Good series. I like the rhythm in the first part of the set.

I could imagine that eventually dSLRs will fade out, in the sense that dSLR style bodies would no longer be equipped with a mirror. With technologies improving, I think that eventually EVFs will have an unobservable lag time and resolution instistinguishable from an optical VF. By that time, EVFs may be preferred over OVFs because they can offer extra features such as focus peaking, "live view", histogram overlays , etc etc. and without the mirror, higher fps rates should be achievable. (Who on CR would not welcome an 1DM with 24 fps?)

Many may think that OVF will always be superior to EVFs because they are today, but a decade  ago, many also thought that film would always be superior to digital.

I do not think this is driven by declining sales figures as in the OP, but more by ever advancing tech.

I use an off camera GPS tracker when on trips. There I have to download A-GPS settings from internet, which are valid for a week or so, to get very fast acquisition (time to first fix). Without such download, acquisition takes a fair bit longer. Would such method exist for the 6D as well?

There are pro's and con's for having GPS in or off camera:
- in camera: you can never forget your tracker and you get the coordinated directly into your exif.
- off camera: you can record your entire route, also when not taking photos and you do not drain your battery doing it.

I am happy with my Dell 2713. Decent color reproduction, good resolution, energy efficient, affordable and good range of connections.

Here's another.  Wandering Glider, also shot with 5Diii and 180 Macro.

This one my favorite? Excellent capture in flight!

With your SLR you would be able to shoot RAW and adjust the whitebalance in post (there is now a color cast in the sky). You would also be able to use a shallower depth of field to get a softer background.

My recommendation would be ff as well. With the shallow DoF it gives you new creative possibilities (the statement that better gear does not give you better photos is not true in my opinion).

Depending on the budget you can choose between the 6D and 5D3. I would certainly not recommend to sell off your 24-70 II and use primes only.

For macro work, a good flash bracket, a good tripod and a macro rail can be good investments.

Great shot; especially the composition with the natural frame from snow!

Snow bunting (European). 70D + Canon 400 5.6L

Canon General / Re: Selection help pls

I would remove the 1st one with the zebras, to me it is the least appealing one. I particularly like #2 and #3; to my eye these are the best ones. #5 has the same atmosphere and although it is no a 'landscape' but an 'urban' picture fits quite well in the set. #4 with the smoking boy fits less well with the rest. Topic-wise #1 fits well with 2 and 3, but the atmosphere is much different (although it may also be the small size of the posted picture that influences my feeling), mostly because it is after-dark.
