Rumors from Canon, in response to the Nikon D600 rumors of new DSLR full frame for the Entry Level dated 23rd September 2011

"One of the recent rumors has been the coming of a new full frame EOS body added to the lineup. It would be in the $2000 range. It would see a drop in megapixels from the 21 of the 5D Mark II and be solely designed for ISO performance. To meet the price point, I’d expect a modified 9 point AF (more crosstype sensors).

If the 5D3 moves up the latter in performance and price, a $2000 full frame camera at launch would be an industry first and a massive seller. Canon was the first company to break the $1000 price barrier with a DSLR, no reason they can’t do it again." ~ Canon Rumors
With all the unconfirmed specs being posted, yet all will be revealed on the 17th September 2012. Based on the latest spec being announce by Canon Rumors we all have to wait for the hand on review. judging from the spec itself there is a huge difference between the Nikon D600 as compared to the Canon 6D.
