Any strong arguments against the 6D in favor of the 5D2?
Well, there are a couple. First, the 5dII has generally been about $400 cheaper in deals, if not more. So, from a price perspective, you usually save cash. That's probably the strongest argument, especially if you don't have need for wifi or GPS. Likewise, if you do any video work, the 5d2 has magic lantern, the 6D does not.

But, beyond that, at worst you are basically getting a slightly improved model with the 6D. With the way Canon has been building their stuff lately, it'll last and repairs will be cheap, because they've taken a much smarter approach to things. In real world terms, I'm not sure you'd see a difference between the 5d2 and 6D unless you shoot a lot in really dark rooms
