J, GET THE BODY!! And maybe down the road get the lens as well!
The 6d is the worst sports camera ever made. I used a 5dll for sports for 5 years, they are almost the same and what a nightmare of a struggle to shoot sports!!!
For sports a good body is just WAY to import and to not have one.
Even though the Canon lens is better, a lens is pretty much a lens!
Thanks, SS! My first thought was I should upgrade the lens first, only because I do not want it to fail when I really need it. But then I started thinking more about it and since the lens does have a fairly long warranty, maybe the body would be better. Fortunately, when the focus motor up and quit it was right at the start of spring break, so I didn't miss any lacrosse games. I know the 6D is one of the worst action cameras but with that said I have been able to get some nice sharp pictures in really bad stadium lighting - and I keep thinking the low light ability has been outweighing the % of keepers. It may be too late for this football season depending on when the 5D4 actually comes out.
