Just a word of warning. I don't think anyone should count on being able to choose between a new 6D and a new 5DII.
Once the 6D hits the shelves, expect the 5DII to disappear. At a minimum, all rebates and discounts on any remaining 5DIIs in dealers' stock will end and dealers will quit receiving any new shipments. Canon did a remarkable job of pulling the 580EXII and making it impossible to find. Expect the same with the 5DII.
Refurbished and used models will remain, but they could very well be selling for as much or more than new models are now going for.
It is not in Canon's best interests to allow consumers to choose between the 6D and a heavily discounted 5DII. By the time the 6D is available, your choices on the new market will be the 6D or the 5DIII.
Pleeeeeease, let the 6D have similar IQ to the 5DmkIII. I'm really counting on this. Today's US$1,549 deal for the MkII is really tempting!. We'll see.
