Any views on a new 6D?

We’re told that the EOS 6D Mark II will not come until after the EOS 5D Mark IV begins shipping, which will be into the first quarter of 2016. This would follow the same timeline as the EOS 5D Mark III & EOS 6D announcement.

The EOS 6D Mark II will have a slightly smaller and lighter body. It’s suggested we may actually see it use a different battery than the LP-E6/E6n to help with weight reduction. There won’t be any radical changes to the body such as an EVF or articulating LCD. Expect the megapixel count to rise, but not above 24mp. It’s likely the EOS 6D Mark II will have its own sensor just like the original camera.

We’ve received very little about this camera over the last few months, so I suspect the timeline for an announcement is accurate.

Disappointed by no articulating LCD. Why would they want to make it even smaller? Isn't already small enough?
Would probably not trade from 70D.

I can see logic in releasing new 6D after 5D, so the more affordable option is less likely to tear consumers away from the costlier product.

And the 6D with a swively screen like the Rebels and 60D, yes it makes perfect sense for the FF in this market section to have it.

There are times I really wish my 5D3 or 7D2 had it. Hooking up my Note 2 via DSLR controller etc, is not nearly as instant gratification.

Sounds good. If it ends up having the same sensor as the 5D4, I will surely buy them both.

i like the looks of that rumor. FWIW, the source is CanonWatch who gave it a rating of CW3.

i suspect the 5D IV ends up at 30MP, that would keep the rebels, 6d and 5d more or less in line with what the last round looked like.

What i want in the 6Dmk2:

Better sensor (higher dynamic range, but more megapixels not really needed);
Articulating LCD screen: this essential for me because i shoot on a tripod a lot.
Same autofocus system as the 70D/7D (sports will not be my main focus but i don't want to be limited by the camera like on the 6D when i shoot it)
5/6 fps (see above);
New metering system of the 7dmk2;
DualPixel technology;
All the goodies for movies but 4K is not really needed;

So basically a Canon version of the Nikon D750. Do it Canon!

Order of importance:
1 - Better dynamic range;
2 - Articulating LCD screen;
3 - Better focusing system and a bit more fps;

Pretty much this. AF personally I'd say was my weak point with the 6D. I miss the articulating screen with the 60D.

I'm going to be really surprised if the 6D2 has an articulating LCD.

I would actually be annoyed if they put an articulating screen on it. The WiFi does anything you would need out of that, plus articulating screens are found on the cheap model cameras, not the "professional" level cameras.

Thr 6D was never meant to be a professional lecel camera, its entry level full frame.

I tend to agree - whilst helpful no doubt, a revolving screen for me is not something I associate with a full frame somehow, even an entry model...

+1000 for the 2 first points. I shoot often on tripod (and often near the ground) with 24mm TS-E II. An articulating screen (in landscape or portrait direction) will be a big plus!

How many of you looking for an articulating screen have used EOS Remote and a camera with built in WiFi?

I have used both and can't imagine using an articulating screen any more than once out of twenty times I am doing anything other than looking through the viewfinder. Not that we would have to choose one or the other.

Titi, in your case you could be standing upright behind your camera. Or you could be 20 feet away standing behind a tree. I may have posted this already in this thread, but I have placed my camera on a shelf or on a tripod with its back against a wall and used EOS Remote from another room numerous times when taking shots of a room. So much more powerful than articulating.
