And more importantly, who's selling their 5dc/5dMKII to fund it?

I love me some used deals! :D

with a max shutter speed of 1/4000, they're not marketing this to anyone wanting to use a 1.2/1.4/2.0 lens outdoors in the middle of the day!

I can see selling a 5Dc to fund it but a MkII? I can't see a MkII owner moving to the 6D. The two cameras are way too close in capability unless Canon has finally solved their low ISO banding and noise issue. If Canon at least matches the Exmore sensor in capability, I would jump in a second but alas, I'm sensing that it's pretty much the same sensor that is in the MkII/MkIII and will suffer the same shortcomings.

I'm waiting to see. I'm holding off buying a 5dII at the moment. I want to augment my 7d with something that handles higher iso with IQ comparable to my old 5dc. If the specs on the 6d match the real world I may get one.

While the 5dIII fits that bill I can't afford it at the moment. My specific needs are to have a spare body, not one high end one.

I'm intrigued by the 6d but they have crippled it in ways that make sense and don't make sense. The don't make sense ways are why the 6d isn't as anticipated as it could be. It makes me more interested in what a 70d will be like.

In real world if it performs very well in low light then I may pull the trigger.

The 6d perfectly fits my needs as I'm never using my 7d's full potential, plus I shoot landscape and night street photography, which is what 6d is geared for. But I am waiting to get my hands on one to see what it does before I commit

Not me. The AF system is just not attarctive. Should it has at 7D AF system, I will consider for sure.

I've been following all the 6D threads with great interest. Seriously considering purchasing, possibly even pre-ordering. So far I've liked everything I've seen and read.

Sorry OP, I don't have a 5Dc or 5DII to unload, though :) I love my trusty XTi and it will be staying with me as a second body, along with all of my EF-S lenses.

The 6D is a simplified, or 'entry level', FF camera, whereas the 5DII is a more fully controllable FF. While there might be some advantages from the 6D in terms of some feature(s), it neverthess is like stepping back from a 7D to a 650D.

I'm not sure this is a fair analogy. From the specs the 6D is all that the 5DMkII is except for a few small features and in many areas it is better. The 6D has a higher native ISO capability, higher expanded ISO capability, a larger back LCD screen, shorter startup delay, shorter shutter lag delay, in camera HDR, in camera GPS, a higher burst rate, and better battery life. The MkII beats it with a 1% increase in viewfinder coverage and 1/8000 shutter speed. That's not really a scaled back MkII. Plus, the 6D had an improved AF system that is more sensitive in very low light. It will be interesting to see how that performs.

But for me it still comes down to IQ. If it has basically the same sensor as the MkII or MkIII, it will be a disappointment. Canon really needs something to compete with the Exmore sensor.

Except in the UK where the shutter speed will easily be fast enough :rolleyes:
