I think 24-105 is fine on my 60D but it really depends on your style of shooting. I find it to be a bit tight (and slow) indoors, but outside it's fine, for the most part.

I think the 6D would be an excellent travel camera. With a FF sensor, you can just bring a pancake and you are good to go, even in low light situations. The -3EV AF is a terrific feature.
I'd be interested in the answer to that question as well. As a 60D owner I'm actually surprised at how similar the two cameras seem to be...I recently upgraded from the 60D to the 5DII. They seem very similar in most of the ways that I shoot. A couple ergonomic issues are different, but largely they are the same. For example, the AF seems identical. The metering on my 5DII seems a little more accurate. The key differentiator is the ISO speed and cleaner noise at higher ISOs, which benefits the 5DII (and 6D) substantially. Regardless of how the 6D performance shakes out, you should consider a 5DII upgrade path because the ISO performance is a real upgrade.
Hmmm if, in real life, the autofocus works better than the 5D mkii and the image quality turns out to be at least as good if not better I might well start getting excited about this camera as a potential 60D upgrade!
I'm in the same boat. I want to go full frame. When I shoot weddings, I use the company's 5D mk2/mk3 so I don't really NEED one. I'd like to have a FF body for personal use for less than the price of a mk3. If the AF is good, I'd be much closer to a final decision. My 60D has 9 AF points and all 9 are cross type but I typically just use the center and recompose anyway.
I wish it had AF during video. When I'm shooting videos, I usually like to focus manually and was looking forward to having a DSLR that had AF during video if I wanted to shoot a 2nd angle on a tripod and just let it run while I manually focus with the other camera but alas, I might have to get a T4i just for that purpose.
Does anyone who's actually played with the 6D know if the AF on the 6D works BETTER than the 60D? any thoughts or input would be welcome.
I used to have 70-200 f/4 IS, but honestly it didn't fit me well. Specially if you taking a lot of candid and portrait, I would say use 70-200 f/2.8 will serve your need much better. Now I use 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II, and I love this lens (except for the weight, after I carrying it around for a while )
I kind of feel like we're seeing a consensus here on a few issues - that being learning and gaining experience trumps gear when judging image quality. Gear gives you more options, but those options are really only available to you if you spend that time learning the gear.
