What do you know, what "we" have to guess, eosfun?
Nothing that I didn't write above Ralph. Really I don't know much more than any of you. Just like you I have held the 6D in my own hands and neither I was allowed to take pictures with my own card. But I have asked some questions to Canon representatives and got some answers. I did some research and analysis on how far Canon has made progress in the implementation of the new factory workshops and the latest steppers. I can tell you Canon does some things with the 6D, like with the original 5D. That was a camera that was mostly interesting for the way it was produced, at least the sensor production line. Yield and cost effectiveness were paramount, but at the same time the camera was a milestone quality product. A huge amount of camera for the money. The pro model was hardly better in image quality. We will see this happening again. It's the body features that are the main differentiators. The 5DmkIII and 1DX are better allround cameras, but they lack a few bonus properties of the 6D. That is why I am convinced quite a few professionals will like this camera too and may add a 6D body to their kit. All the Nikon switchers and those who complain Canon should do better to compete with Sony haven't realized yet what the 6D is gonna be. Even since the D600 got it's gold award at DPR today, it can't compete with the 6D in some areas. One of it is offering EOSfun . Nikon makes coolpix, but the D600 can't mount our tremendous EF glass And also the 6D has the built in connectivity. Finally, that great feature which makes the 6D a more mature DSLR and up to the market demand of today. Now let's get rid of those ridiculous WiFi adapters and external GPS modules of the old models. The 6D is specwise a bit underwhelming, but in reality this is a great EOS fun camera with full frame image quality and lot's of creative possibilities. Most important, the 6 is not made of unobtainium for most amateurs like the 1DX and even the 5DmkIII that has become out of reach for so many. Have EOSfun
