    New salvo in the Full-Frame camera war : EOS 6D

    Canon's answer to the D600. Interestingly, it even has a D and a 6 in it. If I didn't know better I'd say Zaibatsu is alive and well...

    Canon and Nikon always leap-frog each other. Not sure where Zaibatsu comes in though.

    Not exactly a leapfrog; more like approaching parity. Photography Blog has a nice table of the differences at http://www.photographyblog.com/news/...y_differences/. Canon has WiFi and GPS built in, Nikon has better specs.

    Canon-schmanon. I'm willing to bet the Nikon continues to outperform the Canon.
    Nikon D800.....Sony A7RII.....Nikon D3300 (IR dedicated 590nm).....Sony A6000 APS-C........NEX 5T (IR dedicated 720nm) (and too many lenses)

    I for won applaud competition, otherwise, we would still be living with 6 Meg sensors, old stuff.

    Both Nikon and Canon appear to be two separate companies but in truth they aren't really competing against one another. For instance, take a look at their lens focal lengths and apertures, 24-70mm f2.8, 70-20mm f2.8, etc., and look the price points of each lens, all within 2 to 3% of each other. In addition, look at their individual camera specs, very similar to one another with the D800 as the stand out. I don't think these similarities are mere coincident.

    But you might be right about my terminology, the word I was looking for may be Keiretsu instead of Zaibatsu. Maybe I should use English and say their both in cahoots with each other.

    Focus on what is important
    Develop from the negatives
    And if things don't work out
    Take another shot.

    What is the price? The price is the key factor here I think.

    Over at the DPReview forum the 6D is getting slammed! The first hands on review says it is lackluster too.

    I think both Canon and Nikon dumbed down both of these cameras and priced them about 300-500 to high. I bet you money mid to late next year maybe even sooner they will be cheaper.
