Having shot with the Canon 6D for a week now, I have been absolutely flooded with questions about it, and the most common one I am hearing is this "Which is better, the 6D or the 5Dii?" The Canon 6D, as of this recording, is about $300 more than the 5Dii and many of my subscribers want to know if the extra cost is worth it. The short answer is absolutely. YES! In fact, I would go so far as to say if you are choosing between these 2 cameras, it would be a serious mistake to get the 5Dii. This is coming from someone who has owned a 5Dii for 4 years. The new features in performance of the Canon 6D make a much better overall camera. This video is my overview and comparison of the 2, including a moire & low light ISO video test.

Let me know if you guys have any questions about the 2 in the comments below, or if there are any other comparisons you would like to see. Thanks for watching & for your support!

UPDATE: 6D does not have the same auto video focus tracking as the T4i & Canon M. They have very similar names but the follow tracking option cannot be engaged on the 6D. There IS face detection in both video & photo, but not like the T4i & M. -MM
