This is a request for advice (and yes, I know everyone has different opinions, and I have to find my own way in the end, but some input helps...) There are multiple factors and components to my question. First off, I'm a relative newbie. Started photography about a year ago, with a Canon T3i, which I enjoy just fine. I have a small collection of entry-level and decent lenses (50/1.4 prime, 18-55 kit lens, Sigma 18-200 telephoto). I take pictures of landscapes, sunsets, random stuff in my backyard (birds, flowers, etc.) for the most part. I've been considering an "upgrade" to a FF (more specifically the 6D, which I have read great things about). I know some (but not all) of my lenses will work just fine on the 6D, and am willing to sell and replace the ones who don't. I am wondering: 1- Is there really a huge benefit for a beginner, in going FF? Will this open up a new world of possibilities for me? 2- Is FF going to make things more complex for me? Is it a step in the right direction? Or not really? Is it more a case of "each frame size has its uses". 3- What would I lose by going FF? What would I gain? I realize it's an open ended question...feel free to expound. I enjoy reading other people's opinions.
