Sold my 5DMkII and ordered the 6D, was it the right decision? What do you mean?

You are right, with the D7100 also the lenses are smaller.

I have the 24-105L too, and many years ago I used it extensively on my 400D. May be the difference between 5D2 and 6D will be not that huge regarding the weight, especially if you consider also the lenses. I don't plan to use f2.8 zooms for traveling, either I shoot with f4 zoom or with fixed focal length lenses.

In regards to the weight... the 6d weighs almost exactly the same as the d7100. Does that camera work for you to carry around all day? The 6d is good for me, but the weight seems to be more about lenses than it is about the body in my usage. I like that the 6d is lighter than the 5d mkIII, but the 24-105 that I have on it is what makes it heavy, not really the body itself (and most consider that lens pretty light and small actually...)
