Guys which one is better "Canon 6D" or "Sony A7" ?? :S

Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

Unfortunately it's not so simple to answer that, at least not exhaustively. I would advise focusing on what's fit for purpose rather than better. The Canon 1D X is a very good camera and arguably "better" than the 5D Mark III but I'd be absolutely content with using the latter for studio shoots as the 1D X's feature set is nigh-on overkill for that situation.

The 6D has a lot more lenses available compared to the A7 (without an adapter) but the A7 has arguably better autofocus for fast moving subjects and its articulated screen can be beneficial when shooting from awkward angles.

Even with the paper specs, they can only tell you so much. Is it practical for you to visit a photography, CE or department store to handle and try out both cameras?

DSLRs: Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Canon EOS 70D
CSC: Canon EOS M3
Lenses: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, EF 50mm f/1.8 II, EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM, Canon EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, Canon EF-M 22mm f/2.0 STM
