Unlock Your Vision. The EOS 6D DSLR camera is the ideal tool for unlocking your creative vision. It features a 20.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor, a wide ISO range of 100-25600, expandable to L: 50, H1: 51200, and H2: 102400, for incredible image quality even in low light, and a DIGIC 5+ Image Processor delivers enhanced noise reduction and exceptional processing speed. A new 11-point AF including a high-precision center cross-type AF point with EV -3 sensitivity allows focusing in extreme low-light conditions, and with continuous shooting up to 4.5 fps, you are ready to capture fast action. Full HD video with manual exposure control, multiple frame rates, and the benefits of a Full-Frame sensor provides stunning performance and creative flexibility. The built-in Wi-Fi® transmitter allows you to wirelessly transfer your images to social networking sites through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY#, or upload virtually anywhere from your iOS or Android smartphone* with the free download of the EOS Remote app**. You can use your smartphone for remote camera control and operation (with the EOS Remote app), or even print your images on a Wi-Fi® compatible printer^. Perfect for travel and nature photography, the built-in GPS## allows location data to be recorded while shooting. Compact, lightweight, brilliant low-light performance, and loaded with easy to use features, the EOS 6D is truly the Full-Frame DSLR camera for everyone.
I like several things about this camera, but its tendency to focus in front and off central objects has been out of focus too many time (soft). I was shooting a single central focus point with static objects in excellent conditions and the autofocus adjustments in camera could not correctly focus from time to time. I had expected the central autofocus point to be extremely accurate (off central was expected for certain situations), however this is the worst focusing Canon camera, I have ever own. This is to includes conventional film EOS Cameras. I have never had to adjust the autofocusing ring when shooting on any of my previous Canon bodies. They all worked perfect with various bodies, but not this one. This camera does not focus with the quality I expected from Canon’s EOS Cameras. Shooting sports photography, it was slower at focusing than previously experienced, too. However, this camera does turns out incredible images (as long as it is an optimal condition), but it’s my experience focusing is an issue. Further, I must admit to my fellow photographers... first chance, I am upgrading to the 5D Mark III because full frame is necessary for me and the focusing is much better.

Most responsive focus ever
I experminted shooting the Canadian Rockies with my 6D camera while moving 90km (60 mph) because of the few pull outs along the highway and being illegal to pull off the road. My only choice was to have my wife drive while I shot out the car window because I wanted to capture all the beauty the Rockies were displaying and it was my only chance. Upon reviewing my images I was suprised at the sharpness, clarity without blurr my images turned out and when I displayed my prints to friends they could not believe the results I got. Thanks for a great product.

Just what I wanted
After years of lugging around a 5D mkII and not wanting to invest in a mklll, I was hoping for a full frame Rebel. When convinced it wasn't going to happen, the 6D came along.
While size and weight appear of little significance on paper, you can tell the difference around your neck.
Favorite walk around kit is 6D with EF 24-85mm. If situation is serious enough to justify the weight, will switch to L primes.
Haven't used WI-FI yet. Rarely use video but they are there if I need them.
Can see a difference in the Digit 5+. Autofocus seems faster even though its the old system. No discernable noise (to me) up to 12,500 which helps the irritation of not having a built in flash. They claim it affects waterproofing but I hate carrying a flash just for fill.
Like the new power switch but battery wears out quickly.
Prefer CF cards even though I'm always bending pins. Afraid I'm going to lose SD cards.
If you consider yourself a far better photographer than you actually are, the 6D fills the bill. Don't be afraid to use the autos.

Work in progress?
I've owned Canon SLRs for a number of years and have used the 450D, 40D and recently migrated from a Canon 5DMKII.
Unfortunately there are two things I really do not like about this camera:
1. The buttons you use to zoom in when reviewing images on the LCD have been changed. Instead of the AE lock and AF point selection buttons, you now use the Main Dial button. I hate this and would like the option to toggle this back to the behaviour on the xxxD, x0D and 5D. The zoom button also seems pointless as it only zooms into a configurable but fixed level.
2. The GPS stays on and drains the camera battery even when the camera is off. I agree this is the desired behaviour if GPS logging (sub option) is on. If this option is off then the GPS should switch off when the camera is switched off.
I would really like both of these changed, Canon can you please get in touch and let me know the best way to submit this feature request.
While you can program the DOF preview button to bring up the electronic level, another way the camera could be improved is by showing the electronic level at the top of the viewfinder so it could be displayed all the time. This would work much better for people who handhold their cameras. Currently the level disappears as soon as you press the shutter half way down.
The 150g weight reduction from the 5DMKII is great, as is the reduction in size
