Of the three cameras you listed I'd point at the R6. It's a 2nd generation Canon mirrorless with the latest generation AF and latest generation Canon sensor tech.

The 1D3 you cited is NOT a bargain. First, you can get a used 1Ds3 for $500-$700 with low shutter count if you are patient and that's a WAY better camera. Second, the camera can no longer be serviced by Canon, Third, the 1D3 was known for poor AI-servo behavior (moving subjects), which was resolved in the 1D4.

Perhaps the current deals on a 5DS should also be considered? It's the closest to the form factor and controls of your existing 5D, so it will likely be the most comfortable. The current prices are a terrific bargain.

You do not mention what kind of photography you do.
