@ Wildfire, The NEC P232W-BK is a totally different resolution and pixel size class.
If you have a 5D Mark III, there wouldn't really be any reason to buy or have a 6D, unless you shot with a backup camera and didn't want to spend the resources to buy another 5D Mark III. Pretty much all the wedding photogs I know shoot with a backup camera, so this makes sense. That's really the only reason I can see in owning both, and I don't think in the real world the 6D offers much anything over the 5D3. However, I can see advantages of the 5D3 over the 6D
I would say that it makes most sense to have two bodies of the same kind if two bodies are needed for the same purpose.
However the usability is quite different: joystick vs. multicontroller, right-hand control vs. both sides, single- vs. dual button layout. When I compared the 6d to the 5d3 in a shop I had trouble with the 5d3 control because I'm used to my 60d (= 6d control) - so I don't know how shooting both in parallel would be.
