In Reply to: iirc, 6D sales figures were disappointing for Canon, so perhaps a 6D II is not high on their list posted by larryV on 2017-01-11 19:19:41

Yeah, I dunno, I think the 6D was initially a slow seller in 2013 but it's become Canon's most popular FF camera in 2015-2017. I have personally owned 3 of them!

I think the 6D is simply just a "good enough camera" in that it has most of what a still photographer uses without a lot of the more advanced features most people aren't going to use. I like to think of it as a 5D Mark II with an updated sensor.

I've grudgingly accepted the subjective ways that the 6D is not as nice as a 5D2 or 5D3 for the ways it is objectively better than the 5D2 and equal to the 5D3. I don't need the servo AF features of the 5D3 either so why pay for them?
