I have a 5D Mll and am thinking about a 6D has anyone gone that route and if so are you happy  with the change.

The Mark III is a fantastic camera and a noticeable upgrade.

I wouldn't do it. It isn't that better of a camera in the good spots and in some areas it is worse.

Lots of good thoughts in the thread. For my part, I'm not tempted to move from a 5DII to a 6D at all. Similarly, I'm not yet tempted by the 5DIII.

 

For landscape, event and portrait stills I don't see much to justify the move. And as far as AF goes, I've got a 7D for all that with extra reach to boot. 

 

If I were forced at gunpoint to choose one body it would be a 1DIV followed by a 5DIII.

If I had to rate them in order of "greatness", it would be..........:

1D Mk IV

5D Mk III

1D Mk III

5D Mk II

7D

All the rest.

IMHO, as always! Smiley Happy

 

I use all these so I have a fairly good working knowledge of each. And, of course, this assumes, you like me can not seem to part with 7 grand for a 1Dx. A few years ago, yes, I would have been all over one.
