Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera & EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens £999 Park Cameras

Found 15th Jul
The 6D may be getting on a bit now, but it's still a more than capable full frame body, with excellent high ISO performance even when compared to the latest breed of bodies.

Works out roughly £60 cheaper than I can find from grey importers (Park Cameras obviously being genuine UK stockist).

It's worth noting that the 24-105 is showing as £50 cashback when purchased with the 6D (here), however I don't know if this will be valid when purchasing as a kit (potentially bringing down to £949.

This camera is ancient. It was launched in the same year as the iphone 5.


If you can't take decent pictures with the 6D, then it isn't the camera that's the problem.

I see your point and I very well aware of the cliche. It's not the camera, it's the person behind the camera. This camera is such a trailblazer which obliterated Nikon and squashed Sony with a sensor renowned for its dynamic range. Canon should be commended for bringing out this masterpiece and 1k for this is a smashing deal. Thank you camerapricebuster for bringing this deal to us.

I sense a slight undertone of sarcasm here, but for the £1k price point, FF wise, the competition offer; a D610 with no lens (good luck with DR on that), or an A7 & 28-70 which feels signficantly older when seriously shooting than the 6D (even though it isn't).

No sarcasm. I am wedded to Canon for decades and my partiality might be a bit overboard. It is genuinely a great deal. Anything from Canon is IMHO

For this price range, what is better full frame? Genu8ne question as I’m moving from crop sensor and this is near the top end of my budget

A lightly used Nikon D750 on the bonkers cheap, if you can find a stonking deal on one - that's it.

If you're in no rush, you may be able to get a Sony A7II & 28-70 for £1k (I managed to get an A7II a few months ago for £800), but mirrorless isn't for everyone, and those deals don't come about very often.

So you’ll never need to upgrade a camera in your life from now on then!

Or you could look at the future and move away from canon...

There's 2x A9's & an A6500 right next to me - you don't need to preach to the converted here :-)

Regardless of preference, you'll struggle to get anything comparable for £1k.

A7ii

A7ii


Only via grey import, with a lens that loses 4mm on the wide end, and 35mm on the long end.

Whilst the A7II is a decent camera, it struggles to keep up with serious shooting. I know many pro’s using the 6D still, not the A7II
Can anyone tell me.... would this camera be massively better than a 70d? Obviously one is full frame and the other isn't but just ignore that fact. Cheers

Higher ISO/low light, and DoF with fast glass are the two places you’ll notice visible improvements
6D Mk II with 24-105 only £700 more from Panamoz (used myself, completely trustworthy).
Why would you buy SO old??

But for normal people many will get on just fine with an a7ii
In regards to the age of it....

I still use the 450D and I take great photos with it. It's dead old and lacks many features of newer models but I've honestly not got tired of it.





Yet.

Cameras aren't disposable however, unlike iPhones. I'm still using my camera from 10 years ago.
Terrible focus on this camera. Only centre point works kind of ok. The rest are useless. This is why i jumped ship to micro 4/3. Much better results with olympus and panasonic leica glass. Much sharper and far superior focus.

The only full frame camera i have is the 1Ds. It is only 11.1 megapixels and lacks all the mod cons, but it’s going strong after all these years. I cannot think of anything better TBH.

Debatable. I had no issues with my old 6D A - sure it has limitations, but it’s perfectly good enough. Go above ISO800 and the 6D will trash anything M43 can throw at it.

I had a friend who also bought 1 and had similar issues. Who also sold it. High iso is only advantage we felt. But let down by focusing. On micro four thirds i use f1.2 lenses so i can shoot wide open and not need to increase iso. Also focus is super fast wide open. On full frame you get much softer image with focus problems shooting at that f stop. And slow at focusing. Pros and cons in everything but depends on what the user requires.

If you're in the realm of £1000 I have seen 2nd hand 5D Mkiii's go for around £1250 which for not much more is a much better camera.
I have an 80D myself and can't wait until I have the cash set aside for a full frame upgrade but the main problem is that sensors and tech have come on so much in i the last 5 years(ish) that IMO it makes no sense to go from an albeit crop sensor 80D to a full frame 6D Mk1 or 5DMkII as the trade off for small gains image quality isn't worth it. I will wait until I can get a 5DIII for under a grand.

Panamoz stuff comes with Canon Warranty, Duty is paid, VAT paid (receipt included UK VAT and customs paperwork included shows duty paid. Or at least my camera & lenses came this way. Company has a reputation for amazing customer service. Look at the trust pilot reviews.The only correct thing you said was "EU stock" as it comes from HK. Mine was in my hands 36hrs after I ordered just FYI.

Or "only 70% more" for a 6year newer camera. Dont find much rapidly changing tech (TV for example) which is only 70% more expensive than a 6yr old model. But yes big price jump but if you cant afford the newer one, id personally buy a lower end but newer camera. TBH the 6DMKii is a disappointment in low light (or bright light where it struggles with DR).

I know Panamoz incredibly well - I've probably made 20+ purchases from them. Yours is a rarity if duty & VAT are correctly paid, because for 99%+ of orders, it isn't.

As far as the reputation and warranty goes - if they decide to close their doors one day, buyers are shafted. The warranty isn't a "Canon Warranty" - they give you authorisation to send to Canon, ask you to pay the bill, and reimburse you - what do you think would happen if they closed? And to be clear, they have closed their doors before.

Either way, it's still a substantial £750 more than this deal, and less than the 6D + 24-105 is selling for on Panamoz.

Fair enough. I was equally surprised by the customs label tbh. That seems legit, I did wonder if the vat on the receipt was just for show. Didn’t check their 6D price in fairness. For that camera I’m sure it’s a good deal (I didn’t vote) I was just saying just generally wouldn’t buy 6yr old tech.
6D is still a brilliant camera, I've used mine everyday for the past 5 years and it has never failed. It's been used for personal as well as professional video/stills work. Not had any issues with focus, but I admittedly only ever use the centre point on any of my cameras and manual focus for video (of course).

This is a great deal if you're moving from a crop sensor.
