I am trying to buy a canon full frame camera. If i Find a Great deal on the 5DIII i will buy it ( great deal mean 1600 or lower). Should i just buy a 6D for around a thousand and wait for the 5D IV? when do you think it will come out and how much will it be? my guess is it would be $3499. Let me know what you think.
It depends on your needs. Do you need an action-capable camera? If so, the 5D3 is preferable to the 6D. If you don't need advanced subject tracking and a wide array of AF sensors, then the 6D is likely the better buy.
You're probably in the ballpark with the Mk4 price, though if they differentiate it enough from the studio models (e.g. if it has better video and substantially better AF, etc.), they may price it at or about the 5Ds level.
Nobody really knows.
If you just want to get into a full frame camera, the 6D is a great option, and will continue to be for some time.
