    What is going on with Canon's prices in Europe?

    Yes, if the 80D and 7D MK II were the only products with increased price, one could conclude it might be related to upcoming new versions of those products. However there are price increasements for other DSLRs and lenses. And most of them are direct or indirect connected to the cashback offerings.

    What is going on with Canon's prices in Europe?

    To be fair I looked into Cameranu and Cameratools only. They seem to keep their offers and prices the same. The type of cashback offer does not matter. For all the products that have a cashback label they increased the price. Other shops like Kamera Express or Cameraland did not increase...

    What is going on with Canon's prices in Europe?

    You might be right. But it is not so much the kind of cashback deal. It is more the fact that it HAS a cashbackdeal. For example the 6D II was €1949 without cashback - now it is €2029. I can guarantee you that when the cashback is finished, the 6D MK II will go down in price again. The 6D with...

    What is going on with Canon's prices in Europe?

    Dear Haggie, If you visit the Dutch webshops you will see that all those cameras are listed for a special cashback action of Canon. So, they increase the price first, offer cashback and netto you pay the same price as without cashback. This is going on for years. I dislike that and it seems...

    Since July 28 I have shot a few (or more) photos with the 6D MK II In most aspects it is a good upgrade from the 6D (perviously owned). And though some reviewers claim that it is less interesting for 6D owners to upgrade....I disagree. Dustin already mentioned those aspects It is fair to say...

    AFMA on the 6D2

    Congrats on the 6D2 Don. Honestly, to me it makes sense to group all the customizable Autofocus settings under C.Fn.II:Autofocus. It seems logic like group all the customizable settings for Exposure. I enjoy my 6D MK II. A pleasure to use and since I did AFMA my lenses the focus is spot on.

    Well, I am not R&D of Canon. They may come up with more and/or add something new. But, by now you should know Canon.

    Review: Canon EOS 6D Mark II by TDP

    I agree about the wheel on the back. I also find the buttons on the back to be more plastic-like when pressing them. The remote socket in the front is a big plus. But why to point it to the left instead down? Pointing to the left makes it more complex for the use of a L-bracket. Looking forward...
