The bottom right version looks a bit like a golf club, which might appeal to this camera's target demographic.

Gothmoth: im a canon guy.. but this?

im not stupid enough to buy this for .. say 2000$ ... when i can get a 5D MK3 at 2800$ (some deals are as low as 2700$).

this is a stupid camera .. only one cross point sensor... only 97% VF coverage.

it´s a camera for beginner who don´t knwo what to look after in a good camera.. but they sure be tempted by the fact they can upload their images to facebook... vomit.....

2000$ does sound a bit high, but the price will probably drop after the first month of sales. I expect this to settle around $1600.

NomadicVision: The summary suggests that it may tempt users using APS-C cameras, but I actually see another group who may be tempted - existing full frame users who need a solid backup.

Most of my work is in the travel industry. Although I mostly use my cameras for still shoots, I need a backup for video shoots (I currently have the 5D M2 and 5D). An option was to by the 5D M3 and use the M2 as the backup for video, but that option is expensive. The other option was to get a 7D, but who wants to go smaller?

On paper, the 6D seems like the perfect backup.

Memory cards are relatively cheap. One 32GB SD card should be enough.

I find the focal length choice for these fixed lens full frame cameras odd. A 35mm is not exactly a popular choice for SLRs, so why for this camera? Its an awkward length - not wide enough for scenery and too wide for portraits. I guess its supposed to be for environmental portrait/street photography. Imo, a 24mm or a 85mm would have been more useful.
