The auto focus of this lens is really very fast and the image quality of this lens delivers excellent amount of details even when used with Canon 5ds R camera, of course it will do justice with Canon 6D Mark II.  we highly recommend you to get this lens.

I do understand that in some specific part of the world the Sigma art lenses are unavailable ( reach of Sigma is still Limited), For those I will recommend you to get Canon standard lenses they have no option.

Other options

Sigma 50mm F1.4 ART lens is also an good option against the Canon 50mm F2.L lens, while comparing the two lens i personally found that Canon 85mm F1.2L bokeh is more silky and smooth whereas the Sigma 50mm F1.4 is bit more sharp.

This lens utilizes Ring type USM and STM mechanism that helps in accurate and silent autofocusing while recording still a shooting video. We recommend this lens if you are a interested in video as well as still work under budget.

Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens – This is one of the best zoom lenses Canon have a nice Arsenal,  the 100 to 400 MM L series lens features excellent optics and very effective image stabilization system inside it with 3 different mode. The 100 – 400 MM lens is costly but the result you get his outstanding. the background blur bokeh  of this lens is just best of its class of lenses.

The lens sharpness is excellent (better than Canon Non L lenses) and bokeh is really beautiful. But at the same we say that Canon when compared to Canon 100-400mm, the Canon 100-400mm L lens bit more sharp and creates eye pleasing bokeh. But, it will cost you $2K.

Sensor

Canon 6D mark 2 features newly developed 26.2 megapixel sensor has the Canon 5D Mark 4 uses 30.4 megapixel full frame sensor

Now let’s talk about the technology used inside for the camera.  Both camera utilizes dual pixel CMOS autofocusing Technology,  hence technically the sensors are same.  you are getting only 4 megapixel difference in both the camera nothing else, if you compare  only sensor

ISO Range

The ISO range of Canon 5D Mark 4 camera starts from 50 to 102400 and on the other side we have Canon 6D Mark II and its Max ISO range is exactly same as of Canon 5D Mark IV.  But, we have some slight difference in standard ISO range the Canon 6D Mark II offers standard ISO range of 40000,  where is the Canon 5D Mark IV even limited to 32000.

AF System

Auto focusing system of the camera Canon 5D Mark 4  and 6D mark 2 camera features  dual auto focusing system,  both the system uses Phase module when viewfinder of DSLRs are active and when live view mode and video recording is on then both the camera uses sensor based AF. Canon Dualpixel CMOS AF sensor Will give you blazing fast auto focusing speed.

 Which AF system is inferior or which one is superior compared to other ?  both Canon 6D mark 2 camera and 5D Mark 4 dual pixel CMOS autofocusing Technology. so, the sensor based Auto-focusing system of both the camera is exactly same.  While talking about the Phase AF module of both camera then Canon 5D Mark 4 is more advance and features a 61 point Auto focusing system whereas the Canon 6D mark 2 camera features 45 point based model which is inferior compared to the 5D Mark IV .

Shutter

Video

Video (Full HD vs 4K) Canon 6D Mark II camera remains limited to Full HD video mode. Whereas, the canon 5D Mark IV camera can capture 4K video, so if you shoot video as well as images then you can get the 5D Mk IV. Yes. the one feature 5D MK4 is missing is video stabilization (electronic).which the 6D Mk 2 already have.

Display

The display of Canon 6D Mark II camera features vari-angle display touch screen. Canon 5D Mark IV camera features bit large ( 3.0” vs 3.2”) fixed screen. BTW, the resolution of Canon 5D mark IV is high compared to 6D II.

Although the sensor and the image processor of Canon 6D mark 2 camera is advanced compared to 5D Mark III but the ISO range of both the camera is exactly same.  the base ISO of both the camera is ISO 50 and the max (Expendable) ISO range is 102400.

Image processor

the image processor of the camera is quite different,  the Canon 6D mark 2 camera features  better image processor  compare to the 5D Mark 3 camera.  Canon 5D Mark 3 camera is using DIGIC 5+ Image Processor  where are the 60 Mark II is using DIGIC 7  image processor.  image processor is responsible for overall speed of the camera and not only overall speed

Phase AF Module

DSLRs use Phase AF module only when a photographer use viewfinder for composing shots. When a photographer switch to Live view or video mode then sensor based AF system gets activated. Now the Canon 5D mark III us using traditional sensor hence you have to deal with contrast detect AF system whereas the Canon 6D Mark II camera comes with DPAF sensor. So, the overall AF system of the Canon 6D Mk II is better compared to 5D3.

