I'm planning on getting the 6D MK II, but what lens to get with it? My budget is $1100.
Photography is my hobby. I shoot mostly landscape, nature, travel, macro, not a lot of portraits. I rented a 6D MK I with the 24-105 MK I on a recent trip to Yellowstone and I was mostly satisfied, except the AF drove me batty (focus, recompose, focus, recompose...). Also, needed a second lens with longer reach that was lighter than my 100-400 MK I when hiking. I ended up tossing my SL1 and the EF-S 55-250 in my backpack.
Should I just get the 24-105 MK II version and keep using the SL1 with the 55-250 when needed?
Should I get the 24-105 MKI because the reviews for the MK II version don't show a big improvement over the original? If I go that route, should I think refurbished, white box/grey, or used? Then I would take the savings and pick up the 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM, and again should I go MK I, MK II, refurbished, grey or used?
I guess the 24-70 f/4 paired with the 70-300 is also a possibility if I can get a used 70-300 for cheap, but I kinda hate to change lens all the time. Right now, my favorite combo is 15-85 on my crop body.
Thanks for your help!
