I love my 50D.
But we are all just human and when we have something more convenient, we quickly get used to it and the old stuff seems not usable anymore.
I use a 6D Mark II now most of the time.

But the old 50D still can catch a swallow in flight equipped with the Sigma 150-600mm :)

Anyone still rocking the 50D? I took these from my front yard this past September. A small brush fire started up only about half a mile from my house. These guys put it out quickly. No houses lost and no damage done. There's a pond near my house where the helicopter picked up water from. He and the other helicopter on the job came in so low they rattled my windows. Lots of noise. Cool to watch though.

I sold mine 2019 year to get the 7D just to realise that the image quality is worse.

Now I decided to just get the best :)

The 7D Mark II WOW super fast super responsive and image quality is awesome! Better than the 80D I had for a short time.

I've got my eye on the 7D2 and on the 6D2. Haven't decided between the two yet. I'm leaning toward 6D2 for full frame and swivel screen but not sure yet. My next major purchase will be a new laptop since my almost 9 year old computer isn't doing too well. For that reason, a new camera is a little ways down the road yet.

I own both.
The 6D Mark II has the better image quality for landscapes and high ISO wildlife images.

The speed and the autofocus accuracy of the 7D Mark II is another class!
And the extended reach and resolution of the crop sensor you can not match with the full frame.

The 7D Mark II has an really sharp image. The older 7D was way worse, kinda too soft! And the High ISO ist top notch for its class; the old 7D had a very ugly high ISO pattern very difficult to mask in Lightroom. The Mark II has very fine grain and less color noise.

When you are not shooting ISO 6400 all the time, I would consider the 7D Mark II for sports and wildlife and the 6D Mark II for portrait photography.

For landscape you better take a Nikon Z5, Z6 ...
All the mentioned Canon cameras has far less dynamic range and even banding when you shoot sunsets and want to relight the foreground!

Sony has awful colour science...

Thanks so much for the info!!!

I can only really afford one new camera at a time lol (and not before I replace my almost 9 year old laptop). The 6D2 has my eye for high ISO performance and swiveling screen. Will the 7D2 at least fair better against my 50D for noise performance? Most of the time, due to life with 3 small children, I can only ever make it out for some wildlife photography in the evening as the sun is going down. For a lens as slow as a Tamron 150-600mm, I tend to have to keep the ISO turned up a little bit to get enough light (not too much over ISO 640 generally). My 50D does ok but obviously, better is better.
