Canon EOS RP vs Sony A7 II Comprehensive Comparison Review

Canon Eos Rp

Mirrorless Comparison posted an exhaustive Canon EOS RP vs Sony a7 II review.

From their conclusion:

The Canon EOS RP feels like a more well-rounded product for multiple reasons. It has a better design and is much more intuitive to use. The colours are natural and the high ISO performance is solid. You’ll find extra features such as Wifi, Bluetooth, Time-lapse, Focus Bracketing and tethering. If you’re looking for your first serious camera, or if you simply want something that is easy to use and gives you good quality for stills and video, the EOS RP is the right choice.

That being said, the Sony A7 mark II retains some advantages that shouldn’t be overlooked. If you’re interested in post processing, the RAW files have more flexibility when it comes to dynamic range. There is 5-axis stabilisation that works with any lens, including old manual focus lenses. There are fewer built-in extra features in comparison to the Canon, but you can add more via the Playmemories app store […]

The high ISO performance of the Canon EOS RP is nothing to be shamed of, as you can see in the pictures below:

Mirrorless Comparison’s review comes with plenty of test shots at different ISO settings, and lists pros and cons for each camera. Definitely worth a read.

Preliminary, Non Scientific Tests Suggest Canon’s New 32MP Sensor Improves On Dynamic Range

Canon Eos 90d Dynamic Range

It seems Canon’s claim they managed to improve dynamic range while raising the resolution of their latest APS-C sensor is not wrong.

Fred Miranda forum user cgarcia did some tests with sample images from DPReview to compare dynamic range figures of the new Canon EOS 90D (32MP) and the Canon EOS 80D (24MP).

Canon EOS 90D – ISO 100:

  • DR at 32MP: 12.468
  • DR at 8MP: 13.480 (+1.012)
  • read noise: 2.80125

Canon EOS 80D – ISO 100:

  • DR at 24MP: 12.435 EV
  • DR at 8MP: 13.2343 (+0.7993)
  • read noise: 2.86601

As you can see, there is a small improvement over the EOS 80D.

cgarcia also learned that the dynamic range improves much more at higher ISO settings (compared to the EOS 80D). The image below shows that a higher ISO settings the DR of the EOS 90D improves continously.

These figures look pretty good. However, keep in mind this is a non scientific test. To be sure we have to wait for further analysis of the performance of Canon’s new 32MP APS-C sensor. Never the less, it appears Canon managed to deliver a quite amazing image sensor.

Canon’s new 32MP APS-C sensor is featured on the brand new Canon EOS 90D and Canon EOS M6 Mark II.
