Excited - just ordered Canon 6D
Jun 28, 2013

Well, I finally did it - after comparing the 5D Mark III and the 6D for some time, and even looked at going mirrorless as an option.  I ordered the 6D today and can't wait to get my hands on it.

I started with a Canon 40D and upgraded to a 7D when it was first released.  Loved the handling and ergonomics but was never thrilled with the low-light performance.  I was a bit worried about downgrading on the AF but the many threads here convinced me otherwise.

I have a few good lenses - 17-40mm f/4 L, 28-70mm f/2.8 L, and the 70-200mm f/4 IS, as well as a 50mm f/1.4.  I think the 6D will allow me to unleash the full potential of these lenses.

Now I need to sell my 7D and the 17-55mm f/2.8 EF-S lens (it's my only EF-S lens).

Cheers!
