The 6d has bigger eyeballs and is thus better in low light. That's why I suggested trading the 7d for a 6d.

BIGGER PIXELS

~ 6.54 vs 3.75 MICRONS

Better low-light and dynamic range (all else equal)

HIGHER EFFECTIVE ISO

2,340 vs 1,135 ISO

Take photos in low light with less noise

A bigger lens with a bigger entrance pupil is the bigger eyeball.  Larger pixels only waste resolution, and larger sensors only have a larger area, which requires a bigger lens and shallower DOF to get more light from the same FOV.

Sensors and lenses are teams, in real world photography.

Pixel-level and image-level comparisons at the same ISO are not real world photography.
