Having spent some time working with the camera on a two week family trip to rural Portugal, I am now in a position to give a more authoritative review of the 6D. Though I am not in the camp of moaners who say `why hasn't it got this' or `the Nikon xxx is better as it has this', etc, I do have one or two small criticisms (see below).
As an introduction, here is a summary of strengths and weaknesses:
Pros
* Excellent image quality, in both RAW and JPEG, ability to produce clean images up to 10,000 ISO and acceptable images at H2 - 102,500 ISO!
* Hence, great versatility with available light and indoor situations and street shooting at night
* Noiseless images up to 1000 ISO at least, with the L 50 ISO setting producing superb images
* Incredibly versatile photographic tool - with FF and massively usable ISO range, this is a superb machine for reportage, travel, landscape, social and documentary photography
* With WiFi capability, it should be good enough for light duty studio and location work too
* Tested with 24-105L, 17-40L, 28mm f1.8 and 85mm f1.8 EF lenses. Lack of vignetting with all tested wide open and stopped down and at wide ends on the zooms. The 24-105L - a notorious lens for vignetting at the wide end - seemed to be trouble free
* State of the art low light focussing ability: EV -3 apparently. The best of any Canon DSLR I have used. Significantly better than the 7D and 1Dx
* Silent shooting mode a real boon. Very quiet operation for a FF camera (even in non-silent mode) - the shutter release is significantly quieter than the 5D's. I was able to take photographs during a church mass with no problems
* Commendable battery life. Same LP-E6 battery as most EOS cameras above the 600-series.

Firstly I am a big fan of Canon and have quite a collection of lenses including three L series. I have two other cropped sensor bodies 550d and 600d. I also own two Nikons D7000 and D3100 so I am not bias in any way as both systems produce the goods I need. THIS Canon 6d is just awesome. It has some gadgets like GPS which I don't use but its there if you want it. The silent shutter mode is perfect for pictures inside churches or for pet portraits. I honestly believe that Canon have produced a serious winner here. The camera feels solid and ergonomically ideal. I added the battery grip BG13 onto it to make it more stable as my Canon 100=400mm L series is a brute of a thing!

On opening the box it took only a matter of minutes to set it up and although the battery was dead on arrival my trusty battery grip and rechargeable AA batteries allowed me to get to work. This is a fine looking camera and performs superbly. If it wasn't any good I would have shelled out so much money for it. It performs as it should with minimal fuss and all the controls are in reach without removing the eye from the viewfinder. There are plenty of gadgets it doesn't have but really all my cameras have something the other doesn't. This is the smallest Full frame camera if i'm not mistaken on the market but built like my Nikon D7000 in that its rock solid and ideal for travel and harsh treatment.

I recently took the camera to Belfast for some night shots around the Laganside and Waterfront Hall. I was simply blown away by the low light capability of this camera. I tried some high iso handheld shots and honestly could not find the grain. The meter literally works in Moonlight pitch dark and the auto focus still worked. I didn't even bracket my pictures and the meter got it right every time. Put simply.

I guess I'm Canon's "perfect" type of customer, as my travel started with a 400D, then 60D, then a second hand 5D MK1 and now I own a 6D.

To describe 6D in one sentence is to say: it's a 60D with a full frame sensor.

Image quality:
- awesome dynamic range (I can rescue up to 4 stops of overexposure in Lightroom)
- very good high ISO up to 6400 (more a bit too grainy for my liking)
- great colours (as all Canons)
- lots of pixels to crop from, really detailed images

Handling
- great LCD screen
- small size & weight (for a Full Frame DSLR)
- buttons similar to 60D, but less "mooshy", with better feedback
- new 8 way controller quite comfortable for selecting focus points
- LiveView/Video switch nicely taken out of the mode dial
- mode dial now turns 360, and is rid of all the scene modes (finally!)
- FPS are just quick enough (when shooting in Continuous mode I often end up with 2 shots, not releasing the shutter button quickly enough)
- AF is acceptable (the central AF point very sensitive and accurate, side points much less accurate)
- battery life great (1000+ photos per charge)

Others
- only SD card slot (1 slot, so no in camera backup)
- video features almost same as other Canon DSLRs (which means manual focus only viable option)
- video either automatic or manual, can't use Aperture Priority for example
- preview mode redesigned with new buttons, takes a while to get used to. Custom function to open images in 100% to start with to check focus.
