I have just over €4000 to spend and I want to upgrade to a FF camera. At present I have a 60D with the following FF lenses - a 50 f1.4 and a 100-400L. ( my other lenses are crop and so are probably going to be sold)
I shoot mostly Family events, including the kids sporting endeavours, Portraits, some landscape (but not much) and I do some stuff for my kids school, all of which is as an amateur.
I have a few options in regards as to what to buy and I thought I would share them with you to get a sounding board as to possibly what my best options would be, or possibly what I haven't Thought of, My only stipulation is that there is a standard range zoom.
By the way I'm basing this on EUROPEAN E-BAY prices from sellers with x000 positive feedback and bases within the EU so no import taxes ( I am happy with the protection paypal offers as it went horribly wrong on a previous transaction and Paypal sorted it out)
Option 1 5D mk3 + 24-105 kit with a 135L f2
option 2 5d mk3, Tamron 24-70 f2.8 ( just too much for another lens)
option 3 6d, Tamron 24-70, Canon 70-200 f2,8 ISii (ok a couple hundred over)
option 4 6d +24-105 kit, 135L f2 , 70-200 f4 IS (again maybe a bit over)
option 5 6d Tamron 24-70, Tamron 70-200 f2.8
As you can see I have a lot of options, Which would be your choice?
I'd say go for option 5. There's very little if any compromise on lens quality and you can always upgrade to 5DmarkX when your kids get older.
The only thing to keep in mind is that Third party lenses don't hold their value too well, so make sure you like the zooms a lot before you buy.
