Canon EOS 5D Mark IV high ISO performance better than Nikon D810 and Sony a7R II

EOS 5d Mark iv

Yesterday DPReview added the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV to their Studio Scene Comparison Tool.

The folks over at Digicame-Info made a high ISO performance comparison between the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, the Nikon D810 and the Sony Alpha a7RII. Well, the EOS 5D Mark IV is clearly ahead the competition. See the picture above or try it out by yourself.  You can see the ISO performance at ISO 25600 of the EOS 5D Mark IV is clearly better than the Nikon D810 and also has an edge over the Sony a7R II.

Canon’s new sensor design (with ADC on chip) is showing its advantages. Kudos Canon!

Is the Sony A7RII ready for the pros? Matt Granger tries to answer

Matt Granger on YouTube posted a video where he tries to answer the question if the Sony Alpha a7RII is made for professional photographers. The answer is long, is of the kind “it depends”, and tends toward a “not really”. Matt Granger is definitely a pro-Sony reviewer.

Can we say that Canon/Nikon make cameras for photographers, and that Sony makes cameras for engineers? As much as I like the innovative technology featured on Sony’s a7-series full-frame mirrorless cameras, I still have a hard time to see the Sony a7RII as a “real camera”. I can not see the strong commitment to photograhy I feel with other brands. Fuji for instance, with their excellent X-T10 and X-T1, made (mirrorless) gear really aimed at photographers. Just my 2 cents.

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.
