Yes what you say is very true but common 6D with 9 focus points? from what I read it is a very good camera but they should of put more features in it.

Ah yes, but the 6D has a very special centre focus point. The way an AF unit works, they couldn't have given that sensitivity had they had lots of points and lots of cross points, because the field lenses would have become very small and thus very slow. So, it's not as though they have taken focus points away and given you nothing back. What they have done is tried to optimise the camera for an intended application. I think it's a brave move, because if you just count focus points the camera looks deficient against its competition, but if you are interested in low light AF, it is the best you can get.
