Yes, other companies are innovative as well.
Is any other company innovating on all fronts, e.g. how many other manufacturers have a 11-24mm FF zoom or 17mm TS lens? It took Nikon 6 years to come up with a 19mm PCE lens.
Yes, all the manufacturers cover the bread & butter lenses. I could switch all photography equipment to Nikon and Sony, and keep going as usual.
True, but the sensor is just a part of the equation.
Every manufactures have specialty lenses. If you need 11-24 where a Sigma 12-24 F4 can't do or need TS lens, then go with Canon. Also, with Panasonic and Sony do have adapter to take EF lens so that might be an option.
We are really spoil by choices nowadays when it come to lens or camera. There is no wrong choice if you prioritize camera body or lenses. It totally depending on your preference and what you shoot.
I'm just responding to previous poster why photographers would say Canon isn't innovating even though they release awesome lenses.
It's a great time to be a photographers. We have so many choices when it come to camera body, lenses, lighting gears, and software. I'm brand agnostic so I just mix and match whatever serve me best at a great value.No one care what you shoot as long you deliver the results.
