Just got a 6DII, should I keep my 7D?

I just got a new 6DII and 24-70 2.8L II and have been using my 7D for over 5 years but is far from worn out. Should I keep the 7D and my 10-22 and 50 1.4, or sell those and move completely to full frame, perhaps with a 6D 1 as a spare?

I shoot everything from family portraits/walk around, to automotive stills, to landscape. Not much action shooting or sports at all. I'm also far from an expert, but am good enough to 'feel dangerous'.

Thoughts or suggestions?

If you don't shoot fast moving subjects or need the extra perceived REACH the crop body will give you then sell it.
On the other hand you are not going to get much for a 7Dc so you might just keep it. The 10-22 is a great lens.

You could always keep the 7D, and get yourself a nice Canon 70-200mm f4L telephoto zoom. You will have a nice full frame / crop camera combo and three good zoom lenses to choose from. And yes, the 10-22 is a nice ultra-wide lens for a crop camera.

i'd for sure swap the 10-22mm for a FF UWA...you can keep the 50mm f1.4 for sure, it'll be fine on your 6D...as for selling the body, you can probably get like $400 for it or so...is that worth it over having it as an emergency back-up? I don't really sell bodies, as i feel like by the time i upgrade to a new camera the value is so low, that it's worth more to me to keep to have a 'beater' body that i don't have to worry about

Sell the 7d and 10-22, get the Sigma 12-24, it will be wider than your apsc/efs combo.

I used to own the 7D (briefly) and used the 10-22 a lot. Both are still quite capable items. That said, even the 17-40 looks better on full frame than the 10-22 does on crop. Your 7D/10-22 will net you enough cash to buy a brand new shiny 17-40. If you can afford the 16-35 f/4L, all the better.

I currently use the Sigma 12-24 II on a 6D. Nice. Wide.

I just picked up a 16-35L for the 6D, so I may sell the 10-22 from the 7D and decide on a different lens to keep on the 7D.

Tried that. Didn't work for me.
