I do not own the 6D yet (so my state-
ment may be somewhat theoretical).

But as I do a lot of work with the cam-
era on a tripod, at times above my head,
at others below my belly button (and as
the 6D lacks the—IMO most convenient—
swivel-screen I have used for that on the
60D in all such occasions), I'm convinced
I *shall* appreciate the wifi for precise
framing with a smart-phone in most of
those instances.

I have used my Android phone twice, but the setup time to turn on wifi and connect my phone is more of a nuisance to me than not. I agree with db - a swivel/articulating LCD on back is great. I have one on my NEX 5N and it's been more convenient for me when shooting flowers and stuff near the ground instead of needing to lay down to use my 6D's LCD screen or VF. I suppose if I am taking my time and have a a tripod with me then I'd use wifi, but most of the time I am coming onto a scene and just want to shoot.
