I grew up using a Canon A-1... One point focusing ain't all that bad...... and the 6D, even if you opt to dumb it down to 1 AF point,  is pretty damn awesome in my opinion - I love mine.

6D should be considered as 1point AF camera

I had issues with every other point. It really is a 1 point AF camera. If the lighting was great, lots of contrast available, with a slower moving subject, all 11 points were great. But when I dimmed the light or tried focusing on a subject with less contrast, the outer points would sometimes miss. Nothing like my 5D3.
I reviewed the 6D and outlined those issues : http://learningcameras.com/reviews/4-dslrs/91-canon-6d-review if you wanted to take a look. ISO performance was great...much better than when I tested the Nikon D600. Dynamic range was on par with other Canon cameras (nothing like the Nikons). The review has the sample images if you want to see them.

Comparison with the 5D3 video as well for those who want to see the differences. The 6D produces great images, but using it is more like using a 60D with a couple new features than anything else. You will love it if you love the 6D. If you are coming from a 5D2 or 5D3, the photos will still be great with the 6D but there is a good amount missing.

But then again, the 6d has a lot of advancements over the older 5d2 that aren't that obvious but still important like better metering/awb, less banding, silent shutter, ... see http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=11309.0

That's a bit of an exaggeration.  I've used the outer points on Canon's xxD cameras going back 10 years.  They do work, but not as well.  They are not cross type, so they are limited in direction and accuracy.  It doesn't mean they don't work at all.  They work, but they don't offer the latest, best, most accurate AF.  Yes, cross-type points are much better.

Yeah Dylon, I am forced to go with the loyalist on this one; your comment did sound like an elitist snub  :P

Again....it should be considered as 1point AF camera.

Off topic: There is nothing wrong with 1point AF camera. I use center AF 75% in my shooting.

I partly disagree, it simply depends on the possibility of re-taking the shot or not - for "mission critical" shots the outer af points are probably out of the question, but if you want less focus & recompose with shallow dof and then review/retake the "extra" 10 points should be nice to have. And for tracking in good light it's most likely better to select more af points because the camera interpolates between them and single point af might loose focus faster.

Off topic, too: For peace of mind, it's best not to think of any other dslrs or competing brands out there.
