Tele reach

I am reasonably sure the target audience for the camera was the users of SD based APS-C cameras like all the Rebels and the 60D. I kind of lump the 6D in as a FF 60D. My only real use for a FF body would be for WA shooting as I won't switch over my telephoto use for a FF camera considering the crop factor advantage I get from the 60D.

The crop factor has no telephoto reach advantage. The longer telephoto reach is due to smaller pixels. Crop and FF sensors with the same pixel size have the same telephoto reach. Only the crop sensor crops more of the image than the FF sensor. Out of Nikon/Canon, D5200/D3200 have the longest tele reach, 7D/60D come in second. Out of current models, D800 takes the third place, if I'm not mistaken.
