2k full-frame DSLR easily.  That said, if I were a new full-frame buyer, it would be hard-pressed for me not to buy the Nikon D600 or even a 5DII, depending on how that camera handles higher ISO speeds.

Audio Features...?

Is there on screen audio level control?

Is there a headphone jack?

Body size is almost exactly that of the 60D, with a little less depth due to no pop-up flash.

That said, if the AF is 11pt with just one center cross-point, it makes it basically the same as the 5dII, which was one thing I'm sure many users had hoped would be improved more.

Looks like the formatting of CRguy's post is still a work in progress, but... is that 5D2 AF?  Again?  Even the Rebels get better AF these days...
No, it is some new 11 point system.  I don't know why they didn't use a more expansive system, or even rehashed one of the older 1D series 45pt system.  Only one cross-type point is pretty much unacceptable.

In short, it's a 5D2, with a touchscreen, a GPS, and a Wifi connection.
Everything else is so slightly incremental, and some are even downgrades, that there's not much between them.
I don't hate it, but i'm not buying one. Even at $1500 it'd be splitting hairs between this and a used 5D2.

One word for the 6D?

Meh.
Too much gear, too little space.

+1, that is the best way to describe this incremental model.

Also, the new sensor makes me wonder if they went out of their way to cripple the video; since the 5dIII video was so clean in terms of being moire-free, etc. Otherwise I can't see much reason in making a completely different sensor just for this camera

Very neat. I dig it. I'm gonna wait until more information comes out. Dpreview has it listed with same specs.
I'm comparing the 5d line to the 6d to see differences.
I find it exciting. But will I get it, thats a different story.

I'm at a bit of a loss as to the 11 point AF system. Not enough detail - if they're all cross-type with a higher-sensitivity center AF point, then it's a lot like the 40-50-60D AF system. Kind of surprised that they didn't adapt the 7D's system to FF though. Other than the center AF point (which is really very good on the 5D/5D2), it is a better system.

I'll wait for reviews before fully judging, though I have to admit I'm a little disappointed.  The AF really needs to be some kind of new badass system to justify 11 AF points IMHO.  Are the mentioned AF features normal or new?  I'm still learning so I don't know.

I noticed it has 1/8000 instead of 1/4000.  If the AF system is really good and the ISO noise is better than an MK2, I might still buy it.  FYI, I'm coming from a 7D.

It's truly a 5D Mark II with a Digic 5+.  Well, almost.

Wondering how many AF points are cross-sensors.

Hopefully the one saving specification the Canon could have at this point might ironically be the 11 point AF system... wait, I know what your thinking, hear me out...

From what we've seen of both Nikon's and Sony's offerings, they're using AF modules borrowed from their APS-C cameras, meaning they occupy a tiny little fraction of the frame, all clustered into the centre. Aside from subject tracking, which these cameras are not made for, and which the Sony will (based on specs alone) probably only marginally excel at, having all the AF points in the centre is a nightmare for all sorts of photographers who would like this as a secondary body, and for those people as basic as an 11 point AF seems, its better than a "19+109 point" that covers a fraction of the frame.

Here's hoping that Canon manage to bring out the only entry level FF with FF AF.
