    I have a 7D and love it - gave up on the idea of the mythical 7D II as well. My next camera will likely be a 6D as well. I keep eyeing the full frame for the image quality, but will likely keep the 7D for wildlife and birding. I am sure you will love that 6D, I keep looking at it for the low-light and high image quality reputation it enjoys.

    congrats, I have had the 6D for about 5 months now. love the camera. the low light abilities are great. not sure which lenses you have. I love my 17-40 Canon. reasonably priced and I guess I have a super sharp copy. its amazing how much different the FF is when putting on a wide angle. notice a little bit of change on long zooms, but the wide angles are awesome.

    Congrats, wow what a great camera, while being a Nikonian I do have tons of respect and appreciation to the 6D, its a beast in low light-great camera!!!.
    Enjoy it :)

    Heck I'll be more modest, if anybody feels like giving me a free D610 then I am ok with that LOL

    Not to worry, no one here was born with a DSLR in his/her hands.

    Thanks guys. I took delivery yesterday but its raining here so at best I am just going through the menu getting every thing the way I want it set up.
    The shutter is so quiet compared to my 60D and the bright big viewfinder is great. I was excited to find out the battery and charger is the same as the 60D so I just popped in a fully charged one from my 60D, no waiting to fiddle with it. Cant wait to get out to shoot this thing. I now have 4 battery's and 3 chargers.

    Pictures, heck you got that FF for better low light capabilities. So with it raining, that is a PERFECT opportunity to show us right out of the box. Come on Man!!!

    I am sure you will love the 6D. I have heard nothing but good things about it. I myself am holding out for the 7D II and am hoping that it will be announced soon lol. Not holding my breath though. I own a 7D now and love it so I am sure you are loving that 6D. It is great in low light.
