There will be no 5D Mark III or 6D replacement in the nex two years.

But there will be a FF over the 5D Mark III.

Save yourself some pain and buy a 5D3 now.  Otherwise you'll chew your fingernails off every time Canon makes an announcement for the next 2-3 years.
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.

ok ok im sold!!  ;)

i think i will buy the 6D next week.

im not so much into sports photography.
90% i do is landscape, macro and portraits.

i looked at the 5D MK3 AF system (camera manual) and i have to say i would not use it to it ´s full potential anyway. it´s to complicated for what i need... or lets say it has to many options to fiddel around with i would never us.

with the 7D i used the center AF point most of the time.
except when i shoot portraits with my 100mm f2.0 and 50mm f1.4.

i think the 6D with the 7D AF would be perfect for me.
or when all 11 AF points would be cross focus points.
but i think i can live with the 6D AF system.

i would love to shot birds but my longest lens is a 70-200mm.
makes no real fun with such a short lens i noticed.
don´t know if it makes sense to buy a 5D MK3 yet just for the possibility that i will buy a 400mm lens some day. ;)

the 5D MK3 is 1000 euro more and i need to buy a standard zoom too.
so for a kit that means 2500 vs 3500 euro....3500 euro is too much money for me.

thanks for all your advices!

The 7D is as good if not better for sports and birding for larger prints with the crop factor and pixel density apart from high ISO which you may need (400mm F5.6 or 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 are the easiest way to get into the long end but are fairly slow lenses ISO is a god send) to get the same field of view you need to crop and as previously said the density is more useful for large prints. If you buy the 6D and keep the 7D you will be pretty much set for a good compromise.

Its a good combo, and gives you a second camera as a backup. Thing is the 5DMKIII is a joy to use and is best of both worlds. I would take the 5DMKIII but it is slightly more expensive but really is very underrated cant say that enough.

No digital camera is an investment.  They are all rapidly depreciating expenses.  Determine if you really can't do
what you like with your current gear and if the answer is "no", then go buy something that will.  Whatever you choose, there will be a better choice in six months.

he does not see that camera as investment... not as an investment that grows.
but he wants to spend/invest his money for the right stuff.

as most people do who work for their money.  ;)


so it´s absolutely fine to aks if there will be a better option in the "near" future.
