This is really suspect.  There are parts of the review that he seems to have forgotten to change the wording from 5D mkiii to 6D.  It seems that much of this review was cut and pasted from his first impressions with the 5d mkiii.  Also, I remember very similar images from the hibachi grill with his kids (same angle and everything).  He either really likes going to the hibachi (I don't know anyone who goes ore than once a year), or there is something very fishy going on here....

Part of the 6D review is KR's 5DIII review.

Not that kr has much credibility left but all he is doing is a cut and paste job from his 5diii review probably so he can say he was first. What a crock.

Don't be fool guys  :) it's the review of 5D3, where is every word "5D3" replaced by "6D". You should read "Under construction, don't read further" ;) If you don't trust me, than open in new window review of 5D3 and check it by yourself  :P

I do the same thing with my blog posts, only I don't have them "live" while I do it. He's just using the framework of his old review as a pattern for the new review. Funny, re-reading this "6D" review has me even more excited for my 5D3, which Adorama says will be here on Thursday! At $2,750, I'd say this is the "Best DSLR on the planet for the money!" :D

That KR review was the most confusing read, I could barely decifer where the actual 6D was being reviewed and where the 5dm3 was being reviewed....LAME!

5DM3 for $2750? How? Thats Crazy! Why wouldn't you spend $750 more than the 6d...? Adorama shows $3459. No compredo unless it is a refurb or you are trading another camera in for it.

Guess he's using the 5D3 review as a template.  ;)
Makes it easier to replace specific content and adjust certain parts instead of writing a complete new review.  ;D
Maybe lack of HTML knowledge or whatever... hahahaha...
I still don't get it how he could publish a non-final version! Instead of kudos he's getting laughter now...
Oh well... It's KR, so no kudos in any case i guess. ;)

Good ol' Ken. Also, he used Katie's picture (exactly the same photo) in a review for another camera already (or lens). I swear I saw it before! But this crook is known for reviewing stuff he doesn't have so no surprise there.

In the Metering section of the Ken Rockwell review http://www.kenrockwell.com/canon/6d.htm  - the "Ryan LOVES fire!" sample picture is shown as being shot with the 6D but I remember seing this picture in his 5D3 review. In fact it was shot with a 5D3: http://www.kenrockwell.com/ryan/images/2012/2012-08/5D3_6073-ryan-likes-fire.jpg

I can understand you want to be fast and get traffic while the topic is hot but this is a sloppy cut&paste job from his 5D3 review and lacks professionalism. You just cannot throw a half job online, full of errors and misleading information. #fail

Yes, he's used the template and has the "don't read below" here message because of that (pretty near the top).  As we all would, he is looking for traffic to lead into purchasing and make money.  But, it is sooo easy to at least comment it out in HTML so it isn't seen.  It is sad that he can't at least trim that down.

I look at info on his pages yet, but stopped taking him seriously when he started dissing on Sigma because of the color of the lens... dark grey instead of black.  What does he think of the Canon L glass telephoto?  That is a seriously light grey!!!!   Besides, I absolutely love my Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 stablized lens... now I need to find its counterpart for my new Mark III since its for crop only.  And I didn't find much helpful information in his reviews.

In a perverse sort of way, this makes me feel better. I couldn't imagine how any reviewer would have gotten a copy of the 6D back in March.

I don't get upset about Ken. He's a businessman and he's figured out his way of making the internet work for him. Nothing wrong with that. Too bad somebody couldn't show him how to hit the "save draft" button instead of the "post" button though. :)
