On article Sony a9 banding issue: fact or fiction? (733 comments in total)

That's not banding. Bands are circular. That's pattern or line patterns.

King of Song: Canon has perfected a method of kicking itself in the teeth. In order to protect the sales of it's hierarchy, it dumbs down later releases so they don't step on the feet of existing more expensive models.

Canon should have released the 6D II prior to the 5D IV, and made the 5D IV much more advanced..... But of course they would never do that, because then the 5D IV would step on the feet of the existing flagship the inimitable 1DX II...

Bottom line..... I can't find a camera that is good enough for me to buy. I like great things, not good things... Sorry Canon

mosc: What's the first camera to get this 9-point AF system? Was it from the film era?

I think it's from the Elan slr.

David Chien: Seriously pointless!
4k video in a Panasonic G7 at the same price point ~$500
Or, simply visit Canon's Refurbished DSLR sales site for older models, esp. ones with Magic Lantern compatibility, and get the best of whatever Canon can make - very good photo quality + upgraded video quality and capabilities.
Eg. T5 refurb kit $250 SL1 $300.

dpr4bb: Limited AF-point coverage and worse shadow-noise performance, too?!?
Canon must have concluded that the 6D was too good compared to the 5DIII. They seemed to have done more "product differentiation" on the 6DII. Good job, Canon!

More af point coverage and this was not a camera review. Back under your bridge, troll

I was so poised to buy the 6D-II but Canon decides to deliver this pile. It seems Canon is more interested in protecting their non-sale of a 5D Mark-IV than producing something that actually appeals to me.

Making something worse than X does not make X better than it is. I didn't buy 5D-IV and I'm not going to buy it no matter how weak you make the 6D-II or the 6D-III or the 6D-IV... I ain't buyin it. If you want me to buy a camera make it better don't go out and make another worse camera in order to artificially prop up the 1st one.

You're the type of person where everything is always overpriced, eh? Always wanting a 5D4 for half price. Nikon. Did that with the d700 and learned its lesson and countered with the d600 and then d750

TTran510: Was hoping the 6DII was a 80D full frame but it is not even that. It is more like offspring of the old 6D and 80D which kept some old features of 6D and got some features from the 80D. The 80D still have the headphone jack, 100% Viewfinder, x-sync 250, & 1/8000 shutter speed over the 6DII.

The only reason it has a faster flash sync is due to the smaller mirror

(unknown member): Wow, 24 people want this camera compared to the 1000 of the Nikon D500, which sells at a lower price than this.

You realize this camera has existed for 12 hours.....while the d500 has been around what, a year?!

Joe Niepce: Looks like a good camera. Canon will sell a ton of these.
With the improved AF that works with ALL the Canon lenses this is a good option for any amateur (and even pros as a 2nd camera) wanting to shoot sports. Nikon is the only competition since Sony has no lenses that work as well (or at all for that matter),

No, touch screen, more DR, new autofocus, faster burst rate too. Big update

Ernest M Aquilio: For every "no 4k" rant, rampage, or rebuttal... the horse is dead. Leave it please. Focus on what Canon has done to improve this line and embrace the great options we do have for 4k

Innovation only takes over if the product is clearly better than what out now. Smartphones put small flip phones to nearly death but mirrorless has been slow to progress in effectiveness and needs a whole new lens mount line up to have any benefits of a smaller camera *ahem a9

HaroldC3: Honestly, I feel a little sick that I bought an overpriced M6 with the SL2 now coming out at a very attractive price. Especially if the SL2 has a silent shutter option as evident with the drive modes silent single and silent continuous.

I guess Canon was right to think they are competing with themselves because this camera definitely competes with the M5/M6.

You must think everything you buy then is over priced.

In reply to:

DavidNJ100: This isn't that inexpensive. Why would you buy it over a Nikon D750 or A7ii unless it was a matter of existing investment in lenses, flashes, and accessories?

It's d700-series competitor. Nobody goes as low as the d600.

Alex Zeee: I want to want it but I personally don't want to pay more for a full frame that can't match my 80D's 1/8000 shutter and 1/250 flash sync. I honestly don't believe that there is such a thing as a "budget/amateur" full frame camera and those things should be standard at this level. Maybe by the time I want to upgrade from my 80D the 6DIII will have these features or the 90D will have 4K60 (very wishful thinking, I know)

80D doesn't do 1/8000

Building looks to have been a power plant or other water related industrial building from the 1900s, same as the currency of their cameras.

SteveNunez: I think future cameras will eventually feature huge on-board memory and cards won't be needed.........just my .02 cents prediction for the years to come.
I don't think it would be too costly for manufacturers to simply include huge 1TB or so chips in the future.

No. How do you quickly get the pics out of your camera if is built in? Tedious transfer to a cell phone? Built in would require a cable and you're stuck with the memory size provided by the manufacturer instead of taking advantage of bigger capacities as time goes by.

Flash memory is so 2004. Some USB thumb drives are still used but those prices are cheap and it's only dslrs using SD cards. This is similar to Apple announcing the end to A: drives and CD drives in their computers.
