I managed to get my grandkids to stay still and pose for some photos...

Will contribute a pic to this thread. Got the camera out in the daylight today and snagged a shot of my car. My last camera was a 5D classic so this is a pretty big step for me. I like it.

These were some of the first clicks with the 6D2 for me less than 24hrs after taking delivery. It was a bit of a struggle trying to adjust to a new set of controls in the dark standing out in 25 degree weather.

wasn't gonna buy a 6d2 this soon but there's a photo expo here and canon philippines just gave a huge discount from the (converted to USD) $2325 down to $1627 (including the ff: 3-year warranty, extra LPE6N, 16GB SDHC, bag, $100 electronic gift cheque, gorilla pod, cleaning kit). I know it's probably cheaper in the states or elsewhere but this is the pricing in our country. I've only had a few minutes with it since I had to take care of the kids, but I'm really liking the viewfinder AF - really big step up from the original 6D (which I still have but will be sold in a month's time). The better AF was what really mattered to me and DPAF helps a lot too. Happy that it didn't grow in size so I can still keep my bag (which is already tight). will join the picture-posting soon enough but for now, I'm pretty pleased with the purchase.

just got my 6D2 a few days ago and I haven't really been able to put it through its paces...I've just been able to set it up to my liking and I guess the thing I like the most is the new AF system (both VF and DPAF). I particularly like the new 45-pt AF system since it's much easier to nail focus thanks to them being cross-type. The spread isn't too bad especially coming from a 6D. I know the D-pad is no joystick (like the 1D X/5D/7D series) but I've set it up for direct AF point selection and the DOF button for One shot to AI Servo mode.

Some quick pictures I got of my Grandson's birthday party. This type of shots is one of the reasons I got this camera, and it did not disappoint. Even though I used bounce flash on the camera, I still had to lift some shadows in post, and also reduce some highlights (Especially the shot near the windows) While the lifting and reducing wasn't extreme, to me it was a real world example of the type of editing I would do.

quick question regarding the metering and AF:

I'm using evaluative metering and I'm using zone AF focusing on things on my desk. On the left is an invitation printed on black paper while on the right is a white paper cup. When I put the zone of points on the invitation, I get an exposure reading of 1/200, f/1.4, ISO800 but when I move the points to the right and it focuses on the white paper cup, I get 1/500, f/1.4, ISO800 (I'm in Av mode). Note that I am not moving the camera but just the AF points. I understand that the 6D2 has a new metering system compared to the older 63-zone type in the original 6D. Does this mean that what I'm focusing on also affects the metering...kinda like the spot-metering linked to AF point on some pro models?

I use the 6D Mark II with a 70-200mm f/4L IS lens for portraits of my rescue dogs.
We had 30 applications for this puppy within 24 hours of posting on our rescue website.

Despite the many bad things that are being said about the 6D2 camera, I am beginning to like it. At first, I was not too happy with it but, it is growing on me.

I might suggest downloading the Owner's Manual from the Canon Website. It has a lot more information on the camera than that which is published in the printed manual.

I purchased the Kindle edition of the David Bush book, "Canon EOS 6D Mark II Guide to Digital SLR Photography" and it is a great addition to the Canon user Manual...
