    Just a heads up, Massdrop has the 6D with lens for $1700 if a couple people join the drop, seems to be a good price.

    My Jones List is a Sony A6000 2 lens kit. If your rig is small enough to carry, you get more shots.

    But Art already has a little camera he likes for backpacking and carrying around. If I understand correctly, he's looking for a big one to get higher quality and better lenses for when he's not backpacking.

    Art - I tend to think you'd be happier with a 7D II or 80D with the long lens for the extra crop, but with that said, I sure do appreciate the outstanding quality of a full frame camera. I recently picked up a 5D IV and I still have my 6D. I use it more and more for people photography and the buffer speed, burst rate and focusing of my 6D was really annoying me. With that said, I still have it and I've been leaving it on my long-ish 70-200. If you want to borrow it and some Canon glass for a test drive, you are more than welcome.
