dennis tennis: Fake news. The police are heroic first responders. They are never in the wrong. Whatever they do, they did with righteousness on their side. if that alleged "photographer" was innocent, the police would not have shot him. Clearly, the photographer was doing something bad and had to be shot. This is the only reasonable explanation. Liberal fascist anti-fa media are working hard to discredit the Police so that the white genocide will run its awful course to conclusion. The extinction of white American patriots has begun.

I'm sometimes not that sure, because there are people for who those are serious statements

Stigg: its clear that they should hire photographers for police positions. they would not only recognize other photographers, they might choose to carry cameras and shoot with them instead of shooting with guns.

Sometimes it's really hard to understand people's mindset.
I'm glad to live in a country where it's more likely to be hit by lightning when being out on the street and taking photos than being shot by either law enforcement or people who are "defending" their property...
And then there are people refusing to accept that police are also human and therefore subject to make mistakes.

This is not Wild West anymore!

Best net comment so far:

Free Translation:

"Problem starts with the 5D Mark IV

Of course you could always put it that way that the IQ of the 6D II is more than enough that 6.5fps are enough and that you don't need video on a photo camera.
If I were to become a racedriver and drive a car with 400 hp I would surely think that's pretty fast. But if I could get a car for less money with 600hp than that's simply faster then a 400hp car.

Canon is driving with pulled parking brake and made the 6D II partly worse on purpose than it could be.
"But Mark, they have to to keep distance to 5D IV."
Then they should have made 5D IV a lot better in the first place. This is where the problem begins. If it had been a technological milestone there would have been more room for better specs and innovation on 6D II."

Bass-80: Yesterday I had once again a situation where DR mattered a lot. Inside a church...

You can either take photos at +0EV, then you are at ISO 800+ and have the inside paintings but not the nice windows. So I went to -4EV with ISO 100 and know that with the 80D I am able to push the shadows and have both, nice wall/ceiling and the nice windows.
Bracketing with a tripod is not necessarily a good idea inside a church.

And if a 6D II is unable to outperform my 80D in those those simple situations then it's a no-invest for me.

@johnny420
Some comments here are like "DR is not so important, just use bracketing instead and you'll be fine"
As if they were defending Canon to bring out a 1000$ more expensive cam that does not produce better quality or better raw data than their 1.5 years older APS-C mid-budget product.

As I read somewhere else:
The problem starts with the 5D IV. It is a expensive, yet it does not close the gap to their competitors at same price level like A7RII or D810.
So from Canon POV this is one of the best they have but not on same level with Nikon or Sony.
Now they bring out their entry level FF and have to cripple it on purpose to protect their more expensive failure. If 5D IV were more competitive in its league, 6D II could be in its as well.

I mean even if Canon could easily close the gap to D750 with the 6D II they can't because 5D IV is limiting the technological potential that Canon can grant a FF entry product.

Too bad they teased customers with DR a low ISO with 80D/Rebel already

Apparently even for extrem lowlight she seems worse than her predecessor.
It's hard to believe some. R&D wasted 5 years to build that cam so bad (on purpose)

The more I dive in and the more I read the more I am disappointed and angry to have waited for that so long...

I was in a store today and offered the following
- 6D MK I - 1250€
- 6D MK II - 1790€
- 5D MK IV - 3200€
After long pro and con in my head I left he store with..... nothing :)

Except for better low-light, I would have to drop my newly beloved habits how to take pictures with either of the 6D's and 5D is simply to expensive and from my POV is the price not justified. Also it has no tilt screen that I also enjoy.

So - thanks Canon! Better luck next time...

Bass-80: I'm really disappointed.

Used to have a 50D with some L-lenses, renewed that last year to 80D, got me some new EF-L lenses like 100-400 II and was hoping/looking for jump to FF with this 6D II.

Got used to the ability to underexpose pics by 2-3 stops at ISO 100 with high contrast situations that my 80D allowed. That was a huge improvement of the 80D to the old 50D and I like that.

Now with these results, I can either take one of these 4 scenarios:
1) pay 2x the price of my 80D and have a step back from low ISO abilities in comparison to a APS-C
2) pay 3.5 the price of the 80D to gain FF bonus for lowlight and keep the DR abilities of my APS-C
3) stick with my 80D and reject the idea of Canon FF
4) sell my gear with loss and switch to Nikon

Thanks canon!
1&2 would justify this customer-unfriendly strategy you're pursuing.
I'm really feeling let down :-(

I guess I'll either wait for a good opportunity of a 6D Mark I or what Sony will bring as a7R III or a7 III.
I've found some fascination in Milky Way shots, for that a FF with high ISO performance would be a benefit. For fast autofocus I have my 80D

Get a 6D I?
But teasing with some of the benefits I know from the 80D like AF, screen and so on but refusing to built in DR from a camera half the price is stupid.
