A simple answer for me is that I use my camera for photometry as well as pretty pics. It is much harder to achieve accurate results with an antiblooming chip and/or with a colour chip.
This makes the QHY camera less attractive.
I don't use the internal guider in my camera but use a QHY guider.
Depends on your needs.
