Really? The advantages that the 7D has (reach, frame rate and more points in the AF) allow it to take photos in just a few situations where the 6D won't. The advantages that the 6D has (lens choice at the wide end, utilising shallower DOF, low light ability, low light AF) allow it to take photos in just a few situations where the 7D won't. 95% is a guess, but in all likely hood in the right range.

So there are significant differences that mean that the cameras have different target market segments, so you yourself contradict your "one size fits all" argument!

The 6D can do action 'properly' in the hands of a competent photographer.

A competent photographer will not chose the 6D for that job. Period. That's what makes him competent. Only the haphazard amateur would try and more often than not fail utterly.

not even the 5DIII is fully capable to replace a current 7D. Period.

I would think the 5DIII wins quite a lot and loses a little. It has a much more capable AF system, it loses 2FPS, but the main thing in action photography is learning your timing,

There are a lot of things where you can't predict the timing and thus you will never get the shot with the slower camera.

The 6D autofocus is whoefully inadaequate for fast moving subjects

Again, not optimised but focusses fast and sure with the centre point

Which will yield a bad composition in 9 out of 10 cases. The 7D can use all it's AF points in light when you barely manage to get a usable exposure time for action photography.

Whoever thinks that a camera that can only be focused with the center AF point is good for action photography needs to have his brain examined - if there still is something available for such an examination...

, in worse light than the 7D will with any point.

Again you fail to see the point that in motion rich environments the 6D will not cut it, not today, not tomorrow, not ever!
