I went to MPB

800d, 50mm f1.8 STM, 10-18, sigma 17-50 f2.8 OS

trade the above, for a like new 80d with 300 shutter actuations. MPB will pay me 36 pounds.

I’m really tempted. The 50mm I don’t like doing portraits with a DSLR, that’s fuji job now. The 10-18 is too short on long end, XF10-24 arriving Monday. 17-50; my XF18-55 can do this job, and the 17-50 has the worst lens flare I’ve ever seen, frustrating.


I think you have a good plan.  I'm sure the 80D will perform well for you.  I shot the 70D with Sigma 100-300 as a sports setup for years and it never let me down, particularly after I got accustomed to back button focusing.
