Last week’s announcement of the Nikon D600 DSLR, which is anticipated as a highly affordable entry-level full frame DSLR camera ($2,100), had DSLR users everywhere excited that a full frame sensor camera could be purchased at that price. Well, today Canon USA announced an even CHEAPER full frame DSLR camera on the horizon. Yes, that’s right, I said CHEAPER. As I predicted in my last blog, this is most certainly the start of a full frame camera war. Canon has just announced it’s full frame EOS 6D, starting at $2,099.
