I'm in the same boat with IQ my main priority, but after lots of thought I decided to not give up the reach advantage of a crop. My current camera's a T1i. I'd probably love a 6D, but my 100 and 200 primes are perfect for indoor volleyball.
Comparing my shots with those in Sports Illustrated, for example, I'm doing pretty well. I think it's a combo of GREAT lenses and learning how to use my camera. Keep in mind I don't know what I'm talking about, but I have a sense that using the best lens(es) possible and constantly improving technique are more important than the body (as long as your body's at least pretty good) and that the main benefit might be high ISO performance. My T1i isn't horrible, but isn't too bad at 6400 and I think the good lenses make up for much of that in the IQ that they offer.
So I've decided to wait for the 7D II. I was going to maybe get a 6D for general photography and a 7D II for sports, but I'd rather focus on one camera and learn everything possible about it than potentially getting confused by two complicated bodies.
Again, I have no idea what I'm saying, but it seems to possibly make sense.
