GarysInSoCal: Actually Canon fanboys have alot to look forward to. As retarded and assinine as this camera is, the 6DMark3 should be leaps and bounds above this ridiculous offering, placing it somewhere close to where it should have been 3 years earlier... :D

"the 6DMark3 should be leaps and bounds above this ridiculous offering"
- In what direction? :)) Towards more ridiculousness?

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.

Yes, 6D2 is underperforming. I never said that it wasn't. Read my freaking posts. 6D2 and scamTrans both are bad. Stop trying to make me choose from either sort of crap. Your demagoguery is like:
- "Hello, I'm stevo23. I like eating rats in my favorite restaurant. Look! Your favorite restaurant started serving rats too. But I think that rats in my favorite restaurant are better. Want to try some?"
- No, that's disgusting.
stevo23 - "What? Why? You think your restaurant does better rat meals?"
- They are both disgusting. You shouldn't eat that.
stevo23 - "Don't change the subject. Why do you think those rats in your favorite place are better than in mine? I don't think so. Prove it to me!"
- You are nuts!
stevo23 - "Please stay on track. We are not finished yet. What's wrong with my rat salad? It's yummy!"
- They've caught those rats on a dump. Everyone knows that. It's not safe.
stevo23 - "No. The chef told me they're fine."
- Your chef is a liar.
stevo23 - "No, you are a liar!"

Honestly, there is no APS-C camera good enough for me. All that BS about - "large sensor is for low light only" - is nonsense. If you can't appreciate the quality detail from a larger sensor in decent lighting conditions at low ISOs, then I feel sorry for you. Photography is all about the light. Basically better light = better image quality. Not seeing those random specs of noise pre-filtered by your Fuji has no value for me. I just want my camera to gather more information accurately. While the scamTrans spoils it badly. I get it, you don't care about anything, you just want to be in this Fuji hipster gang. Fine, just stop deceiving yourself. They've been feeding you this BS about Fuji xTrans crop superiority and then guess what ... they make the GFX without the BS. There's your proof.
6D2 looks like a failure to me, but the scamTrans is even worse. Is that too difficult to understand?

@stevo23
The truth is, when you don't need to push images back from darkness, 6D2 is running circles around any scamTrans. And when I need to push it, the X-T2 is no better than my old 6D.

It did. How does that make your Fuji the best camera in the world? Because it's not, specially because of the scamTrans. That's why Sony takes the lead.

ecka84: Honestly, 6D Mark II doesn't seem like a FF version of the 80D. It's more like FF version of the 1300D, a camera made of leftover parts:
- Poor DR sensor (if it's really worse than 80D's);
- AF system from a Rebel (obviously it wasn't designed for FF);
- Single SD card slot (jeez ... at least make it a CF next time);
- NO 4K! NO peaking! NO headphones! (clearly Canon is showing us a finger).
Why does it cost two grand? I'm very disappointed.

Get lost you imbecile.
Nobody wanted that oil spiting Nikon failure. (Google for D600 oil spots)
And it has a similar stupid AF system from APS-C cameras.

Great. My 5D mark III will stay.

Whatever works best for you, my friend. I'm not saying that Adobe is the best there is. I just find that one single color profile to be perfect for my taste and very accurate in color reproduction. I'm sure that Capture One has a similar solution and you can create one if it doesn't.
The thing is that I've met people, who didn't realize that a proper camera calibration profile can make a huge difference, so they only used the default Adobe profile and tried to fix it with all kinds of presets. Which, potentially, can work fine too, but it will require more effort in fighting the WB, HSL balancing and local adjustments.

The proof is in the pictures, which you are refusing to look at (afraid?).

samhain: Not good.
Makes no sense to me why Canon wouldn't use the 5Dmk4 sensor. It wouldn't cannibalize the 5Dmk4 sales that much, The price difference isn't far enough apart.
Professionals/aspiring pros would still pay the extra $ for 5dmk4 for the pro body, dual card slots, advanced AF array,etc. Video guys would get it for the 4K.
And the upgrade path is much more linear from 6D--> 5Dmk4.

