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...

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

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

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?
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.

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.

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.

And some are still persistent in their dislike about it.

6D IQ = 5D3 IQ.  Both have better than "good" IQ in my opinion.
With the 6D you settle for a less robust AF system, no second memory card, etc. to save roughly $1,000.  For me and many others that's a good trade off.

Fyi: I'll buy a 6d, too, so it's not like I'm opposed to it. It's just that I don't expect to be able to take very different shot swith the 6d vs. my current 60d, actually I'm loosing af flexibility and reach but am gaining high iso iq.

With the 5d3 af, I'd be able take completely other shots where my 60d af simply fails - so the 5d3 doesn't have a more "robust" af system, but a really different level. I think it's currently wiser to invest the 6d/5d3 difference into filters, lighting gear and other accessories that won't loose value.

I also got a 6D. I am an amateur.
I only like good IQ and depth of field only full frame can give.

With Canon, I get these bonuses: good low light, lighter, and I like the body lay out more.
What could I ask more.
6D and 70D. 24-70 F4L IS and 50 F1.2L
