These are listed as "Official Specs" but I don't see an "Official Announcement" from Canon?

97% viewfinder coverage and only 11 AF points? Well there's still a reason to buy the mark iii...

I like it, if the 11 af points are all cross type it's definitely a winner!
So, any chance the af overlay isn't digital like the 1Dx and 5D3?

I don't understand how in any way this is a better camera than the 5D2 :) maybe the burst rate, but that's about it.

I am still convinced that the next camera I buy after my 5Dc dies is the D700

VF 97% Coverage
AF 11 points
No built in flash (not a deal breaker)

Not impressed , i can live without the GPS / Touch screen and Wifi and have a better AF and a 100% VF coverage . For me the AF will be the deal breaker . I'll wait for the reviews about the AF , sensor and ISO performance . Deep down i don't want to move to Nikon and start my gear list from scratch .

If the autofocus points are cross type I'm sold. Period. I cant take the crappy 5DII autofocus anymore.

Has a few features over the 5D2 in addition to burst rate. ISO range up to 102400, Face detection autofocus, bigger screen, ability to use SD cards.
Wonder how the IQ will compare.

I'm sure they have the pre-prod camera already in their hands.

6D = Fail!

It's worse than a 5D2...

20.2MP and 11 AF points, seriously Canon??

I am well and truly embarrassed as a Canon user. This is not going to compete very well against the D600....:(

I don't see the point of this camera, they should have just dropped the 5D3 more.
