Where is the Canon EOS 6D Mark II?

Where is the Canon EOS 6D Mark II?

By Canon Rumors | February 22, 2017 | Canon DSLR Rumors

This is a question we receive multiple times every single day, so I’d figure we’d give an update, even though nothing has really changed.

We expect to see the EOS 6D Mark II announced in the late spring/early summer of this year, with availability in the summer. For the moment, pricing has not yet been set, currency fluctuations may prevent knowing that until much closer to the announcement.

As far as specifications go, very little is known for sure. However, we think by looking at the recent EOS 77D announcement, we can make some good predictions as to what we’re likely to see from Canon’s entry level full frame camera.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Predicted Specifications

  • 24-28mp full frame CMOS
  • 45 AF points (all cross-type)
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • DIGIC 7
  • Built-in Wi-Fi®, NFC and Bluetooth® technology
  • Built-in GPS
  • Vari-Angle touchscreen LCD
  • 6 FPS Shooting
  • HDR Movie & Time Lapse Movie
  • Some form of 4K video
  • Movie electronic image stabilization
  • Dual SD card slots
  • 100% coverage optical viewfinder with some new features

As we all know, Canon very rarely goes way outside of the with new products, as their cameras aren’t just about one specific feature. It’s generally how all of the features come together to make a great shooting experience for the photographer.

We would love to see this camera come in at under the $2000 USD mark.

SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM

Introducing the light bazooka-a new approach to the ultra-telephoto zoom

  1. Top performance with the specification and functionality of a more expensive unit
  2. Compact packaging with uncompromising image quality
  3. Push/pull zoom mechanism incorporated
  4. Telephoto plus macro functionality
  5. Other features

A compact body and top performance in one complete package

An ultra-telephoto lens with an optical stabilizer (OS) system has several advantages. The OS allows the photographer to take photographs in unstable circumstances. The narrow angle of view makes it possible to dramatically compress perspective and flexible handling of the background. The photographer can thereby make the subject appear to jump out of the image, with the area in focus impressively sharp and clear. Nevertheless, ultra-telephoto lenses have traditionally had some disadvantages as well. As the nickname “bazooka” implies, they have tended to be big, heavy, and therefore burdensome to carry around. With the goal of creating an ultra-telephoto lens that is far more accessible, SIGMA incorporated all of its latest technologies into SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary. With its outstanding combination of optical performance and compactness, this is an ultra-telephoto lens that is a joy to carry and use. While keeping the robust functionality and exceptional image quality of an ultra-telephoto zoom lens intact, SIGMA has achieved amazingly compact packaging enclosing 400mm optics. Introducing the new and greatly enhanced “light bazooka” ultra-telephoto zoom lens.

By minimizing axial chromatic aberration, the SIGMA 135mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art makes this bokeh effect not only impressive but also beautiful while delivering superb contrast and sharp image quality in every shot.

A true high-speed lens that delivers a new dimension of visual experience

In taking photographs of starry skies or other celestial scenes at night, or of the seashore with a wide perspective, a large-diameter lens is a strong ally, since it allows the capture of a moving subject by adjusting shutter speed without relying on ISO sensitivity. With its full-frame 35mm coverage, 14mm focal length for an ultra-wide angle of view, F2 barrier-breaking F1.8, the SIGMA 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art is the true high-speed ultra-wide-angle lens for which so many photographers have been waiting. Although some zoom lenses are available that can cover 14mm, the large diameter delivering F1.8 brightness is a singular advantage. Going beyond fast shutter speed, this lens can capture a swarm of fireflies with crystal clarity, a beautiful bokeh effect, and outstanding control of light streaking.
