Maybe Nikons D600 announcement hit them a bit surprisingly (?) and they feel forced to come with their own news earlier than they planed.
But I guess they plan over longer periods, too. I guess, they have checked our 5D III wish list thread 1.5 years ago and they rememebered that I loved "Star Wars", "E.T:", "Jurassic Park", "Titanic" and "Avatar" and I predicted all five movies to become the most successfull movies ever (for some time). Than they realized I loved 5D II, which became very sucessfull, too ... and created a 6D to fullfill this wishes and all my needs ... of course they implemented new sensor tech to give this camera the best sensor of all

This thread did fullfill its goal. It looks that there are bodies out now and we get more and more first hand info of production 6Ds. There is an other thread running now and I guess some more will follow.

I will follow and "support" them but I guess I am already convinced and will try to get a 6D as soon as possible (based on availability and my finances). I will let you know when this happened and I guess I will start a new thread telling you my experiences in real life shooting.

Thank you for your opinions, comments, nice words, additional information I was looking for and a discussion that at least gives me the chance to complete my mind concerning this new camera.

Ralph

Ralph - Thank you so much for all of the useful information of your experiences!

I don't follow FM Forums much. Could you please post a link here to your new thread when you get your 6D? I'm very interested in your opinions of the actual camera in hand.

I have read through many forums regarding that some cameras do not look like pro cameras. Well this is a thought I have held for many years now;

I do not care to impress with how my camera looks, I care to impress with how my images look.

I think the 6D has a rather pedestrian DSLR camera look... so no one will call it ugly.

OTOH, I do not understand the big deal about camera looks. I don't even find Pentax K-01 repulsive. Oh well...

Maybe I have a very pedestrian taste. Imo it is a beauty (with grip).

Just a quick sneak peak of the menus on the 6D, of particular interest is the bit about the new AF, seems it has controls that let you change acceleration and deceleration for tracking...kinda like the pro toys do!

This crippled bit of new Canon craptech just might be okay

Why is that? Not trying to flame or argue anything, I'm just curious why that is an issue for you.

For me, I'm OK w/ SD. I don't currently have any SD cards other than whats in my S95, but SD is ok for me because then I can plug it into the reader that is in my Dell U2410 and also I can use the cards on tablets and such. Since SD extreme 32GB cards are around $30, it'll be switch I'm OK with. I think back when I bought my CF cards they were near $100 for 16GB.

Also, back when I sold cameras at Best Buy, CF was faster than SD. I haven't kept up on the tech to see how that compares now.

I prefer CF but nothing specifically wrong with SD. I use it in smaller cameras all the time.

Also, back

Yes! This is a big advantadge, although I do not like the size. When I once shot out of town, I forgot my CF-card reader. Luckily I had the camera connection cord with me, so I was still able to hand out some pics for the the next mornings "intro" ... after sitting half the night transferring pictures. All my digital equipments offer SD card readers but no CF ones. Of course I like 5D IIIs way offering CF and SD.
