Sony a7C vs Canon R5 C Comparison

Two Mirrorless cameras from Sony and Canon, the A7c and R5 C, are being compared in this article. The Sony Alpha A7c is a camera in the Advanced Mirrorless class, whereas the Canon EOS R5 C is a camera in the Pro Mirrorless class.

The Sony A7c and Canon R5 C were introduced on the market in September 2020 and January 2022, respectively. Because there is a 16-month gap between the A7c and the R5 C, we don’t anticipate seeing a significant technical difference between the two cameras; nonetheless, the younger R5 C would still have an edge, particularly in terms of sensor technology.
