Dylan, did you really pay full price? Canon refurbs at @ 2799$ plus, its a second body afterall.

Just a thought.

Yes...@ $3200. I paid $3500 for my 1st ;D

My 4yrs daughter will graduate from pre-school this coming friday ;D. The teachers & school principal have asked me to be " THE photographer" for this event ;D. It seems like perfect timing for 2nd body.

I'm happy to see most of my photos were used in 2012-2013 school year book.

I also helped with the year book.   it  gave  me  something to do while I was bored  at  basketball and football games.   they used 28  of my photos...  and I'm still trying to figure out if that is a slight.  28  out of a thousand photos...  but really 28  out of 100  submissions...  because I didn't send them all. 

Heck,  it  could be 28 of 56  for all I know...  but still 28  seems like a small number.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

How many total photos were there in the year book? Additionally, are you sure you were covering the "event" or primarily photographing your children?  :)

There were 2 pages in the school year book that below to pre-school. I didn't count it, but most photos were taken by me.

Ok...you got me there ;D ;D ;D

Sorry guys...but it's done for me. Door is locked & key is now in the ocean.

Any additional purchase(s) could lead to BIG TROUBLE with the BOSS @ home ;D ;D ;D

 my kid was a bench warmer...  and she was a cheerleader  so she didn't play football....  honestly... I  really only covered two sports,  so 28  isn't bad.   but I was still kinda hoping for a,  special thanks to blurb...  but no. 

 and not to boast,  but my 28  were action packed and visually stimulating...   as  compared to the,  look here and smile  photos with the flash washing out all of the detail.

(sigh)  I'm returning the 6D today (purchased on Thursday).  Decent camera but a little slower and a bit "plastic-y" (minor gripe).  You guys were right.  I've got to get an identical body.  damn... time to save!!!

As many suggested, using identical bodies is quite easy. I attached 24-70 on one body and 70-200 & 135L on sencond. I was able to sit still and enjoining the show without walking around or swapping lenses(did one between 135L & 70-200 for extra shutter speed though).
