Hope that Canon and Nikon will seriously think about theyr pricing of present and future lenses because of this beauty :)
InTheMist: This Nikon shooter is jealous!
SHood, and will be about 3% optically better than 900$ Sigma :)
Stefan Stuart Fletcher: What does the knob beneath the name plate do? (Just to the left of the built-in extender)
Usually releases or allows to move the tripod mount/ring
I waited this for years. And now finally when I move to FF, they roll this out :)I know, that Canon had a patent for this a long time ago, but look – Sigma got them first.Good job! And next stop – something identical for FF!? But probably much more heavy and bulky.
pdcm: Whoops! An error: the 4 example images are the same.
Dude, you should use stronger glasses ;)
joe6pack: Live subject at 1.3sec, and then shoot multiple of them and stack them? Wow!
I believe, it's possible only in some early morning and early season, when insects are really sleepy and inactive.I tried this in midday of summer with no luck, especially with dragonflies or usual flies..In midday probably some slow bugs could be better models ;)
kff: sw which that allowed would be built in the camera ... it is about fantasy camera's makers :)
If you can find auto HDR stacking in latest DSLR's nowadays, then probably Focus stacking isn't so far away as we think..
Welcome back Erez, i was waiting so long for this :)
Nice resolution :)Now you just have to spend some time looking into the windows of houses, and you'll definitely find something which owners of those houses wouldn’t like to show for the rest of the world ;)
StyleZ7: Just bought an old Canon 20-35 USM lens for $200, which performs quite nice.I am happy to see, that new lenses are still made in this class, but I am more happy, that I shouldn't spend 4 times more money for probably 10% better image quality ;)
Dan, no - I bought it just because it was available for such price in good condition, and I needed a lens for migration period to fullframe. And this is no justifiying, just an observation..No offense to Nikon too. Definetly if new identical Canon lens would come out, the price would be even higher.
And Mescalamba - Pros do have faster and much more expensive glas :)
Sigma - thanks for this, but please give us some renewed Wide Angle Primes for FF too :)

Derma pro: does this means the 5D mark III can accept lenses which the 6D can't accept?
Does what mean? 6D should accept all the same lenses as 5D, 1D, etc.
Still no news about review :(
It's pretty confused that back to 2010 Photokina, Sigma announced first version of this lens (and still being sold at $3K in US). Now Sigma announced second version in 2012 Photokina but with virtually (or actually)the same name without using version II. Heard some problems in the first version and hope this version is much improved in both QC and IQ and wait and see if its IQ and AF speed can compete to Canon and Nikon 300/2.8 IS/VR.
The same with 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC MACRO OS HSM.I own the first version, and in future it will get more and more confusing when you will search for one of the versions but will be misdirected to another :(Why they just didn't add to the naming this A/C/S or number II?
nekrosoft13: The 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM will be available for the street price of $3,599. :(
Streetprice from Sigmas mouth rarely is the same as streetprice on the street :)Usualy in real life Sigma lenses are cheaper.
DPR - when could be the full review of this camera ready in your site?I am really looking forward for your thoughts about it :)
It would be 6D, but probably in next year's poll :)
zkool5: Just got this camera yesterday. It exceeded all my expectations. Coming from the 7D, the 6D's AF accuracy is JAWDROPPING, unlike the former with its AF issues even with micro-AF adjustment (useless). I love the new picture review functionalities, extremely versatile and customizable.
Not to mention the low-light image quality and focussing ability (which is most important of all) - utterly blew my mind away. The low-light focussing ability alone is much better than my old 7D and 5D2.
mohdya, flip screen is my main concern to upgrade from 60D too.But for me much of the flip screen job can do this new Canon phone app, which provides Live view on your Android or iOS phone via 6D's wireless.Of course it won't help in all cases, but sometimes it will be quite usefull.
Peter K Burian: The review suggests that most EOS owners have only the smaller EF-S lenses so the cost of switching to Nikon would not be excessively high. BUT ... in fact, the telephoto lenses and zooms owned by most photo enthusiasts are EF, not EF-S. e.g. EF 70-300mm, etc.
So, anyone who owns an EOS system, and is not primarily shooting ultra wide images, probably already owns a couple of EF lenses. For those folks, the cost of switching to Nikon would be high; they would need to sell not only their EF-S lenses but also the EF lenses that would work perfectly on the EOS 6D.
And then they would need to buy Nikon lenses at a much higher price than what they got for the used Canon lenses.
I agree. And not only telephoto, but all primes usualy are EF too, so don't forgt to sell al of them too ;)
Half of all comments with unnecessary flame :(There will always be people who need such lenses, becase they won't be changing them during theyr travels or events.The quality such a lens + low to mid ragnge body provides, is totally ok for purposes, they will be using the pictures later, and there's no need to tell them something else.
