No doubt the 6D is better than a 5D2, but at present prices I can't see enough of a benefit to upgrade. My 5D2 delivers stunning print performance and I have a nasty feeling that if I upgrade to the 6D the money spent won't actually result in better prints.
I could be wrong of course, but that's the way my mind is going.
Exactly my thoughts. I don't feel the end result, prints, will show any difference at all. At a cost of about $900 to upgrade, I just don't see enough benefits to justify.
For me I got a new Ipad for Christmas and it needs a friend to play with....I have plenty of justification right there.
I would think a 6D would be mandatory then, perhaps even a moral imperative to purchase immediately, mustn't let your iPad get lonely...I can hear your iPad, it's sad, as there can be no justification for such prolonged torture
To answer your OQ MP, medical bills are postponing my 6D purchase, otherwise in spring it will/would join my 40D in harmony, sharing all but a 10-22mm bit of glass.
On another note, I thought the 5D3 was the 5D2's upgrade, at least that was what all the whining of high price was about. The 6D is simply an entry level body for those that want one, I don't see it as an upgrade from any former 5D body; all before were premium entries, the 5Dc being the 1st consumer level FF, the 5D2 blowing everyone away with it's near double MP/ISO specs and it's fantastic never before seen serious FF movie mode.
The 6D is a vertical move for the 60D, xxD and Rebel users, IMHO it wasn't targeted at the 5D2 owner, the 5D3 was...the lighter/smaller mag/polycarb body should be a small hint don't ya think
