The Mirrorless Buying Guide: The Best-Selling Models for March 2013

Here we are at the end of another month, and it has been an extraordinarily good one for Sony. For March 2013, four out of five of the best-selling mirrorless cameras on Amazon all came from Sony’s NEX collection.

The first two are actually the same model – the NEX F3 – in two different colours. With a $100 price reduction, this camera makes a very appealing purchase for those interested in dabbling in mirrorless technology without spending a patrimony. The NEX F3 is endowed with a 16.1 MP sensor, full HD movie shooting, a tilting LCD screen, and of course, an interchangeable lens.

In third place comes the Sony NEX 6L/B, another camera which has received an $100 price slash. Unsurprisingly, this powerful little mirrorless was in the top five last month as well. It comes with a 16 MP APS-C sensor, fast hybrid AF, 10 fps shooting, full HD video, a bright OLED viewfinder, an interchangeable lens, and WiFi capabilities.

The fourth place entry is the Sony NEX 5RK/B. Like the NEX 6, this camera comes with a 16 MP APS-C sensor, 10 fps shooting, a fast hybrid AF, full HD movie recording, and WiFi capabilities. The only significant difference is that it is a couple of hundred dollars cheaper than its successor.

Finally, in fifth place, we have the lone entry from Panasonic – the DMC G5KK. It must be feeling pretty lonely up there amongst all those NEXs, but at least it managed to maintain its place in the top five!

My guess is that with the impending arrival of the NEX 3N and 7N, Sony’s older models are receiving a dramatic reduction in price. And there is no better time to take advantage of these reductions than the present!
