Conclusion from Photography Blog:
The ‘headline’ inclusion of 4K video to bring the EOS 850D up to speed (and set it apart from older rival DSLRs) is in reality extremely limited through a significant crop factor and with the loss of phase detection AF.
If video is in your sights, we’d go for a mirrorless alternative.
To set the EOS 850D apart, we feel that Canon should have majored more in the areas where a DSLR holds the upper hand over mirrorless; better battery life and a bright optical viewfinder.
The viewfinder display is a let down and the battery unit is small and its performance dips in live view mode.
Does all this make the Canon EOS 850D a bad camera? Not at all!
It’s still competitive with a 24.1 megapixel sensor, rapid and reliable dual pixel AF, a polished vari-angle touchscreen and 7fps continuous shooting.
The Canon EOS 850D is a good all-rounder for photography, if a little expensive for what you get.
