You could get it for even less last Thanksgiving if you sold the free printer and battery grip it came with. If you did that, you could get one for $800.

It's an OK camera if you're an amateur, and this is an OK deal.

But it is cheap for a reason:

Sadly, it has a 7-8 year old sensor. The dynamic range is quite poor. The low light performance is below that of the the original 6D that came out 7-8 years ago. The video is also poor, softer than the 6D's.

I would not be surprised if it there were an even better deal on it come Black Friday.

Read this for further details on Canon holiday deals:

The short of it is, there will likely be a better deal on Canon gear, and it will be short-lived (24 hours).

Thank you for that! I have a T4I and I hate the low ISO performance. That is why I was considering this. Is there a crop Canon that has good low light ISO performance? Do I need to go FF for that? I would like better dynamic range as well.

Yea, it is hard to find the negative reviews, but there are few reviews that mention the 6d2's video softnesss. I had the m50, and yep the videos were mush. What are your opinions on the RP?

You really need to go FF for significant low light performance. But (not knowing what you have) you can make vast improvements with your current camera by upgrading to faster lenses (i.e. constant aperture of at least f/4 or ideally f/2.8) which are the best investments you can make in gear since they will outlast several camera bodies. I'm in a similar situation. I previously started with a T3i several years ago then upgraded to a 70d which I love for everything except low light. I'm currently debating between risking $500 on a lightly used 6d being sold locally vs a new 6d mkii for roughly double. It's a tough call to sacrifice many features of the 70d vs a much higher spend on the newer camera that despite criticism, I know will outperform the 70d. I can't believe the recent price drops on the mkii which is likely due to poor sales & maybe mkiii release in '20 or '21.
In your case, you may need to also consider $ of lenses too if you only have EF-S lenses as they won't work on FF.

6D Mark II got a lot of criticism for the technology it offered at its initial launch price of ~$2000. The price set expectations the camera couldn't meet. Quickly Canon lowered the price and it stayed in the $1600 range for quite a while before dropping to $1200. At <$1000 it's a steal of a camera.

Depending on what kind of photography you're into, there's a lot of features the 6D Mark II offers over the 6D. The articulating touch screen is super handy, 45 point AF system and faster FPS are handy for sports/wildlife photography. Overall IQ is more based on your lenses than the body itself. The difference in megapixel between the two bodies is nearly imperceptible.
