I've been torn for a bit on upgrading the body to my setup. Currently I use to crop bodies, a 60D and an SL1, with a few lenses, and then I have an RZ67/polaroid back for my film rig.
I really want to make the jump to full frame, but I'm intrigued by the 70D's film auto focus. I feel like a lot of people are a fan of it, and I have to expect that the 5D Mk4 would have this feature, would you guys think?
The release of the 6D is also intriguing, as it's a really affordable full frame body, but I feel like if I take the plunge for that, I will be kicking myself by not waiting. But I've been checking Canon Rumors etc. and haven't really seen the mention of implementing this new AF into a 5D, so is this even happening, or is this a pipe dream? I considered getting the 70D but I feel like it's such a lateral move from the 60D IQ wise.
A second thought of mine would be to just get a 6D or something and sell it once the 5D Mk4 comes out in case it has this feature, but would the resale value even make it worth it? Considering the 60D is now only worth something like 500 w/kit lens, what could be the drop off of the 6D in a year? Or would it be worth looking at a used 5Dmk2 or mk3?
All this and at the same time I window shop at used MF digitals, being tempted by CL posts like a 645AFD w/leaf aptus 2 back >_>
I feel like I'm hopeless haha.
And to sort of explain why this feature is important to me, while I love taking photos, it's a hobby. Video on the other hand is more of a profession for me, and the benefits of this AF for run and gun video is super appealing to me. Just trying to find the most cost effective way of getting everything I want in a camera haha.