ISO Range

The standard ISO range of both the camera is bit different. The Canon 5D Mark III standard ISO range remains limited to 25600 where is the standard ISO range of Canon 6D Mark II is 40000. So, we do expect better low light performance of the camera due to high standard ISO range.

Continuous shooting speed

The continuous shooting speed of the Canon 6D Mark II camera is really impressive. When you are going to compare it with a 5 year old Canon 5D Mark 3 camera you will notice only very slight difference. The 6D Mk II features 6.5 fps and 5D3 have 6, but you also have to look at the resolution of Canon 6D Mark II which is approx 4 megapixel more compared to the Canon 5D Mark III.

Video

We can notice a minor improvement in the video section of Canon 6D mark 2 camera.  canon 6D mark 2 camera can capture full HD videos @ 60 frames per second  whereas the Canon 5D Mark 2 camera  limited to 30fps.

Video AF

Video AF is key thing to discuss here, With the help of dual pixel CMOS auto focusing system the users get blazing fast auto focusing while recording video. But Canon 5D Mark 3 camera doesn’t have any hybrid autofocus in system hence users have no other option then using either contrast detect system of the camera.

Display

We have already seen the advantage of canon vari-angle display screen in apsc DSLR,  now for the first time Canon introduces vari-angle display in its full frame camera. So, there is no doubt that that display screen of current Canon 6D mark 2 camera is better compared to 5D Mark III by the way both camera features touch screen display

Conclusion

We recommend you to get Canon 6D Mark II camera, since it features better sensor with DPAF, more standard ISO range and enhanced Video AF.

The Canon 6D Mark II is a new arrival and its core specification won’t allow you to think twice, it is a excellent camera a big upgrade over its predecessor.

The sensor of Canon

Canon 6D was announced on September 17 2012,  and after 4 + years of gap  Canon announced its successor.

The new sensor inside the Canon 6D mark II camera features Dual pixel CMOS Technology,  Hence the overall autofocusing is speed of the camera system increases dramatically compared to its predecessor.  The dual pixel CMOS your system is specifically gets activated while shooting in live OR recording a video.

The camera also shows 6 megapixel bump in the resolution compared to its predecessor, that will sure grab more details compared to 6D (Samples Images) . Canon 6D mark 2 camera is a perfect choice for  Amateur as well as professional photographers.

Introduction of DPAF

We should talk say about the auto focusing system of the camera. Canon 6D Mark II incorporates dual pixel CMOS AF Technology as well as a dedicated 45 point phase AF Module inside the camera

Keep in mind at the AF system of DSLR in canon are separated into different zones,  The phase of AF systems are activated only when a photographer is using viewfinder of the camera and the dual pixel CMOS a system gets activated when a photographer captures still or video while using Liveview / display of the camera.

In traditional DSLR such as Canon 6D when a photographer switches to live view mode for shooting a still are creating a video. The contrast detect auto focusing system gets activated which is slow and sluggish. Whereas the new 6D mark 2 camera features hybrid AF system will sure going to help photographers to upgrade their experience to next level with a blazing fast auto focusing speed, thanks DPAF FF sensor inside it.

Fast shooting speed

Canon 6D mark 2 camera features 6.5 frames per second of continuous shooting speed @ of 26 megapixels. You can see a big improvement over its predecessor,  Canon 6D was able to deliver 4.5 frames per second at the rate of 20 megapixels only.

Vari-Angle Display Screen

One of the big improvement that we will going to witness in the next series of 6D camera is the introduction of Vari – angle display screen in a Canon full frame DSLR first time ever.

Canon 6D mark 2 camera not only coming with very angle display screen it is also coming with touch display,  the large 3 inch touch screen will going to help users to compose the best shot and select AF points with touch of an finger.

Introduction of built in Wi-Fi

Canon 6D Mark II camera also have a special features that the current generation of users usually  can’t live without.  The Canon 6D mark 2 camera Does have Wi-Fi built in,  whereas the predecessor was able to access Wi-Fi only through optional adapter.

with the introduction of Wi-Fi inside the Canon 6D mark 2 camera canon users can shoot wirelessly   or can share their images without any physical pain.

Verdict:

We recommend you to get the Canon 6D Mark II, since it features better AF system new display and more.
