Olympus E-M1 II Review

20.4mp | Non-Zoom | $1,999
Back in 2013, the E-M1 made a big splash, and now the updated Olympus E-M1 Mark II makes an even bigger one. Packed with a new 20MP sensor, revamped AF system, faster image processor (two, in fact), 4K video and more, the E-M1 Mark II addresses the performance and C-AF shortcomings of the original and pushes the envelope even further to truly provide professional photographers and multimedia producers with a capable, high-performance DSLR alternative. Excellent image quality, top-notch performance and all-around fantastic build quality and features makes the E-M1 II worthy of consideration for those upgrading from the E-M1 or moving from another mirrorless camera or a DSLR. Read about all the details in our Olympus E-M1 Mark II review!


Nikon D3400 Review

24.2mp | 3.1x | $497
The Nikon D3400 combines great image quality from its 24-megapixel APS-C sensor with a user-friendly design and good, reliable performance across the board. Some of its capabilities may be lacking, particularly with regard to continuous autofocus, video and its new SnapBridge support, but compared to its peers, the D3400 proves to be an excellent entry-level DSLR at a great price. While not without its share of shortcomings, find out why we still voted it the Best Entry-level DSLR for 2016 in our Nikon D3400 review!


Leica SL (Typ 601) Review
image of the Leica SL (Typ 601) digital camera
24.2mp | Non-Zoom | $7,450
The Leica SL is a thoroughly modern, professional full-frame mirrorless camera with superb build quality, an outstanding EVF, great image quality (from raw files) and surprising performance. Not only can the Leica SL capture 24-megapixel stills at a blistering 11 fps, it can record 4K DCI and UHD video as well. While it's true there are only a few native lenses for the SL at this time, the camera is compatible with well over 100 existing Leica lenses via adapters. But like every camera, the Leica SL has some deficiencies and drawbacks, not to mention its very steep price tag. Read our Leica SL review to find out if it's worth the investment to you.


Pentax K-70 Review
image of the Pentax K-70 digital camera
24.2mp | 7.5x | $619
Ricoh's Pentax brand has made a name for itself by providing enthusiast-grade features at aggressive, entry-level pricing. The Pentax K-70 follows in that tradition and offers an unbelievable amount of camera for very little cash. But that's not to say that it's perfect: We had concerns about its wireless communications and movie autofocus in particular. So should you buy one regardless, or should you look elsewhere for your next DSLR? Find out now in our in-depth Pentax K-70 review!


Panasonic GX85 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 digital camera
16.0mp | 2.7x | $698
The Panasonic GX85 comes close to offering the ideal blend of image quality, functionality, speed and size in our book, packing a ton of advanced features and performance into a compact, well-built body, all at a fair price. The camera produces crisp images that are competitive with other 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds cameras, captures excellent 4K video, and overall performance is impressive, making it an attractive option for beginners and enthusiasts alike looking for a small but powerful interchangeable lens camera. Is this the perfect compact mirrorless? Read our in-depth Panasonic GX85 review to find out!


Canon EOS M10 Review
image of the Canon EOS M10 digital camera
18.0mp | 3.0x | $449
Canon's first true entry-level mirrorless camera, the EOS M10, combines good image quality with a user-friendly design and great touchscreen interface. With that said, its affordable price point does lead to some compromises in terms of both design and performance. There's no viewfinder, limited physical controls and continuous autofocus and shooting performance are limited. It is nonetheless a compelling option for beginner photographers. Read our Canon EOS M10 review for more.
