Thanks to those who replied to my question, it makes more sense to me now, and I appreciate your insight. Sometimes it's hard to understand why people enjoy a certain thing when you much prefer the opposite, and is why I was curious and asked.
To bdunbar79, any sense of entitlement you perceive is your own creation, because there is none. I apologized in advance in case anyone misjudged my tone, and explained why I prefer a text version, and was seeking an explanation "from the other side", so to speak. Apparently you just enjoy causing arguments, of which I will not give you the pleasure of.
No Mayo, where did I ever say I was not trying to draw attention to myself at work? Not being able to watch that long of a video does not equate to trying not to draw attention on myself. I explained numerous times how I wanted to find out the reasons for a video instead of text. Obviously, I prefer text. When did it become wrong to try to see the other side? Where I come from, that's admirable, not arrogant.
Or simply, you can ask RLPhoto for a transcription or text version. Then everybody's happy. Everybody got his own preference. Just my 2 cents, if you don't prefer videos, then just simply don't bother with the post and move on or ask if he's offering the same review in your preferred format. You're clearly inviting arguments when you write your heavily opinionated statements there.
damn you guys just gave me GAS, here comes a 16-35mm F4
i like doing landscapes so far i have been using the 24-105mm will i like this lens? is the IQ going to be noticeably better?
I think if you're happy with 24mm, it won't. You'll only buy this lens if you want something wider than 24mm.
I've used 500D previously and now a 6D with my 100mm F2.8 macro usm non-L. I still prefer 500D if there's good light. I'll only use 6D if there's not much light. 500D image is still sharper than a cropped image from 6D.
So, I wonder if someone else is posting under the same "Dilbert" name...if Mr. Dilbert has multiple personality disorder or if he considers it acceptable social behavior to make rude, denigrating comments to insult the abilities of others.
Yes, I have a multiple personality disorder, so what?
That's nice. Then they'll never believe you. Well your opinion will just be an opinion, never a winning argument then. The well is poisoned. Nobody will ever drink from it.

the 6D is a better camera even it costs more than the 5D3
6D is cheaper. It's around 1 L-lens cheaper...

You can write an OS script to transfer all your files automatically so you won't miss anything. Just one click, all your files are transferred. I can write one if you want one.
gezz i can't go for all lens now
1) EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM or
EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM 2) EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USMLATER
3) EF 35mm f/2
i think i will go for these 2 now , also guys
i saw some reviews about this lens EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM they said it's also good on sharpness and contrast , only different is the 1 F-stop more light
for me i want to shoot landscape, building, street , desert ...etc maybe some portrait of my kids
Do i need flash ? for the camera , i may use some shoots at night near lake or something
Speedlite 600EX-RT , and which remote is good to use the camera
i know i ask so much here but i need to start in good shape
Just a suggestion, it might be good to consider getting the 24-105L as a kit lens. You can sell it later for a profit if you really want to go for the 24-70mm F2.8 II. I initially planned to get the 24-70II also but settled with the 24-105L due to its flexibility. I find that I like primes more when doing portrait photography. For the kind of money for 24-70L II, you can already get a good 17-40L and a 24-105L. (Just thinking out loud...) For most landscapes, I kind of prefer an FL wider than 24mm. You can also take a look at the very good Samyang 14mm if you're not the "filter" type.
If you like manual, a good Yongnuo flash + Yongnuo trigger are very good investments. Currently, I'm using Nissin flash + Yongnuo manual flash and triggers and didn't find any problem. If you want to use E-ttl though, Canon flashes might be a better investment.

Those 3 cameras you mentioned just have the same IQ as the T3i. I'd rather buy a 5D and a 24-105L lens. But since you want video, then starting with the 50D sounds a little bit better if you are really not into sports. You can invest the 300bucks into a good landscape/video lens such as the new 10-18mm IS. If you are buying APS-C, don't forget to buy also the kit lens 18-55 IS (STM if possible) as they are light and a good value for money. It also has a very good IQ. Good luck with whatever your decision will be.You forgot that 50D does not have video recording?
It can have if you're willing to install ML but yes, you're right, not natively. I forgot about that because I'm thinking of my old 500D which I love so much. I wish I don't have to give that to my dad. I really miss it especially for macro work.

I'm happy with my 24-105L. Besides having that extra 30mm, it's also lighter. It's a truly good all-around lens. I'd love changing to the more expensive and sharper 24-70mm F2.8 II but can't find any justification for it since I do have some primes for low-light/studio work. Here are some samples of the 24-105L at MFD.
+1. Wait for the new Canon 10-18mm. It's cheap and should perform good or better than the very good 10-22. It should also be lighter and with IS. Couple it with a good Tamron 17-55 + Canon 55-250mm and you're set with one of the lightest gear for the 700D.
6D + 24-105L if you really want to go FF. 6D is a perfect travel camera. Since you're not invested in any EF lenses yet, you can also have a look at mirrorless FF offering by Sony. They're smaller and lighter and comparable IQ.
