Pros: Full Frame. Image quality. Intuitive ergonomics and menu. Juicy LP-E6 battery, shared among many prosumer EOS cameras. Smaller and lighter than 5D series. WiFi, GPS. Good high ISO performance. Silent shutter

Cons: AF system not much better than in the old 5D Mark II. Despite many design similarities with EOS 60D/70D/80D, it lacks a vari-angle touch screen. SD card slot - I'd really prefer CF (or two).

Opinion: The 6D in many ways is an improvement to the 5D Mark II - better sensor, better plastic (no rattling doors), faster shooting, WiFi, GPS, better battery life (same battery though) and the smaller size and weight is appreciated by many. The back wheel+joystick/dir-pad combo works nicely. Now I can easily operate with my right hand without taking it off the grip, while holding the lens with my left, because most of the buttons are on the right side. There are some little things, like 1/4000 maximum shutter speed, 1/180 flash sync speed or no dedicated WB button, which make it inferior, but, for me, they are not that important.

Pros: Shooting higher ISO in museums and other locations without tripods.

Cons: All cameras have strong/weak points. More focus points and an integrated flash would be an option.

Opinion: Great camera. Always trying to make the best out of it. Speed is not to bad. Made fast moving events with the 6D, like air shows, rodeos and speed boats. For certain occasions a build in flash could save the day. It is also a discrete and smaller camera than the big pro bodies where some persons have to show their wealth. New cameras on the horizon. We might see an upgraded model 6D Mark II sometimes in 2017.

Pros: good quality sensor, excellent high seal iso, good af on the central point

Cons: 1/4000sec, af not always accurate in poor light, awb dancer in different situations

Opinion: I had this camera for about a year and I used it with a lot of lenses, the af in good light conditions behaves well (as long as you stay on the center point) but do not touch the peripheral points because they are unreliable, the machine body is robust and light, 20mpx I find them right for a camera of this band, the raw are not too heavy and are excellent lyper, the colors that returns in nature the sensor are not bad but the awb does a little too often. the shutter stops at 1/4000sec and with light lenses in the sun it takes a nd, combined with l-series optics that really show great results, the burst is great for what I used to do (weddings and studio photos). basically it is a machine discreetly fast, reliable and well designed although obviously it has some gaps that you can forgive it for what it costs ! first full frame given used prices.

Pros: Ergonomics, image quality, high ISO hold

Cons: Automatic White Balancing

Opinion: I decided to write after reading the previous comment. I've been using the 6D for 5 years and I'm more than satisfied. I use it for work, then architecture and furniture but also for some wedding of friends, mainly with the 24-70 f/4, but also with 50mm f/1.8 and 35mm f/2. Arriving at the 6D from a 50D I first enjoyed the hold at high ISO, which I can safely set even to over 2000 without having too much noise (which however is easily deleteable with so many software). The only flaw I noticed is in the use with the automatic WB, just change the frame a little to have a different color temperature. Maybe he calculates it on the focus points?. But working exclusively in RAW is a minor problem because I can set the point of white ness at my leisure during the "development" for homogeneous groups of shots. Many complain about the poor quality of secondary focus points, but it is a defect that I have not noticed (perhaps because hardly photograph in low light?). I don't make videos, nor do burst photos so I don't express myself on these features.

Pros: ergonomics and price

Cons: sensor, af, viewfinder

Opinion: great ergonomics, I found it new at a great price, too bad for the sensor and the af of pentax flavor... not to mention the viewfinder, a little peek of a dark cellar. High iso pitiful, af good to photograph statues, a real disappointment. I wanted to go back to canon, but I'll have to postpone when he makes decent cars, like ten years ago.
