out of my car during the night while my car was in the garage. Cops tell me this sort of thing is becoming very common iun my rural area.
My question is - having now lost my 40D and 7D (with a EOS 17-40 and a Tamron 150-600) do I want to go to a 6D for full frame, or stick with the cropped sensor and try the 7DII?
Not sure I will replace at all - have serious health issues and haven't gotten out much and when I do, there are very few subjects here this year. But I did enjoy the hobby and this forum

Oh no! Nancy, I am so sorry to learn of this.
And I suppose the odds of your gear being recovered are slim at best?
As it was stolen from your car in the garage, so basically at home, will your regular insurance cover the loss?

Also sorry to hear of your health issues. Bad health is such a nuisance. And I'm guessing, the stress of having your gear stolen won't do you any good either.

I can't help with camera advice (as I've never shot with a 6D) but if you can afford new gear and still enjoy shooting and being on the forum, then I think it's worth every penny, whatever you end up buying.

:love:

apparently cameras are covered with separate riders, but they will only pay the depreciated value of the items. Which in the case of my equipment is nowhere near the replacement cost, so I had cancelled it years ago.
the police have the serial numbers of it all, and there is some chance the stuff might show up in the local pawn shops, but I am sure the perps didn't treat things with tender loving care. And I had just had everything cleaned and adjusted early in the Spring.
Thanks for your sympathy, Levina - it means a lot
. Still not sure what I will do.

Sorry to hear, that's terrible! I looked at your posts and since it appears you are a birder, I would suggest that a 7D2 would be far preferable to a 6D. I have both and the 7D2 does birding duties while the 6D is for everything else.

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.

thanks for the input - but I've gone ahead and ordered the 6D because of it's low noise reputation and also because it's having a promo right now AND there are no birds of note here this year, so I'm thinking I have to branch out a bit.

Nancy, I've branched out a bit over the last three years or so, although birds are still my favourite subject, and I would love to have a 6D, even for birds. I've shot birds with an old 5D classic for 6 months some four years ago and loved that full frame goodness. Will you be getting another one of the 150-600mm zooms? I've read that the 6D and Tamron 150-600 do really well together.

Really sorry to hear about the gear, Nancy! :( I hope we'll see you posting even with the new camera; always enjoy your shots.

So sorry to hear your gear was stolen Nancy. To be ripped off any time is bad but when you're struggling with health issues it's that much worse. Congrats on the new gear, I hope you thoroughly enjoy it. Wishing you healing and much better days ahead.

I know how you feel, I've had a few incidents of stolen stuff -- violated! :(

Health issues are of course another matter, but it can add up together. I'm in a process of recovering from a few issues myself, so I can relate!

Glad to have you back, Tony. Was wondering why you were just now replying to some of these threads.

Well, hey Larry -- I've been on a long slow road, am bit by bit catching up, though I'm not yet what you'd call "up and at 'em". My daughter has all my photo gear stored at her house in her garage, as I bounce around, but we talk about getting out and about!

Thanks for your thoughts!

Sorry to hear about the theft, and your health.

The 6D is a good camera, I use it at work. I think you'll like it.
