I've got a 6d and a 70d.  If I don't need speed or a bunch of autofocus points hands down the image quality of the 6d is superior.  Because the non center points are not cross type AF points it's not as good as the 70d for BIF.  I think for the most part you can get by with the AF on the 6d. It certainly has limitations but you adjust and the iq is astounding.

I think the 7dII will have the potential to be closer in price to the 5DIII. ...

5D III price dropping like a stone.... 6 mo ago on eBay used 5D III for 2500+, now new 5D III for that price point...

(Don't know I'm still in as I didn't post for some time...)

I have 5D3 + 6D and use the latter almost only with uwa.  Agree with others than 6D with new 16-35 IS is hard to beat for landscapes. 7D2 will surely be a fine camera but imo with a somewhat different usage.

i have a 6d and a 70d, in good light there is not much iq difference. the 6d is of course much better at high iso. paired with the new 16-35is you have the ability to shoot landscapes at small apertures in low light. if you are normally shooting in good light it doesn't matter much. below is a comparison between the 6d + 16-35 f/4 (16mm) and the 70d + sigma 8-16 (10mm) i have taken about 100 comparison shots just to see what the difference is and in good light you have to look really close to see anything and then sometimes it's not clear. don't get caught up thinking there is some massive iq difference between the formats that just jumps off the screen at you.
