Where's the updated 6D Mark II?!

I can attest to that as well.... It's pretty amazing in grabbing something to focus on. But in ideal situations the photos are beautiful.

Is it THAT bad having only 11 focus points??? I wanna get the 6D so bad but comparing to the quantity of focus points from the 7D M II..... Im not sure anymore.. HELP!

Sony sensors are awesome, but their cameras are (were) absolute garbage. Recently they've been getting pretty good tho.

If you want a DSLR for Landscape and Portrait the 6D is superb, if you want action and sport buy the 5Dmk 3 for £1,000 more :)

That's the maximum speed that it operates, and honestly i don't see why you'd need any higher.

Because most professionals find the built in flash little more than annoying.

Once you learn basic exposure, and how to operate your camera you'll prefer to shoot with out a flash rather than with a pop up flash. Hands down, a off camera flash will beat a on camera flash, plus you can bounce them and use modifiers to make the light look better.

They don't get much faster. 1/8000 is just one stop better.

What is the reason the 6D do not have the flash? I am considering the 6D or learning pros and cons of both. Would it be due to the better ability to handle in low light conditions? Thank you

Do you feel like you've accomplished something since you got that off chest now. I doubt you were O so knowing from day one pal.

And seriously "NEWB idiots", that's the best you could come up with? Your are joke dude. If anybody's a kid its you for posting that lame comment. -__- Grow up and get a life pal....

There are no winners or losers. We all just agree that Sony's fullframes suck and move on. Canon and Nikon both make outstanding cameras. Respect them both.

Yah, I did check it out. The single point works amazingly well: it locks on even in extremely dim environments. However, it locks on as well as the outside points on the K20D. Not that impressed... Had all the points been like that it would have been a seriously awesome system.

..and I've never seen someone post as an anonymous coward and imply they're a professional with such hateful disrespect to others. (yes, you don't have to point out the irony.)

You were new once too, I was too, and I've been shooting for 30 years, kid.

Don't underestimate it, it actually works very well in low light. It'll lock onto things that the 5d can't even grab focus on.

In all Full Frames comparing Nikon to Canon always Nikon wins.

Don't be so disrespectful of people, it's childish. Must be nice being able to insult others from the safety of your computer. You started at the bottom too so stop acting like your above these people.

Just checking, where do you see on our review that the Canon 6D has a built in flash?
