Okay I know one is full frame and the other is not. I mainly do sports photos but also like to dabble into portrait shots so a FF camera is very tempting but at the same breath the 7D does a pretty good job also. I also understand the 7D is overdue for a refresh while the 6D is newer with extra features. I currently have a 1D MKII N as my primary sports tool. As for lenses I do have 24-70 and 70-200 both in MK II version. So help me out here to make an ideal decision.
The 7D is the more versatile. It exceeds the 6D in autofocus flexibility, capture rate, build quality, and "reach" with a given focal length. All important features when shooting sports. The 6D has superior image quality and two stop better high ISO performance when compared with the 7D. The difference in image quality, while a factor to be considered when shooting landscapes, is less so for portrait work. I own both. The 6D comes out for low light conditions and landscape work. The 7D is the all around workhorse.
