if you don't need the 1/8000th speed, 6D is really good.

I want to shoot sports so not too sure what I really need... I could get the 6D for full framesness n use the 60d for sports or ..l just get a mark 3 n have all I need in one Camera.. IDK 3000$ on a camera is a lot that's what's holding me back but I'm watching tons of reviews on both camera.. I like that the mark 3 af point system has so many settings and the 6FPS help with shooting sports.

honestly if you are shooting sports id look at the 7d so that way you get the crop factor and also 8FPS and some other cool features like 25-29 raw burst before the buffer hiccups and the great af system (granted no 5d mark III but the crop factor is nice)

i think full frame is awesome and hoping to move up but i think that a 7D would be better.

i am shooting a 7d and have a few thousand shots from flag football my son did this summer and i was very impressed at its handling and wouldnt have done so well if i were using a lesser camera with a lesser AF system.

just my 2 cents though. i understand that want for the 5d mark III because im getting that one maybe but for sports i would surely look into the 7D because A. it will save you some coin and get you better photos in certain situations and get you the reach of the crop sensor and B. will allow you to spend some money on a fast prime like a 300mm f/4 IS or the 400mm 5.6 just depends on what you are after as far as length you could also slide a 1.4x TC on that 300mm f/4 and still be with in reach and get the auto focus to work still :)

Car events, my little brothers in high school doin track n other events each season so I want something with semi good FPS. I want full frame for mainly cleaner ISO performance at the higher numbers.Heres a shot I took with the canon 60D which wasn't too bad for sports. But mainly I love to shoot cars. May damper into portraits one day.heres a shot I took with the canon 60D 17-55 2.8 .would of been better if I had a longer lens

Haven't really given the 7D a chance played with it a few times but not a real chance . Plan on keeping the 60D still but the itch for full frame is hitting me. I know it would be cheaper the just invest in glass or just get a 7d but I gotta way my options. Watching tons of YouTube videos on each camera but the mark 3 videos keep being the ones played lol. I'm going to watch more 7d reviews..

I own a 7D and for what you are looking to do that 2 FPS and the buffer seem to be the way to go but i truly really understand what you are wanting i am in that same boat and really really really want the 5d mark III but im having to be sensible and think that glass is the way to go what happens if the 70D and the possible 7d mark ii are where the money is for what we do (sports and birds) and we end up with the 5d mark III and wish we had waited for one of these? lenses are where the real investment should be while bodies should be a second though not that they are a bad second though but the glass is what makes the most of the pictures we take the body helps but its not the main factor for sharpness and color reproduction.

Yeah your right... Just watched video on the 7 D autofocus system.. It's very interesting to say the least..almost like the mark 3 in regards to the settings etc..I like the idea of more autofocus points an the different setups...
