Re: Sony Alpha 1, SEL 200-600 or Canon R5, RF 100-500

Earlier this year I had to make the same choice. I had the A7SIII and 200-600 (for video) and even though the R5 had some advantages (better video AF) I stayed with Sony and bought the A1 mostly because of the 200-600G -- Sony has it and Canon does not. The 100-500 is not the same as a 200-600, and I really didn't feel like laying out another $20k (CAD) for a 600/4 regardless of the brand.
