The Bottom Line The photo quality you get from the EOS 6D makes it well worth the upgrade over a consumer APS-C model, but between this and comparable or higher-end models it's a less obvious choice. An overall excellent camera, but one that fails to capture the best-in-class prize for image quality. An excellent midrange dSLR, the Canon EOS 7D delivers for the money. While it's not a no-brainer upgrade over the Mark II, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is worth the price premium if better performance and configurability matter to you.
