Canon 1DX Mark II vs Sony A7R II

canon-1DX-Mk-II-vs-A7R-IICanon 1DX features newly developed Hybrid CMOS sensor and traditional AF system from 1DX, a killer combo on the other hand the Sony A7R II features Hybrid AF sensor with 399 AF points.

Let’s talk about the number game, the 399 Phase AF pixels inside the Sony sensor looks like a very big quantity.. but I recommend not to run behind the number game of AF points or ISO range… 

Literally every two sub-pixel  inside the Canon sensor does the AF job, so we can say that Canon 1DX Mark II have 20 sub-million pixels and 10 million pixels are responsible for AF.

Sensor  -Resolution, ISO and Sensor based AF

The Sony A7R II features super resolution 42 Megapixel sensor, but Canon 1DX Mark II resolution remains limited to 20 Megapixel. However, despite of having 2X more dense pixel structure Sony manages to produce MAX ISO range of 409600 similar to that of Canon 1DX.

ISO range of both the camera is same, so introduce Dual-Pixel CMOS AF sensor inside the Canon 1DX Mark II camera until we see some read world test we can’t say which one is good.

Continuous shooting speed: Canon 1DX Mark II feature 16 fps continuous shooting speed on the other hand the Sony A7R II remains limited to 5 fps, the big hurdel in front of Sony is the processing of 42 MP image data and on the other hand we have Canon 1DX Mark II with 20.2 MP sensor.

Verdict

Both the completely different system based on photographers need and budget, Sony A7R II and Canon 1DX Mark II both have advance core specification. If you are a hobbyist and looking for a prefect system in less cost A7R II

Sony does have limited set of lenses to choose from, so photographers may feel bit suffocated while selecting the Sony camera. So before buying the camera do a extensive market research.

The other big factor is professional support after sale, Canon and Nikon have worldwide professional support staff to assist you after your product purchase.

8 comments to Canon 1DX Mark II vs Sony A7R II

  • The comparisons between these 2 cameras, the Canon 1DXii with 20.2 megapixels, and the mirrorless Sony A7rii with 42 megapixels. Now look at the body style between the two. One is larger in size and heavier in weight. Sony’s 42 megapixels has an advantage for resolutions. But think of the file size compared to 20.2 megapixels of the Canon. If you go to any NFL football games, you will see many Canon 1DX and Nikon D4s cameras. They are built heavy for toughness and durability for rugged outdoor and indoor use. Not for complainers who opt for lightweight cameras. There should not be a comparison to these two cameras. If you can’t handle the weight of the camera. Then don’t buy it.

    Do you know that the a7rii has 100 000 iso max?? and not 400 000???

    You can’t compare them. They are professional cameras but for different jobs. I have used a 1DX and have an a7rll for back up. The 1DX gives exceptionally good service for 90% of my activities. But, surprisingly my best shots and also most of my worst shots have come from the a7rll. The real benefit of the Sony is that I can carry it in one pocket and it’s lens in another!

    Hi,
    We have written in the verdict

    @ Curt We have to do the comparison based on user demand, We know that Canon and Nikon are still No.1 choice for professional shooters.

  • Crinosil

    Look Admin… I have and Love the Sony A7Rm2…. but even I know that its silly to say that the 399 Phase-Detect AF Points & 5 fps Burst AF system of the Sony is better than the

    61-point AF system, expanded range, 41-point cross-type AF system of the Canon… that is just plain ridiculous

  • You say: “Sony does have limited set of lenses to choose from, so photographers may feel bit suffocated while selecting the Sony camera. So before buying the camera do a extensive market research.”

    I do have a question for you. How can you say that Sony has a limited set of lenses when you can attach almost every lens made in the last 100+ years to this camera and take photos? So a system that can use almost every lens made has a pretty good set of lenses.

    I agree the two cameras are different for different purposes. both are great cameras.
