Nikon D6: First look

The D6 features the same unusual eyecup attachment method as the D5, with the cup screwed into a removable panel, which releases via a pair of catches to the lower left and right of the finder. This view shows off the D6's large upper status LCD, which displays key exposure settings, battery level, etc.

It remains to be seen what kind of autofocus features the D6 will offer, but we still consider the D5 to be a gold standard for DSLRs, so any improvement on its excellent 153-point system will just make a great system even better. What we really want are improvements to live view autofocus, to bring the D6 more in line with what we've seen from the Z6 and Z7 (and now the D780). We'll have to wait a while longer to see whether our wishes are fulfilled.
