How does the 6d mk2 compare to the original 6d? I hear that it wasn't that great of an upgrade, but I would like to hear from the knowledgeable ones here, as $1200 seems to be a pretty good price.

the biggest upgrades are in the processor being much newer, faster, smarter, ie better.

the 6dmk2 also has a much better autofocus system for both stills and video (DAF-dual auto focus)

some suggest that DAF is the best tracking autofocus in the biz especially in video.

the three major negatives is there is no headphone jack (there is a mic input) so monitoring audio when shooting vids is by looking at the display. the second neg is that the vid is not 4k. the third neg is only one card slot.

as for stills, folks are pleased with the images-it's a canon full frame sensor which produces that wonderful canon color plus the 6dmk2 is much cheaper than the 5dmk4.

thumbs up.

I have also seen some reviews of that but others say it's a great camera. I particularly like the improved noise reduction.

This is new with one year Canon warranty.

The only reason some of the reviews were negative is because some thought it wasn't enough of an improvement over the original.

Many reviews not liking the low-light and dynamic range capabilities. Never touched one myself, but that is what I have been reading.

Yes, the 6D was a mild step backwards in terms of low light performance and dynamic range. I actually had an original 6D to go along with my 5D III b/c the 6D sensor was better than the 5D III. Sold the 6D when I got a Sony a7R II. But the 6D II has massive improvements to the auto focus and is still a great camera if you’re in the Canon eco-system.

I don't get into all the minutiae of the sensor specs but I'm not so sure low light and dynamic range are actually a step back. My impression is there are a lot of measurebators who wanted massive improvements (from an already fine camera) in noise and dynamic range. When they didn't get them, they poo-pooed the Mark II.

Reminds me when the armchair film shooters argued about different film batches.

I just shot my jobs and collected the money.
