Canon EOS 6D Official Spec Leaked VS Nikon D600

It seems that the official technical specification of the Canon 6D has been leaked.
I hope that this camera will be announced very soon, probably today or tomorrow when the Photokina 2012 will start.

Here you can see a comparison table from the leaked tech spec of the Canon 6D and the
official tech spec of the recently announced Nikon D600 (probably the real successor of the D700):[
