They are both DSLR's.

With completely different target audiences. The 6D can't do half of what the 7DII will do and the 7DII will do plenty the 6D can't even dream of managing!

They both accept EF-S lenses.

Wrong.

They both have very similar controls.

Wrong.

They both will take very similar photos in maybe 95% of photographic situations.

Wrong again.

The 7D has some features that the 6D does not, and vice versa, but for most people buying a general purpose camera, they mostly do the same job.

Wrong again.

For those that need both there are alternatives available - i.e. 5DIII. But the target groups are as far seperated as they could be from the onset, so the availability of both cameras will *not* create any further division in markets.

You don't know what the 'target groups' are - Canon knows that. I doubt that many who buy a 7D use it exclusively for action photography, nor do those that buy a 6D use it exclusively for studio and landscape work.

The 6D can't do action properly, not even the 5DIII is fully capable to replace a current 7D. Period. The 6D autofocus is whoefully inadaequate for fast moving subjects and the 5DIII lacks speed. Face it, the 6D is [b]not[/b] a valid replacement for a 7D!
