I went from:
1. 40D to 60D - swivel screen
2. 60D to 7D - better AF
3. 7D to 5D II - better high ISO
4. 5D II to 5D III - better AF + high ISO

5. 5D III to FF mirrorless + a lot of pancake lenses. I don't care who making it - Sony, Nikon, Canon, Fuji etc....If AF speed is x2 - x3 faster than current RX1, I'm ready to convert.

I really miss my swivel screen.   about half the time  w h en I use live view I wish I had it back.

Me too. I recently bought RX100 II. The tilt screen is quite handy when shooting kids.

I'm not even going to engage in this silliness, just to point out that this man is either an idiot or a troll.




Let's not encourage him, eh?






Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

"Upgrading" from a 7D to a 6D to shoot sports is a horrible idea. I was shooting some action and it was a huge pain in the rear.  I ended up having to shoot wide with the center point and crop. Action really benefits from the joystick and extra points/zones. The shots I did get look fantastic, but I had to shoot so many to get them. Fortunately, I almost never shoot action.  I have the perfect camera for a convention shooter (who is poor)  :P If action shooting is in my future, "downgrading" to a 7D2 is an option.

Interesting opinion and statements. I agree that buying every new Rebel that comes out is not a good use of savings.
XXD's don't always warrant an automatic upgrade. I think my L glass purchases are on hold. I would like a 16-35 f2.8
but my 17-85 has gained new life thanks to my 7D which has made my error 99 - 40D a dusty paperweight. I shot 83
pics yesterday with my 7D and 17-85 and am quite happy with the pics that I got. I should have swapped with my 100
Macro when trying to take a pic of a spider on it's web. Oh well maybe next time. 17-85 is a good range for a walk around
zoom lens. A faster shutter speed and better optics would be nice. Are you listening Canon? Then I might consider a new
L lens purchase. I don't think I'll buy a new camera until the 7D wears out. I need a new all in one and maybe a new
Laptop. But the 70D is very interesting as an upgrade for my wife.

Hi there,

I feel it's a waste of money upgrading from one Canon rebel to the next rebel or even a 60D to the 70D.
I suggest that you upgrade only to a larger sensor body.
It is just a waste of money to buy another camera having the same size sensor IMO.

Upgrade your glass instead.

I find it interesting that you "feel" the only factor that matters in a camera is the sensor size.  I suppose that means by this logic, my upgrade from the 5D3 will be a camera with a larger sensor and I should avoid the 5D4, 5D5 and so on?  As I said, interesting.

It feels strange that no one has mentioned better DR as a reason for upgrading.

I went from an xs  to a 60d  and even though my lone lens at the time was the nifty fifty, I was more than happy with the performance and my decision to upgrade. 

 could I have spent the money on lenses,  yes,  but the lenses I  could afford at the time would have left me wanting more.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

If the OP wants the best IQ only, then the OP needs an 8x10 view camera with the best lenses and best wet darkroom or killer digital back-end.  Cuz it's all about media size, right?

Don't waste your time.
It looks like the OP upgraded from a rebel to a 6D, and "thinks" that he knows what he is talking about.

But, in that perspective, moving from one rebel to the next is a waste of money, given that one can save his/her money and upgrade to a FF camera.

Even still, I am sure that he doesn't have a clue about what medium format and large format is... and I am very sure given that he seems money conservative that if he saw how much those guys cost especially in terms of their individual pieces, e.g. lenses, digital backs, etc... that he won't even give a second look.

"Upgrading" means switching to a higher grade. 60D and 70D are in the same grade, so it won't be an upgrade, only an update. Neither sensor size nor price define camera grade, it's about the whole package.

Prsonally, I think everyone should start with 3 1DX bodies, 8-15mm 4L, 14mm 2.8L, 24mm 1.4L, 16-35 II 2.8L, 24-70 II 2.8L, 70-200 II 2.8L, 200m 2.0L, 100mm IS Macro 2.8L, 200-400 1.4x 4.0L, 300 2.8L, 400 2.8L, 600 f/4, and 800 f4.

Then upgrade every time a new version is released.  If you can afford it, buy them and go away.

Why not upgrade to an ipad? It was a bigger touchscreen and two cameras :)
