Does B&H charge sales tax on items shipped to California? I'm tempted. But I'm holding out for the 7D MKII unless I find a fantastic deal on a 5D MKIII.

What a deal!
The lens is $1,200.00 new, so your getting the 6D for a grand! I bet B&H is out of stock.

Man, full frame sensors are getting cheaper by the day. That's basically, $1400.00-$1350.00 for a Brand New 6D.

True, but they strip down other areas. The biggest issue with the 6D is it's AF system. They have made it easier to step into a FF, but I do not think it is right they gave it a lower quality AF system. Even a T3i has more cross type AF points...

That's inaccurate on two accounts. T3i has 1 cross type AF point. The T4i has 9.
6D has a very capable AF system. I've owned the 6D, the 7D, 40D, 50D, 60D, and ALL the Rebels and based on my experience the 6D AF is much better than most people claim - most of these never owned a 6D.

The center point is very capable, focuses in lower light than my 7D and 40D (tested them), and the outside points never give me any trouble except for the most demanding situations (ran into problems maybe 0.01% of the time.)

So granted it's not as good as a 5DIII, or 1D series AF system, not even 7D perhaps, but it's much better than some people claim.
It's odd that the 5D II, which has been one of the most popular cameras of all time, had a similar perhaps even inferior AF system than the 6D and still became a living legend. There are countless shooters who do not need the state-of-the-art AF system of the 5DIII but rather save that money (currently about $1200-1400 over the 5DIII) and invest it in something else like glass. I'm one of them. I think the 6D is currently one of the best bang for the buck cameras - especially at this bargain price.

No sales tax for California residents as far as I know. Only NY. Didn't charge WA residents tax.

Just got off the phone with BH and they still are matching Best Buys price of $2199. You have to phone in the order. Now I just have to decide whether or not to keep the 24-105. I have the 70-200 2.8 II and the Tamron 24-70 VC, but the 24-105 was my favorite studio lens, but selling it for around $800 makes buying the 6D a real steal.

24-105mm is worth $750 or so. Add shipping, paypal fees, like $700. Still a good deal on 6d. Price of that camera is falling down very quick IMHO for whatever reason.

I think we all know why. Deserved or not, the 6D is getting slammed due to the perception that its AF system is inferior.

That's good for us :) We get better deals due to the bad publicity, jsut to find out later that the AF system is actually quite capable, much better than people - who don't own one - claim.

I've got lots of crisp BIF shots using AI Servo on my 6D. Nothing at all wrong with the AF system. The only time it stumbled was using the very edge focus point in portrait mode in very low light. Then once or twice it had to hunt a bit. Otherwise the AF has been stellar.

Called up B&H and placed my order. I currently have a 60d and am very interested to experience the difference between crop and full frame. Looking at my lightroom catalog, I have a ton of pictures taken indoors or in not so great lighting. With a new daughter (7 weeks old) I'll probably continue my trend of a lot of indoor pictures in the near future and hope the low light performance of the 6D impresses.

What a deal if you can get the $2199 price like some of us did. I just got a friend to buy my 50D with grip today, so my final cost is $1600 to upgrade to FF and also get a 24-105L. Nice!

yep, it's a no brainer for me. I got it for $2199.
I'll sell my 60d and my 24-105 (maybe around $1300-$1350) and that gets me to a full frame for way under $1000.

The 24-105L is a fantastic lens. I can't wait to get it....again! Sold mine years ago. Loved it but on a crop it was replaced by my 17-55 IS 2.8. So I have that on my 60D and the 24-105L will be perfect on the 6D.
