The Best and Worst Cameras and Lenses of 2022

2022 has been quite the year for photo gear, with a huge range of impressive camera and lens releases. What has been your favorite? What failed to impress you? This hilarious video discusses the best and worst camera and lenses of the past year. 

Coming to you from DPReview TV, this great video takes a look at the best and worst cameras and lenses of 2022. One thing that really struck me is how this compares to the best and worst cameras of say, 2013. That was right at the cusp of the beginning of the mirrorless era, and some cameras and lenses were fantastic and others not so much. Nowadays, though, it is remarkable just how good both cameras and lenses are. Even the more middling options still perform quite well, easily producing workable images that would have been considered top-notch a decade ago. And then, the cameras and lenses that are "good" are really quite superb and able to tackle just about any conceivable scenario you could throw at them with ease. It is remarkable how far technology has come is just a short amount of time, and that means that photography is more accessible than ever. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
