It seems that the 7D is getting no love... ;~;

Image quality won't be improved because they share the same sensor.  Most of the things he shoots are stationary and don't require an advanced auto focus system or a higher frames per second rate.. so that's why.

I'm a fan of the 7d and getting it used for $700 is a steal, but it is all about the body that is right for the shooter.

I think you would benefit  moving from the cropped sensor to any of the full frame sensors.
You need to go and put your hands on the cameras and see how they feel to you, weight, size, ect. The way the camera handles to you is more important than any review or technical rating.
If you have a FF sensor you can buy equivalent FF lenses vs the cropped lenses, so our next upgrade you can keep the lenses and sell the body.
On the wi-fi issue - i think its a hand feature when traveling. Neither body i have has it, my point and shoot does. Sometimes when i travel , i only have an iPad and its nice to link the point and shoot up and send pictures to family
I don't think the 6d has a pop up flash, so you will also need a flash. I have the 270 and 600, i would recommend the 270, its easy to carry and does what you need for most flash situations i have.
Keep in mind the weight and size of your kit- in my opinion , lighter and less is better,especially when you travel.
hope this helps!

Given your shooting interests, I'd say get the 6D. It's a camera you can grow with. Get it with the kit lens, 24-105--some great deals can be had. Then, get whatever lenses in whichever order makes sense for you.

700$, That is pretty cheap.

700$, That is pretty cheap.

About 2 or three months ago, I bought a used 7D with less than 2500 actuations and a 28-135 for the bargain basement price of $650.  I then turned around and sold the 7D for 700ish and the lens for 200ish... so I made an easy $250ish. 

So... yeah... cheap.

6D. The change to full frame will hopefully recharge your photographic eye.
You'll also love the openness of a proper wide angle lens! Its a big leap but a nice change.

For the uses listed, the 6D is the better choice, budget permitting. 

6D

I was going to say +1, but 6D + 1 = 7D, and that's not what I mean.  ;)

No, 6D + 1 = 6E.  6D + (0x)10 = 7D.  :D

Hi, could you please show how you arrived at this formula!   :o
BODMAS being the first principle, (0x)10 I still recon this equals zero even if x is an unknown, anything (x) times 0=0, 0x10 =0 so are you saying 6D +0 = 7D? Or is my calculus (basically unused for 20 yrs) really that rusty?   :'(
I stand to be corrected, perhaps we are using cypher principles rather than mathematical principles?  ::)  ;D  ;D

Cheers Graham.

No, 6D + 1 = 6E.  6D + (0x)10 = 7D.  :D

I saw it... and I thought there would be a joke somewhere than I'm not getting. 

6D9 + 1= 6E  Ok... Then we need to solve for D since that is use in the next equation.

D=(6e-10)/6

ok

So plug that into the next equation which gives us...


6*(6e-10)/6+(0x)10=7*(6e-10)/6

So... reduce... and we get to

6e-10+0=(42e-70)/6

6e-10=7e-11.66
6e=7e-1.66
1.66=1e
ergo e=1.66

plug that into the equation above...

D=(6*1.66-10)/6
d=(10-10)/6
d=0/6
d=0 


So yeah...

I loved calculus 1 and 2 and got my ass kicked in calc three... so one day when I'm retired... I'll happily go back and audit some calc classes... for shitz and giggz.

It's counting in Hexadecimal...

67 68 69 6A 6B 6C 6D 6E 6F....

and 6D(hex) + 10(hex) = 7D(hex)

Sad thing is, I'm old enough to have programmed bootstrap loaders in Octal and binary.... loading it in with toggle switches...

Hi Don.
Damn it is so sad when a clever joke has to be explained to the recipients! It would have been so much funnier if I got it whilst it was fresh!
Thanks for explaining it Don, sorry for not getting it dgatwood, it was clever!  :-[

Adorama had a refurb 6D for 1299... so that should be around the price point where buy it, no questions asked.
