After 3 years of using my 50D + 17-55 f/2.8 combo, I’ve decided to upgrade the body.
The main reason is that I’d like a better high ISO performance, and for that I think 6D is a better choice than 7D. So it turns out I’m not only upgrading the body, I’m also selling my 17-55 and replacing with a full-frame-compatible lens.
24-70 f/2.8 seems ridiculously expensive, especially for a lens without image stabilization. I’m thinking of buying the 24-105 f/4 but it’s been on the market for so long, I start to wonder if a second edition is in Canon’s pipeline any time soon?
I really don’t want to find myself in the situation which I had some time ago, when I forked out £1500 for a brand new 70-200 f/2.8 IS just to find out 2 months later that a second edition has hit the market…
