Sony a7 III vs Canon EOS R vs Nikon Z6 Head-To-Head Comparison

Sony A7 III

Here is another mirrorless comparison, Sony a7 III vs Canon EOS R vs Nikon Z6, by DPReview TV.

Chris and Jordan want to see if the significant firmware updates delivered by Nikon and Canon have changed their opinion on the EOS R and Nikon Z6, and how they stand up against what they consider being the gold standard, the Sony a7 III.

We covered the Nikon Z6 and the Sony a7 III many times.

This Is The Nikon Z50, An APS-C Mirrorless Camera In The Z Lineup

Nikon Z50

It’s real. Nikon is going to release a new mirrorless camera in the Z lineup.

After the Nikon Z 6 and Nikon Z 7, both featuring a full frame sensor, the Nikon Z50 is the first camera with an APS-C sensor. The Nikon Z50 is expected to be announced in a few days.

Will Canon follow Nikon and also announce a mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor in the EOS R lineup? We think not. The difference between he two manufacturers is, Canon already has a successful mirrorless lineup with the EOS M system, Nikon has not. Although it’s technically feasible, it doesn’t make much sense for Canon.

Nikon Might Have A Z Series Mirrorless Camera with APS-C Sensor Up Their Sleeve, Patent

Mirrorless

It seems Nikon is working on a Z series mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor.

That’s what a Nikon patent application suggests. Patent application  2018-15571 discusses such a camera. The camera depicted in the patent literature seems to have no EVF (Electronic View Finder).

We are a bit puzzled. After the release of the Canon EOS R, there have been some weird rumors Canon could release an EOS R model with an APS-C sensor, which we deem to be utterly unlikely. However, if Nikon is set to release a Z series mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor we can’t exclude Canon will do the same. There is however one big difference between the two manufacturer: Canon has a very successful APS-C mirrorless camera lineup with the EOS M, Nikon does not.

Sony a7R IV vs Sigma fp vs Canon EOS R vs Canon EOS RP Size Comparison

Sony A7R IV

Let’s see how the brand new Sony a7R IV compares to the competition when it comes to size and bulk.

Below is the size comparison (from camerasize.com) between the Sony a7R IV, Sigma fp, and Canon EOS R.

It’s amazing how small and compact the Sigma fp is (while still having a full frame sensor). I do not know how the Sigma fp will look and can be handled with a telephoto lens attached, but it definitely looks cool with its diminutive form factor.

And what to say about the new a7R IV? Impressive at least. Guess the a7R IV is the new reference standard for the competition. While I am happy that Canon only releases thoroughly tested gear (which as good as never lets you out in the rain, or overheats and turns off), I also wish they could push technological innovation a bit more (especially on the specifications/feature side of things).
