We list the 10 main differences and suggest you visit Mirrorless Comparison to get the entire picture. They cover anything from ergonomics to image quality and ISO performance, not to mention the many sample pictures. You might also watch the video-review at the end of the post.

The 10 Main Differences in a Nutshell

  1. Design: the A6600 is smaller and lighter, but the R7 has a more comfortable grip and a better button layout (except for the hybrid dial/joystick solution that I personally don’t like).
  2. Viewfinder / LCD: similar specs, but different position for the EVFs. The LCD monitor on the Canon offers better resolution and more touch capabilities. That of the Sony tilts up 180˚ but is not multi-angle.
  3. Cards and Battery: two slots for the R7 (UHS-II), one for the A6600 (UHS-I). Battery life is similar, but the Sony can last for a little longer.
  4. Image Quality: more resolution on the R7 sensor, but also more noise at high ISO, and when opening the shadows in post. I prefer the colours on the Canon for the most part.
  5. Autofocus: the R7 is more advanced and can recognise a larger variety of subjects. Eye AF for humans is more reliable and works for video on the Canon. That said, the A6600 does well when given a challenge (birds in flight).
  6. Drive Speed: The R7 has a superior continuous shooting speed of 30fps, but it comes with severe rolling shutter. With the mechanical mode, you can work at 15fps. The Sony maxes out at 11fps. Neither excels in terms of their buffer capabilities.
  7. Image Stabilisation: you can push the R7 further when it comes to hand-held still photos, and it also delivers smoother results for movie recording.
  8. Video: both cameras offer great quality in 4K up to 30p. The R7 goes up to 60p, but with a choice of reduced sharpness, or a heavy 1.8x sensor crop. The Canon can record 10-bit 4:2:2 internally, whereas the Sony has more advanced settings to fine-tune the image.
  9. Extra Features: The R7 packs a few more functionalities, like focus bracketing and focus stacking, as well as the Pre-Shooting mode.
  10. Price and Lenses: The A6600 is less expensive, but not by much, unless you find a special offer. The Sony E-mount system is vaster and more complete (if we look at native lenses).

Our friends at Mirrorless Comparison posted a neat Canon EOS R7 vs EOS R6 comparison review. From their conclusion:

[…] as soon as you start to push the R7 to its highest performance, there are important limitations to be aware of.

The drive speed of 30fps sounds great, but you have to deal with a small buffer and invasive rolling shutter (which is valid for video too). The RAW Burst setting gives you the pre-shooting mode, but the limited workflow built around it can be frustrating.

From an ergonomics point of view, the design is very good except for that large wheel located around the AF joystick, which you need to lock if you don’t want your AF point to jump all over the place.

What about the R6? Well, this one is easy. I was already well acquainted with it before the R7 arrived. It is the camera that finally put Canon amongst the main players on the mirrorless market (along with the R5).

Canon EOS R7 Review (a great wildlife and sports camera)

Canon Eos R7 Review

The Canon EOS R7 appears to be rather popular with reviewer. Here is another Canon EOS R7 review.

Photography Blog posted their full Canon EOS R7 review. They gave a 4.5/5 rating and a “Highly Recommended”. From their conclusion:

The R7 combines a more affordable APS-C sensor with lots of technologies and ideas that have trickled down from higher up the full-frame food chain, most notably the superlative Dual Pixel CMOS AF II autofocus system and fast burst rates, both of which make the R7 a great wildlife and sports camera.

Add in 4K/60p video with no crop, up to 8-stops of image stabilisation and a 32.5 megapixel, high-resolution sensor, and you have a very capable all-rounder that out-performs all previous Canon APS-C cameras, either DSLRs or mirrorless, and is also a very worthy alternative to the full-frame EOS R and RP models.

Our main bugbear is not with the R7 and R10 cameras themselves, but rather the lens support, or lack of it. OK, so the EOS RF-S mount is still very much in its infancy, but it would have been nice to see Canon offering something more interesting than two slow zoom lenses from day one, even if they are very affordable.
