Here is the situation:
You have a 6D. You have never felt completely satisfied with it for many reason. Reasons that could include 5DmkIII envy, CF, focus points and overall build etc. It is personal and may or may not make sense to everyone.
Most importantly, you feel you are not getting the most out of your 70-200mm 2.8L II or 85mm f1.2 in some situations.
You have the opportunity to trade in the 6D for a reasonable price and pay the difference on a 5DmkIII. You are completely happy with this potential transaction. Ultimately a loss in original investment, yes, but finally getting into the 5DmkIII you have lusted after.
Here is the question:
With all the recent rumors of a mkIV, sensor/focus technology etc etc. would you pull the trigger on the 5DmkIII or continue to wait, potentially until 2015?
Time is somewhat of an issue, as I want to keep shooting. Also, I would spend the extra money on a MKIV, but would not be comfortable with a price point like the current 1D X.
I'm looking for general thoughts and opinions, because I'm torn.
Many thanks, cheers!
Welcome to CR
You feel you are not getting the most out of the 70-200. Can you give more info on that?
I would say go for the 5D III if you are really not satisfied with the 6D. That will make you happy for the coming period. We don't know if a MKIV will arrive in 2015.
Where I live an occasion 5D MK III is offered for around 2295 euro. In one year from now that might be 1700euro. Still good money. So if the 5D IV will arrive, you can add some good money. But most important, you will be happy with the results of your shooting today until next year while using the 5D MK III.
