This weekend, Canon put the EOS R on sale for $1500, with discounts as low as $1300. Even less using Canon's loyalty program, which Sony doesnt have. The EOS RP is only $1000.

I know these dont have dual card slots or IBIS,

no lens selection either.

but they do have a better touch screen, better EVF than the A7iii, included an adapter that works like native, and a flip screen. If you are looking at current like for like prices. Also consider the RF lenses are brand new designs the FE has been around for a couple years.

  • A7iii is $1800 vs EOS R $1300 vs EOS RP $1000
  • 35mm FE=$750 vs RF=$450

there are far more 35mm primes for e-mount, than just the sony brand.

  • Adapter FE=$180 vs RF=included or $100

you don't need an adapter with sony, because there are more lenses for e-mount than any other milc format on the planet... e-mount has a future, while canon camera sales have been dropping like a rock.

  • 70-200 GM=$2600 vs RF=$2700
  • 24-70 GM=$2200 vs RF=$2300
  • 24-70 Sigma=$1100
  • 24-105 GM=$1100 vs RF=$900
  • 24-200 GM=$950 vs RF=$900

looks like the brand name averages are equal there, with sony having the price edge with 3rd-party zooms.

I love that Sony advances the sensors so quickly, but things like a flip screen and a better adapter should have been done by now.

a better adapter for what, exactly? and why, when e-mount has such a vast lens lineup.
