Thanks again.  Leaning towards Photomatix because it looks like you have to buy the entire Nik everything. 
Someone recommended Photomatix Essentials for the most simplified solution, but is that missing any type of interface with Lightroom?  If so, would it make sense to go all out with Photomatix Pro 5?

Thanks.  I had landscapes mostly in mind, at least to start, but it'll likely branch out into everything minus sports.

Thanks.  Just one quick question to kick it off - Do you usually process one of the pictures and then sync the others to that or process them all separately or not process them at all and just use the raw RAW shots?  Then, I guess, you might further process the finished HDR shot with the Photomatix software?

     Is there a preferred software for HDR?  I have Lightroom 5 if that matters and would place a heavy weight towards "simple".
     Since we're on the subject of HDR do most shoot the 3+ images in RAW or stick with JPEG's?  Don't yet completely have my head around HDR, but I think it's my next thing (so any other insight for a total novice would be very much, as always, appreciated).

Thank you for both replies.  Would, then, this maybe be the "best" place to begin?:

Thanks.  I think it's my next purchase.  Here's a pretty good video on it's use:

For a Canon person who likes to keep things easy and simple would there be a familiarity with an S120 that might not be the case with an RX100?  Thanks.

Sports / Two "Running" Shots

My two favorites from this past weekend and the final appearance of my trusty T1i:

If you like, here's my "running" photoshoot from yesterday with my T1i.  There was, for the first time, some "focus" struggling so I think I'm going to be one of the most indecisive people of all time and revisit the 70D:

Not a bad idea.  Maybe I'll rent one just to check it out.

Thanks for the responses.  I've decided to keep the T1i until something comes out that says "this is it".  I really like my current lenses of which their focal lengths really work.  High ISO performance would be great, but 6400 isn't horrible with the T1i (especially after hit with LR4) and anything more modern (even in a crop sensor) will be even better (even if not up to full frame specs). 
I think the perfect camera (for me anyway) would be a 70D without the articulating screen or the extra external buttons (I prefer going into the menu).  Maybe it'll be the T6i.
Most importantly, thanks too for not criticizing me for being an idiot.  I do the best I can.

     I'm paralyzed with indecision on whether to keep my T1i, "upgrade" to an SL1 or upgrade to a 6D.  My lenses are the 35 2.0 IS, 100 2.0 and 200 2.8II. 
     My primary doodie is indoor volleyball (my daughter's in 11th grade and is on a seriously crazy club team through to June), but I do it all and can really notice differences in image quality.  For example - people say that zooms are as good as primes and I say "not" - I can tell and appreciate the difference. 
     Figured that if I were to go to full frame that I'd stick with my current lenses and add as appropriate (if even needed). 
     I do also very much appreciate simplicity and don't like articulating screens, don't use video and don't shoot Continuous.  And I use LR4.
     So, clearly, I'm unable to make a decision without anonymous guidance on the internet.  I'm pleased with my T1i, but ready to be more pleased.  My course is in your hands, I'll tally the responses and then do that.
