I bought one just for the price. I passed up the $399 deal last month (on eBay). Even if I absolutely hate the camera, I could probably sell it on CL for a small profit!

Well, I have a pretty nice dSLR. But I don't use it for handheld video and instead, I have a Canon Vixia HF M41 camcorder for that. I frequently bring both with me. Obviously, the main reason is the lack of a usable 'camcorder-like' AF in the dSLR.
Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF appears to change that. I'm not sure if it will get incorporated into the high end dSLRs at some point (it might not - the Hybrid CMOS AF hasn't), but if it does, and the AF performance is as-billed, I'd consider ditching the camcorder and just using the dSLR for video.
I'd go 5DIII.
I was in a Best Buy a couple weeks ago and could not make heads or tales of the 6D's controls (I didn't spend a lot of time on it though).
I have a 5DIII and 1DsIII. I really love the 1DsIII's feel but I know deep down I should get another 5DIII. The biggest thing I miss is the multi-controller in portrait orientation (with grip). Next would be all the AF points.
I'd say with fast primes more AF points are paramount. Shooting shallow DOF and having to recompose will certainly equal lots of blown shots.
We get one topic like this per week. "should i sell my x/y/z to get the new 24-70L" Maybe there should be a sticky "Get it if you can really afford it, it rules". With an Oprah gif saying ëverybody gets a 24-70.
that is where I most contribute, because I love to spend other people's money.
and honestly, if it helps someone make s right decision or they feel more comfortable with their decision, then I am glad to have helpedeven if it is redundant.
