I prefer the larger, brighter viewfinder on the 6D and 7D compared with the smaller, dim viewfinder on the T2i Rebel I started with. But, to each his (or her) own. As others have suggested, an eyepiece extender may help.

AlanF, I went to Best Buy today to check this beast out, per your recommendation. Yes, it's much smaller/lighter than my 5D3 and even appreciably smaller than my T3i--but it's much larger than my S90 (my main travel/back-up camera). Since I'm looking to upgrade my 10MP S90 to the newer 12MP S110, I'm wondering how the S110's larger 1/1.7" sensor compares to the smaller 1/2.3" sensor found in the 12MP SX50. Do you have any feel for how one would perform relative to the other in low-light/high-noise environments? I love the idea of having a 50X zoom, but hate the thought of losing pocketability. These trade offs are inevitable, I know, but a definitively better sensor on one vs the other might make the decision easier. Thanks.
I have the money to sell my 400D + 15-85 and buy a 6D with an used 24 - 105, but my wife will kill me
Thanks for all the info
I plan on going to Las Vegas, Bryce canyon, Yellowstone, Red Rock Arches, Grand Canyon. Should be able to get some great pictures.
The EG-S is great and I leave it in my 5DMkII all the time. Viewfinder brightness is comparable to that of the 7D and I don't ever find the viewfinder to be too dark. IMHO these FF camera's should come with the EG-S as standard.How does the EG-S screen work exactly? I'm only familiar with the split prism manual focus screen.
I saw the headline "new bigger savings from B&H". The lens I purchased yesterday, the 24-70 f2.8 ii is now $2099 vs $2049 I paid yesterday. How is this better??? My attempt at posting this earlier was blocked.
7D is a heavy camera. How about bringing a T4i
The 50/1.8 and 28-135 aren't really worth keeping in your collection, IMO. Your plan leaves you with no UWA lens - are you ok with that (how much do you shoot the 10-22mm between 10-15mm)?
The 70-200 II is great for portraits on FF, but you might consider a fast portrait prime (85/1.8, Sigma 85/1.4, 85L, 135L).
