Canon 6D Mark II Hands-On: (Not) the Camera You Have Been Waiting For

Our friends and colleagues Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake from the Camera Store just got to play with the new Canon 6D MKII and, well – they are not really impressed.

Don’t get us wrong – they don’t think that it is a bad camera or anything but it isn’t exciting enough after so much waiting compared to the older generation and especially when compared to the large number of options on the market right now.

Niccolls for example feels that the new 26MP FF sensor – while being really nice in higher ISO has a very poor dynamic range (worse than an 80D to be honest), lacks AF across much of the frame (again same AF system as the crop sensor 80D), has only a single card slot with no headphone jack and as Drake notes it has no 4K and the video in 1080p is a bit on the soft side
