Image Quality Comparison: Canon EOS R vs 5D Mark IV vs 6D Mark II vs a7 III vs a7R III

Tony Northrup has tested the Canon EOS R image quality and compared it against its biggest competitors: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EOS 6D Mark II, Sony a7 III and Sony a7R III.

I was really shocked by the results of this comparison review – the Canon EOS R solidly beats the a7 III in most conditions, with noticeably sharper images, even at high ISOs. However, the dynamic range of the EOS R has a real flaw: heavy banding when recovering shadows. We don’t see this flaw in the 5D Mk IV, which supposedly has the same sensor. Nonetheless, dynamic range is better than the Canon 6D Mk II.
