2000$ for 6D or 2375$ for a Refurbed MK3? You all are quibbling for the 500$ difference from the 5D2 to the 6D, which is minimal gains, while from the 6D to the 5D3 is day-night difference.
agreed...5d3 is much better than the 6d. But, finding one at $2400 is a bit more difficult. Yes they do pop up (never when I actually have the $$$ to snag one!!!!), but it's not like refurb mk3's are flooding the market. They pop up and then they're gone real quick. I see more frequently used ones starting at $2750. B&H is still doing a deal on the 6d --- 6d +16 gig sd card + a little shoulder bag for $1899. So we're more realistically talking about a $1000 difference. And if we're talking brand new - $3150.
All of this is very subjective --- what are your needs? Everyones are different. I have a mk3 and need a backup body. The 6d has many good selling points to me, unless it's timed right and I can find a refurb mk3. But in regards to that, I want this decision to be made by mid may. My side note is that I am trying to finance my own wedding, and yeah, that extra $1000 may make a big difference for me (and yeah, there are other buying decisions too, I have some glass in mind!).
Either way, I still feel that the 6d is better value than the mk2
