    You should sell your EFs lenses then. So you can have a wider range of lenses and not stuck on the 50mm.

    Some of the Seniors also go into mirrorless, because we become old man already.

    Now you could have caused TS to regret spending Big $$$ for his 6D and to be followed up with replacements for his EF-S lenses.

    Eh ... I don't know how to answer this cause even now I do meet people who look at my MFT equipment with smirks haha.

    End of the day it's just what works for oneself and I believe there r people out there who somehow feels more assured with a larger 'gun' and will always be ready to lecture on how the size of sensor is directly correlated to how nice the the photos will be

    While I upgrade to a 70D, I'm trying to change my range of lenses for use on FF next time. But if I get a 70D, I can use for a few years first while saving up for the new range of lesnes and FF. Or should I just hold out now and save for FF? But then, I won't have any lenses except a 50mm f1.8.

    Please help!
    Just like to know, what are the things you are mostly shooting now? Anything new genre you like to try in the future?

    bigger is not always better

    some people may have the biggest equipment, but cannot perform up to standard

    from how I see it..
    Food - Telephoto range of 100-200mm (not forgetting about flashes and softboxes/reflectors)
    Landscapes - Usually Wide, but sometimes telephoto (+ GND, ND filters etc)
    portraits - mixture of all focal length from wide angle to telephoto depending on what kind of portraits you want, headshot, head and shoulder, 1/2 body, fullbody, environmental portraits etc (not forgetting about flashes and softboxes/reflectors too)

    So setup, Canon f2.8 trinity. Won't go wrong with the below setup Tested and proven in the field by many working professional. Covering range from 16mm to 200mm
    EF 16-35 f2.8 (http://www.the-digital-picture.com/R...ns-Review.aspx)
    EF 24-70 f2.8L II (http://www.the-digital-picture.com/R...ns-Review.aspx)
    EF 70-200 f2.8L II (http://www.the-digital-picture.com/R...ns-Review.aspx)


    Personally, I feel that you may be lacking a fair bit of understanding of your own shooting style. At this moment, My suggestion is that you just get the EF 24-105 (for affordable 3rd party options, Tamron 28-75). If of course budget is not an issue, feel free to get any lens you want and sell it if you find it not useful.
