im just making the point that i dont see myself as an entry level camera kind of guy. obviously if it does its job thats fine, i just dont like that tag.
It's all relative. The Canon C100 is an 'entry-level' cinema camera, even though it costs about the same as the EOS 1D X flagship dSLR.
The 6D is Canon's entry-level full frame camera, but that doesn't make it an entry level camera any more than being the least expensive Ferrari makes the Ferrari California an 'entry-level' sportscar.
yeah all very true and you are right of course, dont you get that feeling though that people who are into cameras and photography look down on the 6d a bit? it doenst bother me but i get a that feeling a little, for some reason everyone loves the 7 series, or at least accept it.
They are tools. I doubt people who are "into" photography look down on it. As I stated before the 6D is an amazing tool, nothing more and in all honesty if/when my 5d2 dies I will consider a 6d as a backup FF. Three reasons: Good price, Similar IQ and amazing low light performance to my 5d3.
On the 7D front.. I know at least 5 amateur sports photographers who got their careers off the ground using that body and two event/wedding photographers. I got 2.5 years, a 25 foot fall into a snow bank (survived), sunk to the bottom of a river in a pelican box for an hour, A cat who seems to think EVERY time I went to change a lens on the camera at home he HAD to be right there, dropped into a still warm fire pit on a hike I did and close to 215k shutter out of that body. The damn thing was a TANK and I squeezed every penny out of the body. It is at Canon right now being prepared for a proper 7D funeral... Shot into the sun and returned with a minor scuff on the body in perfect working order.
The 7D is indeed beast. Mine have been rained on, snowed on, sanded on, saltwater wave washed, and tortured in as many ways else as humanly possible. And they still survive! But, you have the award: "Most Damage done to a 7D"!
