I have been told (thanks) a few new bits about the EOS 6D Mark II.

According to our source, the EOS 6D Mark II will have a full tiltable display (like the EOS 80D), a new AF system with a “high number of AF points”, and will not sport 4K. Announcement is still suggested for Q1 2017.

Nothing really new here. Unfortunately the source wasn’t able to tell how many AF points the new AF system will have, which is information I am interest in. My guess is, the new AF system on the EOS 6D Mark II will be something comparable to the EOS 80D’s AF system.

Previously, these specs have been rumored:

  • Announcement first half of 2017 (CP+?)
  • 25MP sensor
  • Dual SD card slots
  • Might have 4K
  • Less weight and smaller size

I’m still somewhat puzzled with the 25MP (I’ve been told 24MP) and I am pretty sure it will not have 4K (sorry guys). No news about the announcement: it’s Q1 2017 as previously suggested.

Take it with a grain of salt. Given Canon’s secrecy and the fact it’s months before we will see the EOS 6D Mark II, it’s simply too early for EOS 6D Mark II specs we can take for granted. There will be many leaks and rumors in the next months. However, the reliable rumors about the EOS 6D Mark II will come just a few weeks before the announcement.

Stay tuned…

    new source, old source… had something right in the past?
    i really hope the 6D will have a sensor resolution closer to the 5D MK4.
    if not the 6D MK2 will crawl at the resolution bottom once sony and nikon released their next models.

      rumors are rumors. we have a very conservative approach to rumors. as I said, do not expect anything really reliable until a few weeks before the announcement.

      My guess is Canon will continue the “entry level” shape of the 6D2. btw, I get suggestions saying there will not be a 6D2. for the time being I do not think these rumors are true.

        no 6D MK2….?

        but canon needs an entry level fullframe camera… so what is the alternative?

        that rumor makes no sense.

    No low pass filter please.

    • canonwatch

      my hope too. would be great!

      • John Thome

        If it has one, I think I might ditch Canon.

        • canonwatch

          the 6d series is entry level so I guess it will have a low pass filter.

          • John Thome

            entry level? Doesn’t the 5D mark IV have a low pass filter as well?

          • canonwatch

            it has. that’s why I don’t think the 6D2 will come without

            I don’t see the problem with the OLPF – “sharpness” is a digital artifact anyways, and so many sharpening algorithms will deconvolute AA filter, it’s really a non issue, then you have the fact that at 25mp .. the pixels are pretty big, adding to the problem of moire.

  • Rick

    looks about right.

  • Cole Breiland

    This is everything I want. Hope it does nice 1080p footage.

    • canonwatch

      I guess 1080p will be on board. 30 or 60fps?

      • Cole Breiland

        More so sharp, without aliasing/moire issues, low noise at high ISO. 1080p @60 would be okay for me, 720p @120 would be a bonus
