The Canon EOS 6D is the smallest and lightest full frame sensor format Canon DSLR camera ever (as of review time). The image quality benefits of Canon's full frame CMOS sensors are big, while the footprint of the 6D remains small - as does the relative impact on your wallet. The image quality the 6D delivers is impressive.Read more

Just Posted: Our in-depth review of the Canon EOS 6D.

Is the 6D the budget-friendly full-frame DSLR that Canon enthusiasts have been waiting for? Click the links below to read our 25-page review.Read more
