Curious to hear from R6 owners (not R6II, but the original R6), how long have you owned your original R6? Have you experienced any issues, failures, etc.?

Fall of '21 I believe is when i bought it. Not a single issue that I can recall. I shoot a lot of youth soccer for my daughter's team. Mostly ES mode. But also other general photography. Basically no video, other than to mess around with.

I've owned mine since October of 2020. It's been my main rig for the entirety of the time I have owned it, even though I added an R7 when it came out, and subsequently sold it a few months back. The only issue I've had was the R6 has locked up on me twice, but the last time was in October of 2021. In both instances, turned it off, removed and reinserted battery, turn it back on, back in business. But again, it's been more than 2yrs since the last instance.

I've owned it since release with 0 issues. I've mainly used EF lenses with a Canon brand basic adapter.

A little over 3 years for me.

I've had a lockup just once, easily remedied by battery re-insertion (to be accurate it was actually my wife that had the lockup, and notably she has a quite random approach to pushing buttons). I use it with the most basic Canon adapter and a range of EF & Sigma lenses. All my lenses play well with the R6.

The flash mount is still right & tight as it should be, but usually I only mount a lightweight controller on there rather than an actual flash so it's rarely had to endure any weight/leverage.

I owned two of them for over three years. I put nearly 600k frames on the two bodies. Occasionally they'll lock up and need a battery pull, but aside from that, no issues at all. It is by far the best camera I've ever owned and I think they are fantastic value at the current prices.

Are you using the newer version of the Canon LP-E6NH battery, or the older version (or after market, non-OEM batteries)?

I only ever used Canon Batteries... either the newer LP-E6NH or older LP-E6N batteries from previous Canon bodies.

I have read that the newer batteries are either a bit more powerful, or that they last a little longer than the older batteries. I'm wondering if you got the lock up issue while using the older batteries.

I had to go back in my memory banks to remember. I bought it here as a LNIB from the B&S Forum in December of 2020.

It's been the best camera I've ever used, and I have had zero instances of Gear Acquisition Syndrome to upgrade it.

I don't specifically recall if I ever had a lock-up. It's possible I did early on, but I know in the past couple years it's been rock solid.

I've owned mine since they were released and I've never had any issues with it. I've used it in extremes of cold and heat, in dry environments and in the wet. No issues. Great camera.

since early 2022 -- i know it was pretty late to get it before r6 ii was released. It hasn't caused any issue -- one thing I did notice was it started up slowly sometimes, but later i found out it was because of bad lexar SD card
