    I'm thinking of getting a 6D as a second body. I shoot mainly birds so I have a 7D Mark ii but I want something for everything else and I want it to be good in low light. I'd love to have a 5D Mark IV but it's way over my budget. I'm also thinking of the 80D because of the versatility. I don't care about video as I just shoot stills. I know these cameras are very different but I can't decide what to get. I have a T6i as the second body but I'm not that happy with it. I'd like to try photographing the milky way so that's why I was thinking about a full frame. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

    I am in a similar dilemma. Wishing there werent so many good cameras lol.

    After reading about either 5div and 6dii I want them both lol. I think 6dii is the answer but Im not convinced quite yet. I like cutting edge tech, cant see the benefit of 5div for twice the price. Focus tweaking? 2 slots? dont overly care about that stff. 4k is probably cool but then I need a new TV haha and I dont want to install that.

    Make up our minds before we switch to NIKON!

    Sorry to be of no help.

    They seem to be bashing the 6Dii and saying that the original 6D is better at high ISO. I don't know what to think. I like all the new features of the 6Dii but it would take me a lot longer to save up for. I'm going to sell my T6i with the 15-85 to fund the new camera. It's only 9 months old and less that 700 shots on it so I should be able to get a good price for it. The 6Dii with the 24-105 F4 is $4000 in Canada and the original 6D and 24-105 F4 is about $2500. Is it worth it to spend an extra $1500 for the extra features? Sometimes my brain hurts thinking about it.

    I can't skip the lens because the 15-85 lens I have won't work on an FF camera. It's an EFs lens for crop bodies only.

    Surely the L series kit lens is the only option then! :p

    Is anything really worth it? Just got to say what the F--k, make your move and splurge for something you want and will make you happy. You only live once.

    Good choice and a great value. I was gonna buy the 5d miii body only but I scratched a $500 winner this morning and I ordered the 5d M iv instead. Thanks FL Lottery for being the deciding factor.

    That's a great deal. I just checked it out and if I had enough saved up I'd go for it. I'm still about $1,000 short. Hmmm, what could I sell that my wife wouldn't notice missing :)
