Well... This rumor does imply "utilize" so I'm hoping for the chance it's nowhere near the same as an SL1 sensor... But hopefully that also means they're focusing harder on upgrading the AF, something we've been waiting for too long.

On the EOS 6D right now, there is no fast/easy way to change/set the White Balance. Even my old 30D camera has a WB button where you press it, then rotate the main dial to change the WB presets.
On the 6D right now, you can customize the SET button to change IMAGE QUALITY, PICTURE STYLE, MENU, ISO (hold the set button and rotate the main dial), FLASH COMPENSATION.
I wish Canon could include White Balance as one of the options. There are already a button for ISO and MENU, yet they're included in the option. I bet everyone who is using the 6D miss the WB button. That's the first one I notice when using the 6D.
If you try to take pictures of insects or butterflies in flight you will really appreciate the IS.
In flight insects?? IS won't help you with moving objects - so what if you can shoot @ 1/30? - image of live insect will be useless. Even flowers move in the wind, so again IS won't help. The L uses larger filters and needs an expensive adapter to mount the MR or MT flashes. If your primarily interested in macro, save your money and get a good flash and learn how to use it for handheld shots. If not, the IS may be of value. I've had the USM version almost from introduction and I've always been very pleased with the results and never wished it had IS, but I use it almost exclusively for macro [1:3 - 1:1 and beyond with tubes]. I have other lenses [w/ IS] for other shooting situations.
Just this morning I was shooting video outside with the 60D. Generally speaking, 1/50 is the shutter speed you need to stick with which only leaves ISO and aperture that can be adjusted. Since even at ISO 100 your f/stop is going to be really high that means the only way to get down as low as you want is with ND filters. In a nutshell they are like putting sunglasses on a lens.
So the settings I used were:
ISO 160 (I only use multiples of 160, or "native ISOs", but that is a different topic)
ND .9 filter
Like I said, to get down to f/1.8 in broad daylight without drastically increasing the shutter speed is going to take a crap ton of ND.
Hi Omar, get yourself one of these, there are a few Brands around it doesn't need to be this Brand, B+W make them as do others, I use this one on my 24-70 to control light/movement.
Lee Filters also make something similar but in a Rectangular design that fits into a Filter Holder, but for Video the Circular ND Filter will work better, I think, I'm not much into Video.
Got mine today!
And even though I haven't even done any afma yet, except a ballpark of +5 at 70mm, this lens changes everything. Holy mother!
I haven't seen sharpness, color and contrast AND blistering AF like this since I owned the 300 f2.8 IS. Simply mindblowing. And to say it's as sharp as the 24 L II is a big understatement for the three copies I have owned of that lens, it's WAY better. Superb build. Weight and balance on the 1d X is perfect, a bit tight zoom-ring, but that's just because it's spanking new I guess.
And I got a great deal with special offer and cashback so price isn't a negative anymore. I might miss the deep hood of the mk1 which was great for keep rain off the front element, but hey.
Oh, and it came with the pinch-cap, which I still frikkin hate, I'm buying an old one for it.
