Kainecons: i have a feeling this is gonna be a 5d4 killer...

Why does it have to kill something?

1st thing I'd like to see from Nikon is good QA. No more service requests, please...
F..king test your cameras before release!

Gimli son of Gloin: Is there a reason to get to consider this combo instead of a ZS100, RX100 or some other pocketable camera?

The mFT cameras became too big and the price tag too high to justify a purchase. On top of that the IQ different between the small sensors are almost indistinguishable and you get more flexibility of the zoom range.

Pricing a mFT lens the same league as a FF lens without their benefits is crazy talk.

If you can find a pocket camera that can give the same quality as GM5 and 15mm f1.7, you are welcome to recommend.
Needs and choices, that's what it is.

Try Panasonic GM1 or GM5 or GF8.

Traditional printers are dead! Long live mirrorless printers!

All "social" media does this. People love to show off, and many others think that what they see is real.

AD in KC: I'm a professional test chart photographer, so this is clearly not the camera for me.

Now forum and chart photographers will bomb you.

I missed that! What are the thinking?

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.

"OK" means "good enough for me to spend 2000USD". It isn't OK for you? Then don't buy it.
I brought EM1 II for 2000 and it is "OK" in terms of image quality. I don't need D810-like DR all the time, what I need is usability, speed, articulated touch screen, good lens set etc..
You need something else? Fine, go and buy something else.

Yes original 5D pictures look OK because I have that camera :)

Indik: I`m not a hater, but on paper this camera looks quite weak because it doesn`t excell in any area: it is not great for photo purists due to outdated sensor and AF; it`s weak in video due to lack of 4k, decent codecs etc.; it`s not lightweight nor cheap..

Articulated touch screen with DualPixel AF is good enough to buy for many. And how come AF is outdated? Canon's AF is well proven and this AF system has all-cross 49 points and you can use f8 lenses at 27 points. It is not as wide maybe, but not outdated.
I wish Canon brought all the bells and whistles too.

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...

JhvaElohimMeth, so 6D II is pointless but 6D kicks ass and K1's AF is horrible.
Well, 6DII is much better in every way than 6D (except from sensor, maybe). AF is worlds better, articulated touch screen and DualPixel AF is the best in industry, faster to shoot etc...
Pointless for you maybe, if you need only center AF point and don't want articulated touch screen with DP AF and more fps.
I bought an old 5D and am happy with it, but cannot say it kicks as.es compared to 6D II :)

Richard Murdey: In the straight ISO comparison (ISO6400 FF) the 6DmkII is competitive with the D750. It's only in the exposure push test that it fails to keep up.

That means the amplifier noise of the read electronics is the problem, right?

In a practical sense, it means the 6DmkII is fine if you expose correctly and use high ISO when you need to. It's not great if you often underexpose or enjoy pushing the dynamic lighting setting to "extra-high" in post.

On a meta level it's another data point supporting my pet theory that the 6DmkII was released more than a year after it was originally supposed to come out.

Deatharrow, that's why I said landscape

ozturert: Looking at dominance of Canon, it's striking to see how these numbers and charts are irrelevant in real world.
Don't worry be happy :)

"and he got it because he saw the guy shooting the superbowl using a canon."
And why is that guy using Canon in Superbowl? Just because of marketing?

In reply to:

the decent exposure: and in the end, canon will sell of bunch of 6dMK2s, that is the power of marketing.

So you say all who use Canon are brainwashed by marketing. Really?

K1's AF is slower than Canon's, and it is not 100% reliable as well. In fact, even AF in live view was not very dependable with lenses such as 70mm f2.4 Limited and AF 50mm f1.8, so I sold it.
If AF was at least as good as 5D MarkIII, then K1 is a huge value because I think its sensor is better than D810, screen is articulated, it has IS in body, pixel shift resolution rocks etc..

I always take at least 2 photos to combine later if contrast it too much in a landscape. Even my D810 got noisy in many cases.
