Good interview with a canon exec on the 6D.

Thanks for the link. He does make an interesting point of cross af points vs. low light sensitivity. What I don't really agree with is a smartphone replacing a swivel screen and the 6d as a wedding camera (1/180s x-sync for weddings, af'ing isn't good for anything if the available light shutter speed is too low).

The most interesting fact is that Canon has no problem at all with their prices - they really seem to ignore any competition from Nikon and other manufacturers completely.

i shoot 90% in the ISO 100-800 range.

Same here.

Looks like all of sudden people only shoot basket players playing in candle light and with a f/5.6 non-IS lens.

Not that anyone needs IS for sports, but I would trade my 5D2 for EOS-M with Foveon X3 sensor in it (which is only good at ISO100-200).

depends on the sport if IS is usefull or not.

Sure. Actually, I find it to be very useful for accurate framing when using tele lenses, even in perfect lighting conditions.
