I just came back from a trip to Asia and I have finally had it with the AF on the 5DII in low light (6400 ISO type low light). So can I save some $ by getting 6D or do I just need to get the 5DIII. I am thinking 5DIII at this point but want to check before committing. Thanks

What camera do I have? I rather you look at my photos www.flickr.com/photos/gavinz

If low light photography is your primary concern, go with the 6D and save yourself some money. If you shoot a lot of fast motion and use AI Servo alot for sports and such, go with the 5D mkIII.  If you are a still life or landscape photographer the 5D mkIII isn't going to give you any real advantage over the 6D.
