OMG no scroll joystick for faster AF selection :(

Looks like the selection wheel is on the main wheel at the back. Depending on the size of the body (still kinda hard to tell, is it really all that compact? It looks like a 7D) that wheel might be in an awkward spot to reach for.

*edit: took another look at the photos on the previous page. Yeah, looks pretty compact. I couldn't fit my 5D3 comfortably in one hand. But I have small hands...

Does it look like its the same physical size of a rebel?

Wait a minute..the direct print buttons missing..

No sale man, No sale! I use that button never and its exclusion seriously impacts my productivity somehow!

lmao!!! You sense of humor is back on track now

I actually like the camera. It has to be better than the 5d mark II in many ways.

The 60d combination scroll wheel/joystick is about as good as the mini joystick. From the looks of it, same thing here, which is a good thing.

It looks like it's the same size of the 60D and I think they got a hand model with smaller hands to try and trick you into thinking it's bigger (they do that you know!)

Everything I've read so far says its a lot lighter than a 7D and quite a bit smaller, I think its 60D-sized from the looks of it, so yeah, Pretty small

But I have heard the "feel" and build is more 5D Mark III in its feel despite the lighter weight...and I dont think thats a bad thing

My bigger worry is the joypad, I could actually go for a cam thats lighter than my 7D (Medical issues suckkkkk) but the joypad might be trading one problem for another :(

Agreed. A smaller sensor will always cost less than an bigger sensor assuming comparable pixel densities. No issue there. But take this example, I would guess the raw cost of the APS sensor would be something like $50, and say the FF sensor is $100. 2X the cost for the sensor, but only $50 additional for the camera. I would guess the other electronics of the Rebel and 6D would actually be the same given the feature set. The Rebel costs $800 and the 6D cost $2000. What's with the extra $1200 cost adder?

First, it's not just the sensor that is bigger. Shutter, mirror, viewfinder, etc. all have to be larger.

Second, the difference in price of the sensors is larger than that, and it's not just material costs. For example, if you double the area of the sensor then you are doubling the chances of a physical defect on that sensor so you end up with more units rejected which increases costs.

That said in the film days we had $200 SLRs which had shutter, mirror and viewfinders, in fact, Thats pretty much everything that was in a film SLR, so those parts CANT be that expensive...

Im sure Canon could easily go into storage and repurpose the old shutter mechanisms from say, the Elan 7 or something for a DSLR

^^ I suggest used 5D II. :)

I was getting ready to pick a barely used 5d mark II from a friend for around 1400-1500. New they are around 1800-1900, but now I'm not sure with the 6d. 6d = better processor, screen, possibly better AF.

I'd wait, when the 6D ships, the 5DII will possibly drop a little in price, I doubt it will go up...

Only thing is if you have no camera -now- then I'd say get the 5DII -now- Having a camera now for a few months is better than no camera waiting for tomarrow

That said, I'd maybe suggest getting a lens or two, You will have a whopping total of 1 lens for your new toy otherwise

Speaking of, I'm massively disappointed that the 6D only comes in black, Everyone knows Red ones are faster

I just bought mine for 1550 from a member here and it's pure awesomeness.

I honestly haven't had any troubles with my AF.. I don't know if it's because I'm not a pro or if I don't shoot birds and such, but no problems yet.

I don't think you can say that until it's been tested, who knows it might have better focusing than the 5DM2!
