Fluorite: This camera seems to be in the same spirit as the old Pentax K1000. In other words, a fantastic student camera which doesn't confuse with an oversupply of features.
Having said that, I can easily imagine myself using the 6D, even though I already own a 1DIV and 5DIII. The 6D is just a pure photography tool without feeling the need for chrome trimmings, fat tyres and 20" wheels.
From a marketing perspective, it's probably not a winner, but from a photography perspective (specifically portraiture, wedding and landscape), do you really need that much more?

Yes, good points there T3. This might sound crazy, but I'm wondering if I really need a 1DIV for weddings? 6D is lighter, full frame, bigger pixels, probably better DR, similar control interface to my 5DIII. Some things for me to think about.

People here are talking about a lack of features ... I think wedding photographers will love the -3EV focussing ... studio photographers will love built in WiFi ... wedding photographers don't want 24mp because it's too time-consuming to process (time = money). Some people will need some of the missing features, I agree. Canon has decided to position this camera as a price leader rather than feature winner, so expect this camera to be selling a lot cheaper than similar Nikon and Sony models in around six months. I estimate that it will be selling at $1600 in a year or two.

Thought this would be useful for those who have the wrong impression of Christian and his work.
