After going back and forth between the original 6D and the mk2 version I decided to go with the good old original 6D.
I guess the expectations set by the first 6D were way high and everyone's expecting the mk2 to do miracles. While it is definitely an improvement it is not ground breaking and for me those improvements don't justify the extra cost. After all, I just wanted to finally get a FF camera. Are you guys going to upgrade? Judging by the images in the thread the original 6D is still a great camera for the money.

Anyway, just ordered, can't wait for the delivery! :-D
Will definitely contribute the thread once I get something nice out of it :)

I won't be upgrading anytime soon. I have several things holding back my full potential, and none of them are equipment related:) I looked through some of the posters' galleries that are complaining about the 6DII's shortcomings, and I can say they are in the same boat -- it's not the equipment holding them back:( Two main reasons to not upgrade, one: Magic Lantern is not available for 6DII; two: I just can't see a cost/benefit improvement, at least in my case.

I'm still going back and forth. My 80D is filling my current needs and I"m not really sure what the addition of FF is going to do to help me. It's a want vs need. I've been watching youtube videos all morning. The haters are out in force. Jared Polin did a pretty balanced commentary. I'm prob going to just keep plodding along developing craft until I hit a point where there is something specific I need.

I see what you're saying with want vs need. I'm definitely leaning more towards want category. There was a time when I was doing photography as a job and at that point my plan was to move to a full frame camera as I was mostly working with people photography and landscapes. I've got some decent primes but then I stopped that and moved to another career path. So I was left with that desire to upgrade to FF without an actual need. I do get to travel a lot and I feel that my 600D is starting to hold me back unless I have time and tripod which I don't usually have on business trips. So an upgrade was due. Might as well be a FF camera :)

Is that cardinal infected with the zombie virus?
Would guess it is immature but mine never have bald heads when colored out full red.

Possibly young still growing adult feathers?

Cardinals typically molt in late summer.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

My 6D has just arrived! I have to say, upgrading 600D to a 6D is a BIG step forward. I expected it to be good but it exceeded my expectations!
Always wanted to get a decent image of the milky way... and what better way to test a 6D if not by shooting in low light? :)

Nice pic. I went from 400D to 6D never regretted it at all.
