hud80: The best review is from the real users. Yesterday I have looked for the Amazon.com. d600 has 4 star rating on average, and all 1 to 3 stars which is 70 reviews out of 223 (31%) complains about horrible dust and oil issues. As already noted here, it is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS that DPR does not take that into account, this must be a very-very serious concern!
On the other hand, Canon 6d has only 6 out of 58 2-3 stars rating (none of 1) and average of 4.5. None of the users with 2-3 rating report any technical problems, just complaining about setting up wi-fi (RTFM!), of course comparing to d600, etc.

Yep, I also did some research, and there are really almost no bad reviews from real-world users. Everybody seems very happy with the camera.

hud80: As for me, I chose 6d because d600 grip is absolutely horrible, IMO, and 5dm3 is to big for my hands, while I do not want to handle 36-40mb files from d800. I was changing the complete system (pentax + 5 lenses and flash, very slow AF) and was open-minded for everything. After 5 minute comparison in the shop I understood that this horrible grip does not worth additional features that I barely will use. I am used with mostly only central AF point without tracking. Although, I am now also playing with side-points, I want them to be more on the edges, like d300 from what I have seen. d600 has most distant points identical to 6d. I do not need that 3x additional points in between, so from this point of view cameras are on par.

Probably the one thing I did not say explicitly about 6d grip: it is perfect for me, the overall ergonomics is also much better that d600. If it has only slightly better handling than d600, I'll probably reconsider my decision. But with my hands, which are M-L male european hand size (I think smaller than average), it fits just perfectly with all buttons right there, where they should. I came from Pentax, which also has good ergo.

The built-in flash is absolute no way for me, I am always using external one. I do not use video, I do not need swivel screen, I hate sports, dogs and birds ))). I will probably miss 1/8000, but I can live without it and neither 6d or d600 has it. In overall, 6d is just a great pure camera without any flaws for me. It cost me 200 euros more, but I think I will spend the same amount of money for sending d600 forth and back for cleaning the sensor (I am not shooting too much, and probably will not pass 3000 mark after the warranty will end).
