Remember cameras no matter how old they are, always as good as they ever were.  The 5D2 is no slouch then or now. 10K is nothing for a 5D2.


I have both 5DMII and 6D. I would take 6D over 5DMII anytime. Better dynamic range, better high ISO noise, faster frame rate, GPS + Wifi, better low light focus & autofocus. I took a lot of dim-lit events and the 6D could focus in many instances that the 5DMII could not.

"I found a very cheap (in my opinion) 5d2 for 350$ CAD with only 10k shutter count."

 

Only 10k on the shutter???  I think that price is too cheap, too.  Should that be 100K?  No matter the shutter count, which I have to question for all of the bodies, that price is way too low for a working 5D2.  Great price for a parts camera, though.

You can get a Rebel that does that too. If you like less pro built cameras, a plastic Rebel would do that for you too.  It doesn't for me. Any 5 series every time over any 6 series. If you are good with your 6D, I am all in for you.
