Mirrorless Camera Database

With so many different cameras and some companies now on their fifth generation of camera, it's difficult to keep track of which are out there and how they differ. This database gives you the key parameters on all the mirrorless cameras, including things like current firmware versions. I use the shorthand m# after a model name to indicate followup versions; for example M6m2 means M6 Mark II. 

The list below includes all cameras that are current production models (in bold, below) plus those out-of-production but often still available on the used or stock sell-off market (not bold, below):

Why are the byThom estimates sometimes off? Thom makes these estimates early in the year, and other factors can impact the final numbers (e.g. the earthquake impacted 2016 numbers).
