Photographic authority DPReview posted their Canon EOS 6D Mark II review.

Some excerpts from the conclusion:

[…] the EOS 6D Mark II is a classic Canon DSLR. Is it particularly exciting? No, but really, neither was the original 6D aside from its fairly accessible price point. What the 6D Mark II is, though, is a solid, well-built camera that is capable of producing great images while improving upon its predecessor in almost every measurable way.

[…] the 6D II excels at high ISO values. Once you get past ISO 1600, the 6D II handily pulls away from its crop-sensor cousins and is broadly competitive with market peers.

Comparison with other cameras:

For the same price, Nikon’s D750 offers nearly the same resolution, loads more dynamic range and a far more sophisticated autofocus system. Same goes for the Sony a7 II, though that camera is even cheaper. The Pentax K-1 is an incredible value and gives you even better build quality, unique and innovative features like Pixel Shift, and far more resolution. The only thing that makes the EOS 6D II stand out is Dual Pixel AF, which turns out is only of real value in this camera when shooting single shots of slow-moving subjects or HD video.

That’s why they didn’t give the EOS 6D Mark II the highest award but an 80% score. Sample pictures from the review are here. A closer look to the EOS 6D Mark II image quality is here.
