I'm having kinda dejavu. With 5D2, they told us the AF from 50D was "very big" and couldn't fit in that smallish 5D2 body, so no crosses on periphery.

Now on 6D they tell us that the -3EV cross is so big that we get no crosses on periphery.

I say, WTF? Bring on the picture of the AF sensor!

I'm certainly no expert on the subject but my guess would be that the lack of cross sensors had everything to do with money $$ and little to do with physical dementions but as I said I'm no expert on the subject.
