Adorama has informed us of some bundle deals on the Canon EOS 6D. Like the EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III this week, this 6D pricing has come down to about the lowest levels I have yet to see. You do have to jump through the mail-in rebate hoop with an authorized dealer, but those are pretty quick to arrive.

FroKnowsPhoto has posted a video asking (and answering) which Canon full frame camera he thinks is for you (plus the EOS 7D Mark II). Jared talks about the EOS 6D, 5D Mark III, EOS-1D X and the APS-C EOS 7D Mark II.
I agree with most of what Jared says, outside of the EOS 6D. I think for $1499 after rebates, it’s still a buy now camera. A replacement is going to cost closer to $2000 than the current $1500 pricetag. We’ve heard that the EOS 6D replacement may go a bit upmarket, which could bring a higher price.
Firmware Version 1.1.6 incorporates the following fixes:
Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera may not first use the center AF point to focus, when the AF point selection is set to automatic in AI Servo AF mode.
Fixes a phenomenon in which focus cannot be finely adjusted with specific lenses when shooting remotely with EOS Utility software.
Corrects some Ukrainian language displayed on the menu for ISO Setting.
Firmware Version 1.1.6 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.1.4. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.1.6, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
If the firmware is updated from version 1.1.3 or before, the following setting will be reset to default. Menu > Custom Function> C.Fn II: Autofocus > AF Microadjustment> 1: All by same amount
