Canon resurrects its P-for-popular designation. Where does this leave the P-for-professional market?

10 Best Camera Lists (click bait)

8

Generally speaking, I have a love-hate relationship with these lists — you know the sort, the ten-best corkscrews ever invented, the 20 best nail clippers to let loose on your toes. But sometimes I do click to see what’s up……
