Good price but I think the lowest was $$899 from black Friday last year with rebates. With that said the rebate process is painful at times and there is the chance that you won't get it

Wow. It's been 4 years since I bought my 6d.
They've come out with a Mark ll (to mixed reviews), but obviously the 6d is still, at it's price point, a great camera. Even considering the 'then and now' currency value, I paid the same price when I bought mine I purchased the 24-105L lens at the same time and have never regretted it.

IMO, the downsides to this model are
-one cross-focus point which, essentially, limits it's usefulness for sports or a moving target (I have a pocket Canon that is incredible in that regard).

-no follow auto-focus in video.

The full-frame, low light capabilities (high ISO) are why I bought this model (and the price vs the competition). If Canon had included better focusing performance, they would have severely cut into their 5D market.

1080p video is very good, but the lack of follow focus is a bummer - for that reason, I have other equipment when needed.

Everyone should carry a spare battery just in case, but the Canon brand battery for this is fantastic. I don't know why someone would see the need for the auxiliary battery pack that adds bulk.

If you're not anchored to the brand, I'm not sure what offering would be comparable at this price.

.
What camera that would be? I am waiting on 80D or 7DM2 deal...or 7DM3 release.

Oops - I really did mean a 'pocket' camera - one I always have with me as a just-in-case backup.
PowerShot ELPH 360 HS

In decent light it does okay for image quality, shoots 1080p and, as I was mentioning, the video follow focus is downright boffo..
Imagine tracking well as kids go around and around on a merry-go-round.

Now... dependant upon what if any lenses you already have, the options are immense.
I shoot primarily indoors or in subdued lighting.
The full frame sensor is of great value here.

The comparisons of the 6D and 7D Mark ll give great weight to the 7D if you don't have a system yet or have EF-S lenses. Good reading ahead:

If you want to get into bird photography, I would recommend a Canon 7D Mark II. Great focusing system, 10FPS and more. For a long lens, try the Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary. A bit of a heavy combination but great for bird photography!

Or a Nikon D7200/D7500 and spend the money on glass of whatever length like the Tamron SP 150-600mm at $1,200. With some careful shopping, you should be just under $2,000. You can't go wrong with either camera.

Thank you! I just purchased Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary from B&H for $749. It's for Canon. Now I need to find a good budget canon camera. I think I can use it with a6000 with MC11, but I want to go for a DSLR camera.
