I keep the 70D for birding. It has a great AF system, so I am hesitant to get rid of it.

I didn't move from a crop sensor to the 6D, but from a 5D.

There's not a single thing I regret about getting the 6D. Not one...


Just shut up and smile...

Well, in my first couple days of limited use I can so far say that I am pretty thrilled with the 6D. I think we are going to get along just fine :)

As much as I'd like to keep the 70D as well, I just don't think I need it. I only got it a year ago and so selling it was part of my plan to offset another camera purchase. I have a 40D that I'll keep just in case or if I feel I really need a crop.

Thanks again all!

I'm pretty thrilled with my 6D too, but there has a very big "But" in what I did. I was looking very hard between the 6D and the 5DIII. I came very close to pulling the trigger on the 5DIII and a TC 1.4II ( fleabay Grey Market ), so much so I put my 60D and the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 up for sale in the forum. What changed for me was I got paranoid with the fleabay grey market and I have a decent TC that is 1.6X that doesn't change the Lens f-stop ( 60D ) and ended up buying the 6D Kit from PMI, authorized Canon Dealer. I took my 60D and Lens off the for sale list. I'm glad I made that Call, the 6D is a amazing Camera in what I want to do with it, mainly Landscapes, Portrait and low light, 60D for fast stuff, cropping down and longer reach. For me, the 60D Compliments the 6D. When I do my part, the 6D is no slouch, it can take fast moving Objects...............

I use 6d for landscape and portrait and event and some sports. I use 70d for video and wildlife and so far it is working for me

The same here. I didn't feel the 7D resale value would benefit me as much as having the added versatility of a second body. I also have an emotional attachment to a certain EF-S 15-85mm lens, between it and crop factor the 7D wasn't going anywhere.

We think a lot alike. There is a magic in the 7D/15-85 combo! Main reason I kept my 7D as well.

I do not see a magic of 7D/15-85 (in my case it is a 70D) vs. the 6D/24-105. The "magic" of a crop camera is its better suitability to shooting distant objects like wildlife.
