I'm thinking of shifting the Sony A7r myself, from the 5D Mark II.
I'm quite happy with my 5D Mark II for landscape, although I'd love more dynamic range and less pattern noise. But it still does the job well. The A7r gives me more dynamic range and nicely handled noise. But there's drawbacks too. No camera is perfect, so I think we'll always wish for more and complain about things, but in the end the 'best' brand for certain things always changes anyways. For ISO it was Canon, then Nikon, now Sony. Give it another couple of years and it'll be someone again or someone else.
At least, unlike switching to Nikon, switching to or adding an A7r will allow you to use all your Canon lenses (unless you insist on/want/prefer fast AF) which, in my experience, seem to make images that look at least as good as they do on Canon bodies. For me, that's part of the appeal of good mirrorless bodies - leaving aside (fast) AF, you can use just about any lens you want.
That said, out of curiosity - how often do you find yourself wanting more DR and/or better low ISO noise performance?
