Mirrorless Camera Comparison

A number of our readers have been requesting our team about our recommendations on various mirrorless cameras. With so many different options available today, choosing a mirrorless system can get very puzzling. In this particular article, I would like to begin by comparing mirrorless camera techniques that are available today from different producers. This below charts will be up-to-date periodically with new / up-to-date information. Please note that the below reviews are only for mirrorless interchangeable zoom lens cameras. Discontinued systems such as Pentax K-01, Ricoh GXR, Pentax Queen and Samsung NX have been taken out. The list is sorted alphabetically together to be split into two parts to match. Also, please keep in mind that some of the standards presented in this article are very subjective, depending on our and our readers’ earlier experience using the cameras. I have furthermore published an article comparing mirrorless systems , exactly where I go into a lot more detail regarding lenses and other important considerations.

I am never going to pick a winner from the above graph, as there are some important criteria to think about such as autofocus speed, image high quality, lens selection, compactness and cost. So if you are shopping for a mirrorless program, I hope you will use the above graph as a reference point.

Please let me know if you have any queries!
