I'm thinking CL = Craig's List.

Re: Canon 6D OR Rebel T4i?

Nope, just the one version.  Not sure if Canon will ever release a ver II or not.  They do have 3 flavors of the 24-70: 

 

- 24-70 f/2.8 (discontinued)

- 24-70 f/2.8 II

- 24-70 f/4 IS

One thing I love about this forum is that people don't pressure you to go out and buy the latest gears.

Re: Canon 6D OR Rebel T4i?

I certainly wouldn't buy a new camera weeks before a trip and expect to get satisfactory use out of it. My experience is that you need to shoot a lot with a new camera, studying the manuals, learning the menus, etc. before you start to feel proficient enough so that you can quickly adapt your settings to whatever scene is in front of you.

 

Since you are still on the fence about the crop frame vs. full frame decision, it seems that the best short-term decision might be to upgrade your lens(es). The EF-S 17-55mm is a terrific lens; I've used it as my walk-around lens on the 7D for several years and have produced some very professional results. I love the constant f2.8. As you probably know, the EF-S lens will not work with a full frame camera. If you are still considering a move-up to an FF camera, you probably won't want to buy any more EF-S lenses. Stick to EF lenses and L lenses if you have more to spend.

 

Also consider renting a camera and/or lens before buying. I rent through borrowlenses.com, and it has allowed me to try out expensive lenses and decide if I really want to spend the money to own one.

 

I bought a 5D Mark III last year with 24-105mm L lens, and it is now my favorite everyday lens. I primarily use the 7D with a telephoto lens when I need longer reach. My original Digital Rebel was donated to my daughter, and she is now cutting her teeth on her first DSLR.  .

Re: Canon 6D OR Rebel T4i?

Little bit out of topic.
Post a question in other thread but no answer so far.

I'm heading to London this fall and need best set.

1. t2i + Sigma 17-50 f2.8 OS
2. t2i + canon 24-105 + 40mm f2.8 pancake
3. 6D + canon 24-105 + 40mm f2.8 pancake

I still can't make my decision.

Need help here.
Thanks.

Re: Canon 6D OR Rebel T4i?

If the additional price for the 6D vs. the T4i is not a barrier for you, go with the 6D. The full frame sensor, excellent high ISO performance, GPS and wifi features are all very compelling. The 6D, Coupled with the very versatile 24-105mm L lens, will cover the majority of photo ops you will encounter while travelling. I don't know much about the new 40mm f2.8 lens, but if you want an inexpensive lens good for low light situations, how about the 50mm f1.4? That's the other lens in my travel kit (along with the 24-105mm L lens and a 70-300mm telephoto.)

Charlie 94:
I like your 3rd option the best, 6D with 24-105. Not sure about the 40 2.8 though, if you need a fast low light prime I agree with JillC, get the 50 f/1.4 which is 3 stops faster than the 24-105 and 2 stops faster than the 40mm. Between the IS on the 24-105 and very good high ISO performance on the 6D, you should be just fine on your trip without either prime. If you don't have a flash, the 430EX II is great.
