|Canon EOS 6D|
In 2011 I compared the Canon 5D Mark II with the Nikon D700. Now comes along the Canon EOS 6D. Since it's release the 5D Mark II's price has fallen about $1000, but it's no bargain anymore now that the 6D is out.
I choose the 6D ($1,899) vs 5D Mark II ($1,999) because they are in the same price range, the former a new model with all of the hot-shop options and the Mark II an older, but higher end model, which was replaced aby the 5D Mark III last year.
Let's compare some of the specs.
The 6D is 20 MP while the 5D Mark II is 21 MP.
Both have full frame (24x35mm) sensors.
The 6D can shoot at 4.5 fps while the 5D Mark II at 3.9 fps.
Both have HD Movie modes.
The 6D has an 11-point autofocus while the 5D Mark II has 9-point.
Both have live view mode.
The 6D has built-in WiFi and GPS, the 5D Mark II does not.
Both have sensor-cleaning systems.
The 6D has an in-camera HDR mode the 5D Mark II does not.
The 6D has silent mode, the 5D Mark II does not.
Looks as if the 6D has a sizable edge in being the best bang for a buck because of the HDR capability, built-in WiFi, GPS and silent mode, not to mention that it shoots faster.
