The 5D Mark II or III are superb cameras, but expensive. If you're a student than I think the 6D is a better bet. Save your money for future lenses is the best option. A cheaper camera body and decent set of lenses will be fine.

As a future student of digital photography, this is what I'll be doing. I have shot with Canon gear for a couple of years, so I'm pretty familiar with the form factors of the bodies and lenses, as well as the user interfaces. I've liked what I've read about the 6D: full-frame, Wi-Fi, GPS, cheaper than a Mark III, etc., so that's the body I'll be using for class, along with some used L glass.
