3 comments to Canon 5DS R vs. Sony A7R

  • Eager to see Sony’s new 50MP E-mount camera. It will be a battle between Sony and Canon!

  • Marcus

    It’s not only a battle between sensors. It’s also a battle between the lenses, the AF system, the shutte cycle, the writing speed, the battery live …

    If you have a lot of gear you can’t switch because a lot of money get lost.

    The Sony camera maybe appear in the 4th quarter of 2015 or early in 2016. If you have canon lenses and need a replacement now for your work you can’t wait what Sony is doing.

  • Marcus

    If you often use the display you can’t take 700 images with the EOS 5DsR. You get only 500 images or less.

    I am happy that the 5DsR don’t have WIFI, because the 5DsR is a battery eating camera. With WIFI on board the amount of possible images you can take with one battery is a big step under 700 images.

    I have the new A7R too. The camera is much smaller than the 5DsR and has less weight, but it’s a mess to put big lenses in front of the camera (even with the additional battery grip).
