Best Full Frame Camera Of 2013? | SLR Lounge Reader’s Choice

By Anthony Thurston on December 30th 2013


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. 

Yesterday, we asked you what you thought the best crop sensor camera of 2013 was. Today, we want to know the best full frame camera of 2013. The field is considerably smaller this time. 2012 was a big year for full frame releases, but there are a few standouts this year too.

As with the crop sensor poll, I will not be breaking down each camera option. Due to the smaller poll size, we have opted to include the Sony RX 1 (even though it is a fixed lens camera) and include the A7 and A7R as separate entries (they are different cameras after all).  So here are the options, broken down by the manufacturer, for you to choose from.




*I listed the most popular 2013 full frame cameras in the market. If I missed your favorite one, let me know in the comments below (comments count as votes for anything I miss in the poll.)

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).

    Where is Canon in the list. No Canon full frame even mentioned for best of 2013. Say it isn’t so

      Sorry, but it isn’t so :P The last Canon Full frame release was the 6D in late 2012, therefore its not eligible for this poll.
