For me, it was a matter of pure laziness. I've had 3 (or was it 4) Corsair 
II's. Every one was a great rig and I loved them. The dual receive with the 
external VFO was wonderful. However, I operate all modes and QSY required me to 
spin the knob from one band edge to the other (I told you I was lazy). I really 
like the convenience of direct frequency entry (it's great on split when the DX 
gives you a freq or a shift) and the fact that each band button saves 2 
frequencies with filter settings, mode, etc. So if I want to QSY form 20 to 15, 
one or 2 taps of the 15 button puts me there in the mode I want.

Both Corsair II and Omni VI+ are awesome rigs. See, it boils down to operator 
preference (or laziness).
