Who will be buying this Canon 6D....

I for one will not be buying it....(1) If I needed full frame I'd save up and buy the 5DMkIII.
(2) I do birding/nature, so this FF is no good to me.
(3) I got CF cards, so sdxc is useless for me.

(4) What I want/need is a 7D update with NO noise from ISO 100 to 800 and little noise thereafter.

So clearly this camera isn't aimed at you and Canon won't be expecting you to upgrade.

Is Canon Nikon taking us ALL for Cash Cows, knowing that most will give away their hard earned cash for ALL their updates that are really not updates..

What sort of idiot would buy all their updates?

Canon release different cameras, with different specs, at different prices. I really don't think they expect everyone to buy all of the different ones - or even to automatically buy the next camera above their current one just because Canon have released it.

You buy the best camera you can afford at the time, you use it until it breaks/wears out, then you buy a new camera - the best you can afford at that time.

I love my girlfriend, my dog and my canon 7D 5DIII - even though none of them ever do what I tell them

I am learning photo graphee - see the results at

Mmmm! Me thinks there be plenty of idiots out there who keep buying these updates, otherwise Canon would not make them..So if they did not make them, perhaps then we could get decent prices in UK instead of Rip Off prices..

YEP! Canon and All the others keep releasing these cameras that are pointless and pointlessly expensive to say the least. Surely they all must be losing profits HUGELY by bringing pointless cameras out if no one buys them. No wonder they be Outragesly Expensive.

First port of call for Canon and others is to bring out a camera with much much much less noise then we will know they be making cameras for Photographers. More Amatures than Pros in the World.

Also, most photogs use CF cards and got EF-S lenses so Canon want us to spend more cash...News for Canon, I reach 65 years old on 19th and retire, but I got no cash to spend in Broke Rip Off Britain. So I'll buy a bag of Jelly Babies and Bite their heads off instead.
