Reasons For Switching From Sony To Canon (who needs reasons?)

Cano Eos R5 Vs Sony A7r Iv

I do not know this guy but with this decision he seems very clever to me ;-)

Nick Page decided to switch from Sony to Canon. Smart move. Here is why he did it (emphasis mine).

Over this past year, I have learned that there is more to a camera than spec sheets and DXO Mark ratings. My Sony cameras have not been holding up to the abuse I put them through and it has left me wanting something more durable that can hold up to the abuse of a Landscape/Seascape photographer.
This is the story of why I switched back to Canon.
