it's a good competent full frame camera that does everything pretty well.

But the masses are shooting with cell phones and point and shoots.


I meant within the Nikon FF lineup. Not things that take pictures in general. As Apple said "Every day, more pictures are taken with an Iphone than any other camera"

Well, yeah, but that's a much lower hurdle to get over. I guess the 6D is Canon's camera for the masses, but it's probably about 195th on the list of Canon's best sellers. There just aren't many people shooting with full frame given the quality of the alternatives. Which was not the case in the film days when a much higher percentage of folks were shooting 35mm film. Then, it probably was the format of the masses...

Have you forgotten the Instamatic and earlier the Brownie?
