There's no question that the 7D is noisier but the difference is overblown most of the time

DxO measures the ISO/noise difference between the 6D and 7D at two full ISO stops.
That is, the 6D totally blows out the 7D. So, I guess it could be said that the 7D is overblown.

Well, I guess if you are doing landscape photography at 3200iso and up, at 20x30, then yes, it'll matter a bit.  At 100 to 800 iso, it wont.

It's not just about noise but dynamic range as well.

And color tonality, sharpness and details especially in shadows like these two that their wings are in shadows completely. 5D3 still can reveal details well after 2-stop pulling while Canon 18mp APS-C espeically 7D in this case will be plunged in noises and banding if you pulled, or have to apply strong NR that will effectively smear details.

FF 5D3 shows feather details nicely
