It is good, when people can buy "how to" books from people with hands on knowledge of the subject they want to learn about.  ???

will be a bestseller.. because only dummies will buy the 6D...   ;D

Only a dummy would make that kind of a comment.  Only a dummy would criticize a product before anyone has had their hands on it and had a chance to see how it performs.

Okay, hopefully that's my last rant for today.   :)

So if I buy the 6D - I am a dummy? Exchanging compliments?

Just kidding.

I haven't seen a body of the 6D nor used one - but the concept might be o.k., if and that is the real IF ... the image quality is top notch (DR and sensor noise) at ISO levels between 50 and 1600. And the street price will be in the region of 1500 $/EUR within several months after release.

Just for videography it might be a very clever solution - think about changing settings like aperture and shutter speed noise-free with a smart phone which shows you the live view image ...

Basing on observed forum's needs there are far better books to write and sell:

"Arguing against DXO sensor results in five steps"
"Tutorial on the differences between EOS 5D2 and EOS 5D3"
"Choosing between 5D3 and D800 for dummies"
"Why Canon gear's prices are so high - guide to the world macroeconoomy"
"Reasons for selling 1Dc a few thousands dollars more than 1Dx - pocket guide"
"Canon or Nikon - Ken's mood fluctuations reasons with colorful timeline graphs insert"
"Getting more DR on your photos with the lens caps on (special offer - free scotch tape included)"
:)
