Canon 6D is Arriving – With Price Reductions

Shortly after releasing the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (and the Canon EOS-1DX and assorted other goodies), Canon announced a forthcoming less-expensive full-frame DSLR, the EOS 6D, a 20+ MP with a range of attractive features and a price barely above $2000. Right now site-sponsor B&H is offering a $200 “instant savings” on the Canon EOS 6D Digital Camera with Canon 24-105mm f/4.0L IS Lens bundle that lowers the cost of the lens and camera to only $2,699. The product is also eligible for the B&H “2% reward” – read more about that at the link.

Where does the 6D fit into the Canon eco-system? I think that for many people looking for a first full-frame body, and for many whose primary consideration is purely image quality, the 6D is going to hit the sweet spot. A 20 MP full frame image, assuming you shoot with skill and understand how to post-process, can produce an outstanding print in sizes much larger than the typical user will ever produce. There is every reason to think that the image quality produced by this camera will be essentially indistinguishable from that produced by the fine Canon EOS 5D Mark III. I have not used the camera, but from many reports I have read from those who have had their hands on a copy, it sounds like it will be a fine performer.

‘Black Friday” Canon “double instant rebate” deals at B&H

(Update 11/25/11: Please take a look at the “deals” page on this web site for updates. B&H is sending me emails about other deals – including Adobe Lightroom for only $89.95 and a “$200 off” price on the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens.)

Right on the heels of the previous “instant savings” promotion and as part of the seasonal Black Friday sales, site sponsor B&H has announced Canon Double Rebates on the EOS 60DEOS 7D, and EOS 5D Mark II cameras and a wide range of lenses and electronic flashes when purchased as a package. Lenses include many L primes and zooms, speciality lenses such as macro and tilt/shift models, most of the better EFS lenses, and a few excellent non-L lenses. It looks like essentially all of the major Speedlite models are included. This extended Black Friday deal only lasts a short time – prices expire on Sunday, November 27 at 3:00 a.m. EST.

If you are considering a body and lens, these are some of the best prices you are likely to see. Some of the discounts are significant enough that you might even want to get that body/lens that you were just thinking about… To see the details of this promotion at B&H, follow this link.
