I don't know, $2000 for a 6D and a 24-105L new from B&H is a pretty snazzy deal. http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …OS_6D_Digital_C​amera.html (external link)

The 6D via Canon refurb CPL would still run around $1450 in this state anyways, and picking up a used 24-105L from the boards in like new condition would be around $640, putting this B&H deal over those options.

I addressed that in my other reply. I don't understand those replies either.

Of course the "cute" posters that made those negative replies have gone into hiding. It's a shame they won't stay there.

We should try to understand what's happening here. These "cute" comments weren't aimed at RWK. These people could care less about him (nothing unusual there). In reality, these comments were aimed at the 6D which is typical of this group.

I don't blame you for wanting a 6D. I bought mine a couple months ago and can't imagine I will ever regret it. I had the Rebel XS, the EOS M, the T2i and the 50D. All were excellent cameras, but the 6D is heaps better. My pictures are coming out sharper than ever and with a more realistic look.

It doesn't perform better than the T2i I owned, but since I don't shoot sports or birds in flight, etc. it doesn't matter.

Get yourself one. Heck, get yourself a 5D classic first. You'll be amazed at how pleasing full frame is.

While at LegoLand, I noticed a lot of people are carrying Nikons. Yesterday at DisneyLand, I noticed 1 Nikon & tons of Canons. The pinch lens caps look cool, I'm still running around with the old style.

A week ago I got Sensei pinch style caps for all my lenses that didn't have pinch style caps. Got them the day before, they fit fine. B&H did not have Canon ones in the sizes I needed...

Since you seem to be talking about my comments, i'll address you.

This has nothing to do with the 6D.
I have no problems with the 6D. In fact, i've been watching the 6D/24-105 deals these past 2 weeks, and would love to get one... but can't afford the needed change from my EF-s to EF lenses.
And no.. i'm not jealous of the OP.


What kind of bothered me about the post, actually, was that the OP said he loves this camera... after taking but 1 shot. Sounds very melodramatic to me, like something a 13 year old girl would post on FB.

Maybe if they OP had worded it differently, i would have reacted differently, in fact i'm sure i would have.

Now, i know i'm a sh*t-disturber on here a lot, but as i see it.. you are more so.

So, loosen the wad in your panties, and move on.

Across the country here at Disney World, I saw a lot of Nikons--but that didn't shock me. (Unrelated, but all the WDW photographers used Nikon gear)

What did shock me were all the Sony a3x and a5x series cameras I saw, which maybe made up roughly 15% of the dslr bodies I saw over three days on property. Nikon represented about 25% with the odd Pentax thrown in. The rest were Canon, mostly Rebel series with a XXD or XD series thrown in (with no 1D series),

I'm already around $5,000 for this trip. When the time comes to switch to FF, I know new lens are needed. Probably need at least 2 lens to start, for what I like to do. Driven by Samy's Camera twice so far, tempted to go in & look. I can even rent, if I wanted to.

Except that she would post it on Instagram instead, because now her mom and all her friends' moms are on Facebook.

LOL. I'll have to check out Instagram. Never been there. My kids talk about it all the time. Cameras are just like everything else. Always changing & updating. There will be tons of advancements in cameras, before I'm ready to replace my T4i.

I've had my iPhone almost 2 years now. So just started texting 2 years ago. I'll check out Instagram next.

I tend to keep things & use them for awhile. I'm not out to upgrade & replace everytime something comes out.

Used my XT for years.

My car is 22 years old & 317,000 miles.

I'll use my T4i for a few more years. I'm sure the 6D will be replaced & updated many times over by then.

Heya,

Speaking of all the sightings, when I go out, I almost always see Nikon shooters. I was at La Chua trail the other day and finally saw an obvious Canon shooter as they had a big whine lens, but clearly had no clue what to do with it as they were not taking photos of all the birds/gators, but rather just carrying it. Other than that, when I'm in my tyipcal spot (Cedar Key) the tourists and locals always seem to have Nikon or Sony. I can't really even remember last time I saw any Canon folk. Not that it actually matters at all, just thought about it when everyone brought it up.

Huge respect for keeping a vehicle that long. My jeep is 20 years old this year and about 211k miles. Still going. It's amazing not having a car payment. Goes towards so many other things.

This kind of goes hand in hand with cameras/lenses. You're right that the 6D will be replaced and updated. The next few years are actually going to be significant for dSLR, since not much has truly changed in the past 10 years (sure things have changed, but not a massive leap actually). Now there's a whole new market to fight against, sales going down, they have to do something to really keep it up. So I imagine they will finally release something they have sitting for a rainy day.

That said, there are reasons to upgrade from the T4i, even if quality isn't a big difference. I for one am ready to get a second camera strictly to have MFA built in. It's actually quite important to me these days. Also, some limited weather resistance. Those two features are really starting to get my attention after playing with different cameras and options. As much as I want better ISO performance, those three things together really are making me move towards a camera purchase soon. The beauty is, it's always great to have a backup camera!

Very best,

Exact opposite experience for me. Where I am, Canon shooters outnumber Nikonians 5 to 1.

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.
