Re: Camera to satisfy "action" needs: 6D or 70D?

I feel like I have a pretty good grasp on the IQ differences between the two, and especially the ISO advantage of FF and the 6D in general. What I'm really looking to find out is...

I'm wondering if upgrading to either a 70D or 6D would provide further improvements (in AF acquisition/speed).

My question is - is the AF speed of the 6D fast enough - especially the outer points - to keep up with a toddler?

My question here is - is the speed in acquiring focus improved with the 70D over the 7D (meant to say 60D)? Also, are the outer AF points at least as good (or better) than the outer points of the 60D (I assume they're better but want to make sure)? Does Al Servo work any better with the 70D?

But I'm really curious about the ability of the 6D to keep up with my daughter as the IQ improvements are also important.

Any help with this?

Thanks!
