I don't know what Canon was thinking with the 6D, at least at the price point (It should be $1499 or so).

They were thinking to get $2,100 from the early adopters and only then reduce to $1,500. It is more profitable and flexible than starting from $1,500. It also creates a better image as if 6D us at at same level and competes with D600. Once the rice settles down, 6D will outsell D600 by far. Not because it is better, but because in this market segment (the cheapest FF), price is more important than specs. Meanwhile D600 will stay at $2,000 for a while, as Nikon's margin is thinner due to a third party sensor, more complex AF, etc.
