I haven't visited this section in a long time. Just remembered this thread.

I ended up buy a 6d shortly after this thread. I took it on a trip and took some good pictures with it. After that I didn't get a chance to use it for almost half a year so I sold it. I ended up regretting it as I now want a camera. So now I'm looking to pick up a 6d again. I'm still thinking about springing for the 5dIII though.

Here are some pictures I took with the 6d on the trip.

if it's any consolation, 5D3s are on sale quite often. Pick one up!

That's what I'm thinking too. The one thing I missed was the joystick. Also, I remember trying to take a picture of a friend's kid on a swing and couldn't focus on her face for the life of me. I'm waiting for a good sale and jump on a 5D3.

Well, that's a good reason, but none of those pix that you showed us would have been any better with a 5D MkIII. BTW, great pix.

Thank you, and I agree. I figured if I get the 5DIII I would have more reason to go out and shoot action stuff.

Cool. I have both bodies and use the 6D for indoor, low-light stuff and the 5D MkIII for everything else. If you can afford to, keep the 6D. It's still the better low light rig.

Perhaps in the future I can get and keep both.

Just saw that quite a few nice deals came around this week. I think the 6D was on sale, but now that the 7D MKII is out, I'm waiting to see what the verdict is on that one.
