The Best and Worst Gear of 2019, According To DPReview

Eye Autofocus DPReview's Chris And Jordan Review What They Think Is The Best And The Worst Gear Of 2019.

DPReview’s Chris and Jordan review what they think is the best and the worst gear of 2019.

Canon doesn’t score very well in Chris and Jordan’s hit lists. They classify the Canon Rebel SL3 as “worst camera of 2019”. At least the EOS R ranks first in the category “most improved camera via firmware”.

The Sony a7R IV is DPReview TV’s best camera of 2019, and the Panasonic S1H best hybrid camera of 2019. The Tamron 35mm f/1.4 is their best lens of 2019. And here is the video about best and worst gear of 2019:
