The Canon 6D just dropped in price by another $100, bringing the retail price down to $1699. Additionally, Canon is offering a $300 instant rebate on the 6D, which brings it down $1399 right now. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

Amid the recent announcements of Canon’s new point and shoot cameras in early January, I missed that Canon also made the 6D available in a kit with the new-ish EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. The new kit runs $2199 and should be available in early February. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
This new kit option makes a lot of sense and I think most of us saw this one coming when Canon announced the lower-tier 24-105mm STM lens earlier in 2014. I’m not sure why Canon didn’t start offering it from day one. Perhaps they wanted to clear out some stock with the 24-105mm L kit lens before packaging the new lens with it.
The 6D remains available with the pricier 24-105mm f/4L lens as well for $2399. And that kit is actually on sale through January 31 for $2099 after a $300 mail-in rebate.
The Canon 6D has received a firmware update to version 1.1.6, which includes the following fixes:
- Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera may not first use the center AF point to focus, when the AF point selection is set to automatic in AI Servo AF mode.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which focus cannot be finely adjusted with specific lenses when shooting remotely with EOS Utility software.
- Corrects some Ukrainian language displayed on the menu for ISO Setting.
