Drool - better focusing and low light performance and an extra 25% more pixels for a bit more detail.

Can we see some test images at the upper ISO limits, and get a feel as to how much better focus tracking is on moving subjects in moderate light situations?
Also is colour richness / dynamic range still good at say ISO 800?

26.2Mp must be the Canon 'this one goes to 11' moment.

Quote:26.2Mp must be the Canon 'this one goes to 11' moment.

I though the main trade off was ISO noise vs pixels, and Canon potentially have improved usable ISO somewhat AND also got more pixels. so maybe this even goes to 12.5 now. More pixels is generally not a bad thing apart from the file sizes. And you don't need to shoot full size if you don't wish to.

BTW - thanks before this i had no idea what up to 11 meant.

Predictably massively overpriced for what it is. Yes there are now a lot of smaller sensor cameras on the market in the same price bracket, but they all offer something that is in some way top specification - this Canon, like all Canon's pitched at a lower price level, gives the usual impression of being deliberately hobbled to differentiate it from its higher priced stablemates. There are other full frame DSLRs on the market that are much older, but don't look out of date next to the 6DII and are far more keenly priced.

To be fair, they're all at that game - mk 2 models at double the price across the board, it seems.

Ill stay with the 6D, which by all accounts has a greater dynamic range. Way too pricey.

I'm watching the prices on this swing widely, AmazonUUK is +/- 300 in the last few days, Digital Rev (Grey importer) is 500 below launch price on a special 2 day deal - are people worried that they have ordered to much stock and need to shift it - is the MK2 still a good FF entry but no longer a 6D mk1 upgrade step?

I like what Willie says above as i have a 6D, but wanted the MK2 to offer more DR.

Lack of 4K video and mediocre dynamic range at this price? What was Canon thinking?
I predict there will be a lacklustre response in as far as sales go for Canon for this Full frame upgrade. Sony just over took Nikon in sales-Canon can't be far behind with missed opportunities like this .Very disappointed in the 6D MK 11

There is a lot of talk about the reduced DR on this camera; take everything on the internet with a large pinch of salt.
1. Canon do not clip the lower levels of the sensors range, so when you increase the shadows you will get some red banding. This can be removed in post processing, so do not believe it is the disasters some sites would have you believe.
2. Nikon clip,the blacks in their sensor output at about 15%, so there is no red banding.
3. The photographic DR in Canon and Sony (Nikon) sensors is about 1 EV difference or less. A 14 bit ad converter cannot give a DR greater than 14, and the widely used DXO DR numbers are mathematical projections. ( see their methodology)
4. So if you like the camera, don't be swayed by its 'poor DR' there is a lot more to photography than that.

And, finally, 'weather sealing' is not complete around all the ingress points - see Canon's own diagrams of the rubber sealed areas and the 'tight body seal' junctions. It will not object to a bit of light rain, but I wouldn't want to use it in a continuous Lancastrian downpour without a cheap bag cover.

It is expensive, but since last year with the drop,in the value of the pound against the foreign currencies, everything has gone up, and will continue to do so. The Pentax K1 was 1699 at launch, now 1999, Canon lenses have also gone up about 20%. It may not come down in price that quickly.

The bonus here is there will now be a flood of 6D MkI's on the used market places - time to grab a bargain I think . . . .
