Nikon Z6 II vs Canon R5 vs Sony a7 III Autofocus Comparison

Over the last several years, autofocus technology in cameras has gotten incredibly reliable regardless of the manufacturer. Manny Ortiz’s video set out to see if there was a notable difference among the big three.

Through a series of test, each camera shows its various strengths and weaknesses. The Nikon Z6 II could more easily jump back to a model’s face when a large object obscures the shot. In comparison, both the Canon EOS R5 and the a7 III had to re-acquire focus by half-pressing the shutter button repeatedly.

The Canon R5 was the fastest to find a model’s face when panning into a scene, while the Nikon wasn’t too far behind it. Sony, however, seemed to prioritize objects closer to the frame than a face.

The a7 III was able to lock on to a model’s face from the farthest away. For the Z6 II and R5, the model’s face was too small for algorithms to recognize its face.
