Since I can't go to Africa to shoot in the wild right now, I went to the zoo with two camera setups to see how they would perform relative to one another.  I chose to focus (figuratively and literally) on Orangutans.

1. The EOS 7D MkII, and the Sigma 150-600 C lens - giving a FoV of 240-960mm equivalent

2. The EOS R6, with the RF 100-500 lens


First the 7DII images:

#1: SOCIAL CLIMBER:  EOS 7DII, Sigma 150-600C, 302mm, f/8, 1/400sec, ISO-640

#2: BORED OR THOUGHTFUL?  EOS 7DII, Sigma 150-600C, 435mm, f/8, 1/800sec, ISO-800



Then the R6 Images:

#3: ON THE ROPES:  Canon EOS R6, RF 100-500, 500mm, f/7.1, 1/500sec, ISO-640

#4:  PENSIVE:  Canon EOS R6, RF 100-500, 500mm, f/7.1, 1/500sec, ISO-3200


The 7DII is good, but the R6 with animal eye autofocus got me more keepers.
