Without question, your efforts in the last two years online here have proven successful. Good job.
I guess there may be hope for me yet! lol
My recent earnings have put me close enough so that i just might be able to replace my G3 with the G6 when it finally hits the store shelves. So i might be joining the 'new camera' club soon as well.
Although full frame (and lenses, flash and such) are out of reach for me currently, I hear you with the noise thing. M4/3 is great for almost everything I do with it but there are some times when I'd like to have just a little bit more ISO or a touch more shutter speed without noise. I think a full frame would be a great complimentary tool with my m4/3 (or the other way around).....drool.
Congrats on the new camera and enjoy.
Thanks George. I debated upgrading to the next G (I had gone from G2 to G3 previously) before going to the full frame. The smaller cameras certainly are easier to carry and I love the touch focus on the Panys. No touch screen on the Canon.
Yah, kinda similar idea about path here. I started with the Panny FZ100. Since i spent a lot of money on a Oly flash for it, when i upgraded i went with the G3 (for other reasons also). then bought a bunch of stuff used. Got a 45-200. Then replaced 14-42 with 14-45. Then got a 50, 1.4. Then bought a Oly 9-18...and other accessories like tripods, legacy flashes, some legacy lenses and so on. I guess you'd say I'm invested in m4/3 right now. Doesn't make any sense for me to sell it all and buy a used full frame with one lens and a flash...it would take me years to build and equivalent range of lenses for the full frame...unless I make a crapload of money here over time. Then i likely would. Excited about the G6 though, eye sensor, focus peaking, faster focus, look thru viewfinder and choose focus point on lcd...cool. Those items alone worth upgrading to me, even if the iq is the same or only slightly better. Studio strobes and such for later. i'm still poking along with flashes and triggers for now. anyway, nuff said about that. go get 'em.
Nice pictures! Congratulations on your purchase!
Well, the noise - yes, it`s a problem. BUT! A professional photographer told me that OM or 4/3 Zuiko Lens + Full Frame = Medium format quality. Really, Oly picture is very beautiful:))
In any case, now you can compare!
Congratulations. It looks like a brilliant camera. Your great portfolio has sold over 1500 images and helped towards this new purchase, which you deserve. Hope you enjoy learning the new camera and look forward to seeing your new photos. All the best.

I'll be hanging on to it - boy, does the Pany G3 feel tiny after holding the 6D for a few days. I have a 100 - 300mm lens on the G3 which is good for birds. I don't see myself investing in a $14,000 equivalent for the 6D.
