I tested out a 6D today and I would agree with you, although I'm comparing the images to a 30D not a 5D2 so they look like heaven to me.  

However, my main complaint:  the AF in servo mode.  There is only one focus point, which makes it very hard for the camera to track/focus.  I tried it today on a bald eagle, ospreys, seagulls, and even my dog.  And lost several shots b/c of it.  The burst rate seemed slow as well, and I got a 'busy' message more than a few times.

I responded in more detail on another thread, but I was wondering what your experience is with the AF and servo.  I *want* to like this camera - it's so much cheaper than the 5D3, which I believe it rivals in IQ (from what I've seen online anyway).

Thanks for any add'l info.

Sorry I never use servo. I shoot interiors for a living.
