Magic Lantern anyone?

This is the only reason I went with canon, coming from sony... even though the d600 has better iq and was cheaper.

Personally, I'm deciding between the two as well, and I'll probably just go with the one that ends up being cheaper if there are any big year-end sales.

6D, 17-40L, 40mm pancake or 50 1.8, 85 1.8
vs.
D600, 18-35G, 50 1.8G, 85 1.8G

Things I like about the Canon: cheaper lenses, better ergonomics on body
Things I dislike about the Canon: only one cross-type AF point, only one card slot, no pop-up flash (for remote triggering)

Things I like about the Nikon: newer lenses, higher DR sensor, two card slots, pop-up flash, more cross-type AF points (albeit concentrated in the center)
Things I dislike about the Nikon: grip is a little more unnatural feeling, back-button AF not as easy as the Canon, possible oil/dust issues

Right now I'm leaning towards the D600, but Canon tends to have better holiday sales.

I've borrowed a 6D from CPS and was dissapointed with it's outer AF points. I'm not a focus recompose type shooter but, trying to nail a shot with the center point is something I'm not willing to risk when a client is writing out the check. :) With the D600, it can lock much better in low light ( personal experience). Dust wasn't a big issue for me. I'm competent enough to clean my sensor and it seems to have resolved itself. Nikon imo. has the edge when it comes to sensor tech.

Starting to sound like they over oiled it and your 'reserve' finally ran out.

Nope. I didn't have any problem with oil.
