On paper, 650D already had it better. With the exception of light sensitivity, that is.
Well that depends on how you define better, both T bodies have more cross-type AF points then the 6D this is true, but all those cross-types are only sensitive to -0.5 ev and f5.6, ONLY the center point kicks in with with a diagonal cross with lenses of f2.8 or faster. The 6D has only one cross-type sensor at it's center AF point but it's sensitive to -3ev and the cross-type becomes active also with lenses that are f5.6 or faster.
I'm not defending Canon for putting only one cross-type AF sensor in the 6D, that's just nuts when they could have put the f5.6 sensitive cross-types for it's outer points. You find more folks putting fast primes and zooms on FF bodies, why Canon didn't go all cross-types is just a...WTF.
The 6D's center point is a freak, one-of-a-kind-so-far AF cross-type, given many use center point recompose for shooting, this hybrid AF sensor is pretty likable, if not just down-right-cool...IMHO
