If you think that is good trade your 7d for a 6d and the results will be even better.

I started with a 6d and added an 80d for wildlife and macro. But after iso 1600 I feel the 80d is unacceptable. But that's probably because I was coming from the 6d.

I've actually been looking very hard today at FF. What do you think 6D vs 5mkiii vs 6Dii

Also what would you recommend as a path to selling a 7D?

I would love to keep my 24-105 on a FF during the trip.

I sell on Ebay... but this takes some experience so you can get the best price. The key is to study the listings of SOLD items, not current listings. And post a lot of pictures.

I feel the 6d is perfectly adequate for most situations. If you do a lot of video then I would consider the 6dii, but I dont think you will notice an image quality difference. It does have more focus points, if your into that.

For me the two cameras complement each other well. I will say that having magic lantern on the 6d is important, at least to me.

I'm looking for the best experience going on the African safari. Not too much into video and I know the 80D is well regarded for video anyway. Honestly looking to park my 24-105 on a FF and leave the 100-400 on the 80D for the majority of the time.  I agree that the 7D isn't really the best fit.
