Once you can frame your subject into a portion of 6D VF that is not too small, 6D IQ wins hands down especially in low light. APS-C will still have an advantage in small birds that you'd have to crop 6D files heavily.

I brought 5D3 with the same 100-400L into the zoo in the past Sunday. Compared to previous sets done from my 60D, I found 5D3 photos are sharper despite I need to crop more. FF 6D/5D3 withstands cropping much better than APS-C.

The lions stayed at far end of the rock. I have to crop around 60% but it's still sharp even I cropped to 100% that is something my 60D cannot match.

Meh....

This is a 100% crop from the 7D. Far from soft or mushy!

Not very sharp and detailed either.  A bit of soft and mushy, and a bit overblown at bottom half of the head from what I see.  Since its FL is only 210mm, so 6D/5D3 in this case with 100-400L can beat it hands down in IQ - sharpness and details.  Show us wings in shadows for example that would see difference clearly.

LOL... your blind my friend! Did you view the original? Hands down smands down.... you're too funny!

Seriously the photo is simply not that sharp and detailed – bottom half of head is a bit overblown,

It's not overblown, tilt your screen a bit. Heck look at your own lion shot, do you see an overblown part on the female? Besides that has nothing to do with sharpness. Plus it is a 100 percent crop! Yours is not!! It is sharp, especially considering a 1.4 tc was used, look at the original. Also how do you know how much detail is actually in this snakes head? You obviously don't! You did not see it. I'm not going to argue with you because it's futile and that is exactly what you want.

the eye doesn't have much textual detail either, neither on skin and tongue. Since 210mm from 100-400L is not FL limited in this shot, we have every reason to believe 6D/5D3 will generate noticeably better IQ without requiring any cropping.

Sure you have every reason to satisfy your photo but I just express my opinion as an observer not trying to be funny.
