awesome pictures up to iso 3200!!!!
you do not need a flash unless you want it to fill in.
focus tack sharp, also with lateral focus points. 4.5 fps are more than enough for a pro-sumer,
wifi very, very useful!!
canon-ista since ever!!!

Pretty amazing how so many absolutely trashed the camera as worthless when it first came out.
I have had my 6D for about 2 months now. I remember being underwhelmed with the specs when it was first announced. I then thought about the specs and realised it was almost the perfect camera for me. I only use the centre focus point, SD cards are cheap and it is an affordable entry into full frame for me.
So far it has not disappointed. It has taken a little to get used to the ergonomics coming from shooting the xxD range for years and the 7D.
It is now my main Portrait and Wedding camera.
I love mine. It is a great landscape and astrophotography camera. I keep my 60D for birds and macro. I never thought that the 6D was "under-spec'd", it merely had relatively simple entry level options - great for me, I didn't need anything fancy, just a nice sensor.
One of the few negative points is the slow SD interface, because it isn't possible to take full HD video in RAW with Magic Lantern.
I'd say awsome pictures to ISO 12,800. Put a fast lens on it, and the 6D essentially renders ISO concerns obsolete.
Last night I went to my daughter school xmas "show", a very low light situation, 130 pictures taken, only 5 out of focus and beautiful pictures with ISO@3200 . I will give to the school for free to make parents happy. with my old 50D I have never had, in the same place, so many good pictures.
It is worth every penny I spent for my 6D.
