The 6D is a repackaged 5D2, which is a repackaged 20D w/ a FF sensor.

Save your dough and buy a used 5D2+glass or a 5D3.

If you love the 7D, you'll hate the 5D2 or the 6D.

Really? Remember what the OP wants the camera for:

"I'm trying to work in the industry of wedding and portrait photography mainly but on the side fashion"

The 5D II has been very successful in these areas, far more so than the 7D, and the 6D has the added strength of low-light AF that actually works - maybe even better than the Mk III. I love my 7D, but I love both the Mk II and the 6D a lot more!

Save the cash and get the mk3. It won't limit you later on.

I wouldn't necessarily argue against that, though.

I also remember the biggest complaints from others and myself for just about any shooting was the AF. Unless of course, you like the 20D AF.

The 5D2 was only more successful because it was FF+resolution, and for no other reason. The 7D is a better camera and if you liked everything about the 7D, you find the 5D2 archaic.

50,000 with my 5Dc, 7D, and 5D3's together.

The 50mm is usable for portraits, but the 100mm F/2 or 135L is ideal.

Sorry, but when you're buying the equipment that most 5D Mark III's owners are, and like myself, who paid $3499, the differential is meaningless.  $2599 vs $3499?  Who cares?  Not only that, I've been using it since early April and I bought it new, not refurbished.  That's 8 months of use of it.  Do you wait 10 years to buy a car just because the price comes down?  How many people buy a brand new car and then 3 years later, go, "Dang that car company!  That makes me so mad I paid $24,000 instead of $18,000!!"?  This is ridiculous.  Feel bad for hungry children in Africa, not people who paid $900 more for a DSLR in April.

More like $1500.  ::)

Oh my... This makes me feel even more bad about early adopters.

Lenses / Re: 50mm upgrade or 85mm coverage?
« on: December 31, 2012, 09:59:21 PM »
I have found the 85L a strange focal length for me. It's not quite normal but not quite tele. It will melt the background but still leave some information.

Overall, I'd probably never own an 85L since my 135L is just so good. My 24, 50, and 135 kit are all good, separated, and unique focal lengths.

I'd recommend just to continue to use the 135L.

I use that combo all the time. Simply stunning.

There is nothing like canon primes. Fantastic.

Carl Zeiss, Nikon, Leitz, Sneider,   some Sigma, Tamron
there are fantastic primes out there and the smallest problem I have is to argue for or against the Canon because I have several tools to choose.
Happy new year

I will admit, if zeiss made AF lenses for canon, I wouldn't own any canon lenses.

But since they don't, canon is my choice for uber primes.

I would argue that the 135L is the best portrait lens under the 6K$ 200 f/2L. It's fantastic and is a truly legendary lens that continues to amaze me when I use it to its fullest capability.

Dare I say, it's equal or better than the 85L II for pure portraiture.

The only thing possible to improve on this lens is a reasonable f/1.8 aperture and IS. If this lens were made, I'd lose complete interest in a 70-200 for my bag.

2x 5D3s
Misc flash stuff.

That's pretty much it for my uses.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: should I sell my 7d?
« on: December 30, 2012, 08:40:57 PM »
Keep both APS-C and FF camera's and slowly decide if its worth keeping the APS-C camera around. If not, Sell the stuff you don't want.

I eventually sold my 7D and bought another 5D3. I have little desire to shoot crop unless the 7D2 has much better IQ.

I've used the 85LII on the 5D3. It was fantastic on all the cross-type AF points and the normal AF points were sketchy.

The D600 is a better developed camera but canon just has a better lens selection.

There is nothing like canon primes. Fantastic.
