Axel Poe: Oh thanks for this link and the info!

But if this 6D has the same weather sealing as the 5D3, why does Canon state is "splash"?

I'm not sure either..may be they are playing cautious, the 6D has a polycarbonate top plate and it could be more vulnerable to elements than full magnesium alloy of 5d M3...bottom line don't get the camera dripping wet in rain..and this is true for even 1dx..

Axel Poe: I will hug the person that answers this question! Does this camera have weather sealing? And if so, how good is it? As good as the 7D? Or better? Thanks!

one of the members had posted a link to a canon website claiming 6d has the equivalent weather sealing as 5d mark 3. http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/tech/report/2012/10/

its under the the category of "Great Reliability"
the actual words are "The EOS 6D passed 100,000 cycles in shutter durability tests. Dust and drip proofing protection around control buttons and along outer cover seams has been upgraded from the EOS 5D Mark II and is equivalent to the protection on the EOS 5D Mark III"

DPReview007: 1. Is the 6D better in low light than the D600 Nikon?

2. How much better?

3. Is it better only in JPEG or also in RAW?

4. If it is better, why does DxO Mark have a much higher ISO rating on the D600 (all high end Nikons)

5. (bonus question to DPReview,and for the record, I love you guys) What's the ETA of the full review please?

Thanks!

the reason DXO mark gives a better score to d600 because they take the RAW file at the sensor level, not after its processed.

peevee1: Strange camera. On the one hand, it is clearly aimed at a non-professional - GPS, Scene modes, light weight, simplistic AF system... On the other it drops articulated screen and built-in flash... what's Canon's problem?

I'm new to this forum and I want to speak my mind about the 6d. Autofocus, sure they could have done better but then it will be stepping on 5d mark 3 sales so they had to limit it but remember when 5d mark 2 released...it had only 9 points with 1 cross type, and it was even more costly..it made a lot of amazing pictures and became one of the first choices for pros... 6d don't have a tilt screen because it will be one more thing that can break up and make weather sealing fail. none of the canon current full frame DSLR has a built in flash so I think its a design philosophy and not a let down. I don't think any pro who use a 5d mark 3 or 1dx would cry for a built in flash. even though 6d takes a 60D approach in design it is never a rebel system or XXD series. Full frame cameras is where you have to start thinking seriously about your images before you shoot them...creating photographs is not entirely about autofocus points or gunning down 15 fps..automation can't replace creativity..
