From the highest-resolution dSLR to the biggest zoom range to date, 2015 is starting to look like an interesting year for cameras.

Canon's G3 X, a 25x megazoom with a 1-inch sensor, makes this list in spirit; the company only issued a development announcement thus far, but it sounds intriguing. Another high-probability, rumored model we eagerly anticipate includes the replacement for the Sony A6000.

We'll update as new ones are announced, so check back often.

Price: $800 (with 14-42mm lens)

Availability: June 2015

The outlook: If it lives up to its performance claims of 6 frames per second with autofocus, that plus its 4K video capability would make it a really attractive alternative to an entry-level dSLR for family photography.

Price: $900 (with 16-50mm lens)

Availability: June 2015

The outlook: While it's on the expensive side for its class, it does incorporate Fujifilm's unique hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder and the company's APS-C-size X-Trans CMOS II sensor delivers excellent quality for this price class.

Price: $430

Availability: June 2015

The outlook: It's (currently) the world's smallest 30x zoom with an electronic viewfinder, incorporating the pop-up EVF design of the higher-end RX100 models.

Price:
5DS: $3,700
5DS R: $3,900
Body only

Availability: June 2015

The outlook: Who can resist the chance to see if putting 50 megapixels on a full-frame sensor turns out to be a good idea? The two models differ by the antialiasing filter: the 5DS R cancels its effects, while the 5DS doesn't.

Price: $850
Body only

Expected ship: April 2015

The outlook: In a departure from its typical Rebel design, Canon adds a slightly more upscale model to the line that inherits some design updates from higher-end EOS models. And that's on top of the significant updates Canon made to both of its midrange consumer dSLRs.

Price: $500
10-30mm PD lens kit

Expected ship: TBA

The outlook: This J model looks and operates more like a "normal" camera than any of its Nikon 1 predecessors.  It has the fast burst rate that is the hallmark of the series -- 20fps with autofocus -- and a flip-up display for selfies and groupies.

Price: $600

Availability: April 2015

The outlook: 83x zoom. How could you not want to know if it will solve all your telephoto dreams?

Price: $1,200

Expected ship: April 2015

The outlook: It's a minor update over the D7100 -- some improved processing for better continuous-shooting performance and built-in Wi-Fi, plus a few other tweaks. But the D7100 and its predecessor are excellent cameras, so we expect the same of this one.

Price: $900
With collapsible 18-50mm WR lens

Expected ship: March 2015

The outlook: In contrast to many competitors, Pentax builds its lower-end dSLRs like tanks. This will be one of the cheaper weather-sealed models on the market.

Price: $800
With 16-50mm power zoom lens

Expected ship: March 2015

The outlook: Samsung squeezes most of the high-end performance components from the NX1 into the more consumer-friendly NX500.

Price: $1,100
Body only

Expected ship: February 2015

The outlook: Cramming it with its most current technologies, Olympus makes the E-M5 Mark II sound very attractive to photographers looking for a camera more advanced than a point-and-shoot but smaller than a dSLR.

Price: $1,000
With 18-55mm VR II lens

Expected ship: February 2015

The outlook: While it's not a particularly notable update -- the addition of a touchscreen is nice -- Nikon's entry-level dSLRs are generally well-performing crowd pleasers.
