You seriously can't go wrong if you're thinking about getting a 6D.
This camera is the perfect option if you are wanting to upgrade to full frame from crop.
In my opinion, this camera is better than the 5DII in almost every area.
The low light functionality also makes this camera a dream-come-true for low light photographers.
Don't hesitate in bumping the ISO up when it's needed.

Don't know about that... but I do love my 6D. Especially at night.

I'd like to second that! I absolutely love the Canon 6D. Autofocus could be improved on the outer points (while the center point is excellent, however). And it's true that this camera can practically see in the dark. I love this camera! I've pushed the camera up to ISO 10,000 before, and the shots have come out perfectly usable. Incredible.

One thing that still bugs me is the 1/180th of a second max sync speed, but there are (obviously) ways around that.

If you don't mind me asking, what are the ways around it? I'm new to the 6D and flash photography and have been wondering how to get a higher sync speed. I'm guessing just use a flash with HSS?

Yup, I use HSS when I want faster shutter speeds. I have a Canon 580EX ii and a pair of Yongnuo yn-622C triggers to allow off camera flash. The yn-622's are pretty cool cause, additionally, they'll focus in almost pitch black on a dark subject quickly and accurately--I really love these and highly recommend them.

Cheers,
Rich

That sounds awesome! I can't thank you enough for the info. :) I have been planning on buying a 480 EXII used on here to use as my first flash (I believe it has HSS), but if it doesn't have HSS, then I'll nab a 580 EXII.
