Nikon and Canon are finally getting serious about mirrorless cameras. Nikon with its new Z Mount System and Canon with its new EOS R System are both entering the mirrorless space with a bang.
Let’s compare the 2 new flagship mirrorless cameras from both manufacturers:
Focus / Autofocus
Conclusion / Opinions
It’s a really tough call, and both systems have their pros and cons. I’d say that there’s no clear winner, and it’ll depend on the type of shooting that you do.
Obviously, if you’re already a Nikon or a Canon shooter, the choice is easier, but if you’re getting your 1st camera or thinking of changing system, then you’ll have to really think about it.
The Nikon Z7 seems to be aimed more at pro photographers, while the Canon EOS R leans more towards the casual/hobbyist shooter. This is reflected in the price difference too. The in-body of image stabilization in the Z7 is really nice. As for autofocus performance, in-field reviews should help decide who’s the winner.
A point of contention for both cameras is that they both have only 1 memory card slot. Many photographers like the added safety of a second card slot for instant backups.
