I own a 6D. My son has a 5DII and a 5DIII so I have shot with all three. For me the 6D is better than a 5DII. The 6D beats the 5DII in low light and just about everything else that is important to me. The 6D does not have the focusing points that a 5DIII has but I don't mind because I shoot landscapes, cars (sitting still), and architecture.

Why not compare the specs and make a decision based upon your needs?

I chose the 5DII last month simply because it felt more natural to me, shape, size, control layout and IMO its a well proven winner with which i have no doubt that ill never be able to use it to its fullest potential anyways.

6D wins the high ISO IQ race.
5DIII wins the AF race
5DII wins the price race.

All three will pretty much deliver the exactly the same picture from ISO50 to maybe ISO3200 from what I can tell.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

I think there's not a big difference between the 5d mark II and the 6d.
The 6d is newer so it would be better. Otherwise I won't understand why they should made it.
Maybe the WI-FI function could make a difference for you.
You can't make a wrong choice, both are great camera's.
If you pick up a used 5d it's definitely a lot cheaper than a new 6d.

6D has much better high ISO performance and better center point (-3). Otherwise not much difference.

Much better ISO performance? dunno about that. People love to use the term "blows out of the water", and when you look at it objectively, that truly isn't the case. Is it better? Is it an improvement? Yes. IMHO it's incremental improvement and not revolutionary.

Low light focus is better on the 6D, but what isn't said is how long it takes to focus in very low light, but eventually it will focus.

One thing that may be worth considering is the 5d2 has a higher rated shutter. I've been happy with my 5d2 but If I was buying new today I would probably opt for the 6D with the 24-105 for $2200.

Really? What's the difference between a used 5DMkIII and a new 5DMkIII? Maybe it would be more accurate to say:

used vs new is like comparing apples on the tree to apples in your hand. :):)
