plutonium10, we can only HOPE! And FWIW, I think the 6D has great promise, esp if it was about $500 less. That's its biggest fault. Otherwise, the 6D may well work just fine. For what I do and how I shoot, it may eventually replace my 5D3. I'd love to still have what I need and get back ~$1000 some day. No way to know until the 6d has been out for a while and can be truly compared to the other relevant bodies. Heck, I barely know my 5D3 as of yet. No big rush, life goes on....
Agreed, the 6D itself seems like a decent camera. It's a simple and straightforward FF body for the entry-level crowd, and a competent replacement for the 5D II, even if the AF system might be somewhat underwhelming for more advanced users. Only time and testing will tell how effective the 11-point system actually is. What I do take issue with is the price tag, which is hardly "entry-level".
