Canon Engineers are much more clever than you think.  They have two or three things that are not on the list planned.

The issue could be that its IQ (if) is better than 5D3 and the 5D3 owners are whining about it.  Somebody(a 5D3 owner) is already whining when some 6D jpeg shots are released by dpreview.

dbreview and DXO are the sites have most B.S reviews ever - to me.

You might as well post another topic with title: "6D + 24-70 f4 IS is out perform 5D III + 24-70 f2.8 II" ::)

The issue will be too many whiners complaining about it.  :P

Reviews from such sites can be taken with a grain of salt but should not be entirely ignored.  They may not be entirely correct but who is?  Copies may sometimes vary aside from the fact that some features reviewed are purely subjective.  That said, some truths are hard to accept.

... unless you accept them before spending your first $: tech gear is bound to loose value, break and being superseded by superior gear, and no tech standard (ef) or system (eos) is here to stay forever.

+1.  That's why we always say, shoot as much as you can.  It's all about your pictures and not about what you use to take those pictures.  Buy your tool and use it.  If something better comes after, as long as you have taken good pictures with your current tool, I don't think there'll be room for regrets.

Or you could have the option to modify the GPS data so it reads in another preset location.

It will only take boring pictures of course! 5D3 or 1DX in the same situation would have delivered 146% better images. FACT!

A related topic, is there any moderation of the canonrumors forum? There is so much anti-canon stuff that is allowed to proliferate and seems mainly aimed at making canon owners think they make poor decisions and should be filled with regret. Instead, this forum could be a pleasant haven for Canon users where people share, solve and support one another. All it would take is some decent moderation of the anti-Canon crap from either bitter people or blatant trolls.

As long as they don't resort to personal attacks, name calling, or profanity; they shouldn't be moderated.  My job isn't to judge peoples personal opinions, they're entitled to them, and I would refuse the job if given it.  As long as things are kept civil, most things will work themselves out, and most dedicated trolls will leave out of boredom or banned because of bad behavior.  There are some forum members that started off with very trollish behavior and ended up becoming good helpful forum members.

Amen.  Very well said, and it speaks very well of the integrity of this entire site!

 A bit of humour and self-mockery never killed anyone. Let's keep it fun and light, it's just a camera after all....

How? Even with stills where you can easily focus even manually?  I hope what you're saying is a joke.  There are lots of proud 5D2 owners around that can show you how "boring" their pictures are... What's behind the camera is what's more important.  :D

That "feature" could have saved US tax payers at around $100 million: http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2012/06/05/3517805.htm:

...
Getting back to the snap-happy soldiers who cost the US taxpayer lots of money, back in 2007 at a military base in Iraq, they took delivery of some AH-64 Apache helicopters. These are not cheap choppers. In 2012, the price of a brand-new one was $38 million. The soldiers proudly took pictures of their new attack helicopters, and then uploaded them onto the web. Almost certainly, the soldiers did not realise that geo-location tags were embedded in those photographs.

According to Steve Warren, a US Army Manoeuvre Centre Of Excellence intelligence officer, "the enemy was able to determine the exact location of the helicopters inside the compound and conduct a mortar attack, destroying four of the AH-64 Apache".
