Within this category, which includes body-only cameras costing $2000 or more (based on MSRP in the US), you’ll find some of the fiercest competitions the camera industry has to offer. This includes cameras with 50 or more megapixels geared perfectly for studio shooters, 4K-capable cameras camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or for straight-faced film makers, and all-arounders that can easily split their time between pro-level still shooting and high-end video capture.

All of the cameras in this cost range use full-frame or larger sensors. And while most of the inclusions are DSLRs, there are also several mirrorless options as well. Simply put, there is something here to placate just about everyone who is willing to pony up the dough needed. Read through to see what makes this segment so cutthroat, and what novelties are driving this tier forwards at a remarkable pace.

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III
  • Canon EOS 5DS (R)
  • Nikon Df
  • Nikon D750
  • Nikon D810
  • Sony Alpha a7S
  • Sony Alpha a7S II
  • Sony Alpha a7R
  • Sony Alpha a7R II
  • Sony SLT-A99
  • Leica SL
  • Pentax 645Z

Note: We purposely excluded the Nikon D4s and Canon EOS 1D X from this roundup as we have the impression the capabilities of both cameras put them in a class of their own.
