Re: Investing in a 6D or 5D Mark III

I can't say enough good things about the 6d kit lens. Does it inspire me to write diatribes to FR about how it has transformed photography? No.  Do I like it a great deal?  Yes.

Every other lens may give you a bigger upside but also may expose you to some downside as you deal with the nuanced aspects of a special purpose lens. Sure, the engineer in me loves playing with the Sigma 1.4. That isn't necessarily better photography.

Landscapes at 24mm? Haven't been wanting.

Youth sports where I am reasonably close? Perfect.

Every needed a flash? Only for fill.

Portraits ranging from 85-105? My skill breaks down long before the lens does.

Blurred background? Actually lets me do more than my Sigma 50.
