well, how do I say it:-)
I am using 5D MkIII and have 4 batteries as I many times go to wilderness for 7-10 days. One battery will last 1200 shots more or less. So it means I need to have 16?

to me, it is the battery. Very surprised that the company does such an amazing thing with the camera overall only to provide a low performing battery with it. Sony is able to get twice as many shots per battery

Is Sony's battery bigger? What is it's Watt Hour specification compared to Canon, If they are the same then it probably means that the Sony electronics are more efficient.

This isn't really an issue though, just pack a couple extra batteries.

With your input, you'll will help me and maybe others with purchasing decisions. Thanks in advance.

If you need 16 batteries with one camera to do what another can do with 4 (and batteries are the driver) it would seem that you know everything you need to know to make your decision. I use an EOS R, these days and carry two spare batteries. I have never needed more than one of them. YMMV.
