With the 6D Mark II, Canon has produced a decent all-rounder, but it’s missing too many things to truly excite in what is now a crowded market.
In 2012, it was quite something to have a full-frame camera in a small and light body, at a ‘cheap’ price. Fast forward five years, and we have more choice than ever – so much so, that the technology on board the 6D Mark II is no longer revolutionary.
What’s more, with the introduction of Sony’s much-lauded A7 and A9 cameras, ‘small’ has been redefined. If you’re an existing Canon user who wants to make the move to full-frame, it makes sense to stick with what you know, but bear in mind that if you have any APS-C only lenses, you’ll need to ditch those when you upgrade.
If you’re an existing 6D owner, you’d probably be better advised to save your pennies a little longer and go for the more advanced 5D Mark IV, or perhaps the older 5D Mark III if you can find one.
All in all, the 6D Mark II is a solid and dependable camera, which is capable of producing very nice images. But the fact that it doesn’t record 4K video, only has a single card slot, and has a 98% viewfinder are all quite big let-downs at this price point.
