Over the next week, we will be conducting our Reader’s Choice polling. We are really curious to see what the best and worst of 2013 were in your eyes. 

Today, we have a good one for you, one of the busiest sections of the camera market, crop sensor cameras. Specifically, we are interested in what you all think was the best crop sensor camera body, w/ interchangeable lenses, from 2013.

I am not going to spend a ton of time breaking down each camera, because this post would end up being 10 pages long. So here are the options, broken down by the manufacturer, for you to choose from.


  • Canon 70D
  • Canon T5i
  • Canon SL1




  • Olympus OM-D E-M1


  • Pentax K-3

*I listed the most popular 2013 crop sensor cameras in the market. If I missed your favorite one, let me know in the comments below.

Voting Rules

You may select up to three (3) cameras as your best of 2013 choice(s). This is simply because we understand that these sorts of questions are rarely black and white and this gives you the opportunity to show your support to multiple cameras. It also makes the voting a bit more interesting.

If you only want to vote once, go ahead, but you have the option to select up to three(3).
