Noise not visible!!!! It's the only drawback of my 5 years old 7D Mk I.....

parallaxproblem: Simply awful: hundreds of dollars for something that becomes landfill as soon as the battery is expired. Shall we also start scrapping cars when the tyres wear or brake pads need replacing?

Apple was the company that started this wasteful trend and I will never buy one of their products for exactly this reason

Me too....

Abhijith Kannankavil: Many peple are complaining here that 6D is even lower speced than a 7D. Yes. it is. In fact, the only camera a 7D owner may want to upgrade to (in canon lineup) without missing on anything is the 1D-x.

7D is their flagship APS-C. Whatever it is, it's a flagship still. Even after years after the launch, it's still attractive if you look for what you need (not what you want).

While 6D is the cheapest Full frame in canon lineup. It is an entry level model. Do not compare it with the flagship.

Only thing 6D will do better than 7D is low light pics. And the insignificant 2MP added to it.

APS-C sensor is crusial to them who are taking wildlife and sports photos and most of them use Canon 7D. So stop saying to replace it with full frame

Katie Piecrust: Hmm... does one choose a top of the line crop camera or a bottom of the line full frame? I think my preference is still going to be an updated 7D so long as they keep everything currently great about it, like the 100% viewfinder coverage. Adding that -3 EV and built in wi-fi would be a good start. I wonder if Canon will announce any other new cameras or if this is the last one for the year.

I also wonder if Canon is planning on eventually retiring the 1.6x crop factor sensor for good, perhaps only keeping it in their Rebels for a spell while the rest of their line goes FF. Certainly they can only take crop sensors so far before they have no choice but to increase the sensor area. Would certainly shake up the field, that's for sure. I suppose 1.3x crop could also be a possibility down the road, something Canon has played with before.

Yes, I have a 7D three years now and I have taken more than 45,000 photos. It's the camera of choise for anyone who like bird photography, even the professionals. The noise is a problem but you learn to live with it... I would like to have a socond, full frame, camera for landscapes, macro and portraits but 6D has the same price with 5D MkII (before 5D MkIII appears in the market). I am so disappointed ....

Katie the 1,6X sensor is crucial for them who are taking wildlife and sports photos like me. The full frame sensor at the other hand is good for landscape, portaiture and wedding photography which also I like too. So why do you ask to retire it? How long are you involving with photography?

They remind me of the famous scene from that great film 'The Wild Ones' -
Question: "What don't you like about the new Canon camera"
Answer: "What has it got?"

I am a Canon fan. I have a 7D (which replaced a 40D) and many EF and EF-S lenses. I am really dissapointed as any Canon fan. And if price is 2000-2100 E then the hope for an affordable FF is dead....

Niklas Ramstedt: If I was a canon shooter and had a 5D Mark II/III, I'd consider this as a second body for weddings and such.

Why not a second 5D Mk II? The price probably will be the same and you will not invest on SD cards.......

If the price is 2100 $ like the 5D MkII how 6D could be an "affordable" full frame camera? Every new L lens is 50% pricer from the previous edition. I am afraid that soon or later we have to switch to an other camera system....

In reply to:

jorepuusa: Lots of cameras, lots of comments about those cameras.
But the main thing is missing. The visual quality of pictures taken by dpreview staffers is bad! Pictures are sadly amateurish, composition is nonexistence and there is no story in the pics.
World leading site should have pleasing pictures of people holding cameras but it does not.
But neither do other sites. It is a saddening truth that sites writing about cameras use pictures that are of very low visual standard.
Now what does this mean?
It means that people who write these laughable comments about how wrong tests or roundups are, do not understand about pictures at all cause never are the pictures estimated in these sites. So the only thing that matters are the knobs and pixels and those have nothing to do with pictures.
Photography is really dying. This article and its comments are one proof about it.

You are absulutely right. The dpreview staff is very good in laboratory testing but they don't know photography...

straylightrun: Canon and Nikon just got owned.

Rumors say that the next Sony model will have Play Station in its specifications to exterminate the competition. The most advansed camera maker in the history, Minolta, died. Even though Sony is making the sensors for the other camera makers failed to be competitive in SLR market. Now is trying to create new market sectors but...

Richt2000: Not a fan of EVFs in m4/3 or NEX,so EVFs in DSLRs? Ha ha, Forget it.

1. Nothing can much the quality of an optical viewfinder
2. Why to buy an DSLT if it has similar dimensions and size with a DSLR?
