 Canon A

Design difference

With a approx 100gm difference in body weight, the Canon is made with magnesium alloy chassis with a polycarbonate body and the Sony is made up with magnesium alloy body.

Both camera features fullframe sensor inside them, as you can see the Canon 6D mark II camera features a bigger body compared to the Sony A7 III camera.

I prefer Canon 6D Mark II over the Sony A7 III when we compared the Top controls and Top LCD display of both the camera, If you want top LCD display in Sony line-up you have to get the Sony A9 camera, but thankfully Canon 6D mk II does Top LCD display with extensive manual controls.

On the rear side you get the vari-angle display screen with Canon 6D Mark II which is more usable for your compositional freedom and highly essential for live content creators.

I am always not in favor of  size and weight comparison of camera with interchangeable lens camera systems, since both camera requires different type of lenses to shoot and when you add lenses to these camera the siz and weight of the body changes rapidly.

Sensor Size and Image quality

Canon 6D Mark II camera features bit more resolution and the Sony A7 III camera features one stop more ISO range. As you can see in the high ISO test, the Canon 6D Mark II image quality look bit inferior compared to Sony A7 III, may be due to one stop more dynamic range of the Sony A7 III camera.

Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D Mark III High ISO Test

We have picked up high ISO test samples taken at ISO 51200 via dpreview you can view more at the dprview website.

AF area comparison between the Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D Mark II

Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D II

We  have compared the on screen phase AF points of Canon 6D Mark II vs Sony A7 III. However when you have Canon 6D Mark II at live view mode and taking still or recording a video, you get entire view-able area under AF mode due to the help DPAF technology. So, if we talk about the AF the Canon 6D Mark II isn’t look inferior compared to Sony A7 III camera.

Canon 6D Mark II DPAF Coverage

Canon 6D Mark II DPAF coverage is similar to Sony A7 III 693 AF point based Hybrid AF sensor, so literally we don’t have any big difference in the AF systems of both the camera, however Canon is giving you Phase AF sensor exclusively that work with viewfinder of the camera.

Video – 4K vs Full HD

Both camera does ultra fast AF while recording video, but Canon 6D Mark II is limited to Full HD video recording mode which can disappoint you . So, if you are a professional cinematographer you may prefer picking up Sony A7 III camera. But for youtube content creators Canon 6D Mark II is more usable due to its vari-angle display.

Sony A7 III vs Canon 6D mark II Dynamic Range Score

From DXO Mark Test results, you can see we have a big difference in between the test scores of both the camera. The color depth, Dynamic range as well as Low Light ISO score of Sony A7 III camera is better compared to the Canon 6D Mark II.

More Test on Dynamic Range by Photons to Photos

Dynamic range test from Photons to photo website, from both the DXO mark test results as well as PTP the Sony A7 III camera is showing better dynamic range compared to the Canon 6D Mark II camera.

Wide Range of Lenses available with Canon 6D Mark II

Canon 6D Mark II offers wide range of AF lenses with the EF and EF-S mount support, and guess what you can get the 50mm F1.8 yongo lens @ $45 only at B&H store and if you can afford you Canon 50mm F1.2 L lens ia available at $1299 at B&H Store. So, you have wide range of lenses available based on your need, budget and features.

Concision

Canon 6D Mark II camera doesn’t have top end features like the Sony A7 III camera and yes Sony A7 III is a better choice compared to Sony A7 III camera. The final choice is yours what you need from you camera, but both of them are excellent tool for us.

No Sony A7S III at NAB - A Quick Update

Many rumor mills were expecting the arrival of the Sony A7S III camera during NAB 2018 show. But, as I always say… before the arrival of any camera we generally get some strong hints prior to it’s announcement. But, this time everything was completely dry and even trusted Japanese sources were completely silent.

One of the most interesting thing is Sony doesn’t have any new camera registered in the wireless certification agency. That also clearly indicates we will not going to see any new Mirrorless OR pro compact camera from Sony at least for next 2 to 3 months.

Take a look at the list of Sony camera we are expecting this year

1. Sony A7S III

Sony A7S III camera is also overdue for an update and we are expecting its update this year. Based on rumors we have received in past the Sony A7S II camera is expected to arrive with a stacked CMOS sensor.

2. One more Mirrorless announcement on and before Sep 2018

Surprise announcement to overshadow the Nikon and Canon Mirrorless announcements, introduction and new A9 series camera possibly A9R or A7R IV.

3. Sony A6700 / Sony A7000

Overdue for an update, Sony A6700 is rumored to feature 4K at 60p and stacked CMOS sensor.

4. Sony RX100 VI

Delayed due to the announcement of RX10 IV last year, Sony RX100 VI is scheduled to arrive at the end of 2018 or may the beginning of 2019.

Sony A7S III camera image

According to the latest rumors coming from reputed rumor mill, the upcoming Sony A7S III camera will going to have a completely brand new sensor integrated with integral memory.

Sony A7S was first introduced bak on Sep 2014 and just after a year gap Sony introduced the Sony A7S II camera by having the same 12MP sensor, one stop more ISO range, built-in IS and more dense AF points (from 25 to 165).
