DP Review “best camera over $2500” is WRONG
1

So the title gives no upper limit, but in fine print in the guide they restrict it to $4000 or less “to keep the cameras comparable”. Result, they exclude the most important high end camera introduced this year: the Sony A1. That makes the guide much less comprehensive than it should be.

If you want to keep it like that, then fix the title! Call it “Best camera under $4000”. Stop pretending that it’s all cameras over $2500, because it isn’t.

Maybe you need a buying guide for cameras over, say, $3500, or thereabouts. Include the Canon 1DX, the Nikon D5 or D6, maybe even Leica.

The current guide does people a disservice in omitting the A1, because it can be the perfect option for people who might have been buying two or more Sony’s until now - it’s clear people are replacing an A7R and an A9 with an A1. So at least mention the A1 in this current guide!
