Just read the update on the 6D here on Dpreview.

Interesting comment in the summary:

Overall, though, it's difficult to shake the feeling that the EOS 6D somewhat lacks the 'wow' factor of its main rival.

Whilst I have no experience of the 6D, I (imho) fully confirm the "Wow" factor of the 600.

One of the features that DPR plays down is the dual card slot. I find this really good on the 600 as I can shoot raw on one and jpg on the other and feel confident at least one set will survive any card disaster.

OTOH the 6D has interchangeable focusing screens, built in GPS and Wi-Fi. I'd find the first two things very useful - and I wish they were on the D600 (others probably couldn't care less) - but the dual-card slots and built in flash of the D600 are important to me too. You're very lucky if you find a camera that precisely fits your needs, otherwise you have to make do with the closest thing available.
