6D in stock in UK

I just had an email from Warehouse Express (aka Wex) who evidently now have stock of the 6D. Their store is only about 10 miles away so I may pop in & have a look. According to their webpage they have stock for delivery tomorrow (their website is accurate as I know that the staff in the store use the same pages to check that they have stock).

Looks like B&H have them too (body only, the package with the lens will be available in December). Would love to see a review of this (especially with regards to moire and rolling shutter issues).

Moire / aliasing was an issue it seems; the video is not as good as the 5Dmk3. This was done with a preproduction 6D, so maybe there might have been an improvement since then?

Re: 6D in stock in UK

Manuals are now up on Canon websites:

EOS 6D

I had a look at the wi-fi manual; you can definitely remote view and control the camera from a smartphone (or iPad). Very interesting as an alternative to using an external monitor for framing etc.

It's the same functionality as using the mega-expensive WFT widget except it is conveniently built into the camera.

Re: 6D in stock in UK

I'll stick to the 5D Mark II, for both stills and video.
