Should I upgrade or change brand entirely?


Let me start by saying I'm not a professional by any means but I do wish to make the leap while I've got a good paying job to support me.

Currently using a Canon 70d, never had issues, rock solid all the way, very happy with it.

Reading latest news regarding the future of photography and my preference in landscape photography, should I upgrade to full frame?

If so, I'm on the fence if I should stay with Canon, it's a reliable brand but I see other manufactures catching up and better full frames from Sony and Nikon. With Canon either I get the R or sell my car (not willing) to get a 5D.

The option to stay with my 70d is still on the table. I can manage a few more years with it but for that I want a better glass than this, EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. If I get a new lens I would be less likely to change brand in the near future and afraid to get stuck with the decision between a Canon R or a 5D.


  • I don't mind switching brands;
  • When it comes between a ML, DSLR, FF or M4/3. I can manage that weight difference;
  • I'm willing to sell or try to sell all my Canon equipment in order to have a bigger budget;
  • Don't have a big budget, can manage a €2k and if I sell my Canon gear I can reach €4k.

Thank you.

P.S.: Sorry for the english.
