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.

A fullframe sensor deserves a proper HG lens. The 24-70 II is what you need in any case to make the most out of such a sensor. A bad lens will make the best cam look awful. Put a 28-105 on a 1D-X and the images will be poor.

Ok, Canon release bad sample images of the 5D III too. Upgraders can do so too ...

Canon EOS 5D II (6D) | EF 24-105L IS USM | EF 70-200L IS II USM | Extender 1.4x III | Speedlite 270EX

Olympus E-5 | ZD 7-14 | ZD 12-60 SWD | ZD 50-200 SWD | ZD 150 F2 | ZD 50 Macro | EC-14

That assumes people have the spare cash available to swap all their lenses when they buy the camera.

The question is how many DX lenses are to upgrade after all? For most people it will be a wide-angle zoom and a standard zoom. DX primes are still far and few between and most tele zooms stayed full-frame.
