Canon EOS 6D

The full-frame war between Canon and Nikon has been raging at the higher-end of the DSLR market for a while now (and Sony has just jumped back into the fray as well.) Now, there’s a new battle being fought at the $2,100 price point between Nikon’s D600 and the freshly-announced Canon EOS 6D.

The new sensor is a 20.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS paired with a Digic 5+ image processor. Not quite as many megapixels as the venerable 5D Mark II, but that newer processor should make a difference, and the maximum native ISO has been pushed to 25,600. If you’re willing to go into expansion mode, you can get all the way to 102,400.

The AF system has just 11-points with one high-precision cross-type in the center. That’s obviously not nearly as robust as what you’ll find in the 5D Mark III, but that’s to be expected. Hopefully, though, it’ll offer some improvements over the 5D Mark II’s performance.

Standout Spec: That 20.2-megapixel full-frame sensor in a $2,100 body
