The 6d will be able to focus in -3 ev so in that regard, it's even better than the 1d X.

Sure - *if* you happen to shoot in the dark and *if* you don't have a flash with af assist light (or the distance is too far) and *if* your lens is still able to provide an acceptable shutter speed - that might exclude the kit f4 lens.

The question is how *precise* the af will be at all and at esp. at low light, otherwise it's useless. We'll have to wait until January to find out... to me, the 6d sounds more like a "high iq tourist camera" than d600 competition.

Maybe it's wise to wait to thrash a camera until after something other than a speclist is provided? The 6d will be able to focus in -3 ev so in that regard, it's even better than the 1d X.

Being able to focus and being able to focus accurately are two different things though. The second part is our concern, given the AF system.

+1.  If they can only combine both.  :)

Oh well, I really don't care if *everybody*  has decided this camera sucks after seeing a first speclist, I just think it's wrong. Everybody thrashed the 1d X for having only 18mp, it has better DR, noticeably! Way less noise, even at lower iso's, sharper and more fine detail than the 5d3 and it isn't exactly the only time this has happened. The 24-70 was thrashed because of the price, but hey people who hav. ACTUALLY used seems to think, hm it's expensive but it is the sharpest zoom ever made...

I think people need to calm down and wait to see how the 6D performs in terms of the IQ, AF system performance and ISO performance.
If they are good I will be going for the 6D. If not then I'll just have to be patient and save up for the 5D MKIII.
Canon were never going to trickle down the killer features of the 5D MKIII to the 6D (aside from the Digic 5+ processor). As that would cripple sales.

Are you saying you already have forgotten just how much the 1d X has been put down by people who shoot all grey subjects in pitch black of how bad the lowlight af is? Also the same with the very long thread about 5d3 and weddings? Lol.

Two thoughts: -

NO DIRECT PRINT BUTTON = EPIC FAIL!!

But overall, probably not a bad little camera. 

In wishful thing mode, I wonder if Canon can add WiFi and GPS to the 5Diii as a pre-christmas facelift?  That would make the 5Diii a very attractive proposition.

I Like that idea but doubt it very much!

I think that the pitch of AF points is more important than the number of points.  I use single point AF 90% of the time and use hyperfocal technique.  The thing that bugs me most about the 5D 3 is the noise banding.  It has bugged me so much that I've bought the D800 which doesn't have this issue.  It's frustrating to have a great lens producing a sharp image and then having to soften it by using Dfine when the image was shot at 400ISO or less.

It seems the 6D can be controlled by an Android or Iphone. That's pretty cool! People will make timelapps  : :P :P within the week. Remote LV anyone?

Anybody know if the wireless can trigger the RT600? (I guess if it that were the case, the press release would say about it.)

D600

:)  I knew you'll say that.  I'm leaning now to D600 but I'm still crossing my fingers + toes that 6D sensor will be  better or at least perform somewhat close to D600.  I love Canon colors.  A lot of my friends are using Nikon but somehow they can't produce the colors of Canon.  A lot of them got D90 and D7000 but they still envy my pictures.  I'd hate to switch but as I said before, I'm at the crossroads.  Whatever I choose, I know I'll stick with it for a very long time.
