Sony is really coming on strong with their camera sensors and many Nikon cameras are now using Sony sensors. Although Canon has improved their sensor technology with the new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV its performance still, admittedly, lags behind Sony and Nikon with their stellar Sony sensors. On paper, and when pixel-peeping, this difference is more apparent than in real life shooting performance in the field. So, with the edge going to Sony (in so many key areas) why would I choose to stay with stodgy old Canon? As a professional photographer the main reasons include: their heavy-duty weather sealed pro-level camera bodies and lenses (they are reliable); their ergonomics and ease of use; their speed and accuracy and their incredible array of pro-level lenses (of which I have a huge investment). This is a great review and compares two incredible, but distinctly different, camera systems. Which is right for you? Caveat: In the beginning he inadvertently refers to the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV as a Mark III (it is, in fact, the newer Mark IV he’s talking about).
