I've been shooting a Canon R6 and R6II for about three years now. They are the best cameras I have ever owned and do just about everything I need. How about you?

This one is from a recent shoot for a local architect.

I'm a recent R6II owner. I had used a 5D3 and 7D2 for about the last decade and initially moved to mirrorless with an R7... then bought the R6II and wasn't using the R7 so now I'm a solo body owner for the first time in about 20 years. I'll try to post some shots along the way.

I had a similar lineup (5D3 & 7D2), along with a M50 for light weight travel. I picked up a R6 II earlier this year (upgraded from an EOS R), but also have an R10. So, I went from three bodies to two. I love the R6 II.

Here's my first attempt to post an image to the new forum -- a sunrise shot of Lake Superior from Marquette, Michigan.

That’s lovely.
 
I sold a 1DX when I got my R6 and a 5DIV when I added a R6II. The DSLR's were loosing value rapidly as people moved to mirrorless. Both R6 models have been great but the R6II is the one I take when I'm just using one body. The focus system is definately a step above.

That's my experience too, Bob. AF is definitely a step above the R6.
 
my progression was 40D-60D-80D-RP-R6 and the autofocus improved every time. I remember thinking to myself with R6 "I no longer have to worry about the focus", only to come here and read that the R6II is noticeably better, lol. I shoot soccer ... and my son's 13 ... the game gets faster and faster as they get older. Varsity Soccer is very fast. I guess it's good to know that upgrading will be worth it ... not today, though :)

The RD6 is an amazing camera. I just wanted the fastest AF I can afford for those lightning fast swallows in flight.
 
Should I upgrade my R6 to Mark II?

Here’s the problem. I only shoot wildlife on my African trips and looks like there probably won’t be any more of those. (too old).

So my R6 seems very capable for regular shooting. Am I missing something?

Not at all, Phil. The R6 is a brilliant camera. No need to spend more money on a mark II. Unless you want to start shooting swallows in flight of course...

Very recent upgrade from my old 6D having been convinced by the R7.

It's really scary looking at how rapidly the S/H value of EF lenses and bodies have dropped this year.
The 5DIV is still holding quite well because it's still a current model. But the 5DIII (which some still prefer) has literally nose dived! The same with some EF lenses. Earlier models are very cheap now if they have been replaced by a newer mkII or mkIII version. The EF 35mm f1.4 L comes to mind. As does my EF 70-200mm f2.8 LIS II. the Mk III just has some coating updates...but is optically the same. The used price for a mkII is half that of the mkIII!
 
Late to posting this part. As you can see AF is very good. I really wanted a 30mp R5. The R6 is 20mp and I was not sure about it. I should have thought about it a little more. I had seen so many great 1D images. The R62 may not be able to crop like the R5 but it can hold its own. For most web work you really don't need that many. That's the way I see it but it does mean I'm right.
