The 6D will sell...a LOT.  It's just like when the 7D was launched to give those moving up from a Rebel to the x0D series another option in 2009... "7D or 50D?? Hmmm...if I buy the 50D will I wish I'd bought the 7D in six months?"

The 6D Will sell a lot????? HAHAHAHA............ At the same Price you can have something very very very BETTER: Nikon D600! I always loved Canon.... In the 2012 a product like that with that features and with that price is VERY VERY RIDICULOUS. See what the D600 have more for the same price!



You can't compare what happen with 7D: it's ridicolous!!.....

The biggest disaapointment is the Ergos on this camera.

WHY CANON!? WHY DID YOU GO BACK TO THE 60D LAYOUT! Why!.......

No Mulit selector, Funny thumb dial with d-pad. ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

I see a second 5D2 or 5D3 in my future.

In fact, Canon's global Japan site places the 6D BEHIND the 7D in it's pecking order...check it out...1D series, 5D, 7D and THEN 6D....then 60D.   http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd-e.html

This probably means that you will get less cps points (US) or only cps silver (Europe) for the 6d as its not "professional". But this is mostly marketing and doesn't necessarily mean the 6d is worse than 7d/5d2.

Not the best specs for photography, but it could be a great backup for my 5Dmk3 for filming :)

No MFA?  Not a killer, but......

dpreview says: "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)."

I sit corrected and hanging my head like a doofus for reacting prior to having read everything.  Good news!

Well the low rent autofocus system and a top shutter speed less than my current 50D have put my wallet right back in my pocket.  I have $2,600 burning a hole in my pocket and I don't think this camera is worth what they are asking.  It really looks like they took out as much stuff as possible and hope the "full frame" would sell it.  Disappointment.  In another 6 months I'll be able to afford a 5D3.  I think that is the way to go
Could of just about had one yesterday as they were selling the mark iii for $2750 on Adorama's ebay page.
I've heard that in a number of places.  I look at canon price watch daily and I did not see this .  Does Adorama have a separate ebay page?  Do you have a link?  I would have jumped on this but I keep missing these.  Thanks

It was certainly there, that's how I got mine. Try signing up for e-mail notification. I got emailed it 11:02 am, and when I went to the ebay page only 1 was sold. It was linked off the usual 5D3 page.

How old are you?  15?  Event shooters with multiple Canon bodies don't even look at Nikon and vice versa.  What is so "very very very BETTER" about the D600 grasshopper? It is still a Nikon after all, no? 

...and it's exactly like the 7D launch, 60D launch and even 1Dc launch... in that it's another option to choose from... having more choices is always "very very very BETTER".

I'm not familiar with CPS specifics, but I agree, there is no "better/worse"...I think it's just organized by intended market, build quality...the 6D is only a partial alloy body, mostly aluminum and exterior is plastic and rubber like the 60D but a bit more ergonomic by the hands-ons I've read.  Canon calls it an "enthusiast" camera and the 7D a "prosumer" (even though clearly it's a pro APS-C camera, build is better than 5D2).

I can see some uses for it however. For starters, table top stuff in studio's where multi cross type sensors won't give a lot of benefit anyway, or for just the casual weekend enthusiast who wants particularly decent IQ.

However for myself and obviously many many others, this is just... well... *insert expletives* Looks like Canon don't mind if Nikon kicks them in the guts this time around. Can't believe it only has one cross type focus point. Wow. Yes, this should have been under $2k to be more viable.

I guess those who are interested in the 5D2 should snap them fast in case they are very soon discontinued. Save a few dollars perhaps too.

Why didn't they call it an 8D? Weird.
In the end, only the image matters... Not what equipment you used to get there.

Indeed. Unless they plan it to sit on top of the 7D2 (that is, unless they plan the 7D2 to suck even more than this).

edit: forget it, now I'm just being mean; sorry

Well, two years later we're gonna have 6Dm2 with multi-cross focus points.

Am I not the only who would prefer a DSLR with e.g. 7 dual-cross type AF-points over one with 1 dual-cross and 42 or so f/5.6 lines?

I'm glad some find it good. I suspect the extra ISO stops to be useless for any practical purpose as they often are when the boundaries are pushed just so they can print it on a marketing ad. More likely both cameras will be identical and unless canon resolved its banding noise issues at low ISO, image quality will be practically a non differentiator. As others have said, the one point being extra sensitive remains to be seen how good it actually is but overall the AF system is likely inferior as 1 point won't offset the loss of every cross point besides it. It also can't focus with f/8 minimum aperture lenses so the TC story for this camera is as bad as the new ones.

ultimately there is one definitive thing canon can do to make it better and that is to make it cheaper since it is unlikely to capitalize enough in the few areas that it can as far as specifications go.

price it at 1500 dollars and I'll get one no matter how bad it is.

If the example video Canon has up for Deep Green or whatever it's called is any example, then it should have pretty good ISO as they had several shots at 12800 that looked very good.
