This morning Amazon announced a HUGE discount on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR: a savings of $500 for the camera, (body only) at $1300, and a whopping $700 off the body plus a 24-105mm kit lens, which comes out to $1700 if you go with the 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM (non-L) or $2200 if you go with the 24-105mm f/4 L (the mk2 version)

(By the way, in our initial review of the 24-105mm non-L, we’ve found that it’s really good! Of course, you do get pro-class build quality with the L’s)

For any videographers looking to get an affordable fullf-frame camera with a fully articulated LCD screen and good overall quality (albeit 1080p) video, this is one of your only options; the other option, of course, being the Canon EOS RP, which is indeed basically the mirrorless version of the 6D DSLR series.

While we’d personally recommend that anyone who is looking for the most “future-proof” Canon full-frame system should indeed consider the RP, which is compatible with the new lineup of RF lenses, the 6D mk2 is compatible with literally over 100-million Canon EF lenses, making it an ultimate affordable full-frame option. (Oh, and you do get IS image stabilization with either of the two 24-105mm kit lens options, too, although you won’t get it with most prime lenses like you would with other *cough cough* mirrorless systems.)

At this link here, you can find all three options which are as follows:

Canon 6D mk2, body only = $1299
Canon 6D mk2 + Canon 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM = $1699
Canon 6D mk2 + Canon 24-105mm f/4 L IS II = $2199
