6D vs 5D2 vs 5D1 for TS/Landscape ONLY

Hi all,

Since there are no viable tilt-shift options for Pentax, I am looking to move to a different system (ONLY) for my Tilt-shift and landscape photography. The Mk1 24mm TS goes for less than £600 and a 5D mark1 goes for £500. For use with the 24mm TS and maybe a 17-40, would the 5D2 or 6D offer major benefits when shooting at ISO 50-200, and MF? Does the 5D give acceptable IQ, and how does it compare with an APS-C like the 7D, and is the 5D to 5Dii jump worth it?
