Amber (and other full frame users)
So, I'm starting to plan my camera upgrade. I was all set to go with a 7D (crop sensor), until I read about the new 6D (full frame). I was surprised, but I actually got hubby on board with the price. We're planning on putting about $50 away every month and combining it with the money I made with the sessions I did in IL before moving. What was left, we were going to use our tax return/work bonus.
Then I had a realization: I'd be left with only one lens. My 18-55mm and 55-250mm EF-S lenses won't work on the 6D. That leaves me with my 50mm 1.4. That lens stays on my camera 95% of the time, but I'm worried about that being my ONLY option. The price difference between the body only and with the lens is about $800. There's no way I'd be able to get that amount out of my XTi and 2 EF-S lenses. Especially since the mount for the external lens is damaged.
So, will I miss my other 2 lenses much on a full frame? Is it that big of a difference, that I wouldn't feel cramped at crowded places? There's no way I would have been able to use my 50mm at Disney last month, so I had my 18-55mm on the entire time. Or, would there be another suggestion for lenses than the 24-105mm lens that comes with the 6D on Amazon that would be less expensive to "replace" my wider lens? Or would I even need anything wider than the 50mm? Maybe I should just go with the 7D like I originally planned, and save some $$...
My head is spinning now... ;)
