Canon EOS 6D Mark II talk but nothing new

canon EOS 6D mark iicanon rumors

A list of  Canon EOS 6D Mark II specifications is making its rounds on the net.

It’s basically another rehash of our Canon EOS 6D Mark II rumors with some common sense-driven additions. So sorry to annoy you with stuff you already know, unfortunatley I have to post this too. Be aware that there is a possibility we will never see an EOS 6D Mark II but a fullframe mirrorless camera instead.

What to expect from the Canon EOS 6D Mark II?

The most traded specification list is below, and was leaked to us over more than a year.

  • 28MP sensor
  • 45 AF points (all cross-type)
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • DIGIC 7
  • Wi-Fi and NFC
  • GPS
  • Articulated touchscreen
  • 6 fps
  • HDR Movie & Time Lapse Movie
  • 4K video
  • Electronic IBIS
  • Dual SD card slots
  • 100% coverage optical viewfinder with some new features

Would you be happy if the EOS 6D Mark II brings this features?

Another big question obviously concerns the announcement date. So far, end of Spring or Summer 2017 are the candidates. However, I still am not 100% sure there will be a Canon EOS 6D Mark II in the shape of a DSLR (more here). 

Stay tuned.

    EIS means nothing, especially if the 4K has a 2x crop. If I want a M43 size 4K file I will get a Panasonic and get manageable files and format. All the 6D II needs is environmental sealing and to be what the 6D promised – a proper, compact FF camera at a lower price.

      I doubt it will have 4K

    • Steffan S. Thygesen

      Agree about that

    A Mkll is far more likely from Canon than a FF MILC. Canon, the company you can depend on to make small, safe changes which insure a great overall experience. Not the company that focuses on a single feature that breaks the mold (and has issues in other areas i.e Sony) 6D2 will most likely be the continuation of a steady evolution in FF offering a flippy and a few more AF points. Stills mostly with no 4k(most of you can’t even use/process it) This would be a great landscape/low light/ground level macro body. You want sports and wildlife? There are other higher fps bodies for that, stop wanting Canon to put everything in everything and please stop using the word ‘cripple’, it’s showing your ignorance.

    This has very appealing specs but I’m waiting for a FF mirrorless EF mount Canon. I really want an EVF after shooting Olympus and Sony cameras for a few years along side of Canon.

    Canon should release a Mark II before all the border taxes kick in.
