It's hard to keep up with Sony, given they put out a new product every few weeks. They've made huge improvements in the EVF, fps and sensor DR in the last few months. Metabones is out with a new series of adapters for latest generation Canon and Nikon lenses, preserving AF and communication, such that sport and wildlife photographers can seriously consider a switch. It's a crop sensor, but the Alpha a6300 has 24mp, a super-fast and accurate AF at 8-fps and handles Nikon and Canon lenses with the latest Metabones adapter. Sony's full-frames sensors compete directly with Nikon's, since they provide sensors to Nikon.

When you talk about fast Canon and Sony, full-frame DSLRs, then it's the 1D X and the D5. Both have very course pixel-density and can't be considered as challengers to MF. They're designed for fast, accurate AF, with high fps, not high resolution. Sports usage is really entirely different than how most would use a MF camera. Better comparables are the D810 and the 5DsR, with very high pixel-density with good dynamic range and average fps.
