I grew up in Montana and Wyoming.... so I can relate. However, we now live in Florida. We have a few nights below freezing each winter.... just enough to remember water can freeze outside. ;)

Sorry, can't relate! We get zero snow and temperatures never drop below 40F here. 70F now...

You and my cousin! He lives in a 'burb of San Diego. I get enough of this from him. :) But, thanks anyway. We are seriously considering moving to Hawaii in a year or so. Two serious down-sides though:

1.) I live on a secluded farm in rural Northern Indiana. This property would be 7 bazillion dollars in Hawaii.
2.) My youngest grandchild is only 5. I don't want to miss him growing up.

We will see.

But, at least you have a Canon service center right in your town! That may, at least in a very small way, help to make up for the fact that you don't get to do any traditional winter photography.

Very true...less than 3 miles away. Have used it numerous times...drop it off on Monday morning and pick it up usually on Wednesday by end of day...

After using a 6D I'd rather cut off my hands than shoot with one. Besides the 5Dm3 will dropped ridiculously in price probably lower than a 6D in time lol.

Your comment would be more helpful if you could tell us what it is that you did not like about the 6D. What are you using as a primary camera body? In what ways do you find that body better suited to your photography? Answers to these questions could be helpful to the OP and others.

I have a 6D and am quite happy with it. But, I am a center-point shooter. I really like that the size, hand-fit, and controls are nearly identical to my 60D. I think the 60D is better at AI-Servo.

Please elaborate on your disdain for the 6D.

I'd put money on them being one of the people that can't make the simple adjustment from using the joystick for choosing the focus point to using the D pad. The 6D thread was full of people who seemed to be violently angry when it was first released who were very upset over this one small feature.

I remember that. Funny, I had a 5Dc with a joystick. I didn't use the stupid thing because I found the L/R U/D thing easier to maneuver. You get used to what you have. Humans don't like change.

I started with the D pad on the 60D so that's all I knew, and I really liked it. When I picked up a 50D as a second body, it took me some time to get used to the joy stick. Honestly I never experienced the "mushy" d pad so many complained about. My experience with the 2 years I owned was great. It was quick, intuitive and I never had a lens that ever needed MFA on it. And my flippy swiveley screen which was guaranteed to snap off never did. I wonder if they will ever add the articulating screen to a 1 or 5D. It really made a difference getting some low angle shots. I'm human and I hate change ;-)a

Oh, c'mon! 100" of snow and a whole ocean to push it into? Really? (jk, :) ) North Central Indiana averages 66" of snow every year to Boston's 43". Our record cold snap was, IIRC, 11 days where it never got above ZERO. It's all what you get used to.

I am sure someone from Montana will be along momentarily to tell us they get 66" of snow and subzero temperatures in May!
(They can keep it!)

Come back in July for tales of heat and humidity.

I never have and never will complain about the heat. Back to your original post, my 60D and 6D are keepers, I really have no reason to to ditch them for newer gear. The only way I could see selling the 6D is if the 6DII comes with the flip out screen, I use it a lot on my 60D, but I don't see that happening. Lenses, strobes and camera accessories is another story...............

Two bodies I regret selling were my 60D and a really good copy of the 5Dc. But I can honestly say I am completely satisfied with my gear. I need to sell some of it off, since I still have some EF S lenses and the only crop I have is my 1D4 at 1.3, not a 1.6. I realized that the only things I find myself needing (wanting) are accessories.

I regret selling my first 5D. Used a 5D2 for awhile but wanted another 5D so went and got another. But that copy was just not the same like the first.

Just recently upgraded from the 5D to the 6D for better lcd screen, high iso, and auto iso. I thought my first 5D copy was good but this 6D is even better. Don't think I'll need another body upgrade for at least another 5+ years.

This is interesting. I have read online photography forums for years, and this is the first mention I've ever seen of copy variation in camera bodies. What is it that is different from your first 5D to the next one you got?
