Thank you for your reply, but the 6D is out of my budget for a 9/(11)-point, center-only cross-type AF system and I truly need to choose between a 7D or 5D2. Plus, I don't care for the 60D-like simplified rear panel of the 6D. Just does not suit my years of Canon EOS usage.
You mention the AF performance and your need for tack sharp photos in several posts. IMO that completely knocks out the 5D2. The 7D has phenomenal AF and great IQ if you are shooting with strobes when the light gets low, and not relying on high ISO performance.
I still miss my 7D for action, and am eagerly awaiting a 7D2 to pair with my 6D. That said, the center point on the 6D beats the 7D for accuracy, but the only point on the 6D that does that is the center point.
One last consideration is focal lengths, you won't be near as wide with the 7D, but as you have a 20D I'm sure you've already experienced that.
