Canon will not release the EOS 6D replacement in 2016, as the company is planning to launch the EOS 6D Mark II DSLR sometime next year.
For the longest time, it was believed that Canon will introduce a successor to the EOS 6D sometime before Photokina 2016. However, the manufacturer has already launched the EOS 1D X Mark II in 2016, while the EOS 5D Mark IV is on its way soon, so it is unlikely that it will announce three full-frame DSLRs within the same year.
Trusted sources have now decided to leak some more Canon EOS 6D Mark II rumors. They are saying that the camera will become available in the first part of 2017, while the specs list is not final, yet.
New Canon EOS 6D Mark II rumors give hints regarding DSLR’s release date
There have been a lot of conflicting reports about everything related to the 6D Mark II since the first gossip talks about the device appeared online. The announcement and release dates, the sensor, the form factor, and its placement on the market have all been mentioned by multiple parties, but most of them have probably been wrong.
As usual, Canon is testing multiple versions of the same DSLR, in order to see which one would best fit costumers’ needs. The source, who has been right in the past, says that the image sensor will not be used in another cameras, similar to its predecessor.
For now, the megapixel count has not been fixed, while the remainder of the specs list remains unknown. It is still too early to speak about this because the camera will only be released in the first part of 2017. We are expecting the announcement event to also occur next year, so this is the right time to forget everything you thought you knew about the 6D’s successor.
Another Canon EOS DSLR nameplate is coming in 2017
Moving past the EOS 6D Mark II rumors, it seems like Canon is planning to add another DSLR series to its EOS line-up. The naming scheme will be different from what we are used to, but we have heard that the device will be unveiled in 2017.
