Just as Nikon announced their entry-level full frame camera, the D600, a few days ago, Canon has also entered into the fray with their 6D. Built upon what is essentially an enlarged 60D design, the 6D houses a 20.2 megapixel full-frame sensor, an 11-point autofocus system rated to a remarkable -3 EV using the center point, built-in wireless and a GPS tracker. The camera isn't particularly speedy at only 4.5 fps, and don't expect great tracking from the autofocus, but we like where Canon has gone with this model. They have cut a few corners here that might turn off some users: there's no built-in flash (ala 5D), the viewfinder isn't 100%, and there's just one SD card slot, but these are relatively minor issues for most. It's about time manufacturers started putting useful features like GPS and WiFi into higher-end models. The 6D will hit in December with an asking price of $2,099 body only or $2,899 with the 24-105mm lens.
