And now the last installment in the July 2017 series, we are zooming in on a DSLR vs Mirrorless tet-a-tet with 35mm full frame sensors! The focus is on made-for-digital mirrorless cameras, meaning no rangefinders in this particular comparison.

Where Does The Data Come From?
This chart uses the data collected for the 35mm FULL FRAME digital cameras as set forth in that post. No new data was collected for this post.
THE 35mm FF COUNT (Number of Cameras)
|35mm FF DSLRs||15|
|35mm FF Mirrorless||8|
A 3-WAY FULL FRAME COMPETITION
As you can see in the chart below, this is a game for Canon, Nikon and Sony. Sony is the only one that has both a 35mm full frame DSLR and mirrorless cameras. The only other manufacturers playing at this sensor size is Pentax (DSLR) and Leica (SL).
Since there are two DSLR makers focusing on this segment, it’s not a surprise that DSLRs are almost doubling the mirrorless cameras. The prices, as you can see below, are fairly interleaved. We even have a mild surprise, the Leica is not the most expensive camera in this chart 🙂
The DSLRs in the chart below have their name highlighted in yellow. You can see a larger version of the chart by opening it directly and zoom and zoom as needed.

This is the first time we have introduced this comparative chart!
