The real problem is that most of us have to be pretty careful with our $$.  Otherwise, of course it's worth it since there are a number of very nice things you get; DPAF, AF points, resolution, flip screen, etc. 

Why do $$ have to always get in the way! ;)

hi Tom, nice images! Also nice to hear a Pro's thoughts on a camera, usually vastly different from the 'professional reviewers'

I am glad you are happy with the 6d2 and that it is mostly an improvement over the 5d3.

Except for perhaps the bump in resolution and improvement in outer AF points , you could actually have been describing the 'old 6D' ! Which, of course, makes it even more difficult to decide if the 6D2 is worth it....although I do remember how much more refined the 6D felt at the time compared to my 5d2 ... but my thoughts also keep on turning to perhaps a 2nd hand 5Ds or R instead of a new 6d2...?

Thanks Ivan, appreciate your comments.

I also considered a 5DSR but the files are just too big for the work I do and rarely would need the resolution. My computer crawls in lightroom with the 5DMKIII and 6DMKII files let alone twice the size.
