Great time to buy the switchers Canon glass on KEH, Ebay and Craigslist.

Why switch?

I think it's time to just buy some glass for Nikon F-mount, get myself a new Nikon branded DSLR and put the Canon glass in storage until such time as Canon finds their mojo.

... just came across a picture that instantly condensed my thoughts about the 6d :-)

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.

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!!.....

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".

first signs in are not that positive though, according to amazon list 6D is currently @ #14 below 60d, a bunch of rebels & dxxxxs, both body & kit D600s and D800. Not very promising for an entry level enthusiast camera...

Yes but with the same sensor, cause Canon heard the people and the people only wanted a new AF  ;D

Nope, on my 5D3, I only turn on cross type. Don't even bother with non cross type points. Maybe for tracking a subject moving across the frame if you don't care about the composition you would want more, but I always follow my subject with the camera to keep the composition the same. And please keep the points further apart. I know the 6D only has 1 cross type, but with the Nikon D600, all the cross type points are located so close together, I don't know that it helps having 9

well, perhaps we should wait until it is actually in stores and available...or production versions have been tested and those tests published... not too many enthusiasts or pros are going to pre-order a 2K camera unseen and untested....not that Amazon is the right litmus test anyway.  The 7D took about six months to gain traction after it's announcement.

Good idea! But which zoom up to 400mm with IS for the D600 or D800?

I was looking at some old reactions for 6D.  I was surprised that some of the people bashing 6D are the same ones praising it or at least giving it some credibility nowadays.  :) ;D

Even if repeating myself: Imho it all depends on the price, because with the 6d you're basically buying good iq (well, and wlan/wifi if you need it). So "just" good iq for €2100: no, but "budget" good iq for @1500: yes.
