6D is proof that Canon has lost it...

I really have to agree with you on...

...most of this. Especially everything related to flash or lack thereof. This is really a head scratcher. Even the Rebels have 1/200 sync. And APS-C users are going to balk at paying north of $200 for an IR transmitter. But on the other hand, Canon could have been the first FF launched in the $1,500 market. I think then, the response would have been more of: "You can't have everything at that price."

No excuses. The 6d is simply poorly conceived.

It's like they had 2 teams arguing about who their target market was and in the end they made a compromise that made neither side happy.

It's not competitive as an amateur-entry level FF camera. The bone that this group received was the wifi and the eos android/iphone app. But to this market, the lack of pop-up flash, relatively low resolution and omission of the flip-out screen (one of the main selling points of the 60D, whose body this camera shares!) make this camera unappealing.

This is not competitive as an enthusiast-semi pro camera. Having an 11 pt AF with only a single cross-type point is a ridiculous dealbreaker. 97% viewfinder coverage? Lack of a secondary memory card slot? 1/180 sync? The only bone this group got was GPS tagging which could help a narrow niche of landscape shooters...
