"even though the IQ is great, the rest of the camera falls apart and destroys any appeal as an option, even if the current offering at b+h is only $100 more than the 5D2 kit."
Let me see... AF? better than 5D2, less than 5D3. @$1000 less, this is understandable. Shutter speed, 1/4000, this is good enough for most people. It has ISO 50 for those moments there's too much light or you can just plug-in an ND filter. IQ (ISO, DR, Color), comparable to 1DX, better than 5D3, a lot better than 5D2 especially in terms of ISO performance. This is actually a bargain if you ask me. WIFI, GPS, not so important depending on the person using it. So what's the gripe? WTH, some wedding photogs even prefer 6D than 5D3 when getting pictures in low-light (flash problem). @only $100 more than the 5D2 kit, who doesn't want it? For video, 5D3 is still a lot better or just get a video camera. Soon, just as 5D2, there will be a moire filter that will be provided for 6D. Would you still prefer your 5D2 over 6D? If you really hate 6D, then by all means get a 5D3 or just get a 5D2 and be content but please give facts when dissuading somebody else from buying a 6D.
