The other major improvement you are getting with Canon 6D Mark II camera is more resolution. Canon 5D Mark III camera give 22 megapixels where as 6D mark II camera offers you 26 MP resolution that will be going to helpful to pick up more details of a given frame.

2. New Image Processor

The other one of the most noticeable improvement we can see is the introduction of digit 7 image processor inside the Canon 6D Mark II camera that will going to boost the overall speed as well as the image quality of the camera.

New processor directly means new image processing algorithm is also implemented inside the camera and And hence we are confident that low light performance of Canon 6D Mark II camera will going to be better compared to Canon 5D Mark III

The Phase AF module of Canon 6D Mark II is still inferior compared to Canon 5D Mark III camera. The Canon 5D Mark III features 65 point Phase AF system whereas the Canon 6D Mark II camera features 45 point AF system. But, at the same time we can say that 6D Mark II is using DPAF tech that will upscale the AF performance of the camera to next level.

4. Better Video

Canon 6D Mark II is limited to Full HD mode only, whereas the upcoming camera is rumored to feature Full HD video at 60fps. The camera will also offer fast AF support due to DPAF tech used inside the sensor, which will be relatively faster compared to the 5D Mark II camera.

5. Introduction of Vari-angle LCD

If all the rumors are true then for the first time Canon is about to bring a vari-angle tocuh display screen in a fullframe DSLR. Which will going to upscale the overall user experience to a next level.

Yes, WiFi and NFC is going to persent inside the upcoming Canon 6D Mark II which allow you to share your data and do remote shooting flawlessly with 6D Mk 2.

Price difference – Canon 5D Mark III available at $2.3K Amazon | B&H  |||| Canon 6D Mark II rumored to have $2K price tag

Conclusion

We have done a rumored specification comparison, more then 40% of data isn’t available right now. But, from the available data it is very clear that Canon 6D Mark II will have advance sensor, better image processor and new Phase AF module. BTW, the phase AF module isn’t as good as 5D Mk 3 AF module but that doesn’t actually matter when you have a DPAF sensor in your hand.
