There is no longer a need for you lug your heavy camera gears around with the countless mirrorless options out there. What’s more? These picks may even rival the best digital SLR cameras out there.
No matter if you are just starting out, looking for something to advance to, or even thinking about shooting professionally with your mirrorless camera, we have just the thing for you.
Go shutter-crazy with ease with Fujifilm X-T10
If you are just starting out, you want to be sure to get one that is affordable, easy to use, but still makes it easy for you to advance with a wide spectrum of lenses. The Fujifilm X-T10 fits all that criteria and is great to start with for you can easily get access to Fuji’s great X-mount system if you should need new lenses to advance without any additional accessories.
Do note that while the X-T10 is compact, with great image qualities, it still lacks weatherproofing and is not the best when it comes to low-light conditions since the higher 1SOs are JPEG only.
Other notable mentions are the Sony Alpha 6300 and the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II.
Get amazing quality in a compact Sony Alpha A7R II
With the Sony Alpha A7R II’s amazing resolution (42.4 megapixel!) and full-frame sensor, you can be sure that every detail is well captured. Even at high ISO, noise is controlled to the minimal for sharp, beautiful images. It’s truly a mean machine in a small package – perfect for all your everyday, travel, and perhaps even assignments’ needs.
However, its autofocusing is still not as fast as we would like; it would be best if you are well-versed with manual focusing before picking this up.
Other notable mention is the Fujifilm X-Pro2.
Shoot with the crème de la crème of mirrorless cameras – Leica M (Typ 240)
The Leica M (Typ 240) is one the best you can ever get in a mirrorless camera; it is also one the priciest one out there. But if money is not an issue to you and you are looking for something that mimics the luxury of classic film cameras with amazing quality, this is your best bet. Its full-frame sensor, scratch-resistant display cover (made from sapphire glass), splash and dust resistant, is what you are truly paying for.
There’s honestly nothing to complain about this Leica M other than its exorbitant price.
