 the 6D offers a liveview mode, not the 5D

Boy oh boy... doing TSE without liveview is not something I envy.  It would be like using a view camera after you dropped the ground glass in mud.  Upgrading to a 6D in that case would be the best thing possible.  I sometimes shoot my 90TSE with the optical viewfinder for people pictures with extended DOF, but with moving targets missing focus placement is a given, and not something I lose sleep about.  Trying to nail down a landscape with focus, diffraction, wind, changing light, and exposure conspiring against me and a DOF-non-accurate tunnel-vision finder... the difference between the 5D and 6D couldn't be more stark.
