till now have only 550d, with some good lens like tokina 11-16, canon 100-400, 50mm1.8 and canon 18-135, now i basically am an hobbiest photographer who travels a lot and love photography, so now i have made up my mind to go full frame as i miss the low light photography in the evenings on my travel. i have two options-

1) i buy a 5d mark-3 with kit lens (24-105),  and keep my 550 d as second body for wild life and birding as 100-400 will give me more reach and i can use my tokina also.

2) i go for 6D with kit lens (24-105) or if you guys strongly feel (24-70 f2.8) and replace my 550 D with 7D body only , that way  i can do some good birding and wildlife on my 7D and low light on my 6D.

3)sorry one more option , just stay put and wait for 7D mark 2...

would really appreciate some help

Option two. but wait for the 7D2 to come or just keep 550d.

6D has better high iso performance, lighter body. For most part, we use one AF point and for that part, 5D3 is marginally faster in AF. 24-70/2.8 is of course strongly recommended by we feel you will be much better by using a prime lens especially the 40/2.8 stm which is so small and fits beautifully on my 5d3 and all my friend's 6Ds (who, after comparing my 5D3 and 6d). If price is right 24-70/4 is a good replacement. You can also go for a Sigma 35/1.4 and Sigma 84/1.4 combo. For myself, a 40/2.8 and a 100/2.8L can serve most of my purpose
