Canon 6D Mark ii in 2021... YES

Updated: May 19, 2021

I bought the Canon 6D Mark ii and here’s why.

After just a short period of time with my new Canon 6D, I became a super advocate for this camera. I felt like it was a professional grade camera for a cost I could justify.

What I love about the Canon 6D Mark ii is a lot of the same things you will love about the Canon 5d Mark IV, if you choose to get one. It’s quick, its light, has awesome ISO performance and of course, that’s one heck of a price tag.

WHAT I NEED IN A CAMERA … aka the backbone to this Canon 6d mark ii review.

1 Focus & shooting: It has been quick and reliable in all lighting conditions.

2 Image Qualities: A camera that has a full frame sensor, good megapixel count (26.2 on the 6DM2), beautiful colour, good dynamic range and high ISO capabilities without too much degradation of the image.

3 Function, Feel and Fancy Features: When you hold a camera in your hands, it has to feel good. Something you want to pick up and carry with you. So with that said, it helps if it’s lightweight without feeling cheap.

If a camera has these things, I’m interested. If it’s priced less than 2k, I’m really interested.


If you’re a travel or portrait photographer who already shoots Canon but debates the worthiness of the Canon 6d Mark ii you’re missing out by not giving this camera a try.

If you think you’re not “pro enough” by owning a Canon 6d or 6D Mark ii, then you need to work on your confidence, not your camera.

This camera rocks and is growing in popularity in droves. I’m not turning back (or switching to Nikon, or switching to Fuji, or switching to Sony, etc.) until Canon comes up with another upgrade.

The Canon 6d Mark ii really is a great camera. Great function and form, beautiful images, nice little perks and truly you just can’t beat the price point.


So…who should buy this camera?

If you’re not a professional but want a professional camera at a good price point – this is your camera.

If you’re a professional who wants a second camera – the Canon 6d Mark ii is your camera.

If you’re a professional travel or portrait photographer who doesn’t want to break your bank or your back – this is your camera.

If you already own a 6D and are looking to upgrade – I’d say yes

So there you have it guys, yes I shoot with the Canon 6d Mark ii.
