Moving to FF- wait for 6D or jump on the discounted 5DIII?
Oct 25, 2012

Good evening- looking for your thoughts on upgrading my 60D. I have a 6D on order but am tempted by the semi-regular $2799 price point for the 5DIII appearing on eBay (new in the box, authorized retailer)  Current lenses include 50 1.8, 24-105 f4 and the 70-200 f2.8 (non-IS). favorite subjects are my family; kids (ages 9, 11 and 14- candids, school events and indoor sports; especially volleyball and ice skating.) along with general travel pics. I almost always use center point focus and recompose. Excited about the form factor of the 6D as it is a natural move from the 60D but now that the price difference between the two bodies is $600, not $1300, I'm considering a move to the 5DIII instead. I don't want to be penny-wise and pound foolish if there are significant benefits to the 5D - not only for now, but as I mature and improve as a photographer.  That said, if I can save $600 on the body, it nearly pays for the 17-40 that's next on my wish list-

thanks in advance for your thoughts
