Which camera should I buy?

We recommend: The Nikon D7100

Picking between these five very good cameras was no easy feat. They all feature incredibly impressive feature sets, and strong image quality. Unfortunately, we have not had the chance to fully test the Canon EOS 7D Mark II or the Sony SLT-a77 II. When our full set of studio tests is done we will revise this roundup and depending on the results, our final recommendation/s may change. But for now the Nikon D7100 is the camera to beat.

Honorable mention: Sony a77 II

Sony SLT-A77 II

We have not had the chance to finalize our testing of this model, but all signs point to it being a very capable camera, and a serious rival to both the D7100 and Canon EOS 7D II (which is also pending a full review). Once our studio and real-world testing is complete we will revisit this roundup and if necessary, update it accordingly.
