This is my first post here at Canon Rumours. Don't laugh... yesterday I ordered a 6D with the 24-105L lens. I am promised delivery in December. I currently have a T1i and four canon lens (two L's and soon three). Over the past three years I have taken quite a few photos and gradually become more interested in and able to produce better photographs. I have read quite extensively which has helped my photos quality progress and I have been looking at getting a better camera for months. I like the Canon system and would rather not have to learn a second one. Not being a pro, and not wanting to be, I am looking for a camera that will allow me to be more creative and get the shots I envision. I want to explore nature videos and night and landscape photography, although most of my current photos are of people. I decided on the 6D since I expect it will be at least as good as the 5d mark ii and since it is new it should serve me well for a number of years. Some of the features that convinced me to go for this camera were the built in lens correction using downloadable lens profiles (I have a 24mm 1.4II that really needs a better camera), the focal adjustment, the wifi, the full frame sensor (I like that it has a bigger pixel than the 5d mark iii even if fewer). None of the lack of features that people have been complaining about on the site seemed like deal-breakers to me. Since I am still collecting lens and trying many different types of photography I am not set on buying the "ultimate" camera at this time. By not buying the 5D mark iii I am able to buy a camera and another lens. For me, the 6D suits me more than the other offerings out there at this time and I am so excited. I can't wait for December.
