If you love your 7D, You will hate the 6D. After owning the 7D, I wouldn't want anything less than its AF and the 5D3 is that camera for me IMO. You will have to ditch the Kit lens from the 60D with either camera.
+1 million if you are into tracking fast moving objects subjects mostly.
But if you AF and recompose like I do... the 6D AF might even be better.
It will boil down to what you value more... The 6D will give you less noisy images across the ISO spectrum, and probably better IQ overall. Nice interface with a Tablet.
The 7D is noisier, but better AF points across the frame, it has faster burst.
Consumers/enthusiasts might prefer the improvement of images with the 6D, but pros might give a higher rating to getting a high % of keepers and fast action... might prefer the 7D.
If you DO end up keeping the 7D, then Mt. Spokane's lens list is a very good one. For me the 6D seems very enticing for non-pros, especially with the -3EV center AF point and high ISO performance that not only matches the 5diii, but sneaks past it.
You also forgot DR. It's very important for someone who's doing landscape photography and thus 6D seems a near perfect match for me. But if I have money, I won't hesitate going to 5D3 straight. Though IQ-wise 6D is better (almost negligible), 5D3's AF makes the camera more versatile. Having said that, I don't think 6D's AF will hinder me from getting professional quality photos.
Then get a 5D2 and save the 600$ for a 17-40.
