I guess the real pain is for the guys looking to upgrade their 5D mkII. Waiting for the 5D mkIII price to come down, this won't happen as there is now a cheaper product. The extra kick being that 5D mkII second hand/trade in prices will probably now drop sharply as who wants to buy second hand when they can have more recent technology new?

The 5D3 has been on sale for around $2,800 a lot recently. That is a pretty huge price drop. At $1,500 difference in price the 6D looks a lot more attractive than at just $700 difference.

Sooner or later to stay competitive Canon is going to have to bring the body only price of the 5D3 sub $3k, and the 6D to around $1,800 by next holiday season.

All this will as you say drive down the prices of the 5D2 and 5Dc used.

This is going to be priced almost three times the price of a T4i? Really? Guess no 70D. Where would it fit in this lineup?

Sorry, but without going through the entire thread is there any information on the dynamic range of this sensor?

I believe the 5D2 is all magnesium, but they need to use plastics for the top of the 6D to allow the wifi and GPS antennas to work.

100,000 cycle shutter count & a price tag of $2099.00 price tag would have me saving for the mark iii or look @ the nikon D600 exact same price point but so much more!

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.

My point was not about that, it was about the absolute fabrication of facts as to why the 5D series had crap AF!

Anyone doubting the AF. 7D, 5DIII and 1Dx all have the LCD screen AF module. 6D, like the 5DII and 5D has the basic, swapable (great for some) AF points on a screen module.

Just asking, you have personally tested the af of the 6d?

nobody really knows till its released. i was honestly a bit miffed that they did not make all of the 11 points cross type, but according to the canon website, like i stated earler, that the outer most points become vertical sensitive at f/2.8. to me that is a good start. rereading this makes me think that when they say upper and lower points vertical line sensitve means that while in landscape orientation. if that is the case, then i might re-think this as an upgrade for me. if they mean upper and lower points while in portrait orientation it might be worth while. either way only the center is -3EV sensitive. the others are +.5...useless in the dark. but...having the center being that sensitive could really be a great improvement from what i am used to. i might have a 1D mark II for sale soon if anyone is interested!

5Diii was $2750 at Adorama over the weekend, I think I know what we'll all be saving up for ... patiently waiting for the 5Diii to hit $2500 ... maybe over Black Friday.

Not expecting anything from the 6D. Complete waste of time.
