Canon EOS 6D with EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens

ANNOUNCED at Photokina 2012 and released a couple of months later, the EOS 6D was marketed as a smaller and more affordable alternative to the hugely popular EOS 5D Mark III. It was released with a body-only price of £1,680 and it's now possible to source a second-hand 6D in ‘excellent' condition with a shutter count under 10k. Throw in a ‘like new' second-hand EF 50mm f/1.8 II prime for a further £79, and a full-frame DSLR starter kit could be yours for under £700 – for those looking to buy brand new in today's DSLR market that's barely enough to secure a mid-range APS-C DSLR.
