I have a 10 year old Canon 30d that I am in desperate need of upgrading. It's been around the world and takes pictures like it. It was also the last sensor that Canon made without a sensor cleaner (fucking dust spots).

Now that I have children (and mortgage, etc, etc) I can't just go spend as much as I want on such things.

It looks like I will pick up a Canon 70d after the 80d comes out on Friday.

Question: does anyone have a Tamron 16-300mm lens? I'm torn at the moment between buying another Canon 70-300mm lens (dropped!) and trying to get my Canon 17-85mm lens repaired (it has a hair in it) or spending a tad bit less for the Tamron and eliminating the lens changes. Changing lenses is just a pain when travelling with two children. I would love to buy an L glass or a 2.8 lens but it's not in my budget at the moment.

Or should I just suck it up and buy a full frame camera?
Even if you are 1 in a million, there are still 7,000 people just like you...

I can't speak much to your needs, but I can say the Canon 6D is great and affordable full-frame camera. It lacks the crazy fast autofocus and shooting speed needed for shooting sports that you would get with a 5D, but for studio work, landscapes, architecture and street photography, it's fantastic.

On that note, another consideration might be to look for an older 5D (MkI or MkII) with a low actuation count or refurbished shutter.
