On Canon EOS 6D preview (1035 comments in total)

appears that canon is content to place new products to coincide with nikon's new full frame efforts. Rather than be innovative and trying to capture the market segment they seem to be ok with sharing the bounty with nikon. Since nikon appears to be willing to push the envelope, i am not sure this is a good long term strategy for canon.

rocknhead: Excellent report. Only prob i have is in my opinion handicapping the canon by using a nikon lens with an adaptor on the canon. That does not seem to me to be an apples to apples comparison. I would have thought to be fair you would get say a good tamron lens and use a lens made for each camera.
I understand that by using the exact same lens you are getting a better
comparison in the cameras BUT it is my opinion that would not over weigh the handicap put on the canon camera by using an adapter and a nikon lens.

They are both great cameras. If i did not have a lot of money in canon lenses (5d mkii) I would prob buy the nikon if i was starting over today.

I dont quite see how nikon can put that much technology for that money.

a more valid comparison would have been that you had 2 of the same 3rd party lens and test each camera. then you would only have the variation between the samples

Its still hard for me to believe that the electronics of the nikon lens that was made to talk to a nikon camera would act perfectly talking to a canon body. Does not make sense to me.
