Sony A7 IV VS Canon R5 Comparison

Sony A7 IV and Canon R5 seem to be very good cameras both cameras actually work quite comfortably well I’m going to make a small comparison between two mirrorless cameras in-depth review with many technical specifications or comparisons in all environments.

these cameras for the revolution are so strong that they are hitting precisely the speed of focus. So, Sony A7 IV is the one that has the fastest focusing systems, and Canon R5 is already in a position at the height of Sony to compete on equal terms in focus systems.
