The 19 Most Popular Compact System and Mirrorless Cameras with Our Readers

Earlier in the week we revealed the DSLRs that were best selling among our readers over the last few months. While DSLRs are still the most popular type of readers among our readers this last quarter has seen a big rise in the number of you using compact system cameras.

In fact if we combined the two lists we’d now see compact system cameras in the top 20 cameras bought by our readers with the Sony Alpha a6000 and the Sony Alpha a7II both making that list.

What is remarkable about this is that the newly announced Sony Alpha a7II is not even released yet and it makes the list purely based upon pre-order levels!

Also an indication of the growth of sales in the compact system camera class of camera is that today we’re listing 19 of them while last time we created this list we only saw enough sales to justify making it a list of 9 cameras.

Here are the most popular compact system cameras among our readers!

Note: we’ve only included cameras with interchangeable lenses in this list. While other cameras like Fujifilms X100 series are sometimes classified in this way we’ll include them on a future list with other fixed lens cameras.
