Have you told us what it is you like to shoot? Do you do this professionally...meaning that your livelihood depends on your photography and, therefore, your equipment?
For general needs, I would select a 24-70mm f/4L IS: it has the new IS system and unless you are a wedding photographer, I think it is better as a walk around lens. You might find that for low light situations, you might add a wider aperture lens like the Canon 50mm f/1.2L.
If you do not need the reach or the speed of the new 7D II (10 fps), then I would sway you to go with the 5D MK III. It is every bit as responsive as the 1Dx and gives you more pixels to work with. It also have a more durable shutter and body. It can do 1/8000 second exposures; the 6D can only to 1/4000. The 5D has a respectable 6fps shutter drive which is very respectable and can be used for sports. The 6D not so much; you will be very frustrated tracking anything with a 6D.
The Canon 5D III is the best all around DSLR on the market. It does most things well and the image quality is stunning.
If video is important to you, then you should be looking at a 70D.
Hope this helps.
