Yes, your idea makes sense. If at this point a camera APS-C meets their immediate needs, the best choice seems to be 70D. Unless we are surprised by the announcement this month 7D Mark ii. Good luck in the fight with the insurance company.

Next year I will look to buy an FF body - when Canon will release an new FF body

That would be the famed high-mp eos 1 body - I hope your pockets are full enough, because that'll empty them as fast as African highwaymen :-o ... imho for something useful new to filter down into the 6d price region it'll take 2-3 years.

He told us, that there will be a FF body in the D800 region....Maybe he is right. I hope so. The "1" series is to expensive for me

7D2 announcement this month? Did I misunderstand that? (I am sorry, but after an traumatic brain damage after an jet crash, I suffer from partial speech-deficites).

Everything I've read so far indicates a 1d-type camera, including a japanese powerpoint slide with a blank field next to the 1dx, i.e. on the same level. Rest assured, Canon won't imitate Nikon's aggressive marketing with the d800 but start at the very top once they've got a new sensor.

"Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt" - We hope that there will be an miracle and Canon will release an affordable new and IQ improved FF camera  ;)  Wir Bayern waren ja immer schon a Bisserl mehr gläubig, als unsere preussischen Landsleute :-))

Yeah, and pigs can fly :-p ... I just wanted to make sure you know that buying a crop now and waiting for a new affordable ff next year will end in a disappointment.

Of course I know that. If Canon will not release such a Camera, I take an D800 or D600II (using my wifes lenses)

that is a link to another thread about the autofocus issues on the sigma 18-35. i posted some test shots of that combo there.  i had to get the sigma dock to get the focus correct but then you have super sharp  f1.8 zoom and camera for under $2000.00 usd. i also bought an sl1 for a gift and took a few test shots with it before sending it on its way. i was impressed with the sl1 and 18-55 kit lens for $538.00 from big value inc. its nice and sharp too. i don't think you would see a difference there but the exposure, awb, and colors seem better on the 70d to my eye. i will post a couple of the sl1 test shots. the backpack on the floor is 3200 iso

Don't expect to see much IQ difference between equivalent camera models.  Its just not going to happen.
Look instead at lens prices and availability of good used lenses
Look for features you want or will use
Look for availability of third party accessories
Look at Service times and user issues
Look at prices
Look at resale prices
Try the product out if possible to see how it fits in your hands, and check the layout of buttons and menu screens.
We are all different and we value different things differently, so get whats right for you.
