The Canon 5DMkII is the most popular real estate camera used by readers of this blog (17.5%). The 5DMKIII and 6D have been out for quite a while and the 5DMKII was officially discontinued at the end of last year.
So there are 18% or more of us wondering when we get ready to upgrade which is the best upgrade path? I thought it would be interesting to take a general look at the main considerations and get the advice of the readers that have already made an upgrade.
I know, Nikon people will say I should include the D600 and D800. But we all tend to be trapped in a system by the glass we have. The images I've seen from the D800 are beautiful. If I didn't have all this Canon glass I'd be tempted to move back to Nikon. Perhaps a separate post on this subject later.
The video above goes into all the detail comparisons. Here's how I would summarize the research I've done on the differences between the 5DMKIII and the 6D:
Ultimately this is going to a price trade-off for each one of us. What is the experience of those readers that have already upgraded to one of these Canon bodies.
