2099  :D  That does it.  They gave me what I don't want.  Touchscreen, WIFI, GPS, HDR mode, WOW!!!  Thanks for the memories?

No AFMA

Where does it say that?

From http://www.dpreview.com/previews/canon-eos-6d/3:

"The EOS 6D does, however offer the same AF microadjust as the 5D Mark III. Adjustments can be made separately for the wide and telephoto ends of zoom lenses, and can also be made per serial-numbered lens (should you have two copies of the same lens that require differing amounts of adjustment)."

yup.  sorry, I misquote.  no touchscreen indeed.  I wonder what could be the justifying reason for 2099?

Well, I've got the 5D mark III but I really don't see the point why this 6D gets built-in WiFi and GPS while the mark III does not.. The argument that it consumes the battery faster is not valid in my opinion. It should be possible to disable these functions in the menu for those that don't want to use them..

I think it's because of the fact the 6D has a plastic top plate. The GPS won't work properly through magnesium alloy so you can't build it into pro body cameras without ruining the durability.

Honestly, all in all, is what I've been saying for months.

D800 has always been a far better camera than the 5D3, which has always been ridiculously overpriced. Nikon could tune down some key features and realize a still very attractive camera at an attractive price point - considering it will only go down in a few months.

The 5D3 was already at the beginning a 5D2.5; it was impossible to tune it down while keeping it attractive. The best thing for Canon would have been to price the 5D3 between the D600 and the D800, basically competing with both of them.

I pity the people who will waste their money on this 6D, it's not worth more than 1200$. No one interested in this sort of camera has a +5000$ lens collection, so switching to Nikon will not be painful.

Give it 6 months after they start shipping and Adorama will run a crazy sale like they did on the 5DMIII.  I can't wait.  Good night all.

because they can. 

canon is more and more a camera company for the mass-market-facebook-shooter.

nikon becomes the company for serious photographers without a fortune to spend... im really sorry to say that.

I'm also very sorry for myself for buying lenses.  Well, I guess it's not too late to change path.  I think I'm not that deep yet.  I'll let another month pass before I start selling my lenses.

hell im not a moron.. i safe a bit more money and buy the 5D MK3.

That's exactly what Canon wants you to do. GPS heading and wifi control on the 6d are nice, though.

I pity the people who will waste their money on this 6D, it's not worth more than 1200$. No one interested in this sort of camera has a +5000$ lens collection, so switching to Nikon will not be painful.

Few people will be thrilled w/ the 6d _at_this_price_ ... but if you shoot center point only the 6d is actually quite nice, and given the limited af coverage on ff the other 10 won't see much use if you don't shoot sports.

It's the same as the the 5d3: Good camera, but ridiculously overpriced.

Sad but true. IMO, the only way can could compete with what Nikon has at the moment is to put the 5DIII at 2500 dollars and the 6D and 1500 dollars. Then I would have preordered a 5DIII when it was announced.
At this point, I won't be purchasing another Canon body except for possibly a used 5DIII in a few months... otherwise i'll probably buy the D600 if the reviews are great or the RX1.
I wanted to be a die hard Canon fan, and was for a few years, but if you can't see that they are taking their customers for granted at this point then you're basically blind. This is 2012, i demand innovative, fun, cutting edge products that are competitive in the marketplace and offer upgrades in specs/quality at similar or lower prices.
IMO, this is a downgrade from the 5DII at a price that was higher than Adorama's price for the 5DII over a year ago!!!

Well, i'm too deep (at least, too deep to bother), so I might buy some off you.

But dammit, they're getting used on my 7D and EOS3 only, until there's something decent and affordable to put them on.

Maybe if i get a better job in a few years I might jump too, if the 5D4 and 6D2 are also price/performance disappointments...
Too much gear, too little space.

Sorry, but no, this time is different.

The 5D3 is all in all a capable camera with a few trump cards, and most of all is a pro camera; for a pro switching system is a lot of hassle, not worth saving few hundred bucks.

For the amateur it's all very different though, and 6D is just not up to today's standards. Not to yesterday's either, in all honesty. And being it so, the price is insulting. Price it 1200-1300$ and it will be a different topic.
