Canon EOS R Cameras (2019) vs Sony α6x00 (Advanced APS-C) Mirrorless Cameras (2016)

Analysis:

The Canon EOS RP (2019) has done remarkably well in a large number of roundups done by reliable sources that perform their own hands-on testing, such as PCmag, shotkit.com, CNET, Digital Camera World, and Digital Photography Review. It earned numerous awards - "Best for Full Frame on a Budget" from PCmag, "GREAT VALUE" from shotkit.com, and "Best entry level camera for the Canon devotee" from CNET.

Moving on to the Sony α6500 (2016): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like Tom's Guide, camerajabber.com, Photography Blog, Techradar, TrustedReviews, DXOMARK, The Phoblographer, shotkit.com, PCmag, Digital Camera World, and Wirecutter (NYTimes), enough for them to include them on those lists.

Out of the sources that tested and rated both of these Mirrorless Cameras, Digital Camera World preferred the Canon EOS RP (2019), whereas reviewers at Pocket-lint and TrustedReviews liked the Sony α6500 (2016) better. Techradar, DXOMARK, PCmag, and Tom's Guide gave them identical review scores.

We also took a look at which sources liked these products best - the highest Canon EOS RP (2019) rating came from Techradar, whereas the Sony α6500 (2016) most impressed reviewers at camerajabber.com; they earned scores of 9 and 10, respectively.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Mirrorless Cameras on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Mirrorless Cameras being 7.9 out of 10, whereas the Canon EOS RP (2019) and Sony α6500 (2016) managed averages of 8.1 and 8.5 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Canon EOS RP (2019) vs. Sony α6500 (2016) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
