Does anybody know if Canon ever read these forums?

QSMcDraw: I've defended Canon quite a few times, but in this case, as I am just making the move to pro, the 6D is not only disappointing, it is depressing. Makes me think the lens investment I made was in the wrong company.

Specs are just awful--sensor, AF, crazy touchscreen that offers little control, no pop-up flash for the occasional fill, no improved live-view focusing.

Canon doesn't care what their current customers want or how the competition is making all the right moves. Blah.

Agree my colleague. I too feel that I invested in the wrong company's lenses. Not that they care though...

Rather disappointed with this camera. It has lower specs than the 7D in almost all aspects. Apart from the gimmicks, the GPS and WiFi I can see no reason why any pro user will buy this. Even as a backup camera, the 7D will be better. What makes me more unhappy, is the fact that they have one cross type focus point in the center and a mere 11 points. Not enough! Then taking away the joystick was another huge mistake and I cannot see portrait users loving this one. No HDR and Multi-Exposure RAW's? I cannot see Landscape Photogs will love this one too. 1/4000th sec max shutter speed is also ridiculous. Shame on you Canon! You skimped your users, and some of them will walk over. The Nikon D600 beats this product bloody in almost all aspects. Canon you loose yet another one. Congratulations Nikon! Sigh...
