Canon EOS 6D Mark II Talk [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | September 27, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

There has been a bit of chatter since the EOS 5D Mark IV announcement about the upcoming Canon EOS 6D Mark II. We’re told to expect the camera in the first half of 2017, with CP+ in February being a strong possibility for an announcement. We’re told the new camera is going to be 25mp (prototypes exist), have an articulating screen, dual SD card slots and shoot some form of 4K. I’d assume DPAF is also going to be included in the camera. Also expect some weight savings and a slightly smaller size.

This is [CR1], so treat it accordingly.
