Very nice specifications. The EOS 6D Mark II is an allrounder, a DSLR that offers great flexibility and performance for both videographers and still photographers. Reminds me the Canon EOS 80D in some way, a sort of  Jack of all Trades but with a full-frame sensor. I am pretty sure the EOS 6D Mark II is going to be another bestseller, especially if the $1,999 price gets confirmed. Kudos Canon.

Marketing-wise, we heard that the EOS 6D Mark II will be touted as the world’s lightest full-frame DSLR with a vari-angle display.

Announcement expected for June 28 or 29, 2017. Stay tuned!
