Leave Canon for Sony
6

I feel Canon camera body is always behind when it comes to technology - IBIS, eyeAF, dual card slot, 4K, sensor. I waited and waited, but they always end up in disappointment - EOS R with single slot and recycle 2 year old sensor, no IBIS. While the new RF lenses are very nice, it's also very expensive. I shoot mostly Sigma Art lenses and Tamron with 2 L lens - 24-70, 70-200 2.8. Their camera is underspec and overprice. People always justify the camera because of ergonomic, color, menu, touchscreen, EVF, but I find the Panasonic S1 has match or exceed EOS R.

The rumor of 5DSR replacement for their Pro body also leave me disappointing. I don't need 50 mpx+ camera. I hope it isn't recycle 5DSR sensor either.I was hoping 5DIV FF mirrorless replacement, but I feel like it's likely going to be disapponting like 5D IV, 6D II, EOS R for me.

I'm currently thinking of waiting for A7SIII/A9R (5.7 million dot EVF, 36 mpx 16 bit sensor) before making the jump to FF mirrorless. I'm also considering Panasonic S1 as well.

I shoot wedding, portrait, landscape and use Godox off camera lighting extensively. I consolidate 5 lens and most of them are Sigma Art lenses.

Anyone regret leaving Canon for Sony?
