steelhead3: This is no problem for Canon shooters; they are used to using the bracket feature.

Agree.

The majority of them are so out of touch and have no idea what they've been missing for years to begin with.

tedwill48167: Two questions for the reviewer:

1. Can this be fixed with a software update?

2. Do you make Canon aware of your findings to give them an opportunity to address the issues?

Thanks!

1. Rishi from DPR has already answered the question -

https://www.dpreview.com/articles/3416153698/canon-eos-6d-mark-ii-dynamic-range?comment=1867052175

It is the result of off-chip ADCs that no FW/update can fix.

2. Nothing can be addressed as it's in production. You either take it or leave it.

MMACory: What if I were to have an inferior camera, but somehow take superior pictures with it?

If you can take superior pictures why hold yourself back with inferior camera?

Wouldn't you want to use the best camera you can afford to maximize your output?

retr01976: I used to shoot FF, Canon 5D Mark III and 6D bodies. The FF advantage is a complete myth. I started using a Fuji XT10 and couldn't believe how much more color depth and incredible dynamic range the Fuji crop sensor has. In fact every Fuji picture I took easily bested my Canon bodies save for the very highest ISOs which I don't bother with anyways. Fuji optics are fast and provide such lovely bokeh that the DOF advantage is basically non existent. I don't see myself returning to FF anytime soon, the differences between crop and FF are minimal these days and you need the most expensive heavy glass to enjoy it.

The reason why you think Fuji looks decent is because it uses a Sony sensor :)

FF advantage (sans Canon) is real.

You are shocked only because you've been stuck on Canonland for too long.

Go try a Sony FF sensor such as the one in D810 or A7RII, they will knock your socks off.

ottonis: This must be caused by something faulty that most likely could be corrected with a FW update.
There is no way a contemporary FF CMOS sensor will fall that far behind smaller sensors w/r to DR.
So, everyone take a seat and let's wait for an official statement by Canon.

The 5D2 DR is the result of off chip ADCs that no FW can fix.

dialstatic: Thanks for this, DPR!

I was waiting for exactly this. I've been shooting my 7D2 for a number of years now, but my photography has shifted to stuff for which greater DR would be nice. As I'm not heavily invested in EF-S lenses (only the Sigma 18-35) I considered the 6D2.

It would be step down in terms of build quality, so for me, it came down to the swivel screen and the DR. This article decides it: I won't be buying the 6D2. I'll happily continue to shoot the 7D2 as I save up for a 5D4.

So basically you fall for Canon's trap? We'll cripple the 6D2 as much as possible so people will buy our more expensive 5D4?

That's how you are repaying them? By supporting them more?

DeathArrow: After I'll sell my Canon gear I should get myself a nice D750 or the upcoming D760. 6D was good for what it was 5 years ago. 6DII on the other hand...

Wait and see what Sony A7III brings.

In reply to:

rolleiflex: Similar mistake canon made with lack of c-log on the early batches 5dmk4, which eventually needed a hardware fix. Now canon think they can sugarcoat their turd with a flippy screen and dualpixel AF. It does not work on me.

Im living in a fantasy land where I hope canon are embarrassed enough with headlines on key websites regarding the abysmal DR in this 6D2 sensor, that somehow they can offer a fix to give DR that is at least parity with the 80D. Im not even asking for better, just parity please.

Better move now than late. Canon has no future...

In reply to:

tkbslc: Well the RAW edits look great. SOOC JPEGs are sad.

Biggest problem is that you could build a FF Sony kit with Zeiss lenses for cheaper.

"Biggest problem is that you could build a FF Sony kit with Zeiss lenses for cheaper."

And you can buy a Casio with loads of feature way less than a Rolex.

So what's your point?

In reply to:

fedway: I hope its sooc jpeg software is not in its final version because the sample photo gallery is not attractive. Processed raws look pretty much like files from most 24mp apsc cameras of today. The latest apsc models like d7500 and pentax kp distinguish themselves with their high iso prowess but it remains to be seen whether this lecia imaging pipeline is in their league or a generation behind. The primes do seem to generate a nice raw file - leica quality. The zoom not so much. If I had this camera, I'd probably stick with the primes.

" Processed raws look pretty much like files from most 24mp apsc cameras of today."

And what exactly do you expect otherwise? That it beats a 24mp FF camera?

Ramchi: I recently bought Sony E Mount 35MM F1.8 OSS..How Samayang 35MM F2.8 is better

Sony E Mount 35MM F1.8 OSS is a crop only (APS-C) lens.

This is for Sony full frame E mount like the A7 series.

Gatoraied: @$2K it clearly was not intended for everyone. Olympus does make sub $500 cameras. Nikon & Canon make $6K cameras but they are not for everyone.

Canikon has the professional service and market share to afford that luxury.

Oly has none of that.

In reply to:

Mateus1: Big body with tiny sensor for the price higher than best APS-C cams on the market inluding X-T2, X-Pro2, A6500 and D500! Same with Oly lenses. M1mkII is even bigger then FF Sony A7II. Oly just started to kill m/43.

Oly won't be around for long.

They will bail out like how they kill their own 4/3.

Terry Breedlove: Well crud that price is crazy, Bye Bye Olympus looks like I am getting a Sony A7II for $300 less.

Great choice!

And if you love MF lens get a Techart pro and you can have AF.

Thomas Traub: At this price this is devinitly no option.
And if Olympus acts in this way they will lost me as customer
:-(

Sincere advice - Jump ship while you can.
Oly will jump themselves just like they did with 4/3.

In reply to:

ybizzle: $2500 CAD is way into full frame territory but you are getting a ton of features for the price. The questions is can Olympus convince those on the fence to buy one!

Not a chance except the biggest Oly fanboys

Kavu: Funny listening to all the e-mount folks b*tch about this release. A-mount users have been waiting for ages. E-mount users should actually take comfort that Sony just doesn't abandon a sector when a new one begins to thrive.

wait until an A9 gets dropped with 75mp and same 12fps and AF system.

Wild Light: I don't understand why people are complaining about the 5D 4. This is significant in my opinion, a game changer even.

@ Timbukto
"They shouldn't market this as focus microadjust, but as a soft-focus/bokeh adjustment"

Bokeh adjustment? Do you mean you can selectively choose/mask a specific area(s) within the image?

Because if you dial in the settings in an attempt to adjust bokeh wouldn't it also affect your focus on your subject as well?

@noms78

Why would anyone want to carry a bulky DSLR on an overseas photographic holiday?

Pickup an A7RII instead for less money. 5DSR might have the MP, but DR still significantly lags behind the Sony sensor.
