It certainly looks pretty.

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

@ Rishi I am surprised that the chip type cannot be provided by Canon. Sounds as if that is normal from the way you talk. Thanks for input on here.

That's a horrible decision by Canon! How could they go back to previous technology when they have tech that they have proven to increase performance? If this was just cost cutting it was a bad decision. Well, bad decision no matter what the resoning.

Liu Jianguo: I'm pretty sure my cellphone with Sony sensor has better dynamic range.

Not close, but I get your point.

aramgrg: This is as close to suicide as it gets, dear Canon

It's a new sensor they put money into a bad design. It's inexplicable. I think it is more of a foul up then a business strategy.

deep7: I read this and thought "what horror!". So I looked at the samples posted in the other story to see what the camera really puts out and the story is very different. It looks like really nice highlight and mid-tone transitions, which takes a lot of pressure off shadow recovery. This obsession with pushing shadows is only reporting half the story. It's really annoying but you don't have to be a genius to predict someone will jump on me for saying so anyway!

I'm not likely to ever buy another camera with a flapping mirror but, if I was, the 6D2 has a lot going for it.

He said flappy mirror not flappy LCD.

ChickenBalls: so uh who is going to buy this thing? I mean its not good for outdoor portraits, its definitely not good for landscape. Let's hope it's AF is reliable enough for fast moving subjects then MAYBE some would find a use for it as a cheap alternative to the 1DX...

7D2 would be better still though.

Photos look great. Colors are really nice! I would like to see more high ISO photos.

It looks like the coupler I just bought to connect two hoses together. Oh but the coupler I bought is real brass.

You describe the 6DII as an 'excellent camera' with 'excellent image quality', despite acknowledging that it has a dynamic range that is 3EV behind the 3 year old Nikon D750.

Elsewhere you draw attention to the lack of 4K and very limited video spec, but don't mention the absence of in-body IBIS which first appeared in a DSLR in 2008. Clearly the 6DII has never seen a envelope and would not know how to push it, but if it is still 'excellent' isn't this essentially a meaningless accolade?

I can't imagine a more disappointing camera. Canon users were bracing themselves for a basic proposition, with no 4K, let alone breakthrough features. But in the event the camera appears to not even offer an upgraded sensor, let alone one equal to the 5D4, which is behind rivals anyway.

Isn't this camera actually a slap in the face for its users? Who have waited quite a long time. Shouldn't DPreview be standing up for them rather than helping Canon sell something that should've been better?

Almost all review sites are set up t o sell gear though. What review sites do you think are the best?

thetoolman: No headphone jack in a $1500 DSLR? You have to be crazy to buy this over the Canon 80D for video. The only reason to buy the 6D II is that you want a cheaper full frame camera. I love the 80D!!!

That's exactly what it is meant to be, a cheaper FF camera.

CaMeRa QuEsT: I guess this is the best confirmation that DPreview can give about the 6DII's DR until you guys have a production unit to put trough your own DR tests. In any case, I can't understand Canon's reasoning for not giving the 6DII the new sensor tech that is already in the way cheaper Rebel T7i. Will Canon be doing the sensor on the SL2 and the upcoming M10 and T6 replacements with the same technology as the 6DII's? I think they will, as keeping the old fab on for 4 more years only to make 6DII sensors strikes me as a really bad business strategy, with all the personel, real state, energy and maintenance costs needed to keep the old fab churning.

Agreed. It's my only disappointment with the Mark II, so far at least.

What drama! A slap in the face? How could offering a product be a slap in the face? You have a choice to buy or not to buy. A slap in the face would be something like poor customer service AFTER the purchase. There are so many drama queens, haters and cyber bullying gear heads gone beyond wild on this website. Can't a product just be evaluated without all the histrionics?

Did he just call me a monkey?

I think that argument goes against the statement of "you take a photo from a public location". I would argue the person who planned the photo is the owner. If your building was in a hidden spot away from public viewing that may be different.

Camera sales will return to historic levels. Photographers wiil buy a few bodies, some families and enthusiasts or artsy types will buy one but the camera for every person boom is gone. Phone cameras will raise interest in photography for some but for others will diminish the need for a separate camera.
