Out of the camera JPGs? Maybe that's why they look as amateur PP?

Here are 100% crops taken with both the Nikon D600 and Canon 6D using 135mm & 85mm portrait lenses @ f3.2
Hmm, Nikon looks crisper and cleaner to my eye between these two images

It's definitely sharper, but a tad less flattering too - just look at the tiny blonde hairs at the bridge of the nose and above the upper lip too, sort of reminiscent of initial criticisms of the D800

Different tastes, I guess.  I prefer seeing those tiny hairs rather than the smudgy look of the Canon image because when doing macro work, I want to see those tiny hairs on an insect.  I can always smooth out skin in PP, but for when I want the detail it needs to be there first place since I can't manufacture it in PP.  Actually the Canon images looks like a rather amateurish PP job like I used to do when first learning photoshop  ;) Just my $.02
i agree. it's pretty sad on here when people are praising a camera for having less resolution and clarity in the images(is that all we can say good about this camera?)
There is no doubt the Nikon sample is much cleaner and crisper than the Canon which is not nearly as sharp and definitely a little smudgy. I am in China so it's a little more difficult for me than in the US, but tomorrow I will be ordering a D600 and 24-70.
I really wanted to like the 5DIII and 6D, but alas, both are overpriced and less of what i'm looking for than the Nikon offerings. I will probably sell my 550D, 5DC, 24-105 and Sigma 50mm soon(most sad about saying goodbye to the Sigma, the thing has amazing bokah!)

+1... We pay for higher resolution only to want to smudge it? The 600 image looks so clean. And while the skin tones on the Canon seems a bit flattering (more reds), the 600 looks slightly realistic between the 2 images (on my monitor) . Looks like Canon had some extra AA filters in stock and decided to slap on 2 per body.   ;)

the 60D images are on the original CR link at the top of this thread... it's a bad link on Canon's site, it says "6D" but the page it directs to is "60D", the Canon Australia (canon.au) links are 6D images and video, CR's link is to the old 60D samples page.


nope, above link points to the correct 6D site.

Canon has posted a bunch of images and videos made with the new Canon EOS 6D. As suspected, their results are terrific.


Have at it pixel peepers!


http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/samples/eos6d/



Well, that's really odd.  Perhaps it's a geography-based thing with the URL based on geo/IP... I'm in NYC and have clicked on both the CR link as well as the link directly on Canon's site with all EOS model sample pages... the one for 6D takes me directly to the 60D page every time, not a 6D page... I only see 6D images on the Canon Australia site link I referenced...  Any idea why that's happening?  I'd love to download high res. and the Australia site only has mid-res. images from what I can see.

For me, this link (in NYC at least) - http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/samples/eos6d/ - links to the 60D samples page - http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/samples/eos60d/    ...and even on Canon's EOS image samples page, it still directs me to 60D... You're 100% sure this link on the line above this takes you to a 6D page?  Any idea why it doesn't work for me?

The Nikon crop looks sharper, no doubt. But I'm using two monitors here, one calibrated and one uncalibrated. On both screens the Nikon model looks like she has hepatitis. The Canon model, however, looks like a real person. Canon skin tone still wins for me.

Don't go overboard analyzing JPEGs posted online.

Start with RAW, and do similar processing so that you know what you get.

One might have sharpening set at "5", one at "0".   Those are just samples that conform to some unknown desire of the shooter to portray what they wanted to portray. A mood, etc.

I am NOT saying Canon will be better, or worse, or anything.  We jsut need a lot more info.

as long as i remember Canon's samples were always subpar, so lets refrain criticism for now

because tourists use MF often?  ;)

Well, actually that's not that improbable because many tourists carry a small travel tripod for shots like the Canon samples. So if they don't mf (... magic lantern with focus peaking, please) they have at least time to use live view and contrast af.

The Nikon D600 is so far out performing the Canon 6D in my opinion. I'm giving the Canon a fair chance and waiting for more reviews from other outlets and not just Nikon or Canon themselves but so far, it looks like I'm headed to Nikon.

hmmm

I think what Canon did with the baobob series is kinda cool.   That equatorial vertical milky way rising out of the baobobs is really quite good.

If you look at the baobob branches of the daylight shot against the sky, the edges are not sharp -- similar to the model's facial details.   I agree with the opinion that not much sharpening was applied in cooking the jpeg compared to the Nikon.

In my eyes the D600 crushed the 6D in that sample comparison, and it you look at the sample taken by 40mm f2.8 STM at f3.5, it's still not quite as good as D600. I compared it with my 1Ds Mark III and the 1Ds Mark III dominated 6D as well. Even with 1Ds Mark II, it still has crisper, more details in its shots. What is happening Canon????? The new camera with the newest technology can't even outperform an 8 years old camera? And don't say oh the ISO performance has gone up, yes it has, but like the 5D2, it's almost useless in sports, not too great for performance shots either, so what's with the high ISO??? You can also push 1ds II and 1ds III's ISO and they are only half a stop below the 5D mark II

The Canon photo is slightly out of focus.  It's focused on the hair over her forehead, the right eye is just out of focus, and the left eye is worse.  Sharpening is not going to help.

Newsflash!!! EF135mm F/2 front focuses on Canon 6D.

Using Dpreview's sample to avoid production model differences, here's a comparison.
6D vs D600 vs 1ds Mark III
top left=D600 ISO100 85mm f1.8G @f3.2 (from nikon image)
top right=1Ds Mark III ISO400 85mm f1.8 @f2.8 (from Dpreview)
bottom left=6D ISO200 135mm f2L @f3.2 (from Canon image)
bottom right=1Ds Mark III ISO800 85mm f1.8 @f3.2 (from Dpreview)
1Ds MK IIIx2/ 7D/ 1D MK III/ 16-35L II/ 24-70L/ 24-105L/ 70-200 2.8 IS L/ 50 1.4/ 100L/ 85 1.8/2x III TC

Then I have to say that Canon fails big time. Astonished that their photographer took an OOF shot and even posted on the web. Even more it has been used as one of the most important samples for the newly announced camera, fail fail fail >:(
