IMO Canon prices will drop faster in this round since Nikon's offerings are competitive. If Canon finally brings out a new family of sensors based on better production technology, then they may dominate the next round, and their prices will hold firm while Nikon is forced to drop theirs.

I don't know how they're going to position it, since the 7D2 will have to bring *something* to the party. There's no way Canon will release it with the same 18MP sensor (well they might, but that would suck). Assuming they release it with something comparable to the Sony sensors, then I can see it selling for $2k for sports/bird shooters. They'd want the reach of a crop anyway, and the higher FPS, better AF, weather-sealing etc. would be necessary for them, since the next step up would be the 5D3. There's always that nagging rumor that Canon might bring back APS-H but I doubt it. I guess we'll see when the 7D2 comes out. They could price it exactly the same at the 6D, where with the 6D you get a decent studio camera, and with the 7D you get a sports camera but sacrifice the sensor.

5D Mk II was $2699 upon release in September 2008. It didn't drop below $2300 until 4 years later (when the 6D showed up to replace that price point).
They inflate prices on the early adopters then they settle until the successor is released. It's always been that way.

And don't forget $70 in fees if selling in eBay. Or 100 offers for used speakers and possibly getting stabbed on Craigslist.

The 6D destroys the MKII in almost everything, especially focal points and low light.
It's even better than a 5D MKIII in some situations, although the 5D is still better in others. The fact that a $1800 camera can beat a $3000 camera in some situations is pretty amazing to me.
Add in the gadgets like the wifi and gps, and you've got a winner for someone like myself. I couldn't be happier with my new 6D.
In the end, 6D or 5D or whatever won't matter if you're shooting through some shitty glass, which is what most people end up doing anyways.

|emmarosemc||I got it last time there was a deal have since used it for the U20 hockey world championships in serbia with a non hockey lens (100mm macro) and I really cant complain. The AF kept up, some had completely missed focus but its hockey... I am definitely impressed with this one. Coming from a 5d classic its insane how much you can push the settings and still get results|

Just look at 5D3 when it came out around March 2012, original price was $3500, now it's below $3000, so I guess 6D will be much lower in a year.

5d2's prices are already down. if i could sell my 5d2 for 1600 i would, and get a 6d for 1600

The problem is that you have one really good AF point, and that's it. 7D has 19 of them. What are you going to do when you don't want your subject in the center of the frame?
