Help me upgrade my 550d

You did, AFAIK.  The specs for the external taggers mention location and cardinal direction, the 6D specs mention only location.

Same boat as you with a fairly similar kit (I have the 500D).  I can wait for the 6D as I also think the 5DIII overkill and I can thus not justify the price.  I also do not care for those added features, but I do understand more pro orientated users' need for it.

From all my reading here and questions asked, I think full frame is the way to go, so I cannot wait.  So I will also sell the 17-50 and 11-16

I went from a 550D to a 7D too for the same reason as OP. I kept missing shots due to the slowness. I adore my 7D, but sadly since I got the 5D II, it has been mostly unused. Glad you chose to go with the 5D III, you'll appreciate it in the long run!
