Canon’s M6 Mark II is a camera with two different faces. On the plus side, it delivers 14 fps burst shooting speeds, beating all of its rival products. It also has fast autofocus with eye- and face-detection that’s good, though not quite up to Sony’s level. It’s the first Canon mirrorless camera with full-sensor 4K video. And, with a 32-megapixel sensor, it’s the highest-resolution APS-C camera yet. The problem is that Canon’s EOS-M lenses aren’t sharp enough to handle that resolution, and while it’s billed as a photographer’s camera, it doesn’t have a built-in EVF like the competition. Also, the 4K video is softer than on other cameras. It delivers well on the speed and image quality, but if you don’t need that, you’d be better off with Fujifilm’s more versatile X-T30.
