Sony Alpha A7RII vs Canon EOS 5Ds R comparison (ephotozine)

Sony a7rii eos 5ds r

ephotozine posted a comparison between the Canon EOS 5Ds R and the Sony Alpha a7RII. The two cameras belong to different product families (mirrorless vs DSLR) but have both high resolution sensors (Sony 42MP and Canon 50MP).

While I recommend you read the review to learn the whole story, have a look at an excerpt of the conclusion:

Whether the Sony Alpha A7R II is for you or not, depends on your shooting style, as well as whether you are currently invested in any system. If you wanted to switch to a smaller system, with more modern features, then the Sony Alpha A7R II certainly delivers an impressive range of features, as well as impressive image quality and noise performance. However, it would be particularly useful to check what lenses you would use with the Sony A7R II and whether they would deliver the results you wanted. If you have a number of Canon lenses, and are particularly familiar with Canon EOS 5D series cameras, then the 5DS R would make a great choice as the top of the range Canon EOS DSLR. Read the review.

I think the Alpha a7RII is somewhat overhyped, but it also is a feature-packed and innovative mirrorless camera.

Off brand: is the Sony A7rII the most over-hyped, over-priced camera of the year?

A7rii Issues

In the last weeks I got a lot of emails, comments etc all telling me the Sony Alpha a7RII was about to annihilate Canon (and Nikon, for that matter). So I decided to have a look on this camera that seems to get people excited beyond reason (according to some emails and comments).
