/ Canon 5d mk2 or 6d
there is a good comparison chart linked in the ~5th post here..
and another one near the bottom of here
(Still getting crap photos as I only have a 550D!)
If you don't need the AF, extra card slot and weather sealing (and, arguably, build quality), but do want the wifi and gps, go for the 6D. It's also lighter which is good news for carrying the thing all day.
Good summary here:
I love my 5Diii for weddings and events.
I've just had a similar dilemma, and gone for the 6d. Going from a 20d it's a hell of an improvment. The better handling of noise at high ISOs is incredible, and the sensitivity of the central focus point is close to unbelievable -- it focus-locks on stars for goodness sake.
Either will be good though!
If you're considering these 2 don't even think about a 7D. IM(professional)O the 7D is whack.
We've recently got a 6D and impressions so far are very positive. The low-light performance is amazing. Previously (until it got nicked) had a 5D Mk I which was good at the time but suffered a lot from sensor dust. Since then have had a 7D which has almost led to us giving up taking it anywhere as the crop sensor is such a disappointment compared to full frame for anything except wildlife and distant work.
Not tried the 5D Mk2.
What a bloke! Thanks for sharing.
Just need to find a 24-105 f4 L lens now.
I have a 14-70mm EF lens on my 5d Mk11 and its great for outdoor wide angled shots with the full frame 5d you have. low weight, small. Its reasonable priced too for an EF quality lens.
I'd thoroughly recommend a second hand 16-35 instead. That extra mm at the short end is very noticeable.
