Canon EOS R5 vs Sony a7R IV Comparison for Wildlife Photography

Let’s ask the question together. How can we compare the Canon EOS R5 to the Sony A7R III or A7R IV for wildlife photography?

Chelsea made a test for wildlife setups of varying prices to show which camera and lens combination is the best choice. Will the Sony’s compact 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 measure up to Canon’s new 800mm f/11? Will there be a difference between Canon and Sony’s 600mm f/4 lenses? Most importantly, how well do the Canon R5‘s features and the Sony a7R IV features work while taking wildlife photos? Check it out :
