I confess...I was wrong
28

I am a grumpy old grandpa who enjoyed smugly saying that I could do just as well with my old cameras and lenses. And I did take good pictures

When my beloved 5D died last November I was torn about getting another for $400 or putting over a $1000 in a 6D. Since Canon no longer repairs the 5D and a refurb 6d comes with a one year warranty it was a no brainer

The 6D is so much better at higher ISO. And the damping is so good there is almost no shutter/mirror slap.

I have only had the 6D a few days but I am convinced I will love it. I got good pictures with the 5D but had to have my speedlite always handy. I am already getting good candid portraits with almost every type of available light.

So even tho I will continue to penny pinch with older cameras and lenses, I will confess  that the newer cameras are nicer and better     and I now am officially taking the “my old cameras are just as good” smirk off my face
