Top Pick – Fujifilm X-T2
We will get a lot of hate for this from Canon and Nikon fans, however, given the price/performance ratio of this camera you can’t do much better than the Fuji X-T2. Fuji pays homage to the classic 35mm style body and it is stunning. With 325 autofocus points (169 of which offer phase detection), the AF speed is at .06 seconds. 4k video, weather-sealed body, dual-sd cards and lockable dials all at a reasonable price for a professional DSLR make the X-T2 our top pick.
Entry-level Professional DSLR – Nikon D7200
If you want a great DSLR that is on the borderline of being professional, then the Nikon D7200 is it. This is the perfect camera to learn the advanced features of a DSLR without throwing yourself out into the deep-end. This is the transitional camera from novice to professional photographer. It has great battery life, a built-in flash, Wi-Fi and lightweight.
Best Low Light Professional DSLR – Canon EOS 80D
A great performer in dim light is the Canon EOS 80D. It has improved low luminance performance to EV -3 and is compatible with most EF lenses. The 45-point cross type AF array is fast and sure-footed in low light, besting the 70D in most situations.
Best Full Format FX Professional DSLR – Nikon D810
DSLRs that take full frame photos do not crop the image like their DX counterparts. This is crucial when you look through the viewfinder and want exactly what you see. The Nikon 810 has the highest megapixel count out of all of our picks at 36.3 MP. The extra megapixels allow for some great edits in photoshop without degrading the quality.
Best Work Horse DSLR – Canon EOS 6D
Ever wonder what camera the wedding photographer is shooting with? This is the one. If you want a tried and true over-performance camera than the Canon EOS 6D is it. From dimly lit weddings to high action soccer games, you will own THE camera that the majority of professional photographers employ to get the job done.
