One of the most interesting things, for me at least, that I have learnt working on these 10 year old images is just how good the Canon digital cameras were at producing great colours. I have heard a lot of this when Canon camera owners have tried to rubbish Sony cameras and lenses and quite honestly I tended to think of it as nonsense, at least as far as RAW images were concerned. Now I am not so sure. There does appear to be a qualitative difference between the images produced by the different camera systems. However, I don’t think one is better than the other but rather I had forgotten just how good the Canon’s images were. If I one the lottery would I change back to Canon? Not for one second but if I still had my significant collection of Canon lenses and cameras there would be no real reason to move Sony other than Sony system is significantly smaller and lighter.
One final thought. The images were captured with lenses and digital technology that now would be considered a joke by most of the talking YouTube photography heads. No IBIS shockingly poor if nonexistent video capability and only small digital file compared to the monsters of today. With one or two exceptions, the Canon 100-400m zoom was a bit dodgy, they produced brilliant images, at least as far as I am concerned, and that is in the end all that matters. This is a trend that I was already aware of given the shockingly ancient, by talking head standards, Sony cameras I use.
