If you were happy with the 5D2 the 6D will be an overall improvement. The focusing is much better and the ISO performance and DR is better.

About the A7 I cannot comment as I have not used it but I really doubt there is a 2 stop DR difference between the two. At least not in RAW. I tried Nikon D800 and the 5D3 before buying the 5D and the difference is not that big in RAW. I  Jpg there might be 2 stops but in Raw it is more about half a stop.

Also the Canon is a mature system that you can invest in. The A7 is a nice camera and it really got my attention  but we cannot know how will Sony deal with the system and how many lenses will they make for it.

So I would say go for the 6D.
