Anyone gone from Nikon D90 to Canon 6D?

Before everyone jumps up and say that it doesn't make sense to switch brand I need to explain I have two lenses (for historical reasons) for Canon and 3 for Nikon.

I have Nikon D90, 18-105, 70-300 and prime 35mm 1.8 while my Canon equipment is 28-135 and 50mm 1.4.

So my decision is that at some point I need to sell and focus on one brand.

Anyone moved from D90 to the 6D? I would have pickewd up the D600 but I am not interested in wet cleaing my sensor so that one is out. If you read the Nikon Forum you will will know what I mean.

It would either be staying with Nikon and maybe move to D7100 if that one does not have any QC issues or moving back to Canon, 6D. The one thing I miss on Canon is the lack of built in flash for fill in flash shots.

Canon on the other hand has built in GPS which means no extra dongle to keep track of.

Very interested in hearing anyone with experiences in moving this way.

My type of shooting is:L

Landscapes and travel

Low light

Taking family/kid pictures, (my 7 year old and the sports he plays)

Flowers (the least amount of shots)
