I'm in the same situation, but shooting stills. The reason I'm waiting to save up the extra money for the 5D3 instead of buying the 6D right now
- 100% viewfinder, I love this with the 7D as well, what you frame is what you get, no more cropping needed.
- Controls on both sides of the LCD for the 5D3. They are in pretty much the same location, so it's easy to swich between bodies and keep both. The 6D has no controls on the left
- The joystick on the 5D3, yes I know the 6D has the clickwheel thingy, but I love the joystick on the 7D
- focus points. The 7D is very good at tracking things and switching focus point to where you want it with the joystick, so I expect the same from an even more expensive body, not the reduced focus point set the 6D offers.
-I'd love to have the remote wifi shoot function, but on the other hand, how often is that really used? I got the 600D for the swivel screen as well, thinking it'd be great for odd-angle work, but I tend never to use it in practice, except for making the odd video of the kids school play.
