This is the lightest ever DSLR FF setup with IS

Will be very tempting for walk about if you need the features that the 6D provides.

IS is a real bonus and GPS and wifi are just icing on the cake

Looking forward to the reviews ...

Try the Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS, it's 260g,

or the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM, it's 280g.

Or if you really want lighter weight, do without the IS, the 40mm f/2.8 pancake is only 130g...

the 24mm and 28mm didn't get great reviews (at least what I read)

also f2 is a whole nother stop!

My first impressions using the 24mm f/2.8 IS are very good (as was the-digital-picture's review).  It also focuses very close, so you can get some cool perspectives.  If only they could bring out some f/1.4 lenses with IS now...!
