Good interview with a canon exec on the 6D.
Thanks for the link. He does make an interesting point of cross af points vs. low light sensitivity. What I don't really agree with is a smartphone replacing a swivel screen and the 6d as a wedding camera (1/180s x-sync for weddings, af'ing isn't good for anything if the available light shutter speed is too low).
The most interesting fact is that Canon has no problem at all with their prices - they really seem to ignore any competition from Nikon and other manufacturers completely.
