Aspiring professionals and semi-pro photo hobbyists who want more out of their dSLR in terms of performance, functionality and ruggedness would want to invest in a mid-range dSLR. The best mid-range dSLR cameras are a step-up to the entry level dSLR's and are for those who cannot splurge on the all-out pro cameras , but nevertheless need top-notch image quality.

The best mid-range dSLRs are the semi-pro models which offer some sophisticated features from the entry level cameras, like improved sensor size, faster continuous mode shooting to capture action shots, higher resolution LCD screen, a more advanced viewfinder and HD video recording facility. Typically available in the $1000-$2000 range, they justify the steep price tag with some nifty features such as enhanced metering system, better low-light performance, quicker autofocus with more focusing points also coupled with advanced dust clearing systems to protect your camera.

The best mid-range dSLR cameras offer some of the sophisticated features only found in professional models at a better price. The leaders in this segment are of course Canon and Nikon with their multiple mid-range models but the performance of Pentax and Sony are not too far behind.
