Could this be the last year we see DSLR cameras amongst the Cyber Monday camera deals? That might sound sensationalist, but the truth that the deals on traditional interchangeable lens digital reflex cameras are thin on the ground.
The DSLR vs Mirrorless debate has raged for a decade now, but we are at a point now where no new DSLRs are being launched - and the number of options available new is declining. And declining fast. True, Pentax is still making DSLR models - but even so it is doing little more than refashioning old designs.
But this year, at least, we have found some decent DSLR deals, for those who prefer an optical viewfinder - or just want to get going with a camera system that has lots of affordable lenses…
