Take a look of Canon Upcoming DSLR and Mirrorless camera in 2017, We have seen some of the big announcements in the year 2016 which does include Canon 1DX Mark II, Canon 80D and finally during the Photokina event Canon also announced the Canon 5D Mark IV camera.
The Canon 6D Mark II camera was expected to arrive sometime in 2016 but the announcement was delayed since Sep 2016 date was reserved by 5D Mark IV. The delay in the announcement of 6D Mk II based on simple logic, Canon doesn’t want to lower down the sales of its 5D series by putting a affordable DPAF FF sensor solution in-front of photographers.
