If you're a steadfast Sony loyalist, you might want to look away now, because a dedicated Sony shooter just got his hands on the Canon EOS R5 and a bunch of Canon lenses and absolutely loved the ecosystem. Take a look to find out why.
In today's world of competing brands, I honestly believe there's very little separating most makers that sit at the high end of quality. Whether it's cars, clothes, cameras, or computers, the better names in each industry all make outstanding gear. In the world that I inhabit, surfboards are a perfect example. If you look at the most famous boards and shapers on the market today like Thomas Bexon, Chris Christenson, Michael Takayama, or Wayne Rich, each board they produce is a work of art that is both aesthetically gorgeous and high performance. In short, you can't go wrong with any of them, so there's really no point trying to say one is better than the other. I feel it's pretty much the same in the camera world, but do others agree with my belief?
That question brings us to this great video by Glyn Dewis, in which he runs us through his experiences using a Canon EOS R5 and concomitant lenses. Dewis is a self-confessed Sony man, but he makes the important point that he is not a Sony ambassador: he bought all his gear himself, so he's under no obligation to be loyal. So, how did he find using the Canon setup? In short, he loved it. Some things he found really pleasing were the build and the ergonomics of the Canon body, as well as the simple, intuitive menu. There's plenty more that he liked, so give the video a look and let me know your thoughts below. Have you ever used another setup and been pleasantly impressed?
