This is not a smart a** question. I have 6D, 7D1 and SL1 as a lightweight walkaround and I'm not sure I can justify upgrading to 7D2. I don't do sports and I do BIF maybe once every 2 years. I mostly use 6D now and SL1 as an all-day walkaround. FWIW I generally use single point focus on all bodies. I mostly shoot scenics and landscapes and some family photography.

Thanks for any input.


I have 7d2 + SL1, but I do more event, family, sports, wildlife.  The new stm lenses for the newest crop bodies have gotten really good and are at a bargain pricing.  Glass for the FF tends to be heavy and expensive with the promise of shallow dof, but sometimes that doesn't work out with just center point.  The 7d2 is quantum leap over the 7d1 in features.

If it were me, I'd prefer the 7d2 + 6d combo over the three that you have.
