|Canon 6D Mark II|
Pros: File workability, automatic white balance, focus, battery life, adjustable screen, touch focus with live-view.
Cons: As for my use, at the moment no one.
Opinion: For six years I used the previous 6D, with satisfaction but also with some problems, already described in many messages of other users, for example: - Focus always perfect with the central and inaccurate point with the sides, especially in low light conditions, as was often the case in the evening photographing lamps in a furniture showroom. - Inaccurate and variable white balance between shots. I noticed the problem by photographing furniture in the same showroom, the wooden floor and furniture produced an unpleasant and heavy dominant yellow-orange on the white walls, which Then I always had to correct, differently between sequences of photos, with the help of the PhotoChecker. Shooting only in RAW you can intervene in post-production, rebalancing the color temperature even for sequences of shots, but it is still a hassle. ••• With the 6D Mk II, on the other hand, the automatic white balance is almost perfect, or requires small calibrations. All environments (the same ones I photographed before with 6D) appear with a more natural light, without obvious color dominants, in particular the walls appear much whiter even in newly opened shots with Lightroom, without any correction. That surprised me. ••• Focus in the MkII 6D is a whole different world than 6D. All points react smoothly even in low light conditions. I read that there are critics who say that they are too focused in the center, for me he complains about fat broth. For the moment that's it, since I only used it for the first photos of new furniture and furnishings. But even the customer immediately noticed the improvement already in the previews that I send them to make her choose the shots to be post-produced... "with the new machine you take better photos" he told me yesterday :-)

Pros: Ergonomics, image quality, high ISO hold
Cons: Automatic White Balancing
Opinion: I decided to write after reading the previous comment. I've been using the 6D for 5 years and I'm more than satisfied. I use it for work, then architecture and furniture but also for some wedding of friends, mainly with the 24-70 f/4, but also with 50mm f/1.8 and 35mm f/2. Arriving at the 6D from a 50D I first enjoyed the hold at high ISO, which I can safely set even to over 2000 without having too much noise (which however is easily deleteable with so many software). The only flaw I noticed is in the use with the automatic WB, just change the frame a little to have a different color temperature. Maybe he calculates it on the focus points?. But working exclusively in RAW is a minor problem because I can set the point of white ness at my leisure during the "development" for homogeneous groups of shots. Many complain about the poor quality of secondary focus points, but it is a defect that I have not noticed (perhaps because hardly photograph in low light?). I don't make videos, nor do burst photos so I don't express myself on these features.
