Sydney Zoo

Sydney Zoo

These photos were taken at Sydney Zoo to test the new Canon EOS R6 and a RF 100-500 f/4.5-7.1 L USM I picked up recently.

I settled on the EOS R6 as it is a well-rounded mirrorless camera around the $3500 AUD mark. Other comparable bodies I considered were the Canon EOS R5, Sony A7 III, and Nikon Z7. The EOS R5 is better, with a top LCD, 25 more megapixels, more video features, and higher resolution EVF, but costs an extra $2000 AUD. I'm fond of Nikons as the D700 was the first DSLR I shot on but Nikon has the smallest range of lens for their mirrorless cameras at the moment. The A7 III was really uncomfortable to hold so it was a no for me. Ken Rockwell has written a great in-depth comparison article.

So far I'm happy with my purchase. I just wish it had a top LCD and more physical buttons like the D700.
