Full frame digital cameras have been a dominant force in the imaging marketplace for quite some time, and as we begin 2020 “the year of perfect vision,” mirrorless cameras have clearly surpassed DSLRs in terms of new product introductions and overall sales figures. The reasons aren't hard to fathom.

Nikon just launched the D780, a 24.5MP full frame (aka FX-format) DSLR that's the follow-up to the now ancient, by camera industry standards, D750 from 2014. The Nikon D780 is equipped with a 24.5-megapixel backside-illuminated full-frame CMOS sensor that has just slightly more resolution than its six-year-old predecessor, which used a 24.3MP sensor.

It's taken Canon a while, but the company has finally introduced a new flagship professional DSLR: the EOS-1D X Mark III, which adds a bevy of new photo and video features while keeping the camera's resolution essentially the same as its four-year-old predecessor. The 20.1-megapixel full frame Canon 1D X Mark III is the successor to the 20.2MP 1D X Mark II from 2016 and while both cameras look similar, there are many changes "under the hood" to the new Mark III.

Like many photographers these days, I often carry a compact mirrorless camera while traveling, intent on lightening my load. But I recently had an opportunity to hit the road with Canon’s new mid-sized EOS 90D DSLR, which boasts a 32.5MP APS-C image sensor and a host of advanced features. And, frankly, the Canon 90D performed so well that I didn’t begrudge the added weight of carrying a DSLR.

This is just a "development" announcement for the D6 and Nikkor 120-300mm lens from Nikon, so details about this new flagship DSLR and telephoto zoom are scant.
