How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

If you're a pro shooter with a collection of Canon lenses, you'll want to add the full-frame Mark III to your collection, despite its $3,000 price tag. If you're not, that price might give you pause, despite the camera's ability to capture great shots in virtually all lighting conditions, fast and accurate autofocus system, and excellent video quality. The Mark III may be worth the money, but if you're not a pro, you may be better served by a more modest model, like the Rebel T4i, which goes for under $1,000.

Canon's G1 X Mark III is its first APS-C sensor compact

It has an eye-watering $1,299 price and less powerful zoom than before, though.
