No EOS 6D II Because the Full Frame EOS M Still Exists?
An interesting rumor has appeared today suggesting that Canon may not in fact be planning on releasing an EOS 6D Mark II because the full frame EOS M camera which got a lot of coverage last summer may still be on the way. The rumor suggests that the full frame EOS M would almost certainly have EF mounts, and be priced lower than the EOS 5D Mark IV, thus rendering an EOS 6D Mark II obsolete.
We are pretty certain canon are working on a full frame mirrorless, we have seen patents for lenses and lens adaptors which all but prove that the concept is undergoing development, I struggle to believe however that it would serve as a replacement for the 6D Mark II. There will, for now at least always be shooters who favour a good OVF over an EVF, and until EVF technology reaches the next level I think Canon are more likely to release both cameras. Canon have yet to prove they can compete with the likes of Sony’s full frame mirrorless cameras, and until they have I think we will still see updates to their full frame DSLR range.
