If the specs are true, besides GPS and wifi features and without knowing anything else besides the specs, it's just like having a fresh & updated look to the 5D Mark II. And it will be in the market for the next 2-3 years. A major failure if you ask me.

Has anyone else noticed that the microphone for video recording is just below (3 dots in a row) the EOS 6D insignia and not above like in the 7D - the way I hold my camera body, my thumb would cover the microphone??

Not the way I hold it. My thumb will be along side of the lens barrel.

Anyhow, picture looks like a good fake to me, if it's indeed one. It looks like a smaller size to me. Probably between 60D and 7D.

My take. Like many people already said it. It doesn't look like something from Canon for me. GPS and Wifi built-in? It doesn't look like a "Canon way". Well, maybe it's their new way. With the new president, they probably want to change the company direction. They already started with the hefty prices.

Even with GPS and Wifi, this doesn't look like a competition to D600 to me. If they come out like that, they better call it "Rebel" something because it looks like a camera that targets the same market of Rebel series. For me, even though I would like to have a smaller sized full frame DSLR as a backup to my 5D3, it would have to have an acceptable AF system and 11 AF points with one f/2.8 cross-type at the center is not acceptable to me. Canon should learn from 5D2 complaints that AF is one of the most important aspects that serious photographers are concerned about. 4-5 years ago, 5D2 AF might be acceptable at the time. But not in 2012!

Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but why does one need 60+ autofocus points?  I keep my camera set to the center focus.  Focus, frame.  That's how I learned to operate a camera. Am I doing it wrong?

No, you aren't doing anything wrong. That's what I did when I first moved from manual film camera to a DSLR 15+ years ago as well.

However, if you do AI Servo or if you use fast primes like 50/1.2L, more AF points are helpful. At f/1.2 or even f/1.4, even a slightest move can make your subject out of focus. That's why so many people are happy about 5D3 over 5D2, myself included.

Must be a typo there somewhere. It should either read

22mp (Same sensor as 5D3)

or

21mp (Same sensor as 5D2)
