A good deal. I scored one for 2499$ and another for 2999$.

If I understand this correctly, RLPhoto could have been referring to a buyer's remorse over a $1K once they come to grips with the 6D. At one point you are bound to feel the pangs of having an outdated AF system.
Well, all I can say it took me years to get to the limits of the 60d af system (and to be sure it's the camera's fault and not mine) - of course if using servo af a lot it's another story, but for general stills shooting the 6d af system might be outdated, but still perfectly usable. And we have to remember that the 5d3/1dx af has to be accompanied by the latest Canon lenses to really shine esp. concerning precision.
The 6D is a microwaved 5D2, which was already a re-cooked 5D, which had its original serving as a 20D. (In terms of actual camera performance, not IQ )
If you want a better performing camera, 5D3 is the best route. It won't limit you later on like the 6D could with its AF performance.
One question: are you making this judgment after having used both cameras, or just because you think this is true?
I can tell you from having used a MKII professionally extensively that in many ways the 6D is a big step upwards from the MKII. I have not owned or used a MKIII, although I have extensively researched it. The MKIII is without the superior camera overall, but even that is not straightforward. There is some give and take with both bodies, and, for me, I concluded that the "give" with the 6D right now was worth the "take".
The truth of the matter is that the 6D actually has more modern technology than any other Canon camera at the moment, even if the form factor and AF are not premium.
#not impressed. :\
