DPReview has taken a look back at all of the cameras released from 2010 to 2019 and made their own list of the 20 most significant. On that list you’ll find the Sony α9, α7/R and RX100 – all considered some of the most important cameras of the decade. See more of what they had to say about each below.
“When it was released, the α9 was arguably the most capable camera on the market for shooting sports and action, and with new firmware it's only gotten better since then. That Sony managed within half a decade to create a product that rivaled established professional DSLRs is astonishing.”

“DSLRs were the only game in town in 2013, and the α7 and α7R caught Canon and Nikon napping. It would be a full five years before either of the traditional 'big two' came out with their own full-frame offerings and Sony spent the intervening time releasing seven more full-frame ILCs and in the process securing a major share of the full-frame market. With the α7S / II and later α7-series models the company also made major inroads with amateur and enthusiast / independent filmmakers too - a market that Canon is sometimes credited with inventing when it released the video-capable EOS 5D Mark II.”

“The Cyber-shot RX100 was the first of what has turned out to be a very successful line for Sony, and introduced the basic ingredients which have made the RX100-series so popular ever since: a large 1-inch sensor with very high speed shooting capability, a high-quality zoom lens and excellent video features all wrapped up in a genuinely pocketable form-factor.”
