Apewithacamera: They all look soft and whats with all the CA coming through the tree branches? :(

How many blocked Canon fanboys do I count on this thread already? lol. They just can't help themselves, it's sad and very, very pathetic. When will DPReview deal with these individuals?

FBoneOne: I hate to admit it but this kind of lens on a D800e is what could really make me leave Canon after 28 years.
Then I remember my son starts college in a few months and I decide t be reasonable :-)

If you stay with Canon I guarantee you won't be able to afford to send him to College........

Yep, the latest scandalous waste of money out of Canon. Old tech, reset price. Yawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn. 174 other people spotted that too by the looks of it.

showmetheprime: Dear oh dear. Well we can see why you won't be buying it for its high ISO performance. Total lack of detail anywhere, Canon's trademark in camera mushy noise reduction strikes again. And of course we know the sensor's already a fail because Canon will not trump the performance of any camera higher in the pricing tree under any circumstances. With a feature set that most low grade point and shoots can match the question is why would anyone buy this at all? Is this the beginning of the end of Canon? Or are we already well along that road?

Ah yes, it doesn't matter that a full frame camera produces utter garbage where IQ is concerned because all anyone wants to do is post an 800 pixel image to Facebook with their £1800 camera. Don't make me laugh.

What on earth are you on about? The 1DX absolutely smokes the soccer mom's favourite 5DIII, it's not even in the same ball park. So if the 6D is not a "JPEG camera" then Canon have been wasting all of their effort for years, because where Canon's RAW performance is concerned the sensor is a joke. That seems to make the 5DIII a fail too then by that standard. I guess you're right.

Couscousdelight: That "oil paint" effect on a 200iso shot is weird :

Why Canon's jpg engine have to smooth a 200iso image ?

Wow, even DPR agree that the usual overly aggressive noise reduction and smudged detail is the same as the 5DIII. Maybe you should think about that outrageous score you gave that camera against the D800 again. Canon's JPEG engine is a joke - this is a RAW only camera once again. Oh wait, banding prevents any use of the RAW files, so I guess Canon are once again back to the drawing board...

Homam: can't believe there is so much negativity about this Canon already. It seems you have all forgotten how the old 5d mii revolutionized the market with an only 9-point AF system and until the introduction of nikon d800 according to dpreview it stood as the highest image quality dslr in the market.

What many amateurs seem to ignore is that huge differences exist between a camera's specs on paper and how it handles in real life. When d800 and 5dmiii were out in the market, i shot both for around a month and i had many more keepers from my 5dmiii in terms of color rendition, contrast, and focus accuracy. I found miii much more fun to shoot with and much more photographer friendly. d800's menu is way to complicated to handle.

I suppose a multi-billion dollar company like Canon knows what it's doing. Let's wait till 6d is in the market then we can actually compare the cameras better.

I swapped a 5DII for a D800 earlier in the year and haven't regretted it for a second. The 6D just looks like another fail alongside the D600 to me. The AF in the 5DII is awful and the 6D looks like it inherits something very similar to me, which is a very bad choice. Believe me when I say the AF in the 5DII couldn't hit a barn door.

Lets not even get onto IQ and DR which is also bound to fall well short of the amazing Exmor sensor in the D600. Canon are clutching at straws with this release and I'm sure this will be shown to be true in a couple of months time when it actually gets released, if they actually manage to get a product out of the door that is. Remember that the 1DX came a year after announcement and the 24-70 II was also six months late. Canon's products and delivery are looking more and more dated and short on features but still with added price premiums for me and the 6D is just the latest in that line... The 6D looks nothing short of further disappointment.

There's only one reason my this camera was announced by Canon now and that was to try and stem the flow of switchers to Nikon and the D600 and D800. However, making bold marketing claims about an AF with only 11 points and 1 cross type sensor is a mistake. I switched from a 5DII to a D800 this year for many reasons, one of the biggest reasons was Canon's inept AF. This looks like a VERY similar system to me in the 6D and is sure to be pretty poor.

I'm glad I already dropped Canon, it's become a brand based on catch-up and re-used technology with zero innovation. It's a sad day...
