The 2017 World Press Photo named its winners a few days ago. The camera winner is definitely Canon, in particular the EOS-5D Mark III. Canon cameras were used in 20 winning photos, compared to 10 photos for Nikon, the nearest competitor. Canon is the preferred brand in the world of photography, be it in sports, wildlife, landscape or the press.
It is not surprising the EOS-5D Mark III was used so often. I have picked it as the best value, full frame DSLR four years in a row. You can see how it compares to the Nikon D810 and the Canon EOS-5Ds cameras. But without a doubt, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is the best camera for sports and wildlife photography.
I will be traveling to Japan on a wildlife photo tour very soon. You can follow my travels on Facebook and Twitter. See my equipment bag and works on MichaelDanielHo.com
