Leica has announced an replace to its compact, modern mirrorless line. Compared to a digital camera just like the Canon M5, you aren’t getting quite the resolution with a smaller image sensor and fewer megapixels, but the 4K video, glossy design, and entry to good lenses all are huge selling points. Fujifilm’s two flagship mirrorless cameras are represented above in the X-T2 and X-Professional-2, but we nonetheless actually like the cheaper X-T20.
Lately we requested a Fujifilm rep whether they had been making a full-body mirrorless digital camera to compete with the likes of Sony’s venerable Alpha series. We also lately eliminated the entry-degree Samsung NX3000 from this list—after Samsung’s camera division was a no-present at CES 2016, it seems even more likely that the tip is near.
Samsung and Nikon have far more limited lens collections and many individuals persist with the kit lenses. However we won’t overlook the value—the a6000 literally is simply over one-quarter the cost of the flashy Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II beneath however still does a darn good job by way of performance.
We also prefer the Micro Four Thirds lens options to Sony E-Mount. Olympus and Panasonic mirrorless cameras have Micro 4 Thirds mounts and you should use these cameras and lenses interchangeably. Some models additionally supply a second screen inside an electronic viewfinder (EVF) that you would be able to put your eye to. Our example of a mirrorless camera, one in all our favorites, is Sony’s A6300.
What we do not: Videographers beware: the a7R II could overheat when shooting 4K for extended periods. Panasonic is thought for video, so it is no surprise that the G85 shoots 4K and is darn good at it. You also get a 16-megapixel Micro 4 Thirds sensor, quick continuous shooting, and good autofocus for the value.
