Introduction

Canon's just officially launched the newest member of its APS-C mirrorless lineup, the EOS M6 Mark II. We were a little surprised to hear from Canon that the M6 II effectively replaces both the EOS M5 and EOS M6 models, so you're looking at the newest flagship for the EOS M system (and two of three M6 II US bundles include an external EVF, which helps to mitigate the most prominent difference between the two previous models anyhow).

And while it's true that from the outside this looks like a relatively minor update, Canon's been awfully busy on the inside, making the M6 II into a compelling and competitive option for those who don't want or need the bulk of a bigger full-frame system. Let's dig in and take a closer look.

The EOS M6 Mark II will begin shipping in late September 2019, priced at $849 US body-only, $1099 US with the 15-45mm kit lens and an electronic viewfinder, and $1349 with the 18-150mm kit lens and an electronic viewfinder. More on the electronic viewfinder in a bit.
