Imaging Resource posted their review of Canon's entry-level fullframe DSLR, the Canon EOS 6D (price & specs). Another review that confirms the EOS 6D's excellent qualities, especially when it concerns image quality, which, as stated in other reviews, is on par or even superior to its bigger sibling, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (price & specs).
A good EOS 6D deal is offered by top rated plus eBay seller getitdigital (>41900 ratings, 99.6% positive): the EOS 6D is on sale for .
In the conclusion they write:
With the 20.2-megapixel EOS 6D, Canon has created a smaller, lighter and less expensive full-frame digital SLR for prosumer photographers. In many ways, the well-designed 6D is a mini 5D Mark III for the rest of us. While it doesn't feature as robust a camera build as that step-up model, and its autofocus system is decidedly basic, the Canon 6D is otherwise a fantastic, responsive DSLR that offers the glories of full-frame in a trim but comfy camera body. Plus, you get full-featured, built-in Wi-Fi and GPS to boot.
Pros: Excellent image quality on par to more expensive full-frame DSLRs (including the 5D Mark III); Responsive all-around performer; Superior HD video-shooting chops; Built-in Wi-Fi with remote control and sharing features, Built-in GPS and geotagging.
Cons: Lacks a built-in, pop-up flash; No external headphone jack; Rather basic 11-point autofocus system; Mediocre burst speed.

A recent review of the PowerShot G15 was published by Digital Camera Review. In the conclusion hey write:
[…] the Canon G15 does not disappoint. It is an all around excellent point and shoot for anyone ranging from amateurs to seasoned professionals. The 12.1-megapixel sensor paired with the Digic 5 image processor makes for a great combination. It is able to be used in a wide variety of settings due to the vast ISO range, the great 28-140mm focal length and the fast f1.8-f2.8 lens. Add to that beautiful spec sheet the ability to shoot video at whim due to the dedicated movie button and you have a camera that will be hard to put down.
This camera has so much going for it. The body is durable and has a nice finish. It is solid while handling, quick to respond, and offers great image quality. Besides a few flaws that are pretty easy to overlook I can highly recommend this camera for a vast majority of the population. I think that professionals will respond very positively due to its nice feature set and plethora of physical buttons that negate delving into a deep in-camera menu.
