Wow all this complaining at this price point, you guys want a 1Dx for a price of a rebel?
I'm fairly interested in this body, I was holding out for 5D MK III and i want to see how well the ISO high performs on this body as that is my main reason for upgrade. i don't need 9000 AF points as i only use the center point 99.9998% of the time, 3fps is more then enough for me as well.
It is hilarious how so many people are complaining about the "lack" of features, its not lack of features it's you get what you pay for, and canon will not kill the sales of their more high end bodies.
I think the issue is that, on paper, the D600 makes a better case for many people, Add to that the fact this camera directly targets a market that may NOT have a big investment in lenses, or that may have to do some lens switching anyways to upgrade means that some people might be more interested in dumping what little gear they have and jumping over to the other side simply because the cost differential is either non existant or very small...
Add to that the fact the competition has come prepared with an affordable kit zoom (Thats pretty decent) and a freshly updated line of 28, 50 and 85mm f/1.8 primes that you can get for not a lot of cash and the 6D might have a hard time selling to some people, and unlike folks looking at the $3500 5D Mark III, the people looking at the 6D might not have 5 lenses (With at least 2 L-class lenses) they need to replace, They might have 3, and only one or two will work on the 6D anyways..
Its not that the camera is really all that bad, its that the spec sheet just doesnt "sell" instantly the way the D600 does... Same thing happened to the 60D, Which was vindicated after it came out when people actually used one and realized that its actually a pretty damn good little camera
Canon however DOES need to refresh a few primes and a cheap zoom to go with it, Like a new 50 prime, and a cheap fast 28 wouldnt be bad either, or perhaps a compact 35mm f/2 to go with this camera's role as a lightweight full frame travel camera... and I think Canon needs to give this camera a 28-80 f/3.5-4.5 IS as a kit lens for around the $2500 mark...
