If you want a nice camera, pay for it.
If you can't afford it, don't bitch about how Canon sold you short or how they should do something like a D600.
Another $1000 and you have a 5D3, get a job, earn some more, save some money and buy what you want rather than hope a manufacturer will give you something for nothing.
Wow, what a condescending post! You sir, are an asshole. I have had nothing but great experiences on this board until this whole 6D thing... and for some reason it's brought out the assholes.
I have a job... a really great one where I make plenty of money (and work hard for it). Photography for me (and a lot of people including the main people the 6D and D600 are aimed at) is a HOBBY. As such there are other places in our lives where we put money other than camera gear... and an enthusiast is always smart to shop for the best deal they can get with their dollars. That's what allows them to continue their hobby while keeping a balance with the rest of their lives.
Could I buy a MKIII? Absolutely! Do I need a MKIII? No. If I am spending $2000 (which is a decent sum for a hobby) do I want the best camera I can get? Yes! Is that best camera a D600? That is looking likely.
This is nothing personal. I'm not advocating that everyone jumps to Nikon or anything like that. But Canon does need to understand that the hobbyist is willing to leave for a better ship. I don't take change like this lightly, but when the facts are staring you in the face and you have to decide where to put your money... You cannot deny that the D600 offers MUCH more for the same price.
I'm not going anywhere just yet. I'm going to wait for the real reviews and make an informed decision... but right now it's not looking good.
Please get off your high horse and try to understand why the rest of us are dissappointed n this announcement...
