Ted Forbes disappointed by the Canon-Nikon announcements: “Sony understands that mirrorless is more than just taking out the mirror”


Ted Forbes quickly summed up what are my exact thoughts on the new Canon EOS-R system.

And just to give you one more thing to think about…

As you see from DxOmark Canon is really way behind Sony’s sensor tech. Thre difference is much bigger than expressed in those numbers because it doens’t evaluate the video quality. The Canon sensor is incapable of reading out 4K FF without crop, and has soft 4K quality compared to Sony. And I doubt they have the resources to close the gap. On the contrary I expect the gap to get bigger. Eventually I can see Canon using Sony sensors just like Nikon does.
