Sony A7 II Review

24.3mp | 2.5x | $2,000
Sony has yet another winner on their hands with the A7 II. By addressing some of the design and ergonomic quirks of the original model, as well as providing a notable technological achievement with their 5-axis image stabilization -- and some subtle, yet worthwhile, performance enhancements -- the Sony A7 II is a more matured, more well-rounded camera and therefore an even more enticing option for those wanting full-frame image quality but not a full-frame DSLR-sized camera. Read more in our in-depth Sony A7 II review!


Nikon D810 Review

36.3mp | $3,027
The 36-megapixel Nikon D810 has some pretty big shoes to fill, replacing the much-loved D800 and D800E with a single model. Taking the best of both, this detail-devouring beauty has even greater per-pixel resolution, a wider sensitivity range, greater performance, more capable video capture, and more -- but it also now has competition from rivals Canon and Sony. How does it fare in this new reality? Read our in-depth Nikon D810 review, and find out!


Panasonic GM5 Review

16.0mp | 2.7x | $899
The Panasonic GM5 takes what was great about the GM1 and improves upon it immensely. While still keeping a lightweight and compact design -- that's practically pocketable even with the 12-32mm kit lens -- the Panasonic GM5 manages to includes a fully-functional, albeit small, electronic viewfinder. Creative lighting options are expanded by the addition of a hot-shoe and external flash support, plus, ergonomics and customization are subtly yet noticeably improved. The image quality remains unchanged and impressive, and performance is still excellent with slight improvements in some areas. Read our in-depth Panasonic GM5 review for all the details!


Nikon D750 Review

24.3mp | 5.0x | $2,760
Placed between the D610 and D810, the Nikon D750 borrows from both models for a fantastic all-around multimedia DSLR. With a 24.3MP full-frame sensor and fast EXPEED 4 processor, the Nikon D750 captures outstanding, highly detailed images with excellent dynamic range and high ISO performance. The Nikon D750 also has class-leading burst shooting capabilities and excellent low-light AF. With an articulated LCD screen and other high-end movie features, the D750 is also a great option for multimedia producers and videographers. Read our in-depth Nikon D750 review for all the details on this all-around multimedia DSLR!


Canon 7D Mark II Review
image of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II digital camera
20.2mp | 7.5x | $1,959
Five years after the original 7D debuted, the Mark II version is here, and with it, a host of upgrades and new features. Catering primarily to sports, action and wildlife photographers, the Canon 7D Mark II borrows many features and performance specs from their 1D-series models, but at a more affordable price. The 7D Mark II looks to continue this heritage with an even more flexible and powerful 65-pt. AF system, Dual DIGIC 6 processors, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, improved build quality and more advanced video features. The Canon 7D Mark II is a big upgrade over the 7D in many ways, though the Mark II does falter in a few areas. Read our in-depth Canon 7D Mark II review for more!
