Top 15 Best Selling DSLR Cameras 2017

I switched from point and shoot camera to a  DSLR back in April 2015, when bought an entry level Canon Rebel T5 camera. I'm using this camera to the date, most of the photography featured in this website is done with this model.

There is a good saying a photographer needs to upgrade his/her gear just only he/she is outperforming existing gear. For me, I feel it's time to make another switch, from crop sensor to the full frame body. And as a Canon person I'm looking exclusively on latest Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, but it comes with a pricetag of about $3,500.. on the other hand I might go with previous model (Canon EOS Mark III) which now is just under $3,000. 

On the other hand, if you are planing to purchase your first DSRL camera, in this article I have listed Top 15 Best selling DSRL cameras of 2017 available on Amazon. Most of the models are entry level cameras, but there are few in this article which actually is used by pro photographers, like Canon EOS 5D Mark or Nikon D750 FX and even a mirrorless camera from Fujifilm X-T2. I'm personally familiar with two photographers using Fujifilm mirrorless cameras. Seems a hot trend for year to come.
