It seems the mistake may have arisen because Amazon merely planned to stop selling the Canon EOS 6D.

‘We understand they [Amazon] are working to rectify the issue,’ said a Canon UK spokesman.

At the time of writing, the listing (see above) still appeared on the Amazon UK site.

The erroneous listing was spotted by Canon Watch.

Announced in 2012, the Canon EOS 6D was billed as the world’s lightest DSLR with a full-frame CMOS sensor.

Boasting built-in GPS and Wi-Fi, the Canon EOS 6D features an ISO of 100-25,600, extendable to ISO 50-102,400.

The Canon EOS 6D houses an 11-point AF system, claimed to be capable of focusing down to -3EV.

Key features include a 20.2-million-pixel, full-frame sensor and Digic 5+ image processing engine.

The camera cost around £1,700 at launch.

AP’s review of the Canon EOS 6D read: ‘Full-frame DSLRs used to be priced for and targeted at professional photographers. However, such guidelines no longer strictly apply.

‘Like Nikon’s D600, the Canon EOS 6D is an “affordable” full-frame DSLR aimed squarely at the enthusiast, but which may also find popularity with professionals who want a lightweight back up model.

‘It is actually in certain key areas, such as the autofocus and metering systems, and in particular build quality, that we now find the main differences between professional and enthusiast models.

‘The EOS 6D is the smallest and lightest full-frame camera from Canon, and is partly constructed from magnesium alloy.’
