But we can all agree that the A7Rii is not without its faults right?
Every camera Canon has produced for the best 4 years at least gets launched with yawns and general hate from the online community, however still end up being best sellers (and not just because people are blind fanboys). The cameras just work and the footage/stills they produce look good. It happened with the 5d3 and the C100 and the best example was probably the C300. That camera was launched at the same time as the Red Scarlet. On paper the Scarlet destroyed that camera, however the C300 became the most rented camera of pretty much ever.
Sony on the other hand launches extremely exciting cameras all the time (almost too quickly) that get met with praise for all the features they've managed to jam into the cameras. However upon use users to find all the little quirks their cameras have (menus, colour science, battery life, ergonomics, over heating etc) which push a lot of people back into more stable systems. For tons of users, they are happy to work around these little things because they love the final image, for others it just doesn't work.
Canon and Sony both have some real strengths to them and they both have some real draw backs. They each suit a different style of shooter. Personally I've been waiting on a camera that does excellent stills and videos and for my work Sony just isn't there yet. I primarily shoot events and need a camera that just works all the time and quickly.
Objectively speaking, the A7Rii definitely outputs a better raw file in photos and shoots nicer videos, but it isn't a quick enough camera in either scenario for my style of shooting.
I'd rather know for sure that I'm going to get the shot than have no shot at all.
Also mentioning h265 isn't super relevant, because the only camera to support it was Samsung's NX1 and well... looked what happened to that camera. I'd rather buy into a system that I know was going to be around for years, than hop on some new tech trend and have the system get cancelled.
