As well as being compared against other entry-level DSLRs, the Canon EOS 80D is also often compared to boutiques, pro DSLRs, mirrorless, pro digicams and super zooms. The Canon EOS 80D's top rivals come from Canon (such as the EOS RP and the EOS 6D) and Sony (such as the a6400 and the Alpha A6000)

compared toEntry-level DSLR competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon EOS 80D compared to other entry-level DSLR competitors include: it records higher quality movies (1080p @ 60fps vs 1080p @ 30fps), slightly larger viewfinder (0.59x vs 0.54x), takes much higher resolution photos (24 MP vs 17.9 MP), has a touch screen and has a weather sealed body.

However, on average it has a slightly smaller screen (3" vs 3.2"), has a slightly lower resolution screen (1,040k dots vs 1,228k dots), is significantly larger (professional size (139×105×79 mm) vs professional size (132×101×78 mm)), has fewer storage slots (1 vs 2) and doesn't have a built-in focus motor.
