Sony makes appliances and Canon is over-priced and a few years behind (so much so that DPR went out of its way to compare the R3 to the 2 year old--and thousands of dollars cheaper--Sony A9 II).

You forgot to mention how many times the R5 (not a flagship camera) has been compared to the A1 (flagship camera) and fared very well. And even though Canon is 'so far behind in tech', they are still the #1 camera seller. Imagine that!


David, I left out the R5 as a courtesy (some people can't handle comparisons like adults. They resort to labels as "obsession," or "fan-boy" or "smearing," you see, when people hold opinions different than theirs).

In my mind, the R5 is most well-known for its over-heating and cooked RAWs (the baked-in noise reduction smears detail, as DPR itself mentioned recently). To its credit, it walks all over Sony--ergonomics-wise.

What you prioritize (e.g., sales volume) might be different than me, and that's fine.
