Canon EOS 7D Mark II
Every month we update our Most Popular Gear lists with the cameras and lenses – as evidenced by your page views – are indicative of the most popular gear. I decided to take a look at the most popular gear last month to see if I could discern the reasons behind the popularity of each camera. And speaking of the most popular gear list, you can find the list on the bottom-right side of the homepage.
Last month the most popular cameras were (in order):
  1. Canon EOS 7D Mark II
  2. Canon EOS 5Ds
  3. Canon EOS 5D Mark III
  4. Canon EOS 6D
  5. Canon EOS 5Ds R
Looking at the list, it makes sense that the EOS 7D Mark II sits at its apex despite the hype surrounding Canon's ultra-high resolution cameras. The 7D II features 10 frames-per-second, a 1D-X-like AF system and dual memory card slots at a great price (especially with the current rebates).
Canon's groundbreaking, ultra-high resolution DSLR featuring a traditional low-pass filter takes the #2 spot – the EOS 5Ds. Announced in February, the 5Ds preorders were finally being sent out late last month. The interest regarding this camera was huge as people wondered, "How could I use the extra resolution?" Keep in mind, though, "interest" does not necessarily mean "purchased." The 5Ds (and the 5Ds R) represents a significant investment for most [if not all] photographers, meaning curiosity regarding the 50.6MP sensor – as opposed to preorder intent – likely drove much of that traffic.
Sitting at number #3 is the workhorse camera of professionals everywhere (and the camera that Bryan and I have used most since its introduction), the EOS 5D Mark III. Sitting below the 1D-X and now more afforadable than ever, the 5D Mark III is an excellent, well-rounded full-framer. It may be slightly long in the tooth (relatively speaking), but its excellent feature set makes it a highly relevant camera for a wide range of photographers over 3 years after its introduction.
The 7D II sits within reach of far more budgets than the 5Ds/5Ds R, a feature it has in shares with the #4 camera in our list – the EOS 6D. Even though the EOS 6D was announced in late 2012, the fact that it's Canon's least expensive entryway into the world of full-frame photography makes it an especially attractive upgrade for those who started out with a Rebel/xxD camera.
Rounding out the top 5, the EOS 5Ds R – Canon's highest-resolution, sharpest full-frame camera – appeals to those looking to capture the finest details in their scene (we think landscape photographers are a big portion of this group). The increased risk of moiré and false color makes this 5D variant a little less popular than its nearly identical twin featuring the traditional low-pass filter.
So there you have it, the top 5 most popular cameras as indicated by your page views. We hope the site's resources, including the DSLR Camera Reviews and Camera Specifications Tool, have proven useful in determining the camera that best fits your photography needs.

From the Nikon Europe YouTube Channel:
Shooting abandoned places can lead to surprising results. You'd never guess David's shot 'The Mothership' is actually Linnahall: a former concert hall in Tallinn, Estonia. Check out what he has to say about it and take a closer look at the shot here
From the photographer, David de Rueda:
"Linnahall is a former concert hall in Tallinn, Estonia. With a two minute exposure, I could reveal the architecture of the place, which otherwise sat in darkness. The central framing gives the photograph its power, drawing the eye right to the centre. To me, it almost looks like a spaceship."
To see more of David's work, check out "Project Spotlight: Abandoned spaces."
B&H carries the Nikon D810 and AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED Lens.

Canon officially began celebrating the EOS 5D's 10th anniversary earlier this year and now they've published an introspective video narrated by members of their camera design team.
The EOS 5D launched in 2005 and was immediately successful because, up until then, full-frame sensors were limited to elite, expensive pro-grade bodies (Canon 1-series). With each successive iteration, Canon has introduced key advancements that kept the camera line relevant for its target markets (high resolution, video recording, advanced AF, etc).
It's interesting to look back and see how the 5D line has grown and matured into what it is today. The original 5D was a relatively stripped down camera with a full-frame sensor, somewhat akin to an EOS 6D today – capable of producing great images, but without many of the features that pros require.
Today, the 5D series sits squarely between the market it used to serve and the highest end, 1-series market (both in price and features) with a notable exception – resolution – where the 5D bests its top-tier big brother. With each feature-packed iteration the 5D has appealed to an even broader market; I think that's a big reason why the cameras have been so popular over the past decade. I think it'll be interesting to see where the lineup goes from here. [Sean]
B&H carries the EOS 5D Mark III and the new 5Ds / 5Ds R DSLR cameras.
Update: Canon has also published a video interview with developers of the 5D cameras.
