Sony a7C vs Canon M50 II Comparison

We’re comparing the Sony A7c and Canon M50 Mark II, two mirrorless cameras from Sony and Canon, respectively. The Sony Alpha A7c belongs to the Advanced Mirrorless class, while the Canon EOS M50 Mark II belongs to the Entry-Level Mirrorless class.

The Sony A7c was released in September 2020, and the Canon M50 II was released in October 2020. We expect this to be a fair comparison in terms of age and technological level because the A7c and M50 Mark II are only separated by one month.

This will be a fascinating matchup because, while not having the same body style, these two cameras are both listed among the Top 10 cameras in their respective classes. With an overall score of 87, the Sony A7c is ranked #1 out of 53 Advanced Mirrorless cameras, while the Canon M50 II is placed #10 out of 115 Entry-Level Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 74.
