    102.400 dot screen ????!!!
    Mistake or very cheap dslr !

  • physica

    Oh GOD………… I need to throw out tonnes of my CF card if I wish to go for EOS 6…. I just got only 1 Piece of SD card….

  • Gabriel

    It’s Dpreview specs, not always accurate. But if the price is really 2099$ and the specs true, it’s a “game changer” :)

    • KFU

      game changer? for 2099$…

      you really have no clue at all… are you?

      0,71x magnification 97% viefwinder…what a crap.
      a 20 MP sensor when others have at least 24 MP.

      i have a A2 printer and i can need every bit of extra resolution when i want to crop.

      the D600 looks better every day.

      • JJ

        Totally agree with KFU’s comments. Feel discouragement regarding those rumored spec.

        If it was really ture, I guess many C users may seriously consider D600 as their next choice rather than 6D.

  • If the spec list is real then the pic is a fake.

  • Tanglefoot

    The image is fake. If you look closely you can faintly see a 7 behind the 6.

  • Admin

    The image is a fake and has been removed. the 6d does not have flash.
