You are starting to sound like a troll.

Why me troll? Not my review. Be angry at fstoppers, they write it. I laugh at it. Why you not laugh too?

You did not write it but you posted a link to it when the link has already been posted in another thread and you did so to get a reaction.  That is one definition of a troll.

The fact you wrote 'Ouch. This looks bad. Very bad' suggests you did not laugh at it but took it seriously.

But 6D II is not WORSE :) It has improved many things from original 6D, but DR was unfortunately not one of those things. But it will take at least same quality of images as 6D. So why would it not be awesome stills camera?

Keep in mind that some folks here argue that the 6D1 roundly / categorically / absolutely bested the 5D3 sensor with plots like I've shown below. ::)  Never mind the fact that the 5D3 absolutely ate the 6D1 for lunch in almost every other metric / spec / usage consideration -- to those folks, the 6D1 was simply a better camera because the 'film' inside of it was of higher quality.

My point:  for some, improvement or 'bestness' is an absolute (not relative) term.  It's the best Canon sells or it's not, it improved base ISO DR or it didn't, and so on.  I generally don't see the world that way, but people are free to believe what they want.

So can someone explain what the reason would be for me to spend 2k on the 6d mark II or get the $549 sl2 now that the 6d mark II has crap dynamic range coming from a full frame. Might as well get a aps-c. Both have the same resolution and same video features and same flippy screen. It's not like the dynamic range coming from the 6d II is worth it.

If you stay at ISO 100, than in terms of DR you are correct. As soon as you raise ISO over 400 or print larger prints that "crap" 6D II will trample poor SL2 to the smithereens :)

That "crap" DR only applies at base ISO value. And if you expose properly and/or use exposure blending, you can avoid that altogether. Make no mistake - 6D II has good dynamic range, it's just not as good as its peers and many people (myself included) are disappointed that Canon didn't improve 6D II in that regard (such as 5D IV was improved or 80D). But that doesn't make it inherently bad camera with crap DR.

If I have to guess, I think 80% of all the pictures are taken bellow 400 ISO. Just saying.

You mean in general? So what? Most of the photos ever taken were taken with phone cams, and they have far worse DR than any Canon DSLR. This info is of next to no use in helping someone decide whether a given camera is good value for *them*.

This may be a really foolish question to some but what is the difference between 4K time lapse and regular 4k? Why would it do one but not the other? Just curious, as you may have guessed I'm not a video specialist....Thanks in advance!

I'll rough out an answer that I'm sure the more technical folks will correct:

4K time lapse is video assembled from a ton of stills, usually over a very long period of time (hours).  Think one frame captured every 30 seconds for 4 hours.  It can be subsequently turned into a 4K video, but that's done in post after you've assembled all the stills.

Although to be clear in this case, the camera assembles the timelapse and outputs as a regular movie file. It's a neat feature, although more limited than doing it manually with an external intervalometer and specialised software.

But the breaking point is coming.

So is the destruction of the earth when the sun becomes a red giant.  Someone should warn the guys at f-stoppers!

F-stoppers jumps on the bandwagon tricycle to get some page hits.  Thanks, snoke, for helping spread the information clickbait.

What do you think of the hands-on reviews mentioned here?

The Nikon D7500 has one less card slot than the D7200.
What's wrong with Nikon?
The Sony A9 didn't have a Log profile on video shooting when it came out.

Fstoppers hasn't produced any content worth looking at since the Nikon DF came out.

Sure:

1.) Low light performance
2.) Depth of field
3.) 45 Point AF system
4.) GPS
5.) 6.5 FPS
6.) Anti-Flicker
7.) 26MP
8.) 98% Viewfinder Coverage
9.) Battery Life (nearly triple)
10.) AFMA (not sure if SL2 has it, but I doubt it)

+1 of course.  On another thread, I've likened DR Storm 2017 to (say) Honda putting out a new model of a car that is now brimming with new tech but it lost a little punch in first gear compared to its predecessor.  To indict the entire product for one very small aspect of its overall performance implies that's high contrast base ISO work is all you shoot.  And if that's the case, go adapt your EF glass on to an A7 on a tripod and be done with it.  I don't say that to be callous; you have options!

Eventually Canon will care enough about base ISO DR in this price/market point to deliver the product you want, but for whatever reason -- likely Canon's own market research -- says that you won't jump ship over this in enough numbers for the 6D2 to not be profitable.

Also, just reading the posts at other sites re: the wish list for the D850 has been enlightening.  It includes a host of D810 owners who currently are packing a 14+ EV rig -- nearly medium format DR territory -- and they still want more DR.  I get that it matters for some forms of photography, but some folks' nearly endless appetite for it is mind-boggling.
