Now released, news article and preview. I'd go with Andy Westlake's conclusion

Overall, though, it's difficult to shake the feeling that the EOS 6D simply lacks the 'wow' factor of its main rival. Whereas Nikon seems to have taken the approach of taking away as little as possible from D800 when creating the D600, Canon appears almost to have gone the other way, removing as much as it thinks it can get away with at the price. The result is the kind of conservative, slightly unimaginative design that's become the company's hallmark. It's still bound to be a very good camera, of course; just perhaps not quite as good as it could be.

The thing Andy raises that hadn't struck me is the issue of EF-S lenses, of course the 6D won't take them, so upgraders from APS-C are likely to have to change lenses anyway, in which case they might as well look at the D600.

I look at DPR the same way I look at Stereophile or other magazines. These guys tend to pull their punches when reviewing gear they take advert money for. Taken in that context this is a pretty scathing comment – and I agree, from the looks of things, quite well deserved.
