Product Overview

Canon EOS M6 Mark II is a mirrorless camera in the Canon EF-M-mount system. Introduced by Canon in 2019, it comes with an APS-C sensor with 33 MP (6960 x 4640) resolution and a 2.36 million-dot EVF.

Canon M6 Mark II has a menu system that's slam-dunk easy to use. Sony A6100 has a built-in viewfinder and state-of-the-art autofocus and subject tracking. There are also over 50 E-mount lenses available, and Sony also makes full-frame cameras that use the same mount.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Built-in viewfinder
  • Fast autofocus
Cons
  • Lacks wide-aperture lenses
  • No built-in EVF

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
There is a grainy look, though, first apparent at ISO 800 and increasing steadily with the sensitivity. The sensor is very competitive with the 26MP chip used by the latest Fujifilm cameras through ISO 6400. Despite how much this camera can do, Canon has decided to hide some things, and limit others.

Pros
  • Superior image quality
  • Dual Pixel AF
  • 4K video
Cons
  • No native macro
  • No telephoto zoom

techradar[3]

Sentiment Score 71%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
Canon's M range of mirrorless APS-C cameras have been playing second-fiddle to its full-frame options lately. The EOS M6 Mark II represents a fairly dramatic overhaul of that camera. It gets a dramatic boost in resolution over the one in the M6, and the latest Digic 8 processing engine. 14fps shooting with continuous autofocus at full resolution is available. A 30fps raw burst mode is also available, if you can live with 'just' 18 megapixels.

Pros
  • High-resolution sensor
  • Impressive autofocus
Cons
  • Lacks a viewfinder
  • No 4K video recording

Reviewers from digitalpicture have found the following***:
Canon EOS M6 Mark II has twice-as-fast (with AF) continuous shooting frame rate. Eye AF is alone worth the price of the camera to those photographing people with any frequency. The M6 II was introduced in the same press release as the Canon EOS 90D DSLR.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Fast continuous shooting
  • Excellent battery life
Cons
  • Lack of advanced features

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following***:
The camera's video features are pretty standard but more than sufficient for most casual recording. Connecting to a smartphone via the Canon Camera Connection app is seamless. While Canon offers eight M-mount lenses, all but two are slow with a maximum aperture of f/3.5 or f/4.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Fast autofocus
  • Compact size
Cons
  • No built-in electronic viewfinder

, intuitive control system that’s ideal if you like to shoot in manual or fine-tune settings while you shoot. Like its predecessor, the EOS M6 Mark II does work with the 2.36m-dot EVF-DC2. This costs £187 when bought separately, though Canon will bundle this in the box when you buy the camera with the 15-45mm kit lens.

Pros
  • Superb image quality
  • Fast and responsive autofocus
  • Excellent build quality
Cons
  • No built-in viewfinder
  • No native EF-M lenses
