Is there any chance that the slightly larger 6D II will have a joystick like the 5D and 7D?

I'd like to see the 6D II go slightly upmarket, and keep the original 6D as the cheapest FF camera, and eventually replace it with an 8D.

You wont get af point selector joystick or good 4k with better codecs or dual memory card slots or faster card interface as those features will ruin sales of more expensive 5D mk 4.

no, it would have to be much larger. it's larger to handle the fully articulated screen.

not that at all, the AF joystick simply doesn't fit in the back of a 6D.

All those clamouring for the tilty flippy screen will be rejoicing if this is true.

The natural place to push the 6D MKII is at the section in the market Nikon fit the D750 (which must be due replacement soon).
If Canon come close to the 51point AF that camera has (45 like the 80D would be fine), move the fps up from 4.5, add a second SD slot (not CF) whilst retaining GPS, Wi-Fi, improve on the metering system then at UK price of £ 2K to 2.5K would be the likely starting point for a new release whilst still not stepping on the toes of the more expensive 5D MKIV.

That would make it a great second camera to the 5D MKIV or an advanced camera for hobby photographers wanting full frame.

why would it be.. the natural place is to sit approximately side by side ergonomically and functionality wise as the full frame version of the 80D.

canon and nikon rarely match camera to camera exactly.

If the joystick wont fit(there is space on the body for a joystick canon wont give it to us for a reason) then its not hard to move that 8-way Dpad up by an inch or so. I have 70D and I hate the position of Dpad which is why I still go back to shooting with 500D more than 70D which give me sore thumb after 2-3 hrs of shooting in field. Also since most cameras have touchscreen these days why not just implement touch to drag AF selection like one found on Nikon D5500 or EOS M5.

I can't see both of these coming out in July and canon having nothing for August / Sept.

Yet the Mark 2 might be different, it's happened to the 5 series (button layout etc)

not that dramatically and there's still not enough room unless you are dropping the fully articulating screen alltogether.


there's a 6D.
to add an articulated screen in there, the right side buttons will be squeezed more to the right, the LCD screen shifted a bit more to the right for the hinge.
where do you add a joystick in there without having it disturbed by your thumb accidentally all the time?


the 5D has a much taller frame to incorporate everything on the right side of the LCD, and even still, it has to have room on the left hand side for buttons.

If they were to include the touch and grab AF point selection on the LCD that the M5 has I honestly wouldn't miss the thumbstick very much. That works great - although functionality would be somewhat altered from a mirrorless in the transition from EVF to OVF.

The 80D doesn't have a joystick so I doubt if the 6D II will either.

There have to be features justifying the 1.5k-2k price difference between 6D2 and 5D4. Being able to change AF points while holding your camera normally is likely one of them.

highly unlikely, that resides in powershot firmware, not DSLR firmware.
