I just wanted to ask if anyone has tried this service on a 6D, or other camera involved in the promotion?

http://www.wexphotographic.com/partexchange/?event=canon-6d-upgrade-bonus

I am seriously considering getting rid of my second hand 5D in favour of this. Primarily, for me, it is about 135g (4.5 oz) lighter and has built-in wifi. The latter is important so that I may shoot to my Ipad Mini (Once I can get the Datacolor software to load on to the bloody thing!).

Any thought?

Just be aware the 6D might be having a few sensor problems at the moment and some are likely to need factory replacement.

Do you have a link?

I cannot find anything to suggest there is a common problem with a camera that has been out for two years.

See my post from Friday about Canon camera problems. There's been an announcement in the US about the problem. They may also affect cameras in other countries.

Hmmm... Different market, different branding and different batch of sensors.

Click on the T6 and T6i link on the page you linked to show some crop sensor cameras. The 6D is full frame and has a slightly smaller 20.2 sensor than the 24.2 T6 (Whatever that translates to in the UK..?).

It is the 750 and 760 D models that are affected

Seems an okay deal. The 6ds are £939 on digitalrev at the moment. Theyre 1150 at wex So just do the maths of the extra value theyre offering on your 5d. The reason why to buy a 6 d isnt because its lighter though, its because its an awesome camera and takes far better images in challenging conditions than the 5d mk1 does.... Assuming you mean the original 5d.

I've run two 6d hard for some while, and though its jot a fast focusing sports camera, think its brilliant generally. Of you're going from a mark one 5d, it will be like a new world in practical terms, but you may miss the AF speed of the mk2 slightly if that's what you have right now.

If you're upgrading from a 5D, you'll miss the little joystick at the back of the camera for AF point selection (I do anyway)
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.
