"YOU GET AN AWARD! AND YOU GET AN AWARD!

Everyone gets ..(you get it) ;D


Seriously though, SL2 as an enthusiast camera, and 6d as best full framer? TEE, HEE. It makes sense tho, because its the only one of three non-specialty (ie the 5dR) full framers...there was no other cam to give it to.

You know what? YOU get an award! (sorry) :eek:

Why is everyone so shocked about 6D2?

DSLR Professional went to Nikon D850
DSLR Expert went to Canon 6DII

What recent DSLR would you have given those two awards to instead?? Your choices on full frame DSLR releases are rather limited :)

In its defense, the Canon 6DII is an amazing camera, especially for the price, and if I had my money from the purchase back, I'd buy it again, because (1) what better DSLR can I buy at that price point and (2) what other full frame DSLR has an articulating screen?

There’s just this weird perception that the 6D II is a bad camera just because everyone expected it to have improved low iso dr. Even though everyone who actually owns and uses one says it’s excellent.

I don’t get why the interwebz hates on it so much.

The 6D II??? You mean the 10 year old tech that upset me so much I bought a wonderful Sony A7R III???

Because Canon is the most successful camera company and people love to tear down what is at the top.
Because the techno-geeks only care about new and exciting - and all the review sites are run by techno-geeks.
Because people read the review sites and then act like moronic sheep, mindlessly repeating what the reviewers say.

A great win for the 6DII.
The 6D was so good that a minor upgrade is still a camera of the year.
I'd say it was the 4K video on the 6DII that made the difference.
Pity they have it so well hidden in the menus that very few people find it.

Of course, it is an amazing camera, and pretty much everyone who has actually used one is very happy with the results. But as we are seeing demonstrated on this thread, one person after another who has never used the camera can only spout negative bile. What makes it even funnier is how everyone thought the 6D had great IQ. Since the IQ of cameras is virtually unchanged going back a couple generations, it should seem quite obvious to people that in real life shooting the 6D II would be great, too. But, no, pixel peeping test results prove otherwise! When I was choosing between the 6D and the Sony A7 II, the 6D gave me better looking photos, was easier to use and to hold, better AF, better exposure metering. I would be monumentally surprised if the next gen Sony was noticeably better than it's predecessor, so I'm pretty sure that today the choice between the 6D II and the Sony A7 III would be just as favorable for the Canon.

But look out! Techno geeks and review readers rule! In my opinion, if you haven't used a 6D or 6D II, your opinion is meaningless.

Since when is the 6DII a professional tool?
The award said 'Expert' - so I suggest you improve your reading skills.

And why would a professional not use it?
