Re: 6Dmk1 vs 80D? Upgrading from a T5i.

[ Edited ]

I didn't read all the replies but from your post consider this 'kit', the EOS 80D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon.  It'll blow the doors off anything close to the price point.

 

BTW, there is no 6D Mk I.  There is a 6D and a forthcoming 6D Mk II.  Neither of which I was or am impressed.  Check out the 80D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens.

"... I will say that 98% of the AF system bashing is simply regurgitation of the crap written on the internet by people that don't even own the camera."

 

I totally agree.  It happens a lot doesn't it? Smiley Sad  Not simply about the 6D but in general.

" I've been using the T5i for about 4 years now (laugh all you want, I know it's a Rebel and I need an upgrade)"

 

Gee, now I feel bad too.  Smiley Sad  I made a living using Rebels.  Five of them in fact.  Smiley Wink

Indeed it does.

What makes it even more interesting is when you own and use the camera being bashed. I read this garbage and I think....'gee, I must have gotten the only 6D with a good AF system. How lucky I am.' Smiley Wink

There is nothing at all wrong with the T5i. The performance of any camera depends almost entirely on who is pressing the shutter release button.

 

I have gotten tremendous results from the 500D and 600D that I had.

 

I shot this with my 600D. We were both pretty happy with it.

Re: 6Dmk1 vs 80D? Upgrading from a T5i.

I looked at that lens, and I think that might be a future purchase but I went ahead and just got the body from B&H. Came with a bag, SD card, some batteries, and some other goodies.

I understand the 6Dmk1 how it's not called that, but considering the mk2 came out just thought I'd discriminate that a little better. Tried to not confuse people.

Planning on just skipping to whatever the 5D offering is there in a few years after my 80D runs its course. Thanks for the suggestion!

Re: 6Dmk1 vs 80D? Upgrading from a T5i.

Respectfully, I'm not getting a new camera because I think the T5i is terrible. I love the camera and have been shooting with it for years now. It's just time I get a bigger body with more updated specs, and the 80D even throws in WiFi with 1080p/60fps video.

Pic looks great, trust me I'm right on the "equipment doesn't matter, it's how you use it" train, it's just time I upgrade. Thanks for your thoughts. Keep rockin' that rebel Smiley Wink

Re: 6Dmk1 vs 80D? Upgrading from a T5i.

Good to know, I was hoping to hear from an actual 6D owner! Part of the reason I posted here is because I know absolutely nobody who owns a 6D! All I kept hearing from people was "5Dmk3 you gotta buy the 5Dmk3" and I was trying to hear someone recommend it.

Went with the 80D, the 6D was too big of a step if eventually I'm going to get into the 5D territory. Seemed like a great camera other than the (apparently bogus) crap about the AF. Thanks for replying! Great to hear a 6D owner's perspective.

Not trying to bash Rebels! Very surprised more "professionals" don't actually use them, they're great cameras! Just tried to avoid any onslaught of "Well anything's better than a Rebel" comment from the owner of like 7 5Dmk4s.

The Rebels have a special place in my heart. Smiley Happy

Re: 6Dmk1 vs 80D? Upgrading from a T5i.

Actually I purchased the last five Rebels, all XTi's, a few years before I retired.  I had several more of the even older models.  All my second shooters used the XTi's. When I retired I gave all of them away.

 

Make sure you keep the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens in mind.  It will transform your new 80D.  IMHO, the 80D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens will out preform even the new 6D Mk II.  Remember it is always the lens!
