Dpreview reviews the Mirorrless Flagships

DPreview did a side-by-side (by side) comparison of the flagship mirrorless cameras in an entertaining video.

I think it's really safe to say that no matter what your choice is, you really can't go wrong in the market today.

However, special kudos to both Canon and Nikon for catching up, and according to this review, overtaking the Sony mirrorless juggernaut. Something I know some people would have bet money on it never happening.

Dpreview published a handy reference comparison between the three flagship mirrorless cameras.
