In 2017 i came to the forum for your advice and exactly Adalbert recommended M3 in his thread
https://www.photomacrography.net/forum/ ... highlight=
about M3 so i bought that and adore it till today.
Now i am back to see your opinion on my next upgrade (M6II) and what a coincidence, Adalbert here looking to upgrade to M6II too! Soo awesome!
I was waiting for electronic shutter from Canon for so long and almost lost the hope, while looking for Sony A6300/A6400/A6500. Finally Canon made it. I simply don`t like to change everything i have to Sony staff, you see.
So, M6II looks like a perfect camera to replace my old M3. But your concerns about AA now bother me too. Strange. I have never minded that filter on M3. Also i never had anything better(except 5DII) so maybe that's why )... I hope it is not much worth than it was on M3, which was perfectly fine to me.
Macrero, your example looks terrible though. I wonder which shutter speed it was? It looks like more than 1 second. In which case it is usual stuff for M3. You simply never shoot with Tv longer than 1 sec and you will be fine .
Another thing which is frustrating is IR absence on M6II, which i am used to now. I like the fact that there less wires attached but i can live with it. If i understood correct you need:
2.5MM SHUTTER CABLE https://www.cognisys-inc.com/store/sc-creb-01.html
...to work with that camera and StackShot 3X? Correct me if i am wrong.
Also... can it be replaced with this 10X cheaper alternative, for example:

And no, M3 has no "connectivity feature" support (and M6II too i expect) and i am fine with that too. I am using iPad instead. Less convenient but again - less wires is better to me.
Overall it looks like Canon M6 Mark II is going to be my next baby. Fingers crossed.
P.S. Almost forgot another M3 problem which can be frustrating is that it skips IR shots from time to time... like every 100th shot is skipped. Not a big dial but hopefully wired M6II will not have that problem in my life anymore.

the AA filter effect is obvious at actual pixel size. If you are ok with the blurring, there is no problem, of course.
The thing is that the AA-filtered image needs quite more sharpening than an AA-less one. You need to smart-sharpen detail and that's tricky.
Luminance noise is pretty high, even at base ISO (100). Though that's to be expected from such high-pixel-density sensor.
