Could the Rumored 6D Become Canon's Cheapest Full Frame DSLR?S

DigicamInfo says this is the Canon 6D. And if the specs the site obtained are correct, it will be a full frame beast of a camera, but with a price tag that makes it a bit more attainable for mere mortals. The rumored DSLR is believed to have a 20.2-megapixel sensor, DIGIC 5+ CPU, auto ISO range of 100-25600 (max 50-102400), 11-point autofocus, GPS, wi-fi, and a 3-inch LCD in a body the size of an APS-C equipped camera. Whoa.

The 7D has long been a favorite among the video crazy crowd because it had all the same video functionality as the 5D MK II. But the lack of a full frame sensor kept it from being as lustworthy for true photo nerds. Now with a full-frame sensor, this could be not only a competitor to the Nikon D600, but maybe even an acceptable alternative to the 5D MKIII for the majority of those interested. Rumor has the camera pegged to arrive in Japan in December for ~$2500, but PetaPixel thinks it could be a bit cheaper when it arrives in the US. [DigicamInfo via PetaPixel]
