Canon EOS R6 vs Sony a7 III Full Comparison Review (2 parts: photography and video)

Canon Eos R6 Vs Sony α7 III

Here is a very exhaustive Canon EOS R6 vs Sony a7 III review. The review comes as two reviews: one is all about photography and one all about video.

Coming from Mathieu Gasquet, the two excellent Canon EOS R6 vs Sony a7 III reviews below discuss every possible aspect of both cameras, with plenty of comparison, sample images, and more. There is also a long and equally complete written review you might want to check.

From his conclusion:

The autofocus system and burst speeds are impressive, and Canon has out-classed Sony in its own territory with features like Animal Detection. The image quality is on par, if not slightly better, albeit with 20% less resolution. The image stabilisation is also superior (although not as much as the official specifications suggest) and I personally prefer the ergonomics, button layout and dials response on the EOS body.

As nice as the R6 sounds, there are some strong points in favour of the A7 III to keep in mind. It may not have 4K/60p or 10-bit internal recording for video, but it doesn’t suffer from overheating as severely as the Canon. There is a plethora of native lenses to choose between for the E-mount system, not just from Sony but also third-party brands, and that also means a better choice of affordable glass. Last but not least, the Sony is less expensive.

And here are the two video reviews. Enjoy.

Canon EOS R6 Review – Buried Under The Competition?

Canon EOS R6 Review Camera Sales

Here is a Canon EOS R6 review. It’s true that the EOS R6 gets less attention than its more talked sibling, the EOS R5. But is it also buried under the competition?

That’s what the excellent review by YCImaging seems to suggest. For sure the EOS R6 flies a bit under the radar. I think it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. There are many features that the R6 shares with the EOS R5, a class leading autofocus system for instance, and the R6 has an imaging sensor derived not less than from the flagship EOS-1D X Mark III. Enough said, here comes the video review.

Canon EOS R6 DxOMarked, Scores One Point Less Than EOS 5D IV and EOS-1D X III

Canon Eos R6 Manual

The Canon EOS R6 underwent DxOMark’s sensor benchmarks, and gets a score like the EOS-1D X Mark III and EOS 5D Mark IV (both 91).

The Canon EOS R6 scored 90 at DxOMark’s test. The Canon EOS R6 sensor is based on the imaging sensor featured in the EOS-1D X Mark III, and it shows its heritage. The sensor is also behind Sony’s.

From DxOMark’s conclusion:

Canon’s decision to launch the EOS R6 alongside the more intriguing EOS R5 may have kept the former out of the limelight somewhat, but it’s a highly capable camera with competitive specifications. Its body stabilization, super-fast burst rates, solid video specs, and useful dual-pixel AF II all add up to a very well-rounded offering.

While the 20 MP sensor may seem an odd choice, this is a variant of the one found in the flagship EOS-1D X Mark III, and the results are practically identical. It performs well across the board with excellent dynamic range at all ISOs. Add to that the sensor’s good color and low noise, and the Canon EOS R6 looks set to be a firm favorite among a wide range of photographers who work across many different genres.

Canon EOS R6 Review (fabulous autofocus system, D. Abbott)

Canon Eos R6 Review

Here is a Canon EOS R6 review. More Canon EOS R6 reviews are listed here.

Dustin Abbott posted his full Canon EOS R6 review. As usual with his reviews, it comes with a huge set of sample pictures, comparison charts, ISO tests, differences and things in common with the EOS R5, and all the information you might want to know. This is the review I would look for if I was looking to get the EOS R6.

Some excerpts from the review:

[…] the Canon EOS R6 is also a very compelling model that leverages a lot of the technological strengths both of the Canon 1Dx MKIII and the EOS R5 into a fairly complete package at a much lower price point. 

[…] the choice to utilize the very competent 20.1MP sensor from the 1Dx MK III was a sound one. I vastly prefer it to the 24MP one found on the RP. The sensor showed a superior high ISO performance, good dynamic range, and, also always, very pleasing Canon colors.

[…] The IBIS system works well, the ergonomics are excellent, but while these are both superior to the competition, the true greatest advantage has to be in the fabulous autofocus system and deep buffers.  This is a sporting camera to rival the a9’s and 1D’s of the world in many ways, capable of brilliantly tracking and capturing fast action.
