Rocky Rhode, I'm not a photographer, just enthusiast about gadgets and the technology behind them.
I just got my first DSLR (1100D) free through some credit card reward program and got really curious about how images would look like in a quality lens like a 1.2L USM or better yet in a quality camera like the 6D.
So I thought I could either buy an 85mm 1.2L USM for my 1100D or a Canon 6D body (they're approx the same price).
However, given by what everyone is saying, it seems I have to get me some cheap 85mm prime lens if I decided to go with the 6D.
A better quality lens on your present camera will give you far more image quality improvement than swapping cameras would.
Doesn't need to be an über expensive L, such as the 85/1.2 II, either. An EF 85/1.8 is actually faster focusing, more general purpose, a lot more compact/lighter, would probably balance better on your camera, has very fine image quality potential, and costs a whole heckuvalot less.
There are various lenses that you might consider... both Canon EF and EF-S can be used on your camera, plus many lenses from third party manufacturers (Tokina, Sigma, Tamron, etc.)
