IF YOU'VE REACHED a stage in your photography journey when you feel the time is right to upgrade your camera to a model capable of handling serious use – potentially to make money from your photography – then enthusiast-level models like this Canon EOS 6D Mark II are the types to consider. They're made to a higher standard than entry-level models and offer a wider range of features, if not necessarily a higher resolution, yet lack the bulk and price tag of more expensive models.

As the market leader, it's no surprise to find Canon offer several models in this category: along with the EOS 6D Mark II are the 24.2-megapixel EOS 77D and EOS 80D, EOS 7D Mark II (20.2-megapixel) and – for the time at least – the original EOS 6D (also 20.2-megapixel). And let's not forget the EOS 5D series aimed at semi-pros/pros.

The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is a full-frame model that's suited to photographers ranging from ambitious newcomers to very experienced users. Despite its incredibly high specification, it's neat design layout ensures it's not too intimidating to use.
