Opinion:Unlike what everyone writes, I found myself sick with this machine only at high iso, where the returned file had an unacceptable grain, too large, already present at 3200 iso. I never understood if it was a problem related to the fact that I bought it just out and therefore the programs could not decode the files well, but since it was flanked by 6D as a FF body, I could only see the differences against it in this respect. After the negative points (FOR ME only 1), otherwise it is an exceptional machine, suitable for everything, the adjustable display I regret every day, as well as the dual pixel in live view. The 26mp are the right compromise, the files are well workable, quite light and rich in colors. The body is also perhaps one of my favorites such as construction and ergonomics, as well as features, it is a very complete machine. Since it is quite compact, it is also suitable in my opinion for those who travel a lot and want a bodysuit that is fine in the pocket of a crossbody backpack. The 40D burst is perfect for the type of machine and combined with a very performing af module, it does not disappoint even in naturalistic with dynamic subjects.
Pros:File workability, automatic white balance, focus, battery life, adjustable screen.
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 from other users, for example: - Perfect focus 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:Image quality, high iso yield, autonomy, wifi,GPS,touch display
Cons:Syncro flash at 1/180,lack of pop up flash,dynamic range at low sensitivity,no 4k,no headphone jack input,maximum speed 1/4000 sec,the viewfinder does not have total coverage (98%)
Opinion:It's a good camera that doesn't excel at anything in my opinion. It offers good image quality, works very well at high isos but has serious gaps as pointed out in the cons. Syncro flash at 1/180 is old-fashioned stuff now. Since it was a full frame entry level in my opinion they could put the pop up flash. Not that it serves as much with a ff sensor that works well at high isos but can sometimes come in handy to lighten the shadows. The launch price for what it offers was very high three years ago, understandable in 2021 almost halved.
Pros:Screen, battery life, ergonomics, solid in construction, not too heavy
Cons:Dynamic range, not very "responsive" in viewing photos and navigating menus
Opinion:I purchased the used 6d2 to enter the FF world. A nice jump starting from 50D. The impression was immediately very good, in particular I appreciated the posable screen and the construction. The keys are in place, so also satisfied with the ergonomics. I am not positively impressed with the dynamic range, referring to the files of the 5d4 we are on another level, in particular unsatisfactory shadows. Chapter AF, the points are "few" in absolute numbers, especially in this period when mirrorless are making room (with pros and cons, e.g. EVF). Therefore, as more than one user has written, it is not suitable for very dynamic situations, for landscape and portraiture I would say ok. I haven't thoroughly tested the video side, so I'm not going to go into that. In general a good "last" reflex churned out by Canon, I think is enough for a large slice of users, although there may be a temptation to buy the latest product placed on the market... I found an indispensable occasion, so I exchanged it for an R whose files are great and the autofocus is certainly superior too. Of the REFLEX for now I regret the feeling of the optical viewfinder, especially in situations of strong ambient light.
Pros:Ease of use, "touch" and adjustable screen, overall yield.
Cons:Knowing what you buy, nothing in my opinion.
Opinion:Bought for about a year, to replace the 6D first model. I built them around a good level mini-kit: Samyang 14mm EF, Canon 24-70 f4 L and 70-300 L all in a small Cullman backpack. Used on several occasions, it has never betrayed me: good noise tightness at high ISO, acceptable dynamic range, excellent general yield. I don't need to shoot at 10 ftg per second so the burst speed is enough for me. I also have a 7DII kit that I use for the naturalistic photo but when possible (shed +tripod) on the 6D II I mount the 500f4 L and... I throw away very few... It is certainly not the most advanced machine on the market but the affordable price and the results that can be obtained allow you to enter the world of FF with great satisfaction and in its own right. And when you have the money for an R5 or an EOS 5 mkIV, it will become a great second body...
