Canon today launched EOS 6D Mark II full-frame DSLR. It was announced last month and has a 26.2MP Full-frame CMOS Sensor, has DIGIC 7 Image Processor and is dust and water-resistant. Canon says that it has several enhancements over its predecessor, but it still has maximum 1080p video recording.
It has 7560 pixel RGB+IR metering sensor and a colour detection AF that enables consistent and accurate exposure in various lighting conditions. It automatically detects skin tones and prioritizes focus on human subjects within the frame. With the addition of the lens aberration correction settings, the EOS 6D Mark II automatically detects the lens paired, and corrects distortion and diffraction at the time of shooting.
