I was looking at some old reactions for 6D.  I was surprised that some of the people bashing 6D are the same ones praising it or at least giving it some credibility nowadays.  :) ;D
And some are still persistent in their dislike about it.

Even if repeating myself: Imho it all depends on the price, because with the 6d you're basically buying good iq (well, and wlan/wifi if you need it). So "just" good iq for €2100: no, but "budget" good iq for @1500: yes.
6D IQ = 5D3 IQ.  Both have better than "good" IQ in my opinion.
With the 6D you settle for a less robust AF system, no second memory card, etc. to save roughly $1,000.  For me and many others that's a good trade off.
Bodies:  6D, EOS-M (22/2 and 18-55)
Lenses: Rokinon 14mm 2.8, 35mm 2.0 IS, 85mm 1.8, 100mm 2.8L IS Macro, 135mm 2.0L, 24-70mm 2.8L II, 70-200mm 2.8L IS II, Extenders: EF 1.4xIII, EF 2xIII ; Flash: ST-E3-RT, 600EX-RT (x3)

Fyi: I'll buy a 6d, too, so it's not like I'm opposed to it. It's just that I don't expect to be able to take very different shot swith the 6d vs. my current 60d, actually I'm loosing af flexibility and reach but am gaining high iso iq.

With the 5d3 af, I'd be able take completely other shots where my 60d af simply fails - so the 5d3 doesn't have a more "robust" af system, but a really different level. I think it's currently wiser to invest the 6d/5d3 difference into filters, lighting gear and other accessories that won't loose value.

I also got a 6D. I am an amateur.
I only like good IQ and depth of field only full frame can give.

With Canon, I get these bonuses: good low light, lighter, and I like the body lay out more.
What could I ask more.
