Why I chose CANON in 2018 (dSLR) and not the new players..

Hello, I recently bought a Canon EOS 6D (yes in 2018) and am asked why I did not choose a newer technology..

Answers in no particular order:

- My experience of image quality or at least NICE PICTURES OUT OF THE CAMERA

- History of support on various brands

- Compatibility of lenses 20 yr later for some brands..

- Experience on reliability on various brands

A few cameras I had in the last 20 yr:

- Canon argentic SLR EOS 500 N

- Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5

https://www.dpreview.com/products/sony/compacts/sony_dschx5

- Canon PowerShot S30

https://www.dpreview.com/products/canon/compacts/canon_s30

In my experience, Canon has proven to be a better investment with nicer images looking back 20yr back.

Sony for ex. gave me less flattering, dull pictures and the 'automatic' lens cover failed..

Canon ecosystem amazed me when I found my EOS 6D can still take the same objectives I bought as a student with my first argentic SLR.

On the other hand, I understand the frustration about Canon always protecting its margins by limiting introduction of newer functionalities.

My 2cts

Take care
