We will take a more in-depth look at the Canon EOS R6, a mirrorless camera, as well as compare it to other models, such as the EOS R, the EOS R5, and the Nikon Z6 II. The unveiling of Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS R, was met with a highly mixed response, which is something that is not a secret at all.
There wasn’t really anything about this camera that stood out, especially when compared to Sony’s top products, and while it did display exceptional image quality when combined with the new RF mount lenses, there wasn’t really anything about this camera that distinguished out. Because it only had one slot for an SD memory card, did not have image stabilization built into the body, and had a touch bar that the vast majority of users ended up hating, the Canon EOS R felt more like an experiment than a real piece of photographic equipment.
When the EOS R5 and R6 were released, everything took a dramatic turn for the better. Canon remedied all of the problems that were present in the first iteration of the EOS R by reverting to its traditional ergonomic design, adding a plethora of new capabilities, and considerably enhancing the performance of the focusing system.
