Thanks for your thoughts and replies. Maybe my 7D is good or score's needs adjusting. I've been well pleased with the 7D. Those photos I posted were all made without a flash. I was more or less responding to scorehound.

Phil, my thoughts for considering the 6D, and I'm not sure how good they are:

1. I assumed that the technology would have improved in the 3 1/2 years since the 7D was released.

2. I have a Sigma 12-22 or 24, Canon 17-40 and 24-105 that I never use and I don't really care to sell them. I use my 70-200, 28-300 & 100-400 with the 7D.

3. I know that I wouldn't spend the extra money for a 5DIII because I don't think I would "use" the extra benefits it has except I would like the better AF points. I use the 9 point center AF on the 7D.

Thanks again,
