dharma108: Hmmm...a gold award for a $1200 DLSR that shooters of sports/action and/or wild life--as in birds of flight, etc--can not realistically shoot in raw mode because of the buffer limitations?

Something does not compute for me here. The buffer limitations is a total deal breaker for me. Should it now be known that the 7100 is just for still photography?

Sergiospain

Shooting action in raw often means missing the best actionshot due to bufferingspeed and less frames a second.
Jpeg quality is great on this camera, why should you risk missing the picture for a little extra picturequality.
Besides, you will only see the difference on very large prints, screens , certainly not on anything smaller.
So no any anynewspaper will need raw , maybe the centerfold of a high quality paper would benefit from action shot in raw .(if you dont miss the shot)

Sports/action are not shot in raw but always in jpeg.
Absolutely no use to shoot raw for action in dx

JDThomas: Instead of these over-priced "photography" bags I usually buy tactical military bags designed for weapons. They are highly padded, ultra-durable, and about 1/3 of the price that these photo bag companies charge.

I could buy these in bulk sell them at twice the price and still come in way under what these companies charge for a product of lesser quality.

Looks like a good bag made to lug around . Ad some padding and you are good to go.
And yes the price is good/normal as well. Think Thank and others overcharge enormously for simple bags but they know that people like us like to overpay for expensive photo lenses and camera's so why not but a to expensive bag ? :)

" the Sony RX100, which bridges the gap between point-and-shoots and pro-quality digital SLRs."

"bridges" LOL

Mike Sandman: Canon offers the 6D, a relatively affordable full frame camera with improved technology vs. the 5D II. Forum readers complain that it doesn’t have everything the Mark III has and more; dPreview raises a skeptical eyebrow.

Sony offers the NEX-6, a more affordable version of the NEX-7 but with 2/3rds the sensor pixels and no touch screen. Forum readers cheer about the price and dPreview applauds the arrival of a less fully featured but less expensive model.

Like Sony, Canon’s filling in its product line by offering something less expensive and less fully featured. Nothing wrong, stupid or venal in that, any more than there’s anything wrong with Sony’s product strategy.

Those are just specs now , we need to see how both camera's perform before it really means anything.
My guess is the Canon 6D will have better AF then the 5DII and a better centre point then the 600D
