Now that all the big brands finally have APS-C mirrorless cameras. Or, well, now that Nikon has finally caught up with everyone and released an APS-C mirrorless camera, which one is better?
Well Chris and Jordan of DPReview TV took each brand’s top four APS-C mirrorless cameras and tested them all to see where each shines and where each… well, kinda sucks. In the running, the Sony A6600, the Fujifilm X-T4, the Canon EOS M6 Mark II and the Nikon Z50.
All four cameras are popular with those who own them, so you might think picking a winner might not be easy. Obviously, however, there is a big difference in price between each of these four cameras, with the Nikon Z50 being the cheapest at just under $ 800 and the Fujifilm X-T4 demanding more than double at $ 1,699. for the body only.
So while these represent the best APS-C mirrorless camera of each brand, and although those who own them generally like them, there will be some notable differences between them in terms of performance and features compared objectively and ignoring the price.
The pair rated the cameras on a number of factors, including handling (Sony came last in this one), display (Sony last, again), autofocus (Sony wins the one here, of course), picture quality, battery life, and video capabilities. Some of the test results might surprise you, while others will be really “Well, duh! ” moments.
As for the final overall verdict… well, that probably wasn’t unexpected, but the cameras are basically listed in order of purchase price. Personally, I think that’s a pretty good correlation. This means that whichever brand you choose, you get what you pay for.
Do you agree with their assessment?
