If the cat jumps at the photographer, think of it as a golden opportunity to take an award winning photo - you may get it posthumously, but an award is an award! ;)

Thank you, thank you everybody who voted for me, my family and friends for keeping me sane during the extended hospital stay (just joking) and to my manager, who told me to "get closer and use f8"!

In retrospect I realise a 1Dx with face recognition AF on could have done a vastly superior job than me!  ;)
Excellent! Your acceptance speech matches the award winning photo ;)

I'd upgrade to the 6D.  It's a great full frame camera.  And why wait for something that's only a rumor? Even if it does get announced, dates can get pushed so far back. 
Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 60D; EF-S 10-22; EF 70-200 f/4L IS; EF 24-70 f/2.8L II; 580EX II.  Soon to add: 50 1.2L, 135 f/2L, 8-15L

Welcome thoughts from the group.  I currently have a T2i and I am really itching for an upgrade.  Trying to decide whether to just go for it w/ the 6D or hold off until the new 7D comes out next year.  Thoughts?

What lenses do you have, and what is your budget ? You should budget for decent lenses. For what you're shooting, a full frame body would be nice but don't blow all your dough on a body and be left without a budget for lenses.

But really, I'm so sick of the spec list comparison and the pixel peeping crowd bashing every camera that comes out. If people spent half as much time working on their skills and just shooting with the equipment they have instead of bitching, they would be better photographers.

Sure, but what good is it for being a good photographer, if you're images are to noisy or soft, due to the equipment?

I don't know what to say, other than deal with it. In the film days, I dealt with it by pushing, which blew out the grain, and if it really needed it, Pull it into Photoshop (or more accurately for me back then Jasc PaintShop Pro) and cut the grain a bit. Same now...there's a lot that can be done with noise in Lightroom.

Softness is a different animal though - I've only gotten soft images one of a few ways, most notably through AF weaknesses (half the time, I should have manually focused anyways so it was really the next reason), or through my own errors in focusing.

This was my attempt with a 1 series camera and 16-35, the tiger got the better of me and it didn't choke on the 1Ds MkIII......... but we all survived!
I beleive that this is the reason Canon makes an 800MM lens and a 2X teleconverter :)
The best camera is the one in your hands

Right, but Gary shoots mountain lions with a 70-200 without a teleconverter... :) He is brave. I am not so brave...

I shot my un-caged tiger with a 16-35, does that make me brave or stupid?  :)
A fine line there... For sure you were brave - and probably the tiger was wise - or already fed ;)
