<strong>UPDATE


</strong>I had a typo below, it should have read “same sensor as 5D3″. Sorry for the confusion.<strong> </strong></p>
<p><strong>Canon EOS 6D


</strong>Another suggestion that the Canon EOS 6D will be announced soon. It might be announced on a different day than the PowerShot and Pixma announcements early next week.</p>
<p><strong>Specifications

</strong></p>
<ul>
<li>22mp (Same sensor as 5D3)</li>
<li>4.5 fps</li>
<li>Touchscreen</li>
<li>Same AF system as 7D</li>
<li>Lower build quality than the 5D Mark III</li>
</ul>
<div>New source, so CR1 on this.</div>

Anyone else having trouble with the name "6D"? Canon have never (that I can remember) tagged anything in the XD series with an even number. Not that there is any rule or that they can't start but it seems a bit strange to me.

What camer would this be? 60D replacement? Or the 'cheap' FF camera?
What would the price point be? ~2k? What would be better than the 5dII (which seems to be available for ~1800 right now)

after a quite a bit of hardship, triumph, and beautiful moments captured, my 5dII needs to be retired soon. With a (hopefully) digic 5 processor, similar sensor (rumored), all at a (hopefully) good price, the 5Djunior will have my name all over it!

I frequently shoot with a 5D3 in one hand and a 5D2 in the other. Have zero complaints about the 5D2's sensor, but the AF drives me crazy. This would be awesome

2K is reasonable for now. You pay 200 more for better AF system and better sensor(maybe). However, I think Canon will just wait till Nikon releases the price of D600. I will guess the price will be about 15% more than the price of D600.
Many of my friend is waiting for the new entry FF camera. I just could not wait long enough and jump into 5D3.

Agree!
I hadn't complained the AF system on my 5D2 till I switched to 5D3. Totally different AF system.

I Really hope its a newer sensor than the 5D II.
There is nothing wrong with 5D2 sensor. It is pretty good just the AF is messed up. If this information is true, it will be a great camera. I will buy. :)

Nothing wrong with that sensor
It is certainly capable of capturing beautiful images but compared to the state-of-the-art Sony sensors Nikon is using it lags behind, particularly in terms of DR. In fact, if you look at the capabilities of the sensor in the 5D3—and I write this as a largely satisfied 5D3 owner—Canon appears to have made absolutely no progress in this area of sensor development.

If these specs are accurate and if this is priced aggressively, this body would absolutely destroy the resale value of the 5D2. Of course, I'm assuming that Canon isn't omitting some major feature (like video) that is available in the 5D2.

Flip flash like xxD and 7D? Or does this FF prevent flip flash like others? :(

5D2 have dropped from 2k used to ~1400-1500 used. I think canon's (pardon the wordplay) superb refurb pricing caused this.

ok, so I guess this is in answer to nikon's new cheap full frame offering. Ho-hum, i'm a little bored. I am waiting for an upgrade to my 5D II but wasn't really WOW'd with the mkIII. And now this.
Anyways, why would it be the same sensor as the mark II?? I mean seriously, that sensor is what, 6 years old? And although it is a marvelous sensor why in the world would they put it in a new model camera? I would have to say "of course it will be a new sensor"

Doesn't the "lower build quality" mean that it will be a xxD instead of an xD series?
Just saying that the xD is Pro/semi pro levels and an entry level of "lower build quality" would not be in the upper strata i.e. xxD

I highly doubt this rumor, I believe if there will be a 6D entry level FF priced @ 1999 USD then it will the same 5DII body but with the 5DIII sensor, that's it. Maybe a few more bells and whistles but not much improvement than the current 5DII body.
