hello. First time here. I have a t2i,that i love using. I am ready to move up. The 5d is to expensive. I was thinking either the 6d or 7dmkII, but am not sure which way to go. I use the t2i for everything,nothing specific. Would welcome any input. thanks in advance, tony

What lenses do you have? The 6D will need EF mount lenses making any of your EF-S lenses still usable with the old camera but not the new one. A 7D2 can use the EF-S lenses which may be good but not the only deciding factor. FF bodies get a shallower DOF (Depth of Field) than crop bodies at any given f stop. If you have an interest in the very shallow DOF some like to use when shooting things like flowers or kids etc you need to factor that in.

my lenses are all efs, 10-18,18-55 and 55-250. Looks like i'll either be changing lenses or buying the 7mkII. could get expensive, but i'd rather do it once then have to change again at a later time. once again, thanks in advance for the input

Your timing might be just right on the upgrade. Canon (USA) has just lowered some prices that might help.

I am a big believer in keeping your photographic system balanced. I mean equal in quality levels.
With the lenses you currently have I would rule out a 7D or 7D Mk II. Although they will work on either one. The new T6i would be a good fit, IMHO, for you. And it will be a big step up for you.
If you do get unbalanced equipment it should be the other way around with top lenses instead of bodies.
Of course what you have rules out the 6D unless you are into buying new lenses. There is always the xxD line which includes the 60D and 70D right now. You might give them a look see.
My opinion and worth every cent.
