Are 6D users happy with their camera?

I am a Canon APS-C user - I presently have a 60D and a 100D with some EF-S zooms plus a few EF lenses (35mm f2 non-IS, 50mm f1.4, 70-200 f4 IS). I'm about to retire and have been promising myself that 'last camera' as a retirement present, and in the Canon world that looks the 6D. I don't think the 5DIII offers me anything that the 6D doesn't for the type of photography I do - travel, landscape, 'general'. I don't do sports or wildlife so don't need a camera that majors in fast frame rates or big buffers. Nor do I do video.

However - although I know it's silly, I can't help looking over the fence at Nikon-land. The D610 and D750 look, on paper, to be better cameras than the 6D (or even the 5DIII), and let's not even mention the D810. I need some positive messages about the 6D. Let me feel the love!

(I'm in the UK, btw.)
