I spent $3.5k on camera gear last year. I consider myself part of the target market for a 6D, currently owning a 60D and 5Dc. I own two speedlites. I know how to use them. For me lack of onboard flash is a major negative for the 6D. There are plenty of times I want some subtle fill in daylight and don't want to have to carry a speedlight. When I travel I typically don't want to carry an external flash. and it could have been used a a controller as per the 7D.

If those features and those 5% of photos are important to you, then the D600 is the right camera for you.
Using similar reasoning, I bought 2 Nikon bodies, 3 Nikon zooms, 2 Nikon primes and 2 Nikon flashes back in 2011. I figured they would improve some percentage of my photos. I used them for a few months. However, while some features were a bit better, others were a bit worse. So I gained and I lost. On balance, there was no improvement. I ended up selling each of those items. I found that sometimes what looks attractive "on paper" is balanced out by other considerations when you get to real use. I also concluded that Nikon and Canon are so closely matched there there is no clear winner between the two. Which is better ultimately depends on one's personal preferences and specific photographic applications.
