Not the guy with an overpriced camera.
I take months to research a product before purchasing it. My phone, camera, computer, etc. So I guess I'd catagorise myself as a 'maximiser'.
However, once I bought the product, I hardly look back. The things that I took months to consider before purchasing, I am incredibly satisfied with it.
It is the things that I bought with instinct and without survey, that I often regret. "Why didn't I do my research? That camera would have suited me more than this! Cost less too! This camera has features that I don't even need! That camera has features I didn't know I need!"
Whereas if I had done my research, I'd know that no matter what I've decided upon, I have thoroughly considered all my other options.
I'm happy that this guy has found his preferred way of purchasing products. But my point is it's definitely not for everyone. He has no right to tell us that his way is the right way.
If you too feel that this article is not right, you're not alone.
Stop comparing this to the Nikon, especially based purely on paper specs. You'd only have the right to do so after some hands on!
Am I the only one who thinks the 6D makes sense when lined up with the 60D, 7D and 5DIII?
The only thing that doesn't make sense is the name of the camera. It should've been 9D. Now everyone is expecting it to be a camera between the 7D and the 5DIII, while it's really basically a 60D with a full frame sensor.
So I'd put it somewhere between a 60D and a 7D. You can't sort it according to price because of the FF sensor!
Anyway... I wish I'd wake up one day to find the 6D lying beside my bed, because I'd never buy it.... way too much for a student. I'll just stick with my S100.
The Canon Malaysia site with the similar message:
I have one of the cameras affected with the lens error, and I won't be pleased if they offered anything less than a full replacement, a camera out of the affected serial number range.
It's not fair that two people can pay the same amount of money for the same camera, but one has a defected one and the other hasn't.
Kudos to Canon for acknowledging the issue and offering repairs, but repairing it isn't enough considering how many people has sent it for repairs more than once for their defected cameras.

I'm only an amateur and correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the biggest disadvantage of the 'mirrorless' camera the lack of a 'live' optical viewfinder?
That's what the DSLR basically means isn't it? Digital Single Lens Reflex = mirror that reflex light to the viewfinder, as well as the sensor. So when we say 'mirrorless', it essentially means that it lacks precisely that.
There's only 1 reason why the DSLR is monstrous in size... it's for that viewfinder. And when you remove the mirror, you sacrifice that viewfinder.
And hence that is the biggest drawback of the mirrorless camera. Isn't it self-explanatory?
Camera, lenses and printer FEATURE SEARCH on mobile. Nevermind if it looks like desktop. And THEN the forums.
Henry M. Hertz: but do they have FM radio? both are too big... i need a small f0,5 lens on a body as big as a credit card.
why no included printer?
And a cupholder. I'll never buy a camera if it doesn't have at least ONE cupholder. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1002&thread=39931676&page=1
Come up with a flash database next. :)
Already waiting for its replacement. It should have DIGIC 5, and I'll be very disappointed if it doesn't have a 24mm wide angle lens.
