After almost 5 years since the original 6D, Canon recently launched one of the most hotly anticipated updates, the 6D Mark II. While it’s packed with features that make it a huge jump from its predecessors, photography enthusiasts are noting one big feature that’s missing in the newer version: 4K video.

As fstoppers noted, the 6D Mark II seems to be suffering from an identity crisis. Among other features, the full-frame camera boasts a 26.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, an autofocus system featuring 45 AF points, and a fully articulating screen. With these, the camera seems poised to compete with other models in the realm of video – but its features in that department are still lacking. Meanwhile, other still cameras with similar features come much cheaper than the 6D Mark II.

In a fast-paced technological world, innovations are pretty much expected as manufacturers race to deliver the best products out to the market. With its high price point at $1,999, the 6D Mark II is riding on a high wave of expectations – but having no 4K video, among other things, just doesn’t match those expectations.
