    Hi all,
    I currently have a Canon 6D, and want to upgrade to a 5D. The question is a mark 3 or do I go and spend the extra cash on a mark 4?? I have researched both online but can't decide! I want to also buy a wide angle lens for interior photography, if I go for the mark 3, I can afford a better lens, I'm really on the fence as to which camera to opt for. Any advice would be fantastic!
    Thank you.

    Can I ask why your thinking of upgrading the 6d? The Mark 3 is 9 months older than your 6d and each have a few features the other does not but otherwise are probably pretty on par. That said i know there were issues with some people and focus on the mark 3, but I imagine that anything out there used now I would hope don't have those issues.

    I guess my suggestion is to actually make the leap up to the mark 4 when you need to upgrade, but I would probably invest in more lenses before upgrading to the mark 4. I actually still shoot more on my trusty mark 2 over my mark 4, maybe because i feel like the quality is close and its more of the cheap "beater" camera now and i still wanna baby my mark 4 even 5 years later now.
