Looks like the user will focus and recompose like in the 5D MK II. Meh. :)

why do you even post if you don't have any information.

I don't know what it means and that is why I asked the question. I don't want to buy a camera and not be able to use the lenses that I have already bought.

No full frame camera has ever supported EF-S lenses, nor will one ever.

Have you even give it a thought as to why canon decided to put those in? Not saying they aren't useful, but Canon only bundling these cr@p because they know they can't compete with the Sony sensor, you know the thing that actually matters when you spend $2k body only...

Sigh think people think....this is sad :(

Yep and 9 years ago Nikon couldn't compete with the Canon sensor...This stuff is cyclical, Canon came out with the CMOS sensor and everyone was left in their dust, Sony caught up...

What's wrong with the Canon sensors?

Don't even start, I'm sure you know better than that.

I'm out. Enjoy your GPS tagging. Personally I value DR and MP more.

Same fellow who said they could not put a more advanced AF module in the 5DII due to space being limited? Then came up with a 50D, 7D and 5DIII? :lol:

My point is that if Canon is changing their basic model line-up philosophy, it would have been planned years ago and will take years to accomplish.

Sometimes during the cycles of several projects, a feature can miss one project by weeks or even days, then manage to make it into the cycle of the next project.

Different projects will have different cycle times. Rebels have short project cycles--we can expect new features frequently to show up in more than one Rebel model before it finally makes it into a camera with a longer project cycle.

At one point, the feature might have been too large. By the next cycle, all components (or certain components) might have been miniturized enough to include it.

It always amuses me how people seem to think camera companies conspire to deliberately keep them--and them personally--frustrated.

I was really hoping the camera would have a Facebook app. I'd much rather have that than improved DR.

Nikon full frame cameras like the D600 will operate in a crop mode and accept crop lenses, which Nikon calls DX lenses.
A nice idea I wish Canon had implemented.

Nikon has been winning on dynamic range for a while, if that is important to you why did you wait for the 6D to be out to make the switch to Nikon?

Indeed. The leapfrogging between Nikon and Canon that began in earnest in 1971 merely continues.

Canon still hasn't figured out how to include lens hoods with lenses, and they still have the worst warranty in the business, by like three years, so......

We know, but the fact remains that no FF camera supports Canon EF-S.

I think it does, the WiFi feature should allow easy uploading to Facebook I would imagine.

Here are some things that stood out to me...

High Performance Composing and Focus
The EOS 6D has an entirely new 11-point AF system for fast, accurate AF no matter the situation. With its new centered cross-type AF point with EV -3 sensitivity for improved performance and focus in low light, and a newly developed and bright 21mm eye point viewfinder with 97% coverage, the EOS 6D offers impressive performance in both composition and AF, even in the dimmest lighting situations. Offering not only One-Shot AF, AI Servo AF, and AI Focus AF, the EOS 6D's AI Servo focus can be customized with tracking, acceleration and deceleration tracking sensitivities, and 1st or 2nd image priority adjustments. For even more customization, adjustment levels for the wide-angle and telephoto ends of particular lenses can be entered and recorded into the camera's memory.

The simplicity and convenience of Wi-Fi built-in
The new EOS 6D features built-in Wi-Fi, incorporating cutting edge technology into the camera's compact and lightweight design. The EOS 6D's exposure settings such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO, focus, and shutter can be operated wirelessly using an iOS or Android smartphone* with the free Canon EOS Remote app. Using a smartphone with the EOS Remote app installed, shoot remotely from a distance, even in Live View mode, for those difficult-to-capture shots; you can also review images in the EOS 6D without having to take it out of the bag, and easily transfer and save images directly from the camera to a smartphone.

Comparative Playback
The EOS 6D's comparative playback mode enables images to be played back two at a time, side by side. A tremendous, in-camera timesaver, comparative playback means images can quickly be enlarged simultaneously to compare focus, blur and noise, and can be individually rated, deleted or locked.

Silent Shooting
The EOS 6D offers a silent, low vibration shooting mode. By slowing down and muting the shutter and mirror reflex action, the camera is capable of handheld, virtually imperceptible operation for discrete shooting in more situations.

Maximum Burst
Based on 8GB memory Card:
• JPEG Large/Fine: Approx. 73 Shots
• RAW: Approx. 14 Shots
• RAW+JPEG Large/Fine: 7 Shots

Based on 8GB UHS-I memory card:
• JPEG Large/Fine: Approx. 1250 Shots
• RAW: Approx. 17 Shots
• RAW + JPEG Large/Fine: 8 Shots
