2017 Roundup: Semi-Pro Interchangeable Lens Cameras

DPReview.com - Latest News - Fri, 05/19/2017 - 5:52pm

What do we mean by Semi-Pro?

Within this category, you'll find some of the most capable cameras the industry has to offer. The Semi-Pro name doesn't indicate that they're below the consideration of professionals, though. Quite the opposite: it means that their price and performance makes them attractive to a range of enthusiasts, photographers who make some money from their shoots and professionals who earn their livelihood with their camera.

Due to the fuzzy line between semi-pro and pro, we've made the decision to not include very high-end full-frame (e.g. Nikon D5, Canon 1D X Mark II, Sony a9) and medium format (e.g. Pentax 645Z and Fujifilm GFX 50S) cameras in this roundup.

All of the cameras in this price range use full-frame sensors. And while most of them are DSLRs, there are also several mirrorless options as well. Simply put, there is something here to satisfy just about everyone who is willing to pony up the requisite funds. Read through to see what makes this segment so cut-throat, and what innovations are driving this tier forwards at a remarkable pace.

The models covered in this roundup are:

Read on to see which cameras we chose as best-in-class!
