wait for the 5dmkX to come out - I hear it will blow the D810 away.

I don't think it is a personal attack on you.... but more to get an idea of your experience or your skill level with gear.
Many shooters use the gear as a crutch. Not saying this is you ..... just a general observation.

The other thought is we, as shooters get GAS.
Meaning: Gear Acquisition Syndrome. We see something cool - techie new toy and convince ourselves it will makes us the best photographer ever!
We do this without really asking the question from a business perspective.

Focusing issues can be gear related, user related or a combination of

Thank you! I'll be starting real state photography soon. Besides that, weddings and newborns are the most I do.

I switched from Canon to Nikon about 3 years ago, and I've owned all the cameras mentioned in this thread at 1 point. The D810 is my favorite by a pretty wide margin.

The D750 is good, but build quality and a few minor issues keep it from being great.

For D810 vs 5dMk3, it depends on how you shoot and how often you push shadows. There is a large difference in how they handle shadow recovery.

Thank you.

My phone keeps autocorrecting the word unhappy. I'm sorry I still posted as "happy".

Vees_3188, I think mjgphotoz's response is perfect.

The 6D's AF system is clearly from another era, and it was IMO unwise for Canon to include in that camera as it was behind the times. It was an odd configuration — one super center point (cross point, -3ev) with 8 outer points that were professionally worthless. When it came out, some joked and called it a 'cyclops'. Fine for personal use or fair weather portraits, but for low light wedding receptions it was not competitive with so many other cameras of its time.

We're all just voices on the internet, but renting/borrowing a

My view is, as a business, I have to take a business view on these kinds of decisions.

So, will a switch, update, lens upgrade etc.. somehow make me more money? If the answer is yes, it's a good decision!
