    Canon EOS 5D Mark III

    Best general-purpose pro dSLR

    Nikon D500

    Best budget pro dSLR for shooting action

    When your budget (or back) can't stretch to a big pro body, the D500 is a great compromise. The fastest APS-C dSLR camera under $2,000, it delivers excellent photos, has a speedy and accurate autofocus system and 4K video.
