I just received my 6D (refurb) yesterday. I love it! I don't understand why some people think it feels cheap. The camera has some heft to it, it feels sturdy, sounds great in use. It really feels alot like my 7D. Other than not having a sync terminal, I can't find, so far, any negatives. I don't shoot sports, so 4.5 frames per second is fine. The few photos I've taken are sharp and well exposed. I'm very pleased. Less than 3000 clicks and $1215, I can't complain.

The 6D is nice; a lot of people are coming from the 5d II so they feel cheated with the 6d
Some people who don't like the 6D just had unrealistic expectations.
It's a great camera; just use center focus and you'll get the shot even in the dark

:D funny.
Isn't it "you have chosen wisely" though? ;)

Regardless, OP congrats on the camera.

Feels cheap cause you haven't felt a 5DII or 5DMIII. Other than that, not as good auto focus, slower max shutter speed, slower max sync speed, no dual memory card slot.

...and costs less than half, you forgot to add ;)
Here we go again; this will again turn into one of the dozens of 6D vs other full framers thread.
Getting the popcorn out :)

By the way, I've owned 5D, 1D in the past and currently own a 7D besides my 6D (also a 70D and wife owns a T4i). The 6D's build and ergonomics are totally fine with me. I'm not taking it into a hurricane or a war zone, just like most people here don't take their 5Ds there either ;)

But it's all subjective. The best bang for the buck image quality, coupled with pretty good build is my priority. Everyone here has different demands, different needs, and thus different tools. So projecting our own needs out to others here and expecting them to make their purchasing decisions based on what we ourselves need, is useless in my opinion. We are all different. I personally consider the build quality of the 6D good even though I've owned pretty much every DSLR series Canon produces at one point. But that's just me, others might think it differently.

there are some who don't like it and have never owned it or used it for an extended time.

it seems that bobbyz is already having a much better time focusing with his new canon lens on the 6D than he had with his sigma (glad it's working for you bobby).

having had a 5DII and a 1D series... I still don't feel the 6D feels cheap what so ever. Its an amazing camera and an amazing deal. I LOVE it. I feel the IQ is leaps and bounds over the 5DII and it will be one that sticks around for a while.

+1. Coming from a 5DII, this doesn't feel like anything but an upgrade in my book.
