We have been trying hard to find out an announcement timeframe for the Canon EOS R6 Mark II. We have been told that the plan is to announce the camera before the end of 2022, exactly when is unknown. We don't know if the EOS R6 Mark II will ship in 2022.
There are people that base buying decisions on future products, and we receive a lot of “should I wait for the R62 instead of getting the R6”?
Based on history, these are the things to consider when asking this question.
- The Canon EOS R6 Mark II will cost more than the EOS R6 at launch
- The Canon EOS R6 Mark II will likely be hard to come by for a few months after release.
- The Canon EOS R6 will likely receive a rebate of some kind.
- You can buy and shoot with an EOS R6 today, we can't say for sure able to shoot with an EOS R6 Mark II.
- If video is your focus, we think that the EOS R6 Mark II will be more like a “C” version of R6 without the active cooling.
