Canon 6D Pre-Order Page Makes Brief Appearance, Confirms Price and Specs

Canon will reportedly launch its new entry-level full frame DSLR, the Canon 6D, along with a bevy of other digital cameras tomorrow at Photokina 2012. We saw a semi-complete spec list and a couple photos leak out earlier this week, but people have expressed doubt as to the leak’s reliability and authenticity. If you had any doubts that the camera is in fact coming, check out the above screenshot. It’s a pre-order page that appeared briefly today on Adorama.

Although it was quickly taken down, we see two pretty big facts in that single product listing: a confirmation of the camera’s $2099 price tag and 20.2 megapixel full frame sensor. It’s possible that Adorama accidentally published a dummy page ahead of the announcement, but we’re guessing this was an actual leak rather than a silly mistake.

If the camera does show up tomorrow with the previously rumored specs, then Canon is going in a pretty interesting direction with this camera. It won’t be the cheapest full frame Canon on the market, since the 5D Mark II is still being produced and sold with a price tag of under $2,000, so it’ll have to offer something that hasn’t been revealed yet if it really wants to compete as an affordable full frame camera.

Granted, the camera would be Canon’s cheapest full frame DSLR if you only look at the latest camera models. The 5D Mark II was officially succeeded by the $3,500 5D Mark III… it just hasn’t been discontinued yet.
