EOS Bodies / Re: 6D or 5D Mk II
« on: September 17, 2012, 03:52:34 PM »
I'm considering picking up either the 6D or 5D Mk II, which camera would you expect to be better? How many 5D Mk II owners would swap their camera for the 6D? Are there any advantages the 5D Mk II holds over the 6D?

If you are in the UK, I was looking at the 5D Mk iii or the 6D. The UK price of the 6D is £1800 (delivery before xmas) and then saw Digital Rev (Hong Kong) have them for £2080, free delivery and they pay the TAX. £280 of my maths seemed like a lot more camera for the money.

5D Mkiii ordered, awaiting delivery!!

I'm not a Pro and after reading about the new 6D I'm left wondering if anyone uses GPS on their camera. What are the advantages what do you gain from it? I understand that it pin points a place you took a photo, but I can remember where I took my pics. Is there a commercial advantage to it?

Just trying to understand this a little more,

I waited a few days on ordering a 5d mkiii, I was hoping the new FF might be something great (it's not)..

Time to order that 5d mkiii

Thanks for all the replys.

I'm still trying to make my mind up. I'm wondering has anyone tried the Sigma 120 - 300mm f/2.8 lens on the 5d mk 3. (sorry to say the "S" word on the Canon website)

I think if I used the 1.4 Tel converter it would make it a 120-300mm f/2.8 lens as a 168- 420mm f/4 lens.

A 420mm f4 would be epic (is this a possibility, has any one tried this???)

Can you use the canon 1.4 on a s Sigma lens??

Email Canon, did they not have problems with some grips that needed a recall? You might be one and could get it very cheep/ free!

I was about to upgrade to the 5D iii (currently have 50D) but just before I do I want to check with the many Pros and Arm Chair Pros on here if it would be right for me.

I want to shoot Aviation and animals, some landscape and Family (non portrait, just nice shots)

I can spend up to £8000 ($12000), however saving money always helps.

I have currently 70-200 L IS 2.8 and 24-105 IS L 4.0

The options then FF or not to FF. 600mm f4 or will the 400m F5.6 do it's a lot cheaper? Which Body? Which Lens? Extenders? (I had one 2x mk ii on a 70-200 and did not like the quality)

Any other combos you guys can think of????

Thanks for your time!

Thanks for all the reply's. I'm very limited by equipment, using a flash with extension cord is as crazy as it gets. I like the idea of a reflector. The flash is harsh on the second one..

As for the job, It is to be Jack Sparrows at Disney Land (Paris)....

Thanks for all the feedback.

justsomedude: I used small LED lights that go on key chains. Need to keep it pointing at the lense when using 

rpt: Canon 50D / 166 Seconds / 13mm / f10 / ISO160 Wireless remote. Flash gun to light the inside of the bus
       at the front.

pj1974: It was just one take. Having done a few of these I have developed a better method for referencing.
            Say if I draw legs, I will start at the waist, keep a finger at that point then draw the leg. Back to my
            finger to draw the other leg and so on

             It was all myslef, and LED key chain lights.