Me thinks Canon shot themselves in the foot crippling this camera too much.

Actually, a proper 4K implementation could be the major reason for buying this 6D2 "marvel", with touchy-flippy, DPAF and stuff. Unfortunately ...
So, there's the last chance for Canon - somehow make 6D2 to shoot 4K, properly. :)

Great. My 5D mark III will stay.

I did plenty of such experiments. Trust me :). And JPGs are just a no-go for me. Adobe's Canon Camera Standard Profile is so much better and I rarely touch any HSL sliders, only WB and tint.
"I have been trying Adobe's extra profiles for many years too, BTW, and they have only gotten worse with recent cameras." - that could be your monitor's fault as well, potentially. What display you are using? My good old Samsung gone crazy recently, everything has got yellow tint on it now :). Perhaps because I wasn't using it for more than a year after I've got a new screen.
"why on earth would I want to make a raw file look like an in-camera JPG file?" - Yeah, that's my thought exactly. But, to each his own (color). These Fuji "color fascists" are such a PITA. Infantile ignorance aside, it is perfectly possible to shoot whatever color you want on whatever camera you want. You just have to learn your style first and the software.

sh10453: Did Canon by accident use the leftover thousands of the 30D sensors?
Or maybe they were environmentally friendly and did not want to dump these leftover sensors in a landfill. So I give them credit for that.
I waited 5 years for this???

I'm happy using my Canon FD, L-lenses on a my mirror-less Sony, although I have been, and still am, a Canon user for a very long time.

Not just for the dynamic range, but I'm quite disappointed by the 6D-II.
They should contain the damage, and freshen it up quickly using the 5D-IV sensor, with whatever modification is necessary.
This is really tarnishing their reputation.
Personally, I was 100% ready to get the 6D as soon as it gets out, but was completely turned off by its lackluster reports.

"environmentally friendly" - It's just silicon. Environment is full of it since before we came along :)
6DsR could be a good idea though.

"Video guys would get 5D4 for the 4K" - I doubt that.
The rest is true.

Stop making stuff up. I'm saying that in-camera noise reduction (which is applied regardless if it's needed or not) is uglier than a proper one or even a lack of.
There are worse things than 6D2 sensor and Fuji xTrans is one of them.

ozturert: Has anyone actually looked at the sample gallery :) I think it looks OK. Not class leading when you recover shadows by 3EV but not horrible as well.

Are there any NOT OK picture galleries shot with a $2000 DSLR? There are better cameras. That's all.
Most people are OK with smartphones. Which only means that their level of tolerance is too high for the tools we are talking about. Pretty much any DSLR or mirrorless camera is an overkill for them.

Just look at the freaking images man. The X-T2 just looks uglier than the a6500. You just don't have the balls to admit it.

@matthew saville
Nice picture and color preference :). However, I don't agree with the Adobe "problem". I find the Camera Standard Profile in Lightroom to be very pleasing in terms of color and contrast calibration. What profiles are you using? If you didn't bother to try any, then yes, Adobe Standard Profile is kind of ugly :).
Some Fuji color profiles work just fine for Canon cameras too. I mean profiles made for Canon cameras for Fuji color emulation. Same thing for Sony and Pentax and whatever. It's just color calibration. There is no magic. There's only people being lazy and ignorant.

Except that I paid $1500 for my 6D (new), while its original price was $2099 at release. 6D has plenty of compromises (like AF system and single SD slot), but 5 years ago it was a very decent camera and there was not much competition (well, I bought it like 6 month after the release, because the price dropped, so it's 4.5 years really). It has better sensor than the 5D3 and then it was reborn inside the 1DxII. Kapeesh?
Still thinking that you are a genius? :)) So disrespectful of you ... Stop the BS. All statement stand. I don't care what you don't care about. Just tell me what you do care about and then (maybe) we'll talk.
Have a nice life.
