Photography Blog posted their exhaustive Canon EOS R6 Mark II review. From their conclusion:

The new Canon EOS R6 II is a solid rather than spectacular upgrade of the 2-year-old original R6., but considering that the 2020 model was already so good, that’s certainly no bad thing.

Canon have sensibly chosen to refine, rather than revolutionize, what was already a very capable camera, principally improving its burst shooting capabilities and auto-focus system along with incorporating 20% more resolution, more capable video and improved connectivity.

[…]

The R6 continues to be a much more affordable proposition that still delivers almost everything that an enthusiast photographer or videographer could possibly want, buoyed by the addition of the new sensor, 40fps burst shooting, more versatile auto-focusing and unlimited video recording.

Overall, the new R6 Mark II is a sensible evolution of a an already great camera, adding enough new features and extra performance to keep it both competitive and still worthy of our highest 5-star Essential award.

Photography Blog posted their Canon EOS R6 Mark II first impression review. They say:

Canon have made several notable connectivity improvements to the Mark II R6 including both faster 5GHz wi-fi and Bluetooth 5.0 support, and the ability to operate as a webcam or use the camera for live streaming via UVC/UAC, none of which its predecessor supports.

After using the new EOS R6 II for a couple of hours to try and capture fast-moving dancers, it’s clear that the new R6 II is a solid rather than spectacular upgrade of the original R6.

Considering that the 2020 model was already so good, though, that’s certainly no bad thing, with Canon perhaps sensibly choosing to refine rather than revolutionize what was already a very capable blueprint.
