Take your ambient exposures for inside and out. Then expose for the windows whilst using fill flash so that the window frames are lit making it an easy cut and paste. Combine fill and ambient exposures to your taste. Mask in or out shadow and highlight areas within the interior that are getting lost.


With 70D or D600 you wouldn't have any cash for lens left, and without proper lens you can't make good use of them. Decide on lens first and then best body you can afford with spare cash. Flash with ability to be bounced off the ceiling (if ceilings are white-ish) would probably be the best way to improve photos in your situation. Learning to use flash ...
