Re: Beginner considering 7D, 6D and 5D Mark II - need advice

I'm surprised at the prices for the 5D2 and 6D kits, but just checked on Amazon, and they are correct.  Seems like a very good deal for the 6D.  If you count $800 towards the lens, then the 6D only costs $1600 for the body.

$1800 for the 5D2 body is excessively high, but now that the camera is discontinued, and they are only selling left over stock, maybe it has become a collectors item.  There were plenty of used low-shutter count 5D2s selling recently in the $1400 - $1500 range recently, though.

Given the price points you quoted, though, the 6D is a no-brainer.
