[Rumor] Canon EOS 6D Entry-Level Full Frame DSLR Coming This Week? (Update)

Update: I got a similar rumor: Canon should announce a “not entry-level or amateur” DSLR “with a big sensor” in the upcoming week. No mention of the name “6D” nor if it is full frame or not. We can only wait to see.

That’s what a rumour reported by CR is suggesting. The murmured specs:

  • 22mp (Same sensor as 5D2)
  • 4.5 fps
  • Touchscreen
  • Same AF system as 7D
  • Lower build quality than the 5D Mark III

I am somewhat puzzled by the “same sensor as 5D2” part. It sounds weird to me that Canon will release a new DSLR with a 3 years old sensor.

    same sensor as 5D Mk3 !!!

    as a canon guy you should know that the 5D MK2 sensor has only 21 MP…..

    ” am somewhat puzzled by the “same sensor as 5D2″ part. It sounds weird to me that Canon will release a new DSLR with a 3 years old sensor.”

    Sensor in 5D2 is 4 t/o. For 3 y/o sensor, see T4i and EOS M.

      And, when will it arrive?

  • It will probably be shown at Photokina (this month) or Photoplus Expo (next month). May be available before holidays.
