Like it’s slightly less expensive sibling, the T6i, the T6s includes Canon’s new 24-megapixel APS-C sensor that provides greatly improved image quality compared to the previous generation of cameras. The T6s is our recommendation for most serious photographer’s first cameras; the top LCD screen, secondary dial, and articulating screen should last most new photographers several years. In fact, the T6s/760D should last until you decide to upgrade to a full-frame camera. You should consider upgrading to a 70D for improved video focus tracking capabilities. The 70D also offers direct control over the focusing points, something that requires an extra button push on the T6i and T6s. If you’re serious about sports photography, the higher frame rate and bigger buffer of the 7D Mark II will make a huge difference. If that’s out of your budget, consider buying a used copy of the original 7D, which is much faster than the T6i or T6s, but can’t quite match the image quality.
