As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Nikon D810A is also often compared to pro DSLRs, boutiques and entry-level DSLRs. The Nikon D810A's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the D810 and the Z7) and Canon (such as the EOS 3D and the EOS 5D Mark III)

compared toMirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Nikon D810A compared to other mirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors include: it has a much larger screen (3.2" vs 3"), has a slightly higher resolution screen (1,229k dots vs 1,040k dots), takes significantly higher resolution photos (36.2 MP vs 26 MP), much more lenses available (171 lenses vs 77 lenses) and has a much longer battery life (1200 shots vs 390 shots).

However, on average it records higher quality movies (1080p @ 60fps vs UHD @ 30fps), doesn't record high-speed movies (none vs 120 fps), doesn't have a touch screen, doesn't shoot as fast continuously (5 fps vs 20 fps) and doesn't have a screen which flips out.
