08 Jun 2016 Roundup: $1200-2000 ILCs part 1 – Crop-Sensor

Source: DP Review

For those wanting to step up from entry-level to midrange ILCs, there are many things to consider, including the choice between a DSLR or mirrorless camera, what sensor size suits you best, how important video is to you, and of course the lens system. 

While full-frame cameras typically offer superior low light image quality and more control over depth-of-field, crop-sensor cameras are extremely capable in their own right – and (usually) more compact and less costly.  

We’ve split the $1200-2000 ILC marketplace into two segments – cropped sensor cameras (which you’ll find in this roundup) and full-frame options (coming soon). 

There’s a lot of variety in this group of crop-sensor cameras. Two of them are DSLRs and five are mirrorless. While most use APS-C sensors, the Olympus PEN-F and Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 use smaller Four Thirds sensors. Some of these cameras are aimed toward still shooters, while others are more video-centric.

Here are the competitors in this crop-sensor round-up:

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Fujifilm X-Pro2 Fujifilm X-T1 Leica T (typ 701) Nikon D500 Olympus PEN-F Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4
