    Let's know how you get on with the 6D. I'm thinking of getting a 7D need the crop, but was thinking of also getting a used 5DMK2 for landscape and studio.

    I wanted a 7d for its frame rate. I am interested in how the 6d is too. I could perhaps lose the 5d2 for one if fps up to it

    I was looking at the 7D but opted for the 6D with its full frame goodness, 4fps is adequate for me.

    I use my old 20d in the studio and now as my back up.

    The 60 is marginally quicker but still bogs now and again on full res captures on burst for action capture even on fast cards.

    @Markos, Is that the Tamron 70 - 300?
    If so I love that lens, I used mine to shoot that photo of the fox in the other section.

    Ive got a Nikon D3200, with the 18-55mm nikon lense, and a Sigma 70-300mm Zoom. Brought it a few years back. Got a few filters, lens hood, remote button and a tripod.

    Also added the Nikon Speedlight SB400 flash, as I am already learning about shadows from the flash as I teach myself. I am a trillion miles from a pro, but I have taken some good shots with it.

    Just got a nice bonus so thinking about an upgrade. Do I go for the 70D (like the crop sensor) and a 6D or just bit the bullet and get the 1DX?

    Depends what you hope to shoot. Would you get vfm out of the 1 dx. I know it's awesome but if it'd not see much use....

    The 1DX is a great camera, but I do like the crop of the 70D. Your properly right I might just keep the 50D as a back up and put the change from the 70D towards a nice bit of glass.

    Glass is where it's at. My 60 d provides decent images on an L series and is fast enough to capture motorsports

    All my lenses are "L" except 2. The canon 50mm F1.8 and my Sigma 10-20mm F1.4.

    It's a nice lens but it doesn't get a lot of use. The Canon 24-105mm F4 L is my lens of choice for everyday stuff, and then the 300mm F4 L or 70-200mm F2.8 L for Motorsport and wildlife.

    What I don't have is a nice macro lens

    I have a 1DMk1, great for banging nails in, its a right old hefty bit of kit.
    Go for the 6D, had mine just over a month now and its fantastic.

    Again the 6D is a great camera but I would loose the crop factor.

    Just got home and my darling wife has got me a Canon 7D.

    I had to check the car first for dents and scrapes ;-)
