It will be effectively the same. They probably though "Our 6D can't have as many megapixels as the 5D's...lets take a couple away"

I think the puzzle here - to me at least - is the 20 MP sensor. This is the first usage of this sensor, meaning that they developed an entirely new sensor for a lower budgeted FF camera. Seems strange they didn't just use the same sensor from the 5D2/3. I wonder how it will perform when compared to the 5D3's older sensor, as it would be silly to spend money to develop a sensor inferior to what you already have, but would infuriate people to make the $2100 FF camera have significantly better IQ than the new #3200 FF camera...
