Was the battery drain because of the GPS which was present in the 6D addressed in the Mark II?

You've asked this in two different places on the forum.....why don't you just call Canon and ask them this question?

After all, who would know better? ;-)a

Always love nature shots. This was taken near the Sutro Baths ruins near San Francisco. And yes, some post processing.

The “dynamic range issue” reported on this camera is way overblown.

There were reports of magenta cast in the CR2 (raw) files in LR/PS initially but that has been fixed by the latest ACR software.

EDIT: the magenta cast is not a DR issue - its just an Adobe Camera Raw software issue, which is already fixed as of December 2017.

Magenta casts in the shadows over the entire frame is not a DR issue. It is a converter error, or a converter acting upon incorrect information. That is not the "DR" issue. The DR issue is that the 6D2 has more post-gain read noise, which reduces the usability of the shadows.

I have the exact same lens and feel the exact same. If you are lucky enough to have a good focusing EX lens, then they are worth keeping!

I still regret selling my 50mm f/1.4 EX
