Which camera body to get rid of?

Just got an R6 Mark II last week. Loving it so far!

Do I sell my 6D Mark II, or my 5D mark III.

Thinking the 6D Mark II, as I find the 5d Mark II feels/shoots better. Always found it was my go-to between the two. Thoughts are appreciated!

It depends on how you use your camera.  The 5D3 has a better build. It also has a better viewfinder and more overall AF points. 

The 6D2 has more (45 vs 41) cross type AF points, and boasts 27 f/8 AF points compared to only one on the 5D3.  The 6D2 also has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS.

Such a hard choice.  Yes indeed, how do you use your camera.

As nice as the 5D3 is....  its time to let it go...  (if it were me)..  I appreciate an articulating screen, and I'm a BT, Wi-Fi and GPS kind of user when I've got them onboard.  🙂  My 6D2 can't compare to my R5 C, but it rarely failed to grab and lock focus quickly.  It also worked well with 3rd party glass, and will always be one of my favorite bodys.
