My concern with that is that in 2 months they might have sold out of 5DIIs brand new in box at stores and used prices might creep up a bit more because of supply/demand

When the rush in the December for the Holiday season is over, the street price of the 6D will line up. Hope to see the price tag like 1700 €, now the cheapest one in Finland is below 1900 €. EOS 7D is about 1300 €, EOS 5D2 about 1800 €, EOS 5D3 about 2900 € and finally 60D is about 900 €.
NB! All prices include the local 23% VAT and are the body only,

I believe US pricing has the 7D at $1399, 5DII at $1799, 6D is $2199 and the 5DIII is sitting at $3499 officially with frequent sales bringing it down to $2899 or so...

I COULD jump now, Grab a 5DII and have some fun then sell it off in a few months (Or sell my 7D and 15-85) But my gut keeps telling me i want a 5DIII...

You're right, the sensor on the 6D is very slightly smaller, its ~0.1mm smaller in each dimension, but because it has less pixels, the pixel pitch on the 6D is 6.55 microns vs the 6.25 on the 5DIII (and 6.4 on the 5DII).

Ok fair enough (I hadn't done the calculation), but would that difference be noticeable to the naked eye? Assuming you're not pixel peeping?

I think the factor that helps people decide between the 6D, 5Dii and 5Diii is what they photograph. Among many other differences, the 5Diii has an autofocus system that almost everyone agrees dominates the the 5Dii and (on paper) 6D autofocus.

I shoot weddings and events - I'm looking for a second FF body but can't justify the price tag of the 5Diii, so the toss up for me is another 5Dii or the 6D. I'm leaning toward the 6D, but the 5Dii is such a solid performer and I almost just want to get another one.

Honestly, I wouldn't be all that surprised if the high ISO performance was on par with the 5DIII. There are enough other differences between the 6D and 5DIII (AF, max shutter speed, x-sync, build quality, controls) that they don't really need to cripple the high ISO performance to segregate the bodies into two distinct markets. In fact, while almost everything is still speculation at this point, the impression I have gotten is that it is supposed to excel at low light performance. My prediction is that IQ will be very similar, it will be everything else that separates the two.

I would agree completely.

I don't think Canon can afford to cripple anything right now. They have lost the lead when comparing sensor performance and camera performance as well especially in the mid range cameras, and that can easily translate into loosing the lead for market share as well.

lens correction

I consider myself to be an advanced amateur. I have preordered the Canon 6D and plan to use it with the Tamron 28 - 300 all in one.
Is lens correction feature new? Will it likely only be applicable to Canon lens.
Thanks

"Lens Correction" is relatively new but it won't work with 3rd party lenses, and even if it did, it won't turn a mediocre lens into a great lens.

Interesting. It doesn't mention on the CA correction if its jpeg or RAW; I would presume its jpeg only, so that in RAW you still would need to correct CA in PP ... Can anyone confirm this, who has used it on the cameras listed with the exception of the 6D of course?

I think that is a good assumption as raw files should be the output of the sensor before any post processing is applied.

Provided it's updated to the 2.x.x firmware, the 7D can do chromatic abberation correction too, but not on the fly. However, there is now an ability to process RAW images in-camera, and if you do that, you can not only do the vignetting compensation (peripheral illumination, as Canon named it), but also distortion and CA correction.
But only when converting RAW images to jpegs in the camera after exposure. Peripheral illumination correction is the only such feature the 7D can apply in conjuction with exposure.

Thanks for all the great replies, I am new to this forum.
Hope to get the D6 before a planned trip to NYC mid December.
One lens I do already have, Canon EF 35mm 2.0, is in the lens correction database.

Hey if you don't get the 6D before your trip, and it's available by Dec 10th as B&H website currently states, there's always the B&H Superstore! Worth a visit even if you do have the camera already. I went to NYC last year with my family and the B&H store was on my list of destinations :D Picked some goodies while I was there, of course.

Slightly off topic but I did mention you can get a 6D there if it's available...

That's a great suggestion as we will be in Manhattan. Only my second trip should be awesome that time of year.
