CR’s Take: I voted for the AF point spread, it does look a bit tight, though I’m sure it won’t be much of an issue once I get used to the camera. The lack of 4K recording does seem to bug a lot of people. I’m not one of them, but I do understand the frustration.
Will you be buying the Canon EOS 6D Mark II?
|Yes, it’s already been preordered||
9.1% / 1,453
|Maybe, but I’ll wait for real world reviews||
36.3% / 5,782
|I’d love to, but I can’t afford it||
12.7% / 2,017
|No, this is not the camera for me||
27.4% / 4,358
|I’m leaving Canon!||
14.5% / 2,305
CR’s Take: I’ve preordered the camera, I don’t doubt it’ll be a great performer and be a very worthy upgrade over the EOS 6D. I like daily shooting with cameras that don’t cost a ton and if it gets stolen or broken, I’ll survive.
