Indeed, it is the 100% zoom button both the 6D and 5D Mark III that are tempting me from Nikon. The D600 does not have this facility and you have to keep pressing back and forth.

I'd be interested to hear if people find the 6D capable as a wedding camera. I suspect the answer is no, especially without the security of double card slots. Having just attempted a wedding with a Nikon D7000 when being more used to a D300s and D700, I can tell you that the instant zoom on playback button is an essential IME.

I've seen many wedding photographers using the 5D & 5DII which also never had dual card slots...I'd have thought having better focusing & speed would be more useful.
