Said it before and will say it again: YMMV with Canon refurbs. Search the BBB complaint page to see that, outside of their 2 week return window, if you have a lemon, there is no way they will help you out.

Don't need this but that's a nice price. My 60D is still holding up well though...

Full frame for well under $1k. Regarding the BBB comment, if you have a lemon, they'll still repair it no?

I can't seem to decide if this would be a better camera or the Canon80d I bought for Thanksgiving? I still have time to return the 80D if this 6D is considered a better camera.. any suggestions?

They're different. The 6D is older but has a full frame sensor. The 80D is newer, crop sensor and more bells/whistles, much better auto focus. Far better video capability.

On a crop sensor, you need to multiple the focal length of the lens by 1.6x to get the effective use. What that means is that everything else being equal a lens on the 80D will appear "zoomed" vs a lens on the 6D due to the difference in sensor size (pretend you have rectangle and then cut a smaller rectangle on the inside and that's the image you keep)

They're both good. If you want the full frame look and are mostly going to be taking photographs in decent lighting and conditions get the 6D.

If you aren't sure if you need the Full Frame sensor of the 6D, then you probably don't need it. The 80D is a better all around camera and if you're starting out it's a better place to start IMO. If you get into the hobby and buy EF lenses as opposed to EF-S (which can only be used on crop sensor bodies) then you can always upgrade and use your lenses.

Did you get a lens with your 80D? A comparable lens for the 6D is going to cost nearly as much as the camera (24-70mm f4L, 24-105mm f4L, or 24-105 f3.5-5.6). Something else to consider.

I'd invest in lenses and a flash (even a cheap flash) ... you'll get far better results than spending on a more expensive body.

Aren't the full frame cameras much better in low light than a crop sensor?

Yes. While the newer crop can handle noise fairly well it's nowhere close to that of a full frame. I've had the Canon 20D (still do lol), 60D, 7D, 7DII, 5DMKIII, two 6D MKI's and not buying the 6D II any time soon.

I will say the refurbished Canon bodies from Canon including 6D I've had no problems with. Funny thing is they sent to me in Vixia camcorder box lol. You'd think they'd be a little more professional than that but the body was like new.

I'm sure this conversation about crop vs. full frame will get debated again but yes, you lose the reach with full frame but 6D is still one of the top contender for doing astrophotography with its amazing low light capability. Better than 5D MKIII, MKIV and some say 6D II (I have not personally tested). That's why I still hold onto my 6D. I've had the 5D MKIII, awesome rig but for astro, I still prefer the 6D. This is probably the only area Sony has not fixed the issue with the star eating phenomenon (otherwise I would've gone to Sony honestly).

Honestly this body should be $700 or so refurbished. But Canon knows how popular the 6D is even with the lack of AF points. Doing portraits with the 6D is little awkward if you're trying to frame the subject off center; even with doing headshots at times.​

Still, if someone is looking at strong low light monster body 6D is still the way to go. I don't shoot video (if I do it's stationary), I no longer shoot wedding or events that I'd want dual card slot, etc so 6D is more than enough. One day if I start shooting more videos I'm sure 80D or even a Sony mirrorless will be in for consideration.

Yes. It was $1100 prior to Black Friday and $1200-$1300 in previous months. Canon offers the same warranty coverage on their refurbished stock as they do on new stock. My experience with a 70D refurb was a body that appeared brand new and has not had any problems in the 2 1/2 years I've owned it. This 6D is the best price to get into a full frame Canon.
If your budget stretches further then look for the newer 6D Mark II bundle from Adorama or B&H. Between the mail in rebate and selling off the bundled items you can get final cost down to about $1100
