Youtube Mads Peter Iversen tested the Canon EOS 5Ds vs the Sony a7R III to test which camera produces sharper results.
In this video, I compare the sharpness between the 50 megapixels flagship Canon EOS 5Ds and the 42,4 megapixels Sony a7r3 (a7r III). As I own both cameras I was curious to see which came out on top in regard to sharpness. I was actually surprised by the result as there is next to nearly no difference! It is hard to conclude which is the best high megapixel camera. It is important to notice this is the Canon 5Ds, not the Canon 5Dsr (the 5Dsr is supposed to be sharper as it doesn’t have an anti-aliasing filter).
Nikon might be set to launch a full frame mirrorless camera with a price below $1,000.
That’s what Japanese news site Nikkei reports (machine translated):
Nikon will introduce a new mid-price mirrorless camera product in fiscal 2019. The same interchangeable lens can be used in the product that corresponds to a sister model such as the high-end model “Z7” launched by the company in the autumn of 2006. It is expected that the price will be in the 100,000 yen range, which is easier for the general consumer to pick up than the leading 200,000 to 400,000 yen model. The aim is to develop the demand of users other than existing enthusiasts.
100,000 Yen are roughly $900. That would be a killer price for a full frame mirrorless camera. The only real entry-level FF mirrorless camera currently on the market, the Canon EOS RP, is priced $1,299.
A full frame MILC at $900 would take the market by storm. What do you think?
There isn’t a huge pool of f/1.2 50mm lens to compare the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM against, and most of its competitors have a maximum aperture of f/1.4 or f/1.8. If optimum image quality is your major concern, then the Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM A makes for a better choice, although it can’t be mounted directly on Canon’s mirrorless cameras. However, if you need the extra 1/3-stop of light, then the RF lens makes a good solid proposition that is a step up from the older Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM.
