I'd love all the primes but I'll not carry everything. I'll think first on what to carry depending on the situation. Maybe a 3 lens combination.

Controlling the Light: Beginners Guide to Off-Camera Lighting and Control
That video is the single most informative resource for beginners I've come across.
I hear focusing speed on Canon's "mirrorless" cameras are groundbreaking.
It's surprisingly difficult to get the detail in bees' eyes for some reason, unlike most other insects. I'm assuming the facets are smaller in bees and wasps than true flies and dragonflies.
If you think that testing cameras inside of Costco with kit lenses on is going to show any actual difference - I would stick with your 450D. Sorry, sad truth
Gotta start somewhere.
I agree we all start somewhere, there is no need to be harsh. When I got my Nikon Coolpix 950 I basically knew nothing beyond my P&S film camera (which was nothing), and that was an expensive high end camera in the day - I enjoyed it and have learned a lot since.
I would however recommend reading a few review sites to learn more about the 6D and D600 before making the plunge into either expensive camera.You can get D600's real cheap.
Buyers are not buying, perhaps due to the problem with oil or whatever splattering on the sensor every time you take a image. Some say it eventually stops after a few thousand images, and a dozen sensor cleanings. Resale value will be dismal.
Yes there is a sensor dust/oil problem. I'm not sure it's the end of the world, or that it's the cause of the recent low prices - there is no evidence it's not selling well - or that it'll have bad resale values. It's just speculation at this point, although it may be valid. And it is a problem to consider, especially since Nikon won't admit to it; Canon seems a lot more willing to fix issues in it's new releases quickly and for free. And I would factor in the cost of a few sensor cleanings on the D600 (don't try it yourself, that will lower the resale value of the camera, and could cause problems). Have a look at Nikon Rumors for more information on the issue, and see lensrentals.com and their take on it.
the M that is... the fuji is awesome...
