I carry 7D, 5D MkIII, 15/f2.8, 24-105/f4, 70-200/f4, 500/f4, 1.4x and 2.0x TCs. That certainly gives me full focal length range (although I'm Jonesing for a 600mm to replace the 500mm).

Is there a full-frame mirrorless right that'd cover my 15mm to 400mm range?

I'm afraid to think about replacing those L-series lenses with equivalents. $$$

Of course, matching batteries, cards and accessories has its advantages.

Dave
The only full frame mirror less that I know of right now is the Sony A7 series. With the proper adapter you can use all of your current lenses. However, the body and adapter weigh nearly as much as a 6D. Perhaps Fuji will surprise everyone next month at Photokina.

Same goes for me. I really like my Nex-6 for wandering around San Francisco and other things, but for wildlife, trains, planes, and automobiles, it just doesn't cut it. The EVF can't keep up with moving objects, and just like Dave said, the focal lengths just aren't there with mirror-less / M4/3 yet.

Famous architectural parking garage in Miami Beach, called 11 11 or 1111 Lincoln Road. No walls, all open space. Will shoot the outside of it someday soon (in the right light) - but it's pretty impressive inside especially for a car shoot.

6D + TS-E 17 w/Fotodiox kit & 155mm slim CPL

Went out for elk, but got a couple of decent hawk shots as well. I need to brush up on my bird in flight skills, as the migration is coming soon!

Awesome shot, Chewy. Nicely done in post, too.

Paul, your landscape shot is showing up full res for me. 10,000pxx x 3500px. Anyone else seeing that or are my plugins screwing with me again?

My favorite of the rolling shots ... kept 8 out of 175, lol, but have a better idea now how to do them.
