Sony a7C vs Canon R5 Comparison

Here we are comparing the Sony A7c with the Canon R5, two Mirrorless cameras from Sony and Canon, respectively. The Sony Alpha A7c is a camera in the Advanced Mirrorless class, whereas the Canon EOS R5 is a camera in the Pro Mirrorless class.

The Sony A7c will hit the market in September 2020, while the Canon R5 will hit the market in July of the same year. Because the age gap between A7c and R5 is just 2 months, we anticipate that this will be a fair comparison in terms of both age and technological level.

Because, despite the fact that these two cameras do not have the exact same body type, they are both ranked among the top ten cameras in their respective classes, this will be an exciting matchup. The Sony A7c is ranked first out of 53 Advanced Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 87, while the Canon R5 is placed sixth out of 59 Pro Mirrorless cameras with a score of 96. The Sony A7c is the best-selling camera in the world.
