Wouldn't it say pre-order only or whatever the 6D now says at B&H?? yet this says Back-ordered? Definitely smells funny to me...

If your doing landscapes, a full frame camera is the best. It has more resolving power that smaller sensored camera with Equivalent MP count.
If you have the budget a MK3 is the best.
If you have less to spend a 5d2 is the best.
If your strapped for cash, A 5Dc is a excellent choice and still a stunning camera.
Pick your poison.
I just got a 5D3 and I'll tell you why. I actually wanted to upgrade at about time time the 7D came out but I really wanted to go full frame. I couldn't quiet bring myself to get the 5D2 because I wanted the AF and frame rate of the 7D. I basically froze in my decision then soon heard about the 5D3 so I waited... over a year!
I got my 5D3 this week and am thrilled to bits with it. It's everything I wanted it to be. The best of the 5D2 and the best of the 7D in one camera plus a little bit more. That's not to say I didn't hesitate when I saw the price of the 5D3 however.
If your main interest is landscapes then I actually think you'll appreciate a full frame camera more than a crop. And if fast focus isn't so important then maybe a 5D2 will be perfect for you. I like to shoot some sports which is why the 5D3 AF is so important to me.
Saying that, if you also shoot wildlife then maybe the 7D will be best for you as you can get longer reach with your current lenses and fire a burst of shots off to try to capture 'the moment'.
You know, you could always get a 5D2 and a 7D for the price of a 5D3. Then you could have a landscape camera and a wildlife camera. You'd never need to swap a lens when you're out and about again!
Do you do much low light work? If so the 5D3 starts to be the more attractive option.
