Canon 6D Mkii owners, help please

Time to retire my 5DMkii after 10 years. Looking to find a new camera to work with my Canon lenses, in particular 85mm 1.4, 50m 1.4, 70-200m 2.8 which I use for portraits. I like the look of the 6D II with the flip out screen for video.

Read some poor reviews though about it . . focus points only around the centre, no focus joy stick, forced to use live view only to get decent focusing etc. As I shoot a lot of portraits this concerns me. I want a decent upgrade now we’re approaching 2020.

In the real world though, how does this camera actually work with shallow dofs with respect to keeper rate? Or should I buy the Sony 7iii which is not much more price wise and supposedly has the ultimate focusing system. Much appreciated in advance.
