If you can pull it off financially, keep the 7D and add the 6D. The 6D/7D combo is perfect IMO. Use the 7D for fast action and FL-challenging situations (like birding in my case), and the 6D 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.

Are these self-portraits? If so, what was your technique?

yeah no self-portraits but I could totally see as why you would think they are because of the weird crop. Just trying different things I guess.

Definitely not self portraits. But Alex is an exceptional portrait photographer, always love his work :cool:

@ Alex Takes Photos: I have this weird habit of always assuming that someone's avatar is their portrait, and I assumed you were a woman. I'm still not sure. But no matter. The reason I asked if they were self portraits is that I'd like to make some and always wondered what's the best way to do it.

Yeah, sounds like a dumb question, but still I'm interested in knowing how people do it and focus properly. Do they use remotes? Put an object on a stool, focus, and then use the timer?

I use the timer,but never seem to get the focus right.

Great pics, by the way. She's pretty. Good lighting.

The 200 2.8L ii has been an outstanding performer for me and I highly recommend it for its AF, colors, contrast and manageable size.

I got mine for $520 like new and paid $10 for a NIB hood. You can pick up the first edition of this lens for close to $400 sometimes and the IQ is identical.

i dont shoot portrait
only macro photos
but this is a try with the 6D + 200 2.8L II
i like this lens , its look like the 135L
