It's probably a bit early to go moaning. Let's see those ISO, AF and DR in real life when it's out. There might be good news there. In any case, it looks like a nice back-up cam.

I kind of gave up on Canon's DR improvements already, after the 1DsIII, there weren't any improvements at all and it has been 5 years!!!

This is just what the video guys want, a 5d MKiii video equivalent without the higher price due to the fancy autofocus and stills features. If this thing preforms in low light like the mkiii then I'd be all over it for video use.

Regarding the Canon 6d..... for the same price, the new Nikon d600 is a better camera based on specs and Nikon's better sensor technology.

Looks like a great little camera to me. Some 5D3 owners will be miffed though - it's got built in GPS and LAN which I guess is pretty useful to some. It's a neat little camera, looks well built and I'm sure the image quality will be excellent.

Rebel upgraders are going to flock to this camera.

Full frame is full frame - that's the killer. It's a compact little full frame rebel - marvellous really.

Anyway, 11 cross-type points well spread and the AF performance could have been questionable in comparison with D600's 39 points (9 cross-type); 10 linear + 1 cross type for a +2000$ camera in 2012 is what it is: insulting.

3.really?

1. the AF sucks
2. no reason to ''upgrade'' from 5D2
3. disappointment

''and lastly Canon made a good step pushing me to the dark side...''
totally agree...

the only strong point that 6D can have over Nikon D600 will be IQ at high ISO, but I do not do many illusions...

I think it's kind of cool how it focuses down to -3 EV ... That's about it.  The price will fall though.

Man 'Screw-Canon' (hyphen to make "one word")
SO basically I spent $1500 for weather sealing on my 5Diii. Plus the $800 on wifi; and to get GPS another $280. The release of the 6D is my tipping point, Canon camera only cares about profit, not innovation. The 5Diii was not the best camera Canon could have released at that price, they intentionally hold back just for profit. The iPhone5 was just released only one year later with better everything then its predecessor and at the same price point; not only that it has better tech then my 5Diii and only cost $167 in material to make. http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4396139/IPhone-5-bill-of-materials-comes-in--167-50?itc=edit_stub
More evidence is the dumbing down of sensors, I'm sure the 6D picture will be 'almost as good' as the 5Diii. The new T4i with Digic 5 should outperform the 7D but Canon wants to keep the out dated 7D selling at least for another year given the recent firmware updates.
I'll keep my Canon cameras because of the lenses, but the fact is others have already beat Canon for less and Canon releases this.


TRANSLATION: My boyfriend has hit me for the last time! Screw him! I'm leaving tonite, packed my stuff up already, walking out the door. I'd like to see him try and stop me this time.......... but I do love him...... maybe he'll change. Yeah, gonna stick with him.

"I own a 7D and a 60D but I'd really like a full frame camera, I'd also like higher quality images at higher ISOs please Mr Canon but can't quite afford a 5D mkiii. I don't really want a 5D mkii as that technology is half a decade old now. Yes my walk around zoom is an EF-s but I reckon I'll invest in a 24-105 L as all my other lenses are EF primes...

Oh, you have a 6D coming out? that sounds perfect for me :)

yes, I'll probably wait until after christmas, I'm in no rush and will wait for a price drop. after all, isn't it the man that maketh the image, not just the casing around a chip/film? I've been doing pretty ok so far with the 500D/60D/7D.

Oh, some people are complaining about the focussing system... does it still focus on the thing I'm looking at? yes? oh, I see..."

so it's a little upgrade for the 7D user that's not in it for the FPS, want's a new toy with a bigger chip. I'm fine with that.

Evidence is emerging that the D600's sensor performs at the same level as the D800 and the D800 is already better than the 5D3 at every ISO under 1600 and even when over, it's not a big difference.

So The 6D would have to outclass the 5D3 by a large margin to be significantly better than the D600.

And we all know that there is no way that the 6D is going to have a sensor that performs better than the 5D3.

Surely I can't be the only xxD user excited about this camera?

  • I really can't justify spending more than 2K on a body (or any photo/electronics purchase for that matter), & this sucker should be down close to early 7D money pretty soon
  • remote control with live view from Android or iOS app
  • built-in geotagging
  • awesome low-light performance
  • AF better than my current 40D, which is already pretty good
  • AF better than 5DII (pretty much the same unit as the 40D's as I understand it)

Yes, the AF is not as good as the D600, and I'm hoping there are some more new lenses coming down the pipe before the end of the year, but I think this camera will take the place of the 5DII in the lineup, & they'll sell tons of them.
