Richer?? Are you joking? Our country is in a double dip recession! No one has money. Shops are all closing. No one can get on the housing market. We have the lowest unemployment we've had in years. AND I CAN'T AFFORD A FULL FRAME CAMERA  :-[ :-[

I would pay $2,099 to have it in December. I would pay $1,500 to have it after the holiday rush ends, maybe Spring 2013.

If it turns out to have great high ISO capabilities and a fast, accurate center AF point (with a motor sufficiently powerful enough to quickly drive the lens) I would pay $2,099 for it after the holidays, too.

Not trying to rub it in, but I do have a job, and i can afford a Full Frame Camera.
They cost $1600 brand new, and they're called the 5D mk2.
Paying $500 more, plus investing in new cards (and waiting another 3 months for the privelige), is a bit ridiculous imho...
Too much gear, too little space.

The Canon 5dmk II is useless to be because it doesn't have the option to shoot at 50/60fps which I do an awful lot.
I was excited at the 6d at first but not anymore. Max flash sync speed being 180 is a massive issue for me (already a thread on that somewhere).
I will have to put up with the 7D for a while longer!

D600's price in EU went down already by 10-20%. Looks like Nikon wants to eat as much of the market as they can.

And honestly, the more the D600's price goes down, the less the 6D looks like a nice alternative.

I am a Rebel owner who would have purchased this product. I was waiting with bated breath.
I think the sensor is a good size and IQ is likely to be excellent.
I wanted an integrated speedlite transmitter (like the 60D has) rather than the GPS/wifi combo. I don't want to carry lots of gizmos and extras. A camera and a speedlite is ideal for me.
I think the autofocus is an upgrade from the Rebel series but not quite what I was expecting. It sounds like the center AF point may well kick @55, especially in low light but it remains to be seen whether the other AF points are any good. I only use the center AF point on my Rebel because it's the only reliable one. Effectively I have a single AF point camera for most of the time.
I don't mind the basic video function because I want a great stills camera. I'd like to try the 6D with the 50 f/1.4 lens. Could be a killer combo.
However, unless the price is competitive with the 7D, I can't justify buying this product.
So in the UK, the 6D would have to be £1000 or less for me to be interested. It's currently listed at £1799.99 for pre-order.

The 6D is going cheaper than the D600 on Japan amazon, at over ¥20,000 off from what they're asking for the D600.
But, convert their prices to dollars and both are still above $2100  :-\
