If you had $3,000 to spend, what would you do?

if I had 3K to spend, I'd go on holiday & use the kit I already have - It's old, but works just fine.

I just read through this thread. I am totally shocked that only one person came up with the right answer (see quote). With the OP's gear, and $3,000, I'd buy a 10-22 and a plane ticket to Hawaii, or New Zealand. It seems gear-heads and G.A.S prevail in this neck of the woods.

Says the person that changed bodies a couple of times only to land on a 6D for exactly the same reasons stated in the OP. ;)

My 60D could shoot ISO 6400, but it was a bit noisy up there, and required some heavy-handed PP. As mentioned, I bought the 6D purely for clean ISO 6400 work.

If I were the OP, I'd buy a used 7D and a Sony a7R with a dumb mount adapter.


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

I personally don't care how the bodies look as long as they work! :)

Would your answer be different if I said I have $3,000 to spend on this camera upgrade? It's not like I have $3,000 to spend total to my name and it's mutually exclusive.

Take a look at my mini-reviews list in my signature, and check out the 7D high ISO thread. The same discussion points would work with your equipment.

If you work on exposure with the 60D, and do some post processing techniques to combat the noise first, then general image cleanup second, your results might be better than you would think at ISO 6400.

Full size ISO 6400 of an image that is exposed much like your ISO 5000 sample sent to me, except I opted to go higher on the ISO range to expose more to the right.

Here is a sample ISO 6400. Bottom is OOC JPG, middle is corrected raw from DPP, and top is post processed, these are at 100% crops.

With $3000, I'd put it away and keep an eye on the Canon Direct Store for a refurbished 5D MkIII or for the release of the 7D MkII, whichever comes first. But I'm not going to hold my breath on the 7D MKII.

Why a 2x? A 1.4x is better for both nearly equivalent reach as an APS-C with minimal IQ degradation and only a 1 stop loss in light. A 2x means you will be shooting the FF at 2 stops higher ISO as the equivalent APS-C, negating the 2 stop advantage the 5D3 might have over crop bodies.
