Please make it around 1500.  I'll buy it if priced like that.

Given the AF system, that's all the higher it should cost.

As usual, Canon found a way to unreasonably cripple it to upsell us the 5D3. 97% VF on a $2K camera??? Really? SD cards only??? This is a $1500 camera, nothing more.
T3 is the bobn2 of Canon fanb0is.

Hi,
One thing I'm confused about is the "Screen dots" on the LCD, not sure if that's a misprint or what.  But 5D3 has 1,040,000, 5D2 has 920,000, and this only has 102,400?  How bad does the LCD look then?
    I think they miss a letter: "K"...  ;D This show that everyone is copy and paste without looking.... ha ha ha  :P

    Have a nice day.

Delay, quality issue, quick price drop (indication of overprice?), boring new product, .... Something is not right. I give two thumbs up to their lens department, but the 1DX and 5D3 might be the last two cameras that (arguably) beat their competitors if they let arrogance and lack of innovation take over.

One word for the 6D?

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

another is.... thank god!
(since I was slow to get my 5D2 listed for sale, maybe now it won't 100% crash in price, although damn, I bet this will knock a couple hundred bucks off it though :( )


but man the D600 just makes this look utterly silly! How can the 6D be the same price?

So, I think it's a stupid spec once again showing Canon being totally behind the 8 ball, arrogant and left behind. But man am I ever relieved and happy personally  ;D I may not have utterly blown it by being so slow to list my 5D2 for sale....

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.

AF systems are basically the same size for APS_C or APS-H or FF so not sure what you mean buy that....

Well this pretty much wraps it up for me.  If I'm going FF, it will be the D600.  My other option is to hope they don't drop the ball as badly as this when then release a 7D replacement....if a new 7D has reduced noise, I will upgrade then and just stick with a crop camera.  I hope this really, really flops and Canon finally wakes up.

Does this thing even have any AF assist points? The 5D2 is 9+6 pts for 15 total I think. 9 regular and 6 hidden assists. So is this one 11 regular but 0 assists? For sports/action/bird tracking that would actually make it a worse camera than the 5D2. Maybe it is 11+6? (the part of me that's wants canon to do well hopes so, the part of me that wants to sell my 5D2 hopes not as well as the part of me that wants them for once and all to finally get woken up before they give it all away.... they were once the total leader in sensors and then video and now....)

$2099 if the Adorama "goof" is to be believed. TBD how good the focus system is. The real question is what's up with this new sensor. High ISO capability? Presumably, this thing will be compatable with the new STM lenses...

Ah whatever, they will do what they will do. I was afraid of this already like half a decade ago.

As someone said at least they have released some utterly kick ass lenses the last few years.
If only their sensor and body division would act with the same drive and pride!

So how does this body qualify or justify an xD name?   Seems to me it should be something like 65D or even a xxxD.  Not that it really matters but I thought Canon's naming conventions had some definition.

So here we have a new FF body for the gimmick crowd - touchscreen, GPS, WiFi and SD variations (I wonder what happened to the Facebook button).  Although GPS can be useful, for most of us it's still a gimmick.   Touchscreen and WiFi, but only 11 AF points and not even sure if there is more than one cross-type?  This camera is pathetic and silly.  But I'm sure Canon will sell a ton of them and that is their objective.

I was really hopefully that Canon was going to cater to the serious amateur /hobbyist crowd before the soccer mom crowd (no offense soccer moms).

With this 6D priced and placed where it is, I don't see Canon building another FF between this and the 5D3--unless of course Nikon builds one and then Canon will have to follow again.

Yip, I'm ticked and disappointed.   >:(

Hi,
    From spec, 11 AF point with multi-area AF... Hmm... look like a sub 7D AF... hopefully, it'll be all cross type AF point. Built-in GPS and Wireless... I think it'll be US$2K++

   Have a nice day.
