Okaaaaay...I've done the 'search' and read a lot of great posts but thought it best to still seek specific advice...
I'm a hobbyist, not a Pro, so budget means a lot when I have other hobbies too...
I have currently a 7D with a host of decent lenses as per my signature below and some more not listed...
My preferred shooting is Wildlife and Nature - I like and use the extra reach that I get from the APS-C sensor as well as the FPS.
However, I also like to shoot at night and indoors and feel a Full Frame would be of great benefit for these reasons. I also like to visit new cities here in Europe and think that a Full Frame might be a better option for the improved image quality.
I decided to treat myself to a new camera body for my birthday next week but find the price tag of my first choice, the 5D Mark III a little steep and so imagined that I might find it a decent replacement for my 7D and just have the one body so as to justify the purchase (I'd then sell the 7D).
But I then got to thinking that I'll miss the 7D for my Wildlife shots and when a 7D replacement comes out, I'll want that too!
My question is then...is the 6D a great Full Frame compromise as a second body to sit alongside my 7D? I don't use the video features at all, I should add, only stills.
The concern I have with the 6D is that the magazine reviewers tend to see it as a 3 or 4 star camera whereas the 5D 3 is a 5 star buy. I don't want to find I end up with a camera I'll regret purchasing.
Just to add...I live in the UK with no camera outlet near me to allow me to try before I buy.
All advice much appreciated
