This is most likely asked before, but I have to decide within a few days which combo to go for.. The money is about equal, since the A1 is more expensive than Canon R5. Today I have the A9ii with the 200-600mm. I am going more into bird photography and both combinations is excellent for BIF, but they are also somewhat different.. I have been a long time Sony shooter, but also owned Canon gear some years ago.

Does anyone have some facts to consider helping med to decide.. I would probably be happy with both combos, and AF, eye AF and IQ is probably the most important for me. Something tells me to stay Sony, but I am not sure..

Hi,

I own the Sony 200-600 and use it on the A7rIV. Don't own the Canon.
But, I would think that Canon used to make excellent lenses.

Switching systems is always a huge expense.

Canon has some affordable long telephoto lenses that are said to work well.

Here are some samples from the A7rIV/200-600 combo.

Best regards

Erik
