This thread should (have) put a restraining order on me
Trying to decide just how much I want this camera for $3,500 (more like $3,375 after some ebay bucks + cashback). Oddly, it's my wife again who is rushing me to buy one. I know it would be a nice tax return write off for my business. But I'm almost paralyzed when I have to buy something without finding an awesome deal of some sort.
For real estate projects I'm set: Sony A7RII + Metabones IV + Canon glass. Off camera flashes are controlled by a transmitter that doesn't really care that it's attached to a Sony body, it works well (originally designed for Canon though).
But for events and weddings, I'm stuck a little bit. My #1 body is my 5D3. Then #2 is a tie between my 6D and 80D depending on what is happening around me. Obviously I prefer the 6D's IQ but the 80D's AF, including the DPAF is way more advanced, easier to work with. I really enjoy shooting photos at the reception using live view and DPAF on the 80D.
So basically I know I need to sell my 6D, probably wife's T4i, and maybe keep the 80D (because of it's articulated screen which my wife loves). Plus the 80D would/could become her camera to use replacing the T4i (mostly photographing her students working at the lab.) And I could still use it for wildlife but the 5DIV may now be better for that too with the MP count.
What do you guys think?
