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

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

It appears that the month of April wasn’t too different from the month of March in terms of the mirrorless camera popularity contest. Panasonic and Sony continue to vie back and forth for first place, but for this month, Panasonic takes the gold with the Lumix DMC-G5KK, a compact system camera with a 16MP sensor, AVCHD Full HD (1080p) video recording, Venus Engine 7FHD, and more. The most attractive aspect of the G5KK is the price reduction – nearly 50% off the original price!

In second place, we have the classic Sony NEX-6L/B, which remains one of the most popular models around. (In fact, whenever I’m in a touristy place, it is the one camera I tend to see the most around people’s necks. That and the NEX-5!) It has a 16.1MP APS-C sensor, 10 fps shooting, and a fast hybrid AF with phase-detection.

In third place, we find another popular model from Panasonic, the Lumix GX1. It, too, has received a huge price cut – over 50% – which is probably why so many enthusiasts are rushing to buy it. It features a 16MP sensor, full HD video, Precision Contrast AF System, and up to 12800 ISO. For point-and-shoot users who want to step up a level, this is the compact to buy!
