I current own: Canon 70-300mm L; Canon 70-200mm; Canon 400mm; Canon 24-105mm; Canon 85mm (the less expensive version); Canon 100mm Macro (the more expensive version and lastly Tamron 24-70mm 2.8.

With that collection of lenses, a full-frame is your upgrade over the 60D. Keep the 60D, though. It is worth more as a second/backup than its resale value.

Yeah i thought only briefly about selling my 60D, but it's not worth it. I'm keeping mine for sure, but I'm not sure what I'll end up using it for.

I held on to my 60D until last week when I realized I really couldn't remember the last time I used it. I let it go hoping someone will give it the attention it deserves.

if the seed to go to something new is planted, it's going to be hard to get it out until you actually own something new/different. so i say go for a used 5D2.

good luck anyways with what ever you choose.:)

The feedback and comments have been very helpful, exactly as intended. Although the 6D is slightly above my budget but not by that much I'm inclined to go with the 6D recommendation. Thank You for all the tips.

The OP is sitting on an already impressive collection of glass. What glass would you add to what he already has?

A nice 24 or 17mm TSE lens opens up a certain type of image.

With your lenses the 6d would be the perfect choice. You would see a much bigger difference with full frame rather than another crop camera. I have been seeing refurbs going for $1,200+.


6D, 5D, 7D, 50D, 40D, Xsi, PENTAX mx-1, Sony a6000, Sony a3000 too many lenses, flashes and aux. gear to list!:cool:
