the rookie mistake is buying the wrong gear and finding out it won't really work for what you needed it for. I'd consider saving up a little longer for the 70-200 2.8 IS II.

I would take 5D II out of the equation for one reason, fixed auto ISO @ 400 in "M" mode.
6D or 5D III
A. Take 5D III if you want to have the best AF system
B. Take 6D if you plan to shoot center AF with slightly less precise
I think the one main issue with the earlier releases of the camera was the "light leak issue". Just do a google search on what serial number ranges were affected ad compare your serial number (on the bottom of your camera).
"Issue", which affects your metering if you have your lens cap on while shining a flashlight at the top of your camera. I wound't worry too much about that, unless that's your typical shooting scenario.
Hasn't anyone noticed the smile icon in my post ?I beg to differ. The 24-70 f/4L IS will go nicely with the 70-200 f/4L IS. Only 24-70 2.8L II goes nicely with the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. You have to match your lenses or they will feel uncomfortableDoes not make any sense to me. I have various lenses with various f stops and they all go 'nicely together'.
Neither to me - it depends on what you want. If a shallow dof is required f2.8 on a wider lens is more important than on a tele lens. If the lens is required to be "fast" for low-light shooting it's the other way around.
