Canon had a bit of an identity crisis making the switch to full-frame mirrorless. The EOS R6 is the mirrorless camera that owners of the company's mid-level DSLRs have been holding out for. The camera feels like working with a DSLR, but offers the in-body stabilization and electronic viewfinder.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
Canon had a bit of an identity crisis making the switch to full-frame mirrorless. The R6 is the cheaper of the two newly-announced cameras, selling for about $2,500 for the body-only. It offers a lower resolution 20.1-megapixel sensor, a plastic body, and skipping some of the R5's biggest features.

Canon EOS R6 ($2,499, body only) is the more affordable of the company's pair of pro- and enthusiast-geared full-frame cameras. Its autofocus, capture speed, and IBIS system are just as good as the high-dollar R6. The camera ships with Canon's newest battery, the LP-E6NH.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
Canon's new EOS R6 is essentially a more affordable R5, albeit with a significantly lower sensor resolution and more limited (but still excellent) video recording capabilities. The updated sensor incorporates Canon's second-generation Dual Pixel autofocus architecture (called Dual Pixel CMOS AF II) This has improved phase-difference detection autofocusing in Live View on the R6.
