6D over 5D for me. Also one of the 35mm in place of 50mm.

I think that question would come down to more so if you need the 1.2 or not. if you don't need 1.2 I'd say the 6D 1.4 combo wins out. With that said wouldn't a 6D + 50 1.2 by cheaper than a 5D2 with the same lens?

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

You can replace lenses easily. Replacing bodies is (comparatively) a pain in the ass.

6D + 50 f/1.2 and replace it with a 50 1.4 if and when you need the cash.

You seem to be combining two variables at the same time. Is there a price complement, such that each package costs the same?

I rather love the 6D + 1.2.

I voted for 6d + 1.4, although my 1.4 was a sigma.


6D + enough lenses for now.
