Re: Z or Canon R5 system

Actually wondering the same thing because having the Z7 original and some glasses but not convinced mainly because of the banding when pulling the shadows and slow AF.

I've been looking the studio tests on dpreview and comparing cameras. I end up with the a7II for the next reasons :

  • corrected banding. there's no more banding in this generation
  • sharpness. z7 and z7II have better IQ than the R5 for what I can see
  • of course financially better option the stay in the system than switching
  • Nikon still has a "je ne sais quoi" to my eye

why would I move to Canon in a future :

  • Nikon not being able to deliver better AF (auto) camera in the next gens
  • if I'm still thinking canon make better choices in lenses and no interesting 3rd party glasses coming to the z system. (I'm not videographer and not worry with focus breathing) 

hope it helped a bit with my subjective point of view. but to my eyes it would be totally fine to move to Canon.

stay well and have a good day
