Lowest I have seen, if anyone can beat it let me know.
Fantastic camera, although I am still debating between this and the 7D Mark ii. Quality this blows me away, full-frame for such price is tempting.

Suggestions would be awesome to direct on my next purchase.
7D Mark ii or 6D.

Canon Len's are pretty much compatible to each other.
Planning on using my 24-105L on it.
Definitely worth mentioning. Make sure you check if your current lens are compatible before purchase!

Depends on what lenses you buy I guess.

Likely to be a grey import. Also some reports online are not very favourable for them.

Also as a 6D owner I would recommend it over the 7D mk ii

@OP the 7D and the 6D are used for different types of photography generally, and no Canon EF-S lenses won't fit this, either will 3rd party lens built for a cropped sensor camera.
Too clear this up, if you want to shot sports, fast moving objects or wildlife (at distance) the 7D is the better choice.

If you want image quality and low light performance go for the 6D. Landscapes, portraits etc for the better detail. Yes both cameras will do both but each one leans towards different types of photography.

Ah thanks bud, why so though?
Have you used a 7d Mark ii and compared them. I do like a fast fps shutter and a All-cross type focus points.
Plus 60fps @ 1080.
I still don't know why people go for the 6D, I must of missing something.

Thank you, that definitely takes a lot of questions out of my head. (Thumbs up)
Another important factor, this does have WiFi, making uploads simple.

​no UK warranty and you SHOULD pay import tax (hence why it's so cheap) ...doubt anyone ever does though

Low light performance at high ISO is far and away better on the 6D, IQ also would be better on the 6D, better dynamic range as well. For me someone who shots portraits and landscapes the 6D would be my preferred choice, the 6D is a full frame and the 7D is a crop so the field of view at the same focal length is wider on the 6D.

* It is awesome in low-light given the larger full-frame sensor which has about 2.6x greater surface area than the APS-C sensor of the 7D (ii).
* Broader ISO coverage
* No focal length crop given full-frame sensor
* WiFi
* Lighter

I think what should sway you is what you intend to photograph. The 7D (ii) seems geared more towards sport/wildlife photography (faster burst rate, more AF tracking), but I went for the 6D and have not regretted it at all (and can take wildlife photos without any issue )
Seems a good price. They claim it's sent from the uk but "sourced" globally (so warranty might be an issue) and that delivery is 6 days. Great camera, I've got one and they do work with 3rd party lenses (but not canon ef-s), I use my cheap tamron 70-300 with no problems (until I can save up for a decent 70-200).
I got mine from DigitalRev for a similar price about a month ago and it arrived super fast (from Hong Kong within about 4 days!). I personally wasn't worried about the warranty issue due to the huge saving I was making.

Also pays to shop around though and see if John Lewis will price match - I did this before and got the 6D for £749 after summer cashback, then you're covered by their warranty as well as from Canon

Highly recommend buying canon lenses and cameras from authorised stockists. From personal experience canon will not honor the warranty for any unit sourced outside of the EU. If you want to save a bit of money buy from Amazon France or Germany. Legally they have to honor the warranty. Cashback can only be claimed from UK authorised stockists. A list of companies is available on the Canon cashback website.

I price matched against a different company (SLR Hut).
Decent price, but it's not unbelievable given the grey market deals around. Personally whilst the Canon cashback is on i'd be dedicating my time trying to get it for sub 950 ish with a price match.

6D vs 7Dii is a tough one. 6D is full frame, and has a great signal to noise ratio. But the 7D ii has some decent tech on board, and is a stellar performer. Personally I'd go 6D. But then maybe i've just forgotten how much I value the focussing system on my mk 1 7D... Either way the lenses will cost you a fortune if you compare apples with apples, i.e. decent f2.8 glass for APS-C with Full frame L glass. The difference being the L glass will probably retain it's value better.

I wouldn't blanket turn down grey imports as a few have, but I would consider what you will do "if" something goes wrong. In my opinion it would be worth spending some of the saving on decent accidental damage insurance for your kit. Equally, provided you buy from a stockist inside the UK, in "theory" you have a warranty with them, not Canon, so they can get it repaired wherever they like, including paying Canon. Obvious flaws to this arguement which you should consider is what if the company ceases to exist if your camera requires a repair or disputes the cover provided by their warranty. This is all worth considering given your personal financial situation, whether you can afford the bill if it breaks and you end up having no warranty and whether you depend on your kit for income etc. If you are happy to risk this, go for it, but do go into it with your eyes open. Personally I'm pro grey imports, provided the means by which they arrive in the UK is legal since large savings are to be had. I've looked at them and know people who have purchased from hdew in the past and my next camera will possibly be from there too.
6D is a full frame camera, not for filming really, no need to compare it to 7D as it's not full frame full stop. All the shortcomings you think of against 7D are not really a concern for serious photography users.
make sure it is the wi-fi version. Believe it or not 6D comes in two variants. Great camera though
