I just did some further tests, there has been no improvement, I still have to micro-adjust by 10-11 on each lens. Very dissapointing to experience this with such an expensive body, especially when I was so happy with the original 6D. If you can still somehow return yours, I would highly recommend it.

In the days before AF microadjustment was available in firmware Canon service would take your lenses and body and adjust them; I had that done shortly after I bought my 1DM2 and several lenses in 2005.
For those of you experiencing this issue have you questioned Canon service whether they would check the camera with your lenses? It might keep them from sending back a body that still doesn't work well for you. Of course that isn't going to be something they will do with third party lenses.
I just went through the AF adjustment check with my recently purchased 1DX M2 and the seven Canon lenses I have had since 2005 and the most any of them needed was a 2 point offset. If multiple lenses are needing a large offset it sounds like the issue is still in the body and although inconvenient to send a lense in as part of service maybe doing so will result in a real fix to the body. Just a thought to maybe help some of you provide a resolution to the problem as I would be very frustrated also if I had such a major AF issue with a new camera body.
I was frustrated enough finding that the Canon E1 hand strap I liked so much on my 1DM2 has turned into the E2 which isn't as wide and doesn't provide the same feel as the old E1. I would steal the E1 off my 1DM2 body but I am giving that camera to my daughter so that wouldn't be nice. After nearly ending up with a counterfeit E1 strap via ebay I found a nice new unused real Canon strap which is on the way. Being disappointed by the fit of a hand strap is bad enough and doesn't come close to the bad experience of owning a camera which is equipped with an excellent AF system that isn't working properly.
