compared toMirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon 6D compared to mirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors include: it has higher quality type of viewfinder (pentaprism vs digital), has a weather sealed body, much more lenses available (165 lenses vs 77 lenses), has a much longer battery life (980 shots vs 210 shots) and uses fast phase detection autofocus (phase detection vs hybrid detection).

However, on average it records higher quality movies (1080p @ 30fps vs 1080p @ 60fps), doesn't have image stabilization (none vs sensor shift), takes slightly lower resolution photos (20.9 MP vs 36.2 MP), doesn't have a touch screen and doesn't have a screen which flips out.
