Canon 90D vs Canon EOS M6 Mark II « NEW CAMERA

A quick comparison between the Canon 90D vs Canon EOS M6 Mark II. Let’s see what minor difference they have and which camera you should buy.

1. Design and functionality

Body design – DSLR lovers will sure fall in love with Canon 90D Camera, Canon EOS M6 Mark II camera features bigger handgrip with ultra compact body design.

Design wise the Canon EOS M6 Mark II is an excellent solution for those who love to have a bit more compact system in their hand and it will easily fit into your jacket pocket. At the same time the EOS M6 Mark II with kit lens will remain unnoticed in crowded situation due to its nature of design and that’s what most of the street shooter,  travel shooter or a VIdeo Vlogger needs.

Canon 90D is a weather sealed camera whereas the Canon EOS M6 Mark II  missing weather sealing.

I will pick Canon 90D camera for travel purpose since none of us always prepared for bad weather. If we have weather sealed camera as well as lens with us, it will be sure a great advantage, having a weather sealed camera and lens with you will enhance your working capability and your range.

2. Lenses Compatibility

Canon 90D is a clear winner, but at the same time we can use all those EF and EF-S Mount lenses with the help of EF to EF-M adapter.

So, if you are a Hybrid shooter or vlogger than you should go with Canon EOS M6 Mark II camera, since you are getting uncropped 4K Video recording mode with DPAF support.

3. Image quality

About the sensor: specification it is very clear that both camera features same 32 megapixel dual pixel autofocus CMOS sensor. But, we all know that 32 megapixel is a super high resolution for aps-c sensor platform and it would be more better in canon used BSI CMOS technology for the same.

Sensor Canon 90D Canon EOS M6 Mark II
Resolution Canon 32.5 MP Canon 32.5 MP
AF points on sensor  5481 zones 5481 zones

We have to wait to know the actual values of the Dynamic range of both the camera. But as we have from the specs. The Standard ISO range as well as the expandable ISO range of both the camera is exactly the same.


Both camera features DPAF of 3rd generation and eye AF tracking backed by 5k+ AF zones. Canon 90D is a DSLR camera and do carry a 45point Phase AF module with it and its active only when you are using viewfinder.

5. ISO Sensitivity

ISO (Still) Canon 90D Canon EOS M6 Mark II
Standard 100-25600 100-25600
Expandable 100-51200 100-51200
Standard (Movie) 100-12800 100-12800
Expandable (Movie) 100-12800 100-12800

Canon isn’t using BSI Tech, and due to that we do believe that Camera will have limited low light performance due to super high resolution. However, we will wait for test results and update you soon.

6. Continuous Shooting

Despite of having the same sensor and digic 8 image processor, Canon 90D DSLR camera limited to 11 FPS with AF whereas Canon EOS M6 Mark II Can shoot upto 14 FPS with AF.
