The Best-Selling Mirrorless Cameras for May 2013


The Best-Selling Mirrorless Cameras for May 2013

Whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5KK took first place in the month of April, May has seen the rise in popularity of the NEX-6L/B, the best-selling mirrorless camera of the month. This sleek camera from Sony has a 16.1MP APS-C sensor, 10 fps shooting, and a fast hybrid AF with phase-detection. Though I’ve never used the NEX-6, I thoroughly enjoyed testing out its predecessor, the NEX-5 (see full review here), so this is definitely a camera I’d like to get my hands on someday.

In second place, we find the Lumix GX1, which has been selling like hotcakes thanks to the numerous price cuts its received over the month – over 50%. It features a 16MP sensor, full HD video, Precision Contrast AF System, and up to 12800 ISO.  As I stated last month, this is one of the best compacts to buy for point-and-shoot users who want to step up a level.

In third place, we see a new entry in the top three – the Sony NEX-7, otherwise known as the current flagship for the NEX series. (This will change, however, with the release of the NEX-9 and 7n in the near future.) While still expensive, it has received a significant price cut, making it more accessible to pros who are on the hunt for a second body for vacation/street photography purposes. It features an amazing APS-C CMOS 24.3 MP sensor for superb detail and amazing enlargements, and OLED EVF, 10 fps continuous shooting, and excellent full HD movie capabilities.
