What are your guys thoughts?

I would go the 6D.

I borrowed and tested a 60Da one night and while the improved red sensitivity was nice I wasn't blown away by it, and I was disappointed with the higher than expected noise levels (certainly no better than my 7D).

A little while after that I borrowed a 6D for two nights and immediately was completely blown away by it's low noise level. I strongly disliked the buttons/user controls design, but that's something you'd learn to live with.
