Actually, I did not buy my first 7D because of its low-light capability, but for birds, wildlife, pets, and youth sports. I use my personal cameras at work, and found that my 7D was a better night-time camera than my 40D, so I eventually acquired a second 7D. To try full-frame, I acquired a pre-owned 5D, with controls very much like the 40D. Unfortunately, the original 5D has no weather-sealing.

Regarding weather sealing, all these models, 7D, 6D and 5D series are not true weather sealed compared to 1D/1Ds/DX series. 7D and 5D3 are weather resistant (Canon said it's at old film 1Dv level?) while 5D2/5D1/60D/6D are in a bit lesser level. But old 5Dc doesn't have dust removal feature so not dust sealed. Dust removal feature is not directly related to weather sealing such as old 1DIII is weather sealed but not as good dust removal feature as compared even to 60D. Therefore I need to clean 1DIII more often than 60D (that only did once after more than two years' usage).

According to Canon the 6D's 'dust and drip proofing protection around control buttons and along outer cover seams has been upgraded from the EOS 5D Mark II and is equivalent to the protection on the EOS 5D Mark III.'
