A native 400mm DO II would very likely outperform a TC combo. There's definitely shooters who will rarely use the f/2.8 capability (and be happy with "just" 300mm).

I'm not interested in "best value" because I already have a 70-200/2.8L IS II and a 2x TC III. My best value is to buy nothing at all. Thus, I'm looking for something that will substantially out-resolve and out-focus my current combo, and it looks to me like the Tamron will do neither, thus being $1,069 wasted.
taking into consideration the strong competitionCanon don't need to care about the competition
You can complain all you want about the 6D and its features, but unless you can produce better numbers, don't think for a minute that it hasn't been a great success for Canon.
I may be late to this discussion, but I think what most users including myself have issues with the 6D is that as a consumer you feel Canon is NOT giving you "great value" for your money when they take the AF system back to one center cross-type, while Nikon doesn't seem to cripple their bodies in the same way. It was biggest the complaint about the 5D Mark II, and Canon addressed it well with the Mark III, only to revert back to it with the 6D. My memory is not that short term.Also late to the topic but this echoes my thoughts too.
I would've guessed because not everyone is deliberately playing dumb and pretending the 70D didn't exist for a while and the IQ is equivalent to that.The initial reception to this camera based on specs was pretty tepid, which I didn’t understand.
