BokehFanatic: Meanwhile, half of the potential buyers (≠internet non-buying complainers) don't know what dynamic range is, get the camera and are extremely happy with it.

Having said that, if it was not for the Canon "authority" and marketing, they would be at least as happy with a Nikon or Sony.

If they don't know being ripped off, how could they suffer?

Couscousdelight: For cheaper than a 6DII you can have a Pentax K-1, and it gives you :

36Mpxl
14Ev od dynamic
IBIS + pixel shift
35 cross Af points
A rugged body adapted for most situations.
And many more...

K1's AF is not slow. I use both Canon and Pentax FF...

D135ima: А ведь могла получится отличная камера. Все для кого 5D4 был слишком дорогим и излишне репортажным, ждали её.
Господи, это ведь прямо как мой 5d2, мои родные шумы при обработке.
Впервые сенсор с подобными характеристиками появился в 1DsIII, по правде говоря, она была заточена под низкие исо и ДД на исо 100 там даже выше. 10 лет ! Совершенно не имеет значения для кого по мнению кэнон эта камера, за 10 лет эту характеристику должно было "случайно зацепить". Ну не бывает такого в мире технологий. И нельзя выкатывать в 2017ом году ФФ, который по способности сохранять после обработки качественную картинку с низкими шумами, чистыми текстурами с честным разрешением уступает какому-то никоновскому кропу типа д5200, который наверное сейчас можно с молотка долларов за 250-300 взять. Ну блин нельзя ! Тем более это ФФ, медленный, любительский ФФ - единственное что от него требуется - это качество изображения

So true. Oh wait

ShaiKhulud: I hope they will fix SOMETHING in the future software updates. That lifted shadows ISO 100 picture is awful.

I'm sure that same firmware fix will magically grow a battery grip on it too!

beavertown: Dpreview: "6D Mark II dynamic range falls behind modern APS-C cameras"

Including Canon's own APS-C cameras? That is embarrassing.

yes, Canon's own APS-C.... that's tragic LOL

thx1138: So under $1K 77D camera gets a sensors that blows this away at low ISO. As a Canon users I'm simply gobsmacked and disgusted they would foist this garbage on us in 2017 when they all but assured us they have moved to on-chip ADC for all sensors. I'm so glad I needed the AF capabilities of the 5D4 and wasn't waiting expecting big things from 6DII. Add to that no 4K and no joystick despite 45 AF points, I'd buy a D500 or E-M1 II over this let alone it's FF competition. Wow A7III and D760 will kick the living stuffing out of this in most areas.

Good one Canon nice double shot gun blast to your own head.

77D? Even the T7i has more DR and the shadow areas lift up nicer than the 6D2.

What a true retro camera!

In reply to:

teiki arii: DR is so poor on the EOS 6D MKII that I am disappointed. I had two EOS 6D (MKI) for two years and found this camera the best price quality ratio ever made by Canon for DSLR. But the new version is not as good as I thought.
Anyway in the same range of price, I actually found the DSLR OVF Pentax K-1 the better choice still now... Isovariance is so good, DR is quite good with a 36Mp sensor (with an even better noise reduction process than Sony A7R/A7RII) and I enjoy that camera every second I use it.
Thank you M. Pentax!

I use Canon 5DSr and 6D extensively but also have a K-1. I agree with you. Have you tried shooting with PixelShift and the DFA 28-105? Color, resolution, sharpness and DR are improved even more! Indispensable for studio and architecture shoots

milkod2001: Should you buy6D2? If you don't make living from photography, don't need second card slot, don't do video and upgrading from body older than 6D than yes, go ahead and pay $2000 for camera barely matching 3 years old Nikon D750.

Wait what?... forget 6D2 get 5D4 instead :)

K1 would still beat the D750 in term of image quality. The AF cont is meh, I agree but for normal use it is very good. Plus K1 has PixelShift, AstroTracer, GPS, timed Bulb exp, interval, etc. And K1 does not have famous Nikon oil splatters, fail shutter etc....

In reply to:

AngularJS: So many DR fans here. Apparently it's not possible to take a decent picture nowadays without pushing 6 stops.

Pushing 6 stops? I'd be happy if I could push the shadows from the 6D just 2 stops without getting grains...

jay jay02: I don't understand the statements on the base iso dynamic range, has this new sensor been put through tests or benchmarks yet? I mean the article is even saying that the 80D is better at ISO 100, this surely must be incorrect. I can't imagine Canon not implementing the new on-chip ADC technology here. I think this article should be taken with a grain of salt

One of them is in Fred Miranda forum, long thread about 6D2.

In reply to:

ozturert: Is 6DMarkII's base ISO dynamic range THAT bad? When can we see comparisons?

Probably not 'that' bad, just about the same as the 5yo 6D.

I've seen a couple of tests and both suggested that Canon doesn't want to cannibalize 5D4 sales...

I'd get a K-1and 28-105 rather than a 6D2. Assuming I don't need fancy lenses or shoot video. K-1 offers much better IQ for still photos.

In reply to:

sts2: I don't understand why people get so hung up on the SD card slot. I too thought this was a major must-have when I got my first MBP (which still has one), then I realised: my primary cards are never SD. Always CF (and now XQD), so you need external readers anyway.
I suspect this is true for most pros. Wake me up when a laptop gets launched with a build-in CF card slot.

Because my other cameras use SD cards. It makes more sense for me to invest on good high speed and capacity SD cards that I can use with all my cameras and can be read with my Asus ultrabook that has a built in SD card reader.

Others are not you - many (if not majority) still use SD cards - myself included even when working with 5DSr.

utomo99: I hope 2018 we will see curved sensor used on many cameras

No point if lens manufacturers are still shipping decentered lenses.

In reply to:

Island Golfer: Personally, with all the folks out there who are buying into Sony's Alpha line, with its not so sharp lenses, I think that this TL2 + a 18-56mm lens will become the take-along travel camera of choice.

Just because it's a 'Leica' doesn't mean it's always sharper.

looks more like Samsung NX500 or something
