A friend of mine has used a Canon DSLR for a couple of years and is now considering downsizing to something more compact and lighter. Having gone through the same process not long ago, going from aCanon 5D Mk II to a Sony A6000, I mentioned to him Sony line of mirrorless cameras and how compact they are.
He asked if I could post photos of the Sony mirrorless A6000 and the Canon 5D Mk II side by side. So here they are.
Note the Canon has a prime lens, EF 50mm 1.8, while the A6000 has the kit zoom 16-55mm. This setup doesn’t show the real size and volume difference between an A6000 with a zoom and a 5D Mk II with a zoom. I’ll try take another batch with my 24-105 mounted on the Canon to make an apple-to-apple comparison.
Since I got the Sony A6000, I hardly use my Canon 5D MkII any more. Weight and volume definitely play in favour of the Sony.
