nikon executives just need to read dpreview, no need spending on expensive inaccurate studies. hope they are reading this. muahahahaha
mpgxsvcd: Serious Question. How many of you shoot Medium Format or would switch to Medium Format if the right camera body was produced?
go with x100s now ....from SLR
Yawnnnn..... will canon follow this kind of design?
photo nuts: I am nonplussed by this statement in the preview:
"the location of the power switch behind the mode dial is far less convenient than placing it around the shutter button (as Nikon, Pentax and Sony all do). None of these are deal-breakers, but they make the 6D a bit less pleasant to use than it could be."
Anyway, based on the sentiments expressed in the preview, we can expect ~ 79 to 80% on final score. No gold or silver award whatsoever.
today in photography, ppl not just arguing about camera, but also arguing about the on off switch of the camera.. hehehe
Yikes, Now you can make your own D600E...
VivaLasVegas: Holy smokes.....a built-in wifi+GPS tagging that is accessible via cellphones. Damn this is sooo futuristic! D600 can tooo, but it'll COST you $$$$ and it's stuffing is hanging out of its body like x-mas lights......just ugly.
6D=Apple lookD600=Android look
this dude is canon paid SEO marketing staff, canon SEO kick in as the 6D is geting many no no response all over the web.
VivaLasVegas: Holy smokes......6D just smoked Nikon D4 in low light AF, -3EV vs -2EV. Oh and one more thing, 6D can be customized with tracking, acceleration and deceleration tracking AF sensitivities......D4, D800, and D600 can't!
huh? pasukan nasi bungkus foke apa canon? you must be a canon paid SEO marketing. hahahaha
goshigoo: I wonder why people would buy Nikon 1 with such a small sensor
good macro magnification.
Just wondering, mars is full of snad dust particels etc, how does this camera manage to get it's lens clean from dust and etc.
imagine a 4x4 travelling in desert, the whole car would be covered all in dust...
does in mars have strong wind also?
In full frame arena there is still a little products variation. D800 and 5DMk III is too much for me.
For me, best buy full frame DSLR is canon 5D MK II. around1700$ that's a bargain. compared to D700 still 2200$ and the price never drop.
I even considering buy a mint 5d MKI it's just 800$ (if it still there) for street hunt compared to a epic overkill 9000$ leica.
many good photographer even used worst camera to take fenomenal photos.
Sigma, did you forget to do market research? If yes, we are telling you we need an affordable FF.
StephenSPhotog: I've come to the conclusion that DPreview should not allow people comment on stories...
absolutely agree, too many kiddies brand ambassador here.
rjohnson8: The comments so far have been hilarious. Just had to register to throw in my 2c.
Seriously, you lot are the definition of what ken Rockwell calls measurebators
People here are talking about how they are going to dump all their gear because there are phone cameras with higher resolution? It's pathetic. Even if you have half the gear you claim you have, you are the same people who run a mile when anyone asks to see your portfolio.
How about all you armchair experts get off your fat ass*s and actually take some photos rather than bitching about numbers? Yes I know all about the importance of equipment when it comes to commercial photography blah blah but you would get a hell of a lot more work if you put half the energy that you spend on bitching about canon/Nikon into learning how to take a more creative shot. That's why there are kids with 3Mp camera phones who can smoke you.
many people here, consider themselves as the brand ambassador of their favorite camera. And they are well payed i think.
vFunct: Nikon wins.
Time for everyone to sell their Canon gear.
Better luck next time Canon.
omg, i think you are canon brand ambasador or a canon brand seller. I think canon pay you well.I was with canon 5D mkII and it serve me well unless the wide lense is no good, D4 is for photojournalist usage. i buy camera that suit my need. and don't call me fanbois please.
it's not about fan boy bro, 36 mpix is for pro bro, you'll sell more money with high res. and ability to get more details. if you shoot for FB you are right, stick with canon or buy a pocket. if you shoot for istock photo get a nikon D800.
canon6188: This is the PERFECT camera ! Nikon users who consider upgrade to D800 shall weep for another 3 years. Huge upgrade in term of auto focus and ISO plus 6 FPS, who needs 36MP noise ridden, computer busting (huge file size) camera of Nikon ...
I am getting one soon, give me .......QUICK ....
And canon user stuck with the unfriendly UI forever.
tipit08: Just can't understand why they would announce a camera as important as this one... 5 months ahead of time ???
so people that planning to switch to nikon will reconsider.
