Re: First third-party lens

"...or some other entry level full frame camera,..."

 

John,

There is no 'other' entry level FF cameras besides the 6D family (assuming there will be a Mk II).  That is, if you intend to stick with Canon.  Again, if you do stick with Canon the 6D or Mk II is THE choice for entry level..  If on the other hand you are switching brands and not wanting entry level, I can give you some tips on which FF I would buy.

 

IMHO, don't buy ef-s lenses.  You will only buy them twice if you do.

A lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.

Thanks, Ernie. I'm going to wait on the 6D Mark II, soon to be released at $1999, according to rumor. That's the body only, but priced about $100 less than the prior version at launch, I believe. In addition It will also be released as part of 3 different kits, according to what I've been reading. We'll have to see how close to reality the rumors are. Shouldn't have long to wait.

Two companies that I have found pretty unpredictable, Adobe and Canon.  Personally, I was not and am not a fan of the 6D but I know lot's of folks that are.

Re: First third-party lens

I recently bought the Sigma 18-200mm on Craigs List for $100.  Price was great and the lens is awesome for my hobby level photography.  yes there are many much better options, but for a walk around lens it is perfect for me.  Always check for used options first if you are on a budget or a hobby photographer.
