I had gone from a 70D to a 7DII a year ago. The focus system and FPS made it a worthwhile upgrade for wildlife and BIF that I do. As I thought I would, I missed having the flip screen. After having had a 5D classic for a time, I knew I wanted to try FF again, but something more modern. Early in the calendar year, I added a 6DII for landscape, portrait, vaca, etc, and then a 24-70is. The flip screen, WiFi, and improved AF over the 6DI were main drivers in the decision. The menu and button layout were familiar so it was an easy transition. It’s definitely NOT a mini 5D4, but more of a full frame 80D.

I’ve not encountered DR issues, but I don’t necessarily push those limits in post anyway. Yes, by all accounts the lower ISO DR is worse than the 80D. I shoot almost exclusively in raw though, so I can’t speak to how in camera jpg processing will be in one vs the other.

I’ve used the 6DII for some wildlife and BIF and have been pleasantly surprised that it’s more capable than expected. Yes the points are clustered, but I’m more of a center of the frame shooter, so it does not hinder me.

I will defer any DOF discussion to the other threads you are discussing the same topic of FF vs crop.

Early summer I was not sure if I would keep the 6DII wondering if I really needed it, and could I justify the addt’l investment. I took the 7DII on a family beach vaca to Cape Cod. Got some great pics, I wondered how thankful I’d be for weather sealing when heavy mist moved in during a boat tour, but no flip screen, no WiFi, and a couple lesser things changed my mind. I subsequently added a 16-35is and Rok14. It was great having both bodies at an airshow this summer and I’ve shot a couple corporate events for my company with the 6DII. I’ve been quite happy with it.

Last two photos from my excursion up the California coast. One of the most beautiful drives in the country...if not anywhere!

A couple of pictures from a recent visit to the "Kelpies" in the UK. These stand either side of the canal with a lock inbetween the two.

I must concur. The first one is a great angle.

They look like giant xylophones.

I would buy this lens in a heartbeat, but my next lens needs to be a zoom (maybe 24-70) because I shoot basketball & I need it for under the basket.

I've never shot sports before so that's probably why haha.

So I know this is a 6D II thread, but I have a question about it & your 24-70. I own 2 7Ds and they've served me well for sports (in good light). I need 2 new bodies as my 7Ds are showing their age, without a camera I'm not making money. I just bought the 6D MI & was thinking of an 80D or 6D MII for the second body (I briefly looked @ the 7D MII but the only thing I like about it is the FPS).

I'm not sure I can go back to crop after seeing the results I've been getting from the 6D. So now I'm thinking of getting a second 6D MI, or a MII. Also need a 24-70mm for under the basket @ basketball games. Dropping 2 grand on the F/2.8 is tough and was looking at the F/4 @ a thousand $$ cheaper.

How does your 24-70mm hang with the 6D @ higher ISO, being @ F/4?? I'm aware this is a subjective question because every gym is different, but I cover a major college and the gym is fairly well lit.

Any input would be appreciated, thank you.
