Eh no dice, the 6d kit is not available at the Oregon Fry's, and getting it here in WA will push it over 2500$ with taxes. Might as well order it from B&H with the few extras and ship it to Oregon again. So gonna have to decide in the next week if i want to drop the 2500 or hold off, and hope for the same or a better sale sometime in the spring............ so hard to decide.

the body itself is available though right? $1699. is the kit a better deal?
$2299 for the kit including the 24-105L...i would immediately sell the kit lens most likely. Hmm on Buy/Sell someone's trying to sell his lightly used one for $750.....! Looks like cheapest new is $750 but lots of places selling for over $1000... https://www.google.com …qigLrsYHgDQ&ved​=0CLwBEMMf (external link)

So by selling the lens for a conservative 700, the 6D can be had for $1600...interesting :o

$2299 for the kit is a great deal at the moment. Unfortunately I don't live near a Fry's warehouse. I've been watching the kit price at a few sites. Amazon just dropped it today from $2499 to $2415. Once I sell a few items I will be buying this kit and taking it to New Zealand.

Got mine Thursday in the 24-105 kit. Grey cloudy and freezing all day. Friday it snowed. Finally the sun peeked out yesterday. 22 degrees with a wind chill of about 7F. Great time to wander around with a new camera...lol. I'm such a wimp.

I've only taken about a dozen shots so far but the weather promises to improve in the next few days, so I'm hoping to get out and learn more about what this badboy can do.

I am very pleased with 6D as a landscape camera.

Some more beautiful images in here.

I have a question for anyone who has a 7D, on the 7D for focus points you can choose one shot, spot expansion etc. but on the 6D the only option is one shot, am I missing something, is this the only option for focusing. Not that I mind and so far it hasn't been a problem but on the 7D I sometimes change to spot or expansion depending on what an am shooting.

I also have it set up so I can change the focus points quickly with the directional pad which is great and also using back button focus.

The 6d doesnt have the advanced AF features the 7d has. No spot focus no expansion.

If you are coming from a 7d, you may be disappointed with how the 6d works with focal points. It is pretty poor. It divides the 11 points into 3 groups and you can only move left or right within the group. There is no around the world feature, to cycle through all of the points, as you can easily do with the t4i. The only way to get to exactly the point you want is to set up a custom function and then push that spot on the hard to get to 8 way controller. I had a very long talk with Canon CPS about this. You cannot even get to all of the points when pressing the Q button. Bummed for sure, but absolutely amazed with the images that I am getting.

Hmm, I have no problem getting to a specific focus point on my 6D. I do miss the joystick for this, though.

Joystick or front wheel - Canon took both of these away on this camera.
