At the end of every month, we take a quick look at the most popular cameras among our readers. How do we decide which cameras are the most popular? We look at our sales data to see which cameras have sold the most. This month, Sony reigns supreme thanks to the camera that keeps on giving. The Sony a7 III. There are, however, a few surprise inclusions in the list this month. Find out what were the most popular cameras for March were after the break.

Sony a7 III

In our review, we said:

“During my testing with the Sony A7 III, I found the autofocus to be positively fantastic. The Sony A7 III, along with the Sony 55mm f1.8, were able to focus in near darkness.”

Fujifilm XT4

In our review, we said:

“The Fujifilm XT4 is a prime example of how good a camera can be when camera manufacturers listen to customer feedback. As the old adage goes, “Give the people what they want.” With the X-T4, that’s precisely what Fujifilm’s done. The outgoing X-T3 was already a very capable camera (we gave it Editor’s Choice for a reason). The XT4 packs even more under the hood with the addition of in-camera image stabilization, a fully articulating touchscreen, and a larger battery.”

Sony a6400

In our review, we said:

“The Sony A6400’s image quality is on par with results we’ve seen out of the A6300 and A6500. Images are sharp, with lifelike colors that are rich and vibrant. For the audience that they’re catering to, the JPEGs at least will be very worthwhile.”

Olympus OMD EM5 Mark III

In our review, we said:

“All things considered, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III is a solid performer. While it may not have the latest and greatest tech under the hood, the sum of all of its parts culminates in a pleasant shooting experience overall. The EM5 Mark III’s autofocus is quick and accurate, the weather resistance is top-notch, and the image stabilization is arguably one of the best in the industry (having a smaller sensor helps).”

Ricoh GR III

In our review, we said:

“One of the best things about the lens on the Ricoh GR III is the sharpness of the lens. It’s great even at f2.8. Combine this with the details that the sensor can render and there is no reason to complain. If anything, the images look like bleeding-edge sharpness and a bit like older Rokinon lenses when it comes to output.”
