Pentax K-70 Review
image of the Pentax K-70 digital camera
24.2mp | 7.5x | $647
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

16.0mp | 2.7x | $733
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

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.


Canon T6 Review

18.0mp | 3.1x | $499
As the company's most affordable entry-level DSLR, the Canon T6 shares much with the earlier T5. It differs, though, in providing the wireless connectivity necessary to get your photos onto your phone (and from there, to Facebook) thanks to in-camera Wi-Fi connectivity. It also sports a noticeably better display. But can super-affordable pricing make up for its now rather long-in-the-tooth imaging pipeline? Find out in our in-depth Canon T6 review!


Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review
image of the Fujifilm X-Pro2 digital camera
24.3mp | Non-Zoom | $1,699
The Fuji X-Pro2 has big shoes to fill. Its predecessor proved very popular and was one of our favorite cameras back in 2012. The long-awaited successor improves upon the X-Pro1 in essentially every meaningful way. It packs in a higher-resolution 24-megapixel sensor, a hybrid AF system, faster performance and improved ergonomics. Its high ISO performance is superb for an APS-C sensor and its hybrid viewfinder offers something for everyone. It might not be revolutionary in the same way the X-Pro1 was, but the X-Pro2 is nonetheless an excellent camera that offers great image quality, performance and usability. Read our Fuji X-Pro2 review for all the details!


Canon 1DX Mark II Review
image of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II digital camera
20.2mp | $5,999
Sure, it's big, it's heavy, and it's expensive, but as the adage goes, "you get what you pay for." And with the Canon 1DX Mark II, you're paying for the best Canon DSLR for sports, action, wildlife, or photojournalism. The 20MP resolution might not suit those commercial photographers who need mountains of megapixels, but for everything else, the Canon 1D X Mark II is right on the money. Images look great, and dynamic range is excellent. High ISO performance is also top-notch, and the versatile autofocus and incredible burst shooting performance will not disappoint or slow you down. Read more in our in-depth Canon 1DX Mark II review!


Nikon D500 Review
image of the Nikon D500 digital camera
20.9mp | $1,797
Nikon's new top-of-the-line DX DSLR, the D500, is the camera that D300S shooters have been waiting several years for. Sharing many features with the flagship D5, such as the 153-point AF system, 180k-pixel RGB metering sensor and EXPEED 5 imaging processor, the Nikon D500 offers very good autofocus and high-speed imaging performance. The new 20MP APS-C sensor may not offer the same low ISO dynamic range as the D7200, but it delivers excellent high ISO performance. The 4K UHD-capable D500 is a multimedia camera as well, and its touchscreen functionality is very good. This is one of the best DSLRs Nikon has made and definitely its best DX camera to date. Read more in our Nikon D500 review.


Nikon D5 Review
image of the Nikon D5 digital camera
20.8mp | $6,497
The Nikon D5, as a flagship DSLR, delivers high-end performance across the board. The ergonomic and well-designed camera body is both large and heavy, but with great size comes great power. With its 20.8-megapixel FX sensor and 153 AF points, the Nikon D5 is ready to capture high-quality, sharp images across a wide range of ISO sensitivities. The D5 is also the first full frame Nikon DSLR to include 4K UHD video recording, but make no mistake, this is a camera built for high-quality stills imaging performance and that's precisely what it delivers. Read all about it in our in-depth Nikon D5 review!
