    Just seen the email at park cameras. Not seen any full reviews, though there were sample pics on dpreview. Digital rev have in stock too so I would expect kai to post a review soon.

    I like the idea of being able to fully control the camera via your phone. it's ultimately pretty pointless, but kind of an interesting waste of technology.

    Although; I guess it may be usefull for landscape togs, or people with a camera set up away from themselves... I'm not sure, not a feature that i'd need.

    Not enough of a price difference to warrent getting one over the 5d III though...

    I'd be tempted with one to replace my 1Ds2 as my backup body and to complement my 5D3 were it not for the single card slot. I like having two slots, even in my backup camera. Other than that I'd have one like a shot, I had a play with one at Photokina, it felt very well balanced for such a small body, ideal for travel.

    I'm not normally Kai's biggest fan but it is refreshing to hear someone talking sense about the 6D and the feature set. I would be very tempted by one if I hadn't already got a 5Dmkii as I don't think there is enough to warrant the change of bodies for a 5Dmkii user.

    Yes, one of the many things I dislike about him is that he thinks he's funnier than he really is.

    I don't think he thinks he's funnier than he is. He just doesn't appear to take himself that seriously...

    I've been waiting for a smaller form full frame with built in flash from Canon but instantly dismissed the 6D when I read that the max shutter speed is 1/4000. I love shooting with wide apertures but hate messing on with ND's and 1/4000 means often being limited to f2.8 or smaller (n) Downer Dude (n) And it hasn't got a flash.

    I'm hard to please.

    The flash thing I get, but it doesn't bother me, I never use one these days.

    The 1/4000 thing? It's about $1000 difference to go from 6d to 5diii - that's a hell of an expensive ND4! ;)

    The guy doesn't take ANYTHING seriously.

    Watched a comparison review the other day and I don't know how many times he was on his phone. Not someone I will serious at all if he can't do his job properly.

    We tried the 24-105 f/4L and the AF was pretty fast and deadly accurate!! It's a nice camera to use, simple but effective!

    I was going to look at one today, but couldn't as my local camera shop only had fully sealed boxes of both the kits, I look forward to trying one out at some point. For me I reckon it would be a great camera. I want great iq and really good high iso capabilities for inside. I like the idea of the camera controlled apps to.

    Think I am going buy a 6d as I love the canon layout and decided to stick with canon was going Nikon but tried some today and hated the layout of buttons etc.

    I've just ordered mine from Panamoz (at an incredible price!) and hoping to have it for next week :)

    Key features I'm looking for as an upgrade to my original 5D are:

    1. Better LCD screen
    2. Improved high ISO performance
    3. Light weight and smaller size
    4. Better central AF point
    5. Ability to set minimum shutter speed
    6. Lens micro adjustments
    7. GPS!
    8. Wifi baby!

    Will post some pictures once it's arrived. Who else is joining me?

    Never used such high shutter speed so that dont bother me. But the quality out of this camera is BRILL I really do love it.

    It already making me want to buy a Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS MKII for it as it such a lovely sharp camera

    Thanks Andy, the camera is built well but nice and light compared to my 5D (original).

    The screen is incredible, even nicer than that of the 60D. AF seems OK under horrible lighting. I'm really struggling to get used to the image review and zoom buttons though...not a fan yet! And don't get me started on having to use Canon DPP software!

    I've run a very quick high ISO test, to demonstrate high ISO and the effect of pushing the exposure in DPP.

    All shots are processed with no luminance noise reduction and +5 chroma noise reduction. I pushed each shot by 0.5 stop and 2 stops to see whether there was banding or other issues.

    ISO 1600 + 0.5 stop

    Sounds like you're loving it so far! Thanks for the sample images - any chance of doing samples at ISO 3200, 6400 and 12800 shot with +1/3 EC and then converted with default DPP NR settings?

    Also do you have any more real-world high ISO stuff, ideally portrait?

    I'm seriously thinking about upgrading my 60D if the extra noise handling and DR makes it worthwhile!

    Thanks - and enjoy the new camera!
