Re: Who is the 6D targetted at?

I think you're right. The lens issue may be a shocker to upgraders from crop bodies. That's why I'm also not sure who this is marketed at. The 6D has all these consumer features and a lower price point, but there's a lack of affordable FF lenses to go with it, especially zooms.

The 60D is a better body, isn't it? Canon look a bit lost with this one, from a Nikon shooter. The 5D3 and the 1Dx were great launches, with very clear markets. This camera will only sell at 1,500, at most. When people check the prices of lenses they need to get, forget it. They should have just used the 7D body and put an FF sensor in there, like Nikon did with D7000 to D600. That they could have chargesd something like 2,300 (difference from 7D's MSRP to 2300 would be exactly same as from D7000's to D600), and they would still sell a lot of them, to people that don't need a 5D3.
