Why buy a 6D instead of a 5Dmk2?

I've got a 5Dmk2, and I'd like to get another full frame back-up body.  Locally, low actuation 5Dmk2s are selling for around $1400 to $1500.  Used 6ds are selling for around $1800.

Is there a good reason to pay more for the 6D?

P.S. I never buy new; too much good used equipment out there at lower prices.
