Thanks for the additional responses! It seems like there is a decent chance that the price will drop in half a year, so I think I am going to wait and hope that it does. Of course, I'll be really mad if the price doesn't drop and I just lose 6 months of use, but... I'll take the risk
I am using an old Canon Xti right now, but I took tens of thousands of pics with it and it taught me the basics, I think. So hopefully, the 6D won't be much of a learning curve if I get it last-minute. On that note, I am going to be really sad about losing the use of my 10-22mm lens. The 17-40mm is expensive, not as wide and probably heavier
On the bright side, I like that I will not be charged for more than 11 focus points. In fact, I wish it just had one focus point - I set up my camera to only use the middle one anyway, which I control with a separate button. Is there any reason for more? This camera seems to be geared more for general enthusiasts like me, not sports or bird photographers, and I find that using the middle point only via a separate button is actually better for travel and landscape photography. This even includes GPS - I am anticipating it to be the perfect travel camera!
