Re: Will my canon 80D lenses fit the canon 5D mark III?

EOS 6D Refurbished with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS Refurbished Lens Kit more expensive than if I bought them separately?
It is in Canon online store.
Thank you!

Each separate item is "on sale" right now, while the kit may not be.  If you look hard enough, you will find other similar questions.  I noticed a similar price discrepancy once, and took advantage of the lower pricing of those exact same separate items over the asking price for the kit.

 

Be aware that there are significant differences between a 6D and a 5D Series, most particulary when it comes to weahter sealing and Auto Focuc..  Differences that could justify taking a look at a refurbished 5D Mk III as a backup for a new 5D Mk IV, which is rumored to be priced similarly to its' 5Ds cousins. 

 

I love the 6D for its' low light performance, and full frame sensor.  I'm more the still life photographer than the action photograper, and so the 6D is perfect for me.  I don't ncessarily need the weather sealing because I'm more vulnerable to elements than the camera probably is.

Just to further confuse you, let me point out that while the APS-C body 80D might be an odd couple when paired with a 5D series camera body, I think the 7D Mk II just may be a good performance compliment to the 5D, but not in a backup role.  The 7D Mk II is the top of the APS-C body line.  It has better weather sealing than a 6D, and other great features that rival the 5D Mk III.  It also has the strategic advantage of high IQ cropping of the image on EF lenses, thereby giving you effectively more reach with telephoto lenses, without having to use an extender. 

 

Some online retailers are asking for a very small difference in price between the 7D and 6D.  Had these price differences been in front of me at the time, I probably would have jumped for the 7D.  The 7D Mk II is also offered in the Refurbished Store.  However, it is frequently "out of stock" at the outlet more than the 6D, which should tell you something about it.

Thank you very much Waddizzle

What I am planning to do is buying a cheap camera with its lenses which will fit the new 5D Mk IV. So I think when I buy 7D it will not work in this situation.
Please, correct me if I am wrong.

It would depend upon what type of camera kit you buy.  Most of the Canon kits I have seen come with the EF-S 18-135mm, which would not fit a 5D Mark III.  Right now, the best buy is for the camera body with  the Pixma Pro-100 printer, and no lens.  You could always pick up a 50mm or 35mm just to hit the ground running. 

 

Again, I just mentioned the 7D Mark II because it surpasses the 6D in more ways, than vice versa.  The cost difference between the two can be large, or negligible, if you shop around a bit.  I shop almost exclusively at my local photo shop, the Canon On-Line Store, and B&H Photo Video in NYC. 

 

BTW, I think every photo head out there needs to make a pilgrimmage to see the B&H superstore in Manhattan at least once in their lifetime.  It is truly a memorable, first time experience.  It is one part consumer store with display  cases.  It is one part warehouse and distribution center, complete with overhead conveyers constantly whizzing products overhead to the checkout counters, or delivery trucks.  It is an awesome site, and it is LOUD.

I hope to visit their store but I am far away.

 

Please gave me a last advice.

 

I do not need to buy a new camera since I am saving to buy the new 5D when it will be released. And I would like a camera with lenses which will fit he new 5D when I will buy it.

The lenses you buy will make the difference when it comes to compatibility with a 5D, not which camera body.  As long as you buy Canon "EF" Series lenses, then you have nothing to worry about.  It is Canon's "EF-S" series of lenses that would not properly mount onto a full size sensor body, like the 6D, 5D Series, or 1D Series of camera bodies.

 

Like I said, you can expect any 5D Mark IV to have a price tag comparable to its' 5Ds cousins, which is a significant jump over the list price for a 5D Mark III.
