What do we mean by Semi-Pro?

Within this category, you’ll find some of the most capable cameras the industry has to offer. The Semi-Pro esteem doesn’t indicate that they’re below the consideration of professionals, though. Quite the opposite: it means that their price and performance borrows them attractive to a range of enthusiasts, photographers who make some money from their shoots and professionals who earn their livelihood with their camera.

Due to the floccus line between semi-pro and pro, we’ve made the decision to not include very high-end full-frame (e.g. Nikon D5, Canon 1D X Mark II, Sony a9) and medium format (e.g. Pentax 645Z and Fujifilm GFX 50S) cameras in this roundup.

All of the cameras camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or in this cost out range use full-frame sensors. And while most of them are DSLRs, there are also several mirrorless options as well. Simply put, there is something here to write off just about everyone who is willing to pony up the requisite funds. Read through to see what makes this segment so cut-throat, and what novelties are driving this tier forwards at a remarkable pace.

The models covered in this roundup are:

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Canon EOS 5DS / 5DS R
  • Leica M10
  • Leica SL
  • Nikon D750
  • Nikon D810
  • Sony Alpha a7R II
  • Sony Alpha a7S II
  • Sony Alpha a99 II
