I have a canon 550d rebel and was considering the "jump" to FF.
The Canon 6d is in my budget. However the Nikon D800 is available (refurb) for $2,300.
I ask myself - why spend almost the same on the inferior 6d ? Why does canon seem to give less and charge more ?
Ypu know, I am just gonna reply to this OP without reading because --- it's really such a silly statement!!!!! Comparing a new model to a refurb? Then saying the trollish "Why does canon seem to give less and charge more ?" Really man? I have seen a few refurb and used 5dmk3's in the low 2k area! It's a rfurb, and you know what, by the time you wait for there to be replies to this q that refurb will be bought cause the d800 is still new!!!! Refurbs on any of these newer bodies are few and far between, and ususally scooped up by folks that know enough to know they won't be around in a few hours!!!!
Sorry if that sounds harsh, but the wording of this is so trollish... if you had asked about the 6d vs the d600 and aren't invested in glass then we are in an actual conversation. But this is just silly, like wondering why a used car is less expensive than a used one...
