I bought my 6D (W) from Hong Kong...it's WiFi only, no GPS for a small discount ($50)

If I could add GPS to one of my cameras for $50, I'd jump on it.

I post on Panaramio, so I would love to have GPS embedded, but I really hate dead batteries. Getting used to a dinky battery after the 1DS-mk3 will be a big shock anyway.

I would consider an add on wi-fi remote and gps that ran on its own battery. Still considering a 5d-mk3, got one coming on loan tomorrow for try out. If it is not a lot better than my 1DS-mk3 at long exposure high iso, I will probably just get a 6D. But if it is good in that regard, I could see getting a wifi attachment.

What I see when I open the image and view it at 100% is very important to my overall attitude toward a final print. When I look at the print I know what’s there and what I had to do to get there. For me, good enough does not work.

I carry extra batteries as a matter of course but have never needed to change in the field.
