Sony a7C vs Nikon Z6 II Comparison

We’re comparing the Sony A7c and Nikon Z6 Mark II, two Mirrorless cameras from Sony and Nikon, respectively. The Sony Alpha A7c is a camera in the Advanced Mirrorless class, whereas the Nikon Z6 Mark II is a camera in the Pro Mirrorless class.

The Sony A7c will hit the market in September 2020, while the Nikon Z6 II will hit the market in October of the same year. Because there is only a one-month difference in age between the A7c and the Z6 Mark II, we expect this to be a fair comparison in terms of both age and technological level.
