Wow, buyer's remorse didn't take long to set in here, did it? Have fun with the 6D. It's a pretty nice camera. But why sell the 7D? Have a little fun comparing the two. Life is short. Live a little :)

If you can afford it I would say that pair of cameras would cover everything most would ever need camera wise. Enjoy

If you make money off your gear I would keep the 7D. You need to have a backup when Murphy comes around.

But if you need the money to help cover the cost SELL IT NOW, the price is gonna drop so much when the 7DM2 comes out soon.

I want a FF, but not at the loss of my 7D. It is too good a camera for me to let go.

5D III someday, perhaps, and keep the 7D for a backup and for sports, birds, etc.

Definitely keep the 7D. They compliment each other well.

That's a good price. Don't know why you have regret unless you took out a loan to get it or knew you should have been spending it on paying off debt.
Keep both. Great combo!

Lastly, ENJOY! :)

From that eBay seller that was advertised by Fred Miranda in his forums? I impulsively pulled the trigger on a 6D this morning, too, but from an authorized Canon dealer (different seller). Along with a 17-40L and the 70-200L with their respective lens filters.

Jake, is that a statement about gear, or about your age? I've been on the dark side of 50 for sometime. I know photogs who have more invested in equipment than I put in my first house.
