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.

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

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?

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.

Mainly take candid photos of my lad and our two border collies but like everyone struggle to put the time I'd like to into it.

....Was looking at one earlier on this year and wasn't sure if I would use it.

Cheers Phil :friendly wink:

Only just bought it on Wednesday so only took a handful of test shots but it isolates the subject amazingly well and melts backgrounds completely. It's very front heavy so tries to tip the camera when hanging from the strap. Focus speed isn't as bad as you may have read using A1 Servo it's quite happy to take pics of moving subjects. On the flower pic the focus plane is about 2 inches deep on f1.2 to pick out the middle bud when checking for micro adjustment .....

I had the EF 100 f2.8 L macro before but never used it - just wasn't my thing but I'm not very creative. My 16-35 f4 has a macro function on it so that's useful to have if I ever need it.

Are you thinking 400 f5.6 prime or the 100-400 zoom ? Version 2 (or should I say ii) of the 100-400 f4.5-5.6 is getting some great reviews. Bought my last couple of lenses from Panamoz really good service and well packaged.

Canon man here..mainly shoot landscapes, love the night sky and then just general stuff like my cats.. They are great for practicing!! :)

EFS 18-135mm STM
EFS 55-250mm IS
EF 50mm F1.8

Looking to get a 70-200 L F2.8 down the line and possibly a 17-40 L.. Need to cram in some overtime though.

I have just completed my 1st wedding with the above kit as a favour for a mate. Turned out better than I thought tbh and I absolutely adore the 85mm! New favourite lens for the time being anyway. :)
