Sorry for a slight offtopic, but how does it feel using a 6D when do you have a 5DIV with all the latest juice? I am asking because I am thinking about getting an older 6D (they seem ridiculously cheap as everyone is moving to 6DII) and right now I have EOS M5. It sure would be a bump in low light image quality, but then again I am spoiled by modern tech like articulated touch screen, more focus points, DPAF, wifi... so I am worrying that a 6D would feel outdated. Are you keeping the 6D just for the sake of colours or because it's still great to use? :)

Hi Karl, I'm keeping the camera for it's colors and as a backup. thanks.

I did not have 5D but I had 2 5D3s. Now I have sold both. I like 5D4 so I would not use them anyway (not that I dislike them though...). As for backup I kind of have: a 5DsR which normally is being used for different type of photography

Ive not upgraded to the 5D MKIV but have upgraded from the 6D to the 6D MKII (as well as owning the 5DS). I have two properties & the one in rural Devon Ive left the 6D with the EF 24-105mm f4L IS USM and the EF 17-40mm f4L USM.
The camera and these two lenses are my "B" team but they still produce great landscape shots and save me lugging a camera outfit backwards & forwards (I also keep a second Lee Filters set in the bag).
