Deciding on a new Canon
I currently have 1500 dollars to spend on a new camera and am currently shooting with a Canon T3 and various full frame lenses mostly. I tend to shoot mostly landscape and wildlife with the occasional portrait. I also tend to blow my photos that I like up to a 24x36 is most common. I am currently looking at a Canon 7D mark ii or possibly a Canon 6Dmark ii. I have watched hundreds of videos and they all seem to say the same thing, 6D is a beginner full frame with terrible focus system and the image quality is about equal between the two. The 7D is crop sensor with faster shutter, better weather sealing which is important here in the pacific northwest and the extreme environment im know to be in. I don't have the budget to jump to a 5D mark iv like I want at the moment. The 6D mark ii has a higher pixel rating of 26 compared to 20 that the 7D has but im not sure if that will be a difference when blowing the photos up to the sizes I need at times. Can anyone make a suggestion on what to possibly purchase in a Canon brand? Here is an example of some of my landscape that I did blow up to a 24x36 for the Living room.

Buying Used Lens from Adorama
Wanting to buy a used/reconditioned Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens for my Nikon D7200.

Other than on Ebay, I only find this lens used on Adorama. I have purchased used from KEH in the past and was very pleased in the purchase (I believe their used ratings are conservative and what I received was better than expected).

Adorama rating on this available lens (only one available) is “Excellent Minus” which is described as: “Shows signs of moderate wear and/or usage. Unit body may have surface scratches.”

The price is $419 as compared to $569 new.

Any UHH folk here who have purchased used lenses from Adorama and can share their “quality confidence” in their ratings? I am all for saving money, but also want to be happy. I know there is a decent return policy, so that helps if I am not pleased. Just not sure my trust is as high as it is with KEH (based only on never having dealt with them on used equipment).

Also, EBay pricing on this lens model (used) is higher than the Adorama price. Don’t know if that means anything.

This or that - your help please
Would appreciate your feedback/opinion on which of these two images you prefer - I plan to submit one for a local review/contest. Of course, if you think "neither", that is good information too.

Taken just north of Santa Clara, Utah near/on (not sure) the Shivwits Paiute Reservation.

Thanks in advance,

Selling Nikon D750 body and lenses(Nikon 300 F2.8 and 24-120 F4 VR)
I got a quote from B&H for my stuff and it seemed awfully low. Any suggestions for another site. Ebay already has a million D 750's on their page at around $1200. I want to upgrade to either the Nikon Z7 or Sony mirrorless A9 R3.

Tour Bus Photography
I know it is easier to take pictures off the bus than on it but sometimes the bus just will not stop. So, is there a formula or can someone offer some good advice for setting up for the sideways landscape shot, i.e. high iso + high shutter speed + low aperture or Auto or? Gracias!

Telephoto vs extender??
I am currently contemplating purchasing a Tamron/Sigma 150 - 600 telephoto lens to use along with my Sigma 28 - 300mm 3.5-6.3D lens (from film Nikon 6006 camera); a Nikon 55-300 4.5-6.3 GED kit lens and a Nikon 18 -140 3.5-5.6 GED kit lens on a Nikon D7100.
Discussions with the local Camera shop personnel are leading me to believe that a 2X or 4X extender when placed on the current lenses and used with the current camera would give me a much better range, more versatility, at no change in picture quality. They also mentioned that the cost would be significantly much cheaper.
I was always led to believe that a longer telephoto lens is better than using extenders and that the quality of picture is significantly better.
I don't know who or what to believe anymore and would like some help as this is my last camera but I would like more reach but with good pictures.
Can anyone be of assistance and help me out?
Thanks a bunch
