Thanks for the help everyone.  Here is what I decided for my purchase:

Canon 6D ($1600)
Canon 600EX speedlite ($500)

Both were purchased from an authorized Canon Dealer.

After reading numerous reviews and CR's member Dustin Abbott review on the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC lens, I am leaning towards that.  Just seems like an awesome lens for the money.  Found it for around $1100.

So that will complete my bundle for around $3000.  Very excited to get out there and start trying it out.

For the future I am looking at Canon's 70-300 f4-5.6L.  That will give me a wide range of focal lengths.

Congratulations on your new equipment acquisition. Have fun!  :)

Haha, congrats on the purchase. Awesome moment after a long wait is when you see a UPS/Fedex truck pulling up in front of your house, and the delivery person is taking out your box. You get all giddy! Even better when you have it in your hands and start playing with it!  ;D ;D ;D

Sorry, couldn't resist. I'm so immature... :-[

6D + 50mm f1.4 + 85mm f1.8 or 135L



I'd go this route. Fast primes first. But depends on your type of photography.
