I'm just putting this out there in case anyone is looking around for a 6D sale. I found a great price and called the seller in New Jersey, but after much discussion with him I found out the 6D he was selling did not come with wi-fi or GPS. Also it had a limited warranty that was not from Canon, which I expected. After reading many ads for the 6D on various seller websites I found that Canon does offer the camera without wi-f-i and GPS...they are for overseas markets, but find their way here through import resellers. So, if you are in the market, please beware of what you are buying. I believe the model labeled 6D (WG) body has the wi-fi and GPS. Hope this helps someone avoid buying the wrong product.
You're never lost, because no matter where you go...there you are

the non wifi / gps model is only available in markets where canon cannot sell/distribute gps/wifi tech for a variety of reasons .. is this a reputable seller? what's their name? this sounds like more the bait and switch and upselling scam that some of the disreputable sellers do.

I placed a link to their website a bit earlier in this thread...Ryther Camera in New jersey.  If you use their search box and type in 6D you will see the 6D without the GPS and WiFi...to see the US version you have to search 6D USA. Then you have to really read the descriprions to see the differences. That's where I got mislead...typed in 6D not knowing any better!
