Best Full Frame DSLR Camera 2017 Buying Guide (Cheapest and professional Canon, Nikon, Sony DSLR)

After having discussed the best models of APS-C DSLR cameras, here is our buyer’s guide for digital full frame models.

Full frame cameras have a 24×36 mm format sensor which provides superior image quality; they are also built to provide good long-term performance. This past year, no revolutionary technology has been released as far as full frame cameras are concerned, except for the fact that sensors without low-pass filters have become a standard feature. There is however a race going on, a race for increased performance and Nikon is currently offering no fewer than five full frame DSLR cameras! Competition is fierce and it is leading to the development of ever more powerful cameras.

Sony A7 vs A7ii, what’s the difference?

Late last month, Sony silently launched the latest full-frame mirrorless camera A7II. I can’t help but admire how well Sony kept this innovation confidential before its release. Sony is perhaps one of the few companies that could afford to launch a new model of a full-frame camera at a yearly rate. Actually, it’s no wonder that the A7 series has been selling so well. Their integral market performance since their release is surpassing Sony’s expectations. The latest A7II may have caused some confusion for those planning on purchasing one– Sony α7II and Sony α7, which model is better?

Before that, we all regarded the three models of A7, A7R, and A7S with different positioning as the three brothers of the full-frame SLR cameras in the Sony A7 series. However, the latest A7II is the brother with the closest kinship to A7. Even so, between these two brothers, which one should we choose? This is a question we need to ponder. Since the A7II was just launched, currently its single body price is $1698. The A7 has been marketed for more than a year and features a higher performance price ratio, but its current price on Amazon is only $1298. With that price difference of $400, we can almost buy another Sony A6000. So what justifies this gap of $400?

Firstly, the A-mount lenses can be adapted fine with the LA-EA4 adapter. Here's Jason Lanier shooting with "the beercan" on…
