I took this picture a few weeks ago.  I am using a 7D with a 70-200 II @ 70mm.  1/125, F/9, ISO 125

Here's a link to the color version:

BTW, I know the power lines take away from the photo, but there isn't much I can do about that.  The spot where I took the pic is the only spot I can get it from without trespassing. How about the rest of the image?  You like?

Back in May I upgraded from a Rebel XTi to a 7D with the anticipation that a new FF camera was going to come out sooner than later.  I would sell my 7D and upgrade to whatever was nice and new. Sure enough, the 6D was announced.  As a lot of people, I wasn't too thrilled with the initial specs of the 6D, but I am slowly starting to like what I'm reading.

I love the 7D.  I think it's an amazing camera with one exception.  I think it has too much noise.  For that reason alone, I really want to upgrade.  That being said, I'm not so sure I'll be happier with a FF camera.  I mean, the build quality of the 7D seems really good to me and people are saying the 6D is closer to a 60D.  Am I reading too much into this from a build quality perspective?  I don't really need the fast fps, but it sure is fun to have.  I am also worried about missing out on the advantage of having a cropped sensor.  My walk around lens is the 70-200mm II.  I love this lens.  The pictures are extremely sharp and it has great clarity.  Will this lens be even better on the 6D?

I know the images will look cleaner, sharper and nicer on the 6D.  I mostly shoot landscape and people, but not really portraits.  I do occasionally record video.  Obviously I don't need a 5D3.  I'm not a professional and I don't pay attention to every single feature of my camera.  I'm still learning a lot and still getting used to shooting in manual+RAW.  And I know a lot of people in here will laugh at me for this, but I use LR as a crutch to make my pictures look better while I get better at picture taking :)  But hey, that's the truth.

I guess the bottom line is, I want really good image quality.  I want it to look sharp, clear, and as little noise as possible.  Here's are two pics I took with my 7D and 70-200mm II.  Any critique is welcomed.  Thanks!
