Need hands-on 6D info. Is flash-assist lag better than 5D3?

[ Edited ]

Any day someone will have a hands-on review, but ZERO info out there as of today.  My main concern is this flash-assist lag problem that is getting so much talk on the 5D3.  Whether it is small crowded AF points, or just a firmware glitch, it seems to be a real issue.


Question:  Does 6D grab focus more quickly in dim light than 5D3 does? 


Canon 5d mk 4, Canon 6D, EF 70-200mm L f/2.8 IS mk2; EF 16-35 f/2.8 L mk. III; Sigma 35mm f/1.4 "Art" EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro; EF 85mm f/1.8; EF 1.4x extender mk. 3; EF 24-105 f/4 L; EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS; 3x Phottix Mitros+ speedlites

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

I don't think it's really clear which way it goes but this discussion may be of help.
