    Okay, so here's the predicament.

    I'm looking to buy some camera equipment and i'm slowly loosing the will to live with decisions.

    My current equipment.
    Camera - Canon 6D Mk1
    Lenses - Canon 100mm Macro F2.8 L, Canon 24 - 105mm F4 IS L, Canon 50mm F1.8

    Do I:

    A - Expand on lens quality and choice - Canon 24-70 F2.8 L? Canon 70 - 200 F2.8 L? Canon 16 - 35mm F4

    B - Update camera body - Canon 6D mk2, Canon EOS R or similar?

    Primary uses, Landscape photography and portraiture. Secondary - Wildlife photography although this is rare and I coped okay with my 6D.

    Decisions.

    IMO 6D mk1 is still excellent for landscape and portrait ... for wildlife, an advanced focus system of mk2 surely will help you

    I don't know the 6d & 6d Mk2, but good glass in terms of quality and range of focal lengths is always money well spent.

    Back in the film days when I was in the trade, that was an easy call, the cameras above your build quality threshold were (more or less :lol:) a light tight box, and the lenses would make or break the image quality.
    Not so easy to say that these days...

    I have to admit i have been giving this a little more thought and I am currently edging towards new glass and other equipment to make my life a little easier.

    While having a higher-spec body would be nice, the glass would be more suitable and will keep it's value longer.
