Is the 6D still the best bang for your buck when it comes to a canon full frame?

Maybe so - it depends on what type of shooting you do, and if the 6D meets your needs.
BHP sells it for $1499 plus 4% rewards and a few free goodies. The 5D III will cost you
another $1k.

I have two cameras, the 1D4 and the 6D. The first for action and air show photography,
the 6D for every thing else. The 6D is my go-to camera for event photography.

The 6D gives me great IQ, and I can crop the crap out of an image and still retain good IQ.
The good high ISO works well for museum shots. I love the small body size.

For me it's the best bang for your buck full frame Canon camera.

I agree that having a crop and FF can be really nice.

Also agree that since you have a modern/current camera now, that waiting might prove beneficial. I think the next 6D will move up in the food chain, significantly, and be a 5DIII with a kick ass sensor. I bet it is shipping by the first week of March.

And I bet it will cost a heck of a lot more than version 1.

I am looking for a portrait / low light body to compliment my 7d Mark ii which I use for wildlife and sports. I find that my AF is hit or miss in low light.

The 6D center focus point is pretty good in low light. That plus clean ISOs puts it under the "best bang for your buck" category for me. You can get the original 5D and 5DII but im not sure how low light AF performance goes compare to the 6D.

The 6D in low light is absolutely amazing

If this is why you want a full frame camera, then the 6D is probably the best Canon body you can buy, regardless of price. Well...ok, the new 5D MKIV is a tiny bit better, but not for $2000 more.

Also built in WiFi...I love being able to put on tripod and trigger from my smartphone. Even during studio shoots, I will shoot headshots triggered from my smartphone while the 6D is on a tripod. Being able to interact with people without the camera in my face can really bring out some nice expressions.

WiFi triggered for Astro and landscape is great too!
