Sorry for the very long post. I couldn't resist :(

As owner of A9, I couldn't happier with this toy. I agree, touch AF on Canon M is better than Sony. I"m holding myself not to buy a7r III as 2nd body until I see specs a7s III.

Number one on my wish list for 2018 is a Canon 6D mk III with a new sensor with high DR.   And a wider spread on the AF points.   And more versatility of video output.  And maybe 4k, too, why not?
 
This is a minor refresh -- just a few things to change -- so we shouldn't have to wait 5 years for it!!!   ::)

Canon's got you covered here 

Yeah, but it costs more.  Canon needs to just sell the 5DIV for the price of a T3i.  Or else they're doomed.
The reality is the Canon 6D MKII with a wider AF spread (not more AF points) and slightly better DR on the sensor was perfectly within their abilities and would not have damaged 5D MKIV sales. Ive bought the 6D MKII its a good camera, it could have been better and still maintained differential to higher priced offerings. I'm as loyal as you are to Canon that doesn't mean being a slave and agreeing with everything they do. I don't know about North America but in the UK £ 2K is still a lot of money and well above a Rebel in pricing that's what a 6D MKII costs.

The 6D MKII is definitely a Marmite camera just as the original 6D was (you love it or hate it). Where it works it works really well i.e. tilty / flippy screen, touch screen etc. but the AF spread should have been wider for full-frame and whilst Ive had truly great shots from the 6D MKII a touch more DR would definitely have been preferable.

The next Canon item on my personal list for 2018 is the new EF 85mm f1.4L IS USM I'm not in the market for another camera in 2018 the 5DS and the 6D MKII cover my needs at present.

I can't imagine that the AF spread on the 6D2 is worse than the 5D4 when you only use cross type points. Especially for lenses slower than f/4 (like 100-400) the horizontal spread on the 5D4 is ridiculous.

I think it is a good decision. I do more stills and very less video. So I am planning to go with a7r III but I will wait for a decent deal since I am not in a rush + I have a9 until then.

Let down of the year was sadly the 6D mk II sensorwise...
The rest of the camera I like... may be a little larger AF point spread but well, you can't have it all I guess.

The minimum focusing distance of the EF-S 35mm is a way too short

Translation: The EF-S 35mm isn't the lens that I want and STUPID CANON for not doing an 60mm macro, a couple of 100mm macros or even a 180mm macro which would be FAR closer to what I WANT.

Canon already has a 60mm macro.

Hi Okaro.
Yes and a couple of 100 macro and even a 180mm macro, that is rhe point, plenty of choice.
It is called sarcasm but it doesn’t often cross language / international barriers intact.  :)

Cheers, Graham.
Edit for spelling.

The rest of the camera I like... may be a little larger AF point spread but well, you can't have it all I guess.

See, I voted *for* the 6D2 because although I'll probably not get one, it answered almost all common criticisms of the 6D - namely, it offered a better AF system, a mobile screen, and the price wasn't bumped up appreciably*. The DR thing (and even more so the AF point spread) was blown out of all proportion on these forums. Overall, they updated the line in ways most people wanted, and it's a pretty compelling entry-level FF DSLR whatever people say.

*I thought the RRP was said to be less than the 6D's, but Wikipedia suggests otherwise.

Agree - make the MFD half to infinity.   That will solve your problem  ;D

I readily admit that my grasp of optical physics is limited.  I read this forum to alleviate that.  Thank you for your informative although sometimes sarcastic posts.

The greater the focal length of a lens, the more it magnifies. Keeping object distance the same, a telephoto lens renders it larger than a wideangle lens. This much should be obvious. But it also directly follows that if you want to render an object the same size with a wideangle as with a telephoto, you need to decrease the object distance. To get a 1:1 magnification with a 35mm lens then obviously requires a shorter focusing distance than with, say, a 100mm lens.

I voted for the 77. I wanted to vote for the 6D mark 2, but the camera left a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth.  It just missed too many checkmarks to make it the best camera in my taste at that price point..   Worst is the silly center spread of the autofocus points. If it had been the same spread as my 80D I would have been happy.   A sensor senisitivity worse than the model it replaces is unacceptable..  it should at least be the same. And again the lack of a second memory slot while the competition all offer that, is also a bit underwhelming..  These things are needed to me to get topspot at the price point where it is located.
I was saving up for the 6D mark 2 but I think i spend it somewhere else now
