|Canon EOS-6D Mk II full frame DSLR?|
Canon is expected to release the EOS-6D Mk II camera some time in 2016. The EOS-5D Mk IV and EOS-1D X Mk II cameras will be announced first before the 6D replacement comes out.
My readers know I am not a fan of the current version of this camera. For those who want to get into full frame photography with a new camera and a limited budget, the EOS-6D may be a tempting option but my advice is to get a refurbished EOS-5D Mk III from the Canon store or some other reputable retailer.
The Series II camera will not come with any ground breaking technology. After all, the selling feature is its lowest price point into full frame DSLR photography. It is still early days to predict the specifications of the replacement camera but I expect it to have evolutionary improvement and perhaps a slight reduction in size and weight due to a newer design and the use of improved materials. However, like the current EOS-6D, it was the first Canon DSLR that came with WiFi. I will not be surprised the EOS-6D Mk II will similarly come with some 'fluffy' technology, like swivel touchscreen LCD, etc.
