There must be at least one typo in the specs that folks are grabbing from - the rear screen resolution simply can't be right. "102,400" is just over 500x200 dots - less resolution than some of the original DSLRs with sub 2 inch screens.

Ah damm..
I was sooo looking forward to this camera as a 2nd body…
2 things kinda is a bummer to me.
1) 11AF point…only 11?
2) 97% viewfinder….100% should be a requirement for a FF!

Advantage…D600

No kidding, the only thing this camera is beating the D600 is the 1/8000 sec shutter speed. I can deal with the 4.5 fps, I can deal with the 20MP, I am perfectly fine with no on board flash, I never use it anyway, the built in wireless is wonderful and even the 5D mark III does max sync flash speed at 1/200 sec and I love it uses the same battery as 7D. However 11 AF points, COME ON CANON, WTF???!!! I would  have been fine with an improved 19 AF points from 7D and 97% coverage, 100% should be REQUIRED FOR FF. I said it, I would give this camera till I see some test shots mainly at high ISO, if it lets me down on that, I'm getting a D600, PERIOD!

As an owner of the 5D Mark III and 1DX, this camera with it's shiny new built-in Wifi and GPS just feels like a giant kick it the balls. At the very least Canon should have built-in the wireless radio transmitter for firing the new flashes into the 1D series bodies. That would have proven that they had their customers needs in mind over lining their pockets with huge profit margins. Yes they would have made less profit than selling it as a separate unit but still won out in mind share (which leads to larger profits in the long run). As long as we just keep forking over our hard earned money without complaint, Canon has no reason to ever consider changing. It's time we get pissed off over their ridiculous corporate greed of late and voice it.

Even though this post is titled "Official Specs" I think there will be a few typos/changes.  Hopefully for the better.  Where did these "Official Specs"come from.  I don't see a rating??

This is a Super Rebel. And you know what? The Rebels are darn fine cameras. AND are great sellers. The t2i - t4i have gotten fantastic reviews. This will be a good upgrade choice for current Rebel owners. This means big money for Canon. Built-in WiFi and GPS?  20MP?  This is a NICE camera.

The 1DX and 5D3 should have come with built-in WiFi for those prices....  There's no excuse... I'm still pissed the 5D3 doesnt have a user-replaceable focus-screen, no dual CF slots and no built-in WiFi. The 5D3 is a PRO camera.

The 6D is an exciting camera. I'm REALLY interested in what their 7D2 will look like. :-)

I figured it out - 102400 is one of the expansion ISO numbers. I can pretty much guarantee it is NOT the rear screen dot count. Some proofreader must have goofed on the spec table.

Really exciting?  Are you buying one... your post implies otherwise.  A nice upgrade for a Rebel owner... sure but how many are going to spend $2k on a body?   Rebels are nice cameras... and they're $500 - $900.

The 6D is a very nice camera... but for these specs who's buying at $2k?

Damn... where is the official announcement... is this all just a big hoax?  We've been duped... discussing, debating, arguing for hours while staying up for the big announcement...

Probably but not everyone wants those features and it adds weight and consumes power.  The external flash controller gives you physical controls which is probably a lot easier than flipping around in menus?

I said in an earlier post that is very possible that canon will discontinue the 7D series due to the new 6D FF camera.

With those specs i really believe that we will see a 7D2 in the near future ( 1 or 2 Q 2013).

Disappointing features ...

11 AF points, ONE SD card slot, 97% frame coverage... for a 2k camera  :o :o :o

Nikon D600 is beating this camera in all specs with one exception shutter speed. The trend is reconfirmed ( that Nikon is wiping the floor with Canon in the last year and half).

maybe canon puts this in it's lineup so that rebel users surely would want to buy it.

...and everyone else staying with canon, spits on it and stretches their cash/credit to the 5diii.

...and doesn't care about those of us that would jump to nikon for d600.

curse you canon!  curse you!

Given all the hatred I've seen today, that whole list had better be one big typo/hoax to win any love back...

On a positive note, the presence of internal WiFi would probably compensate for the lack of an articulating screen. If Canon are smart, they would release a free software for PCs and mobile devices to enable full liveview control via a wireless connection.

What other FF can you buy at $2k?  Nikon. That's it.  If it has the same metal body as the 5D2, I'd consider it a darn fine camera. Built-in WiFi is HOT.  I don't like the SD card...  That's a real bummer. I'll wait for dpreview to do their comparisons. :-)
