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?

Yes but smaller part of sunlight beam compared to a much bigger part in the sneak head.  It's much complicated light in my lion shot in near noon contrast sunlight and shade/shadow.  I had to pull shadows quite a bit actually.

Besides that has nothing to do with sharpness. Plus it is a 100 percent crop! Yours is not!!

It definitely affects sharpness if that part is white-out therefore lost details. I will show 100% cropped. It's already a bit over 60% cropped.

It is sharp, especially considering a 1.4 tc was used, look at the original.

On my standard it's not tack sharp. What lens used? From 70-200mm? A bare 200mm without TC certainly is sharper than with TC. Also this photo doesn't have sufficient DOF that only a small part of head is in focus that also affects overall sharpness.

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.

I know snake heads could have high details, LOL.

Not sure what you tried to argue.  If you want to say 7D/60D can take good and sharp photos, yes I agreed as my own 60D generated many good photos.  But no doubt 6D/5D3 generates better, sharper and more detailed photos if no FL limit as in this snake case with 100-400L lens for example.  So your photo even under that circumstance as you said, it's not bad but just not great in IQ.

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.

It is kind of hard to convince crop camera users about the difference in IQ with full frame. I am surprised that this old argument is still going on.

I made a mistake in buying Nikon D7100. After just one day of outing I've already put it up for sale. I don't know what I was thinking. I made the same mistake when 7D first came out. It is kind of depressing editing crop camera images next to a full frame. The difference is night and day unless you shoot ISO 100 all day.
