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

Goodlucks
what do you mean, less precise ? that 5dmk3 AF center points is more sensitive than 6D?
it is not if you look at the spec.

He said "precise" not "sensitive".  Two different words... you can tell because they use a different sequence of letters.

ok , what does he meant with slightly less precise?

It means under normal light or even with decent light, single-cross type is less accurate than dual-cross type. Especially when you shoot at moving subject(s) or in AI servo.

I had the same choice on my lap. An aging 5Dc and either the 5D2 or 5D3?

I was never impressed enough with the 5D2 as an overall camera but the d700 felt like a complete package. The d700 had everything except video and resolution from my 5Dc and that it can't take EF lenses. :P

So I skipped the mk2 cameras entirely and went straight into a mk3. It's all the camera I could ever need and won't be outgrowing it any time soon.
I'm with you Rev.  Decided to skip the 5d2 and the 7d2 and went straight to the 5D MK III.  Very happy I did!  Now, I still have my 7D, but unless it's a wicked crazy upgrade, 7D2 probably won't happen for me... I'm liking the 5D III!
