There’s been a lot of rumors flying around recently about Canon’s new lines of cameras like the Canon EOS 1D Mark II. You should note that the rumor community is pretty skeptical about these specs.
According to the report over on Canon Watch, which is rated at CW3 (50% likely hood of correctness), the 6D Mark II will feature a 28MP sensor and a brand new (but different from 5DSand 5DS r) AF system. The previous rumors had the next 6D with 24MP sensor. But the rumor says that Canon won’t be releasing a full frame camera with the same MP as they Rebel line (makes sense).
Rumored 6D Mark II Specs
- 6 fps
- ISO 100 – 102400 (expandable to 204800)
- New AF system (but not the same as on 5DS)
- 98% viewfinder coverage
- Single SD card slot
- WiFi, NFC, and GPS
- Small improvements for video features
Overall, it looks like a nice update to the 6D, but you’re going to have a lot of people complaining about the files sizes with its 28MP (if that happens). The price is rumored to be about the same as the original 6D (around $2100).
Just this week, Sony’s A7 just dropped below $1000, and the A7 II is only $1500. Yea, people still gripe about mirrors vs. DSLR, but the A7 is competition for the 6D in the budget full frame market. Canon could be facing some trouble trying to convince people to go with their product over Sony’s popular mirrors cameras at the price difference. The Canon 6D Mark II rumored specs sound pretty cool, but at that price, it’s going to be hard for people in between Canona nd Sony.
What do you think about these specs? What should change? What about the price? Leave a comment below!
