This past week my house was robbed and I lost my 5DMkIII along with the 24-70MkII that was attached to it. Strangely not the Ona bag that it was in with another couple lenses in it. But no complaining there.
Anyways... my homeowners insurance is going to cover it. Thank god. Now I'm left with some decisions.
I'd like to replace my 5D with another one. And obviously the price at Big Value is pretty good. But I've seen conflicting information in the forums about whether it matters warranty-wise whether they're a Canon Authorized dealer.
So I'm looking on some input on: Is buying from Big Value a bad idea? I'd like to have the warranty, but am not sure that's worth $450, if there really is no warranty. It definitely says Canon USA Warranty on the ebay listing.
Secondly, if I can't take advantage of that, I might look at getting a 6D, which wasn't out when I purchased my 5D. I know this issue has been beat to death, but it would help me if someone could sum up the main points for me. What I think I'm hearing is same still quality, slightly slower autofocus, worse video. But if anyone has any real life examples with both, that would help me out a lot.
Thanks for your help on either of these questions!
