FEC can be assigned to the SET button

Also, although different from the 5DII, the zoom button is actually better once you get used to it, in that you can set it to go straight to 10x magnification, rather than keep pressing the zoom button.

Thanks for the feedback Nigel - this is good to know.

While in the camera store I was looking to see if I could assign FEC to a button but didn't find the option; it's really great news to hear that you can. (Although I take it you still can't use the top LCD or viewfinder to see what adjustment your making to FEC?) Anyway, I'll be grateful that you can get there with one button push - thanks for that.

Good to hear that there's a benefit to the Zoom button. I did spend 20 minutes with the 6D to take some sample shots with my 24-70 F2.8 but was not finding the interface changes beneficial. Maybe the button changes just aren't intuitive as they could be.

You have definitely made me feel better about my impending doom, er I mean purchase
