    Hi

    Why do you say "worse glass in case of the Sony"?

    I have Canon and Sony and Nikon

    Of the 3, the Canon lenses are the worst

    The Sony Zeiss lenses are excellent

    I think you are being biased

    This is not fair to new photographers

    You should argue or look at this as CAMERA as a Photographic device whatever it may be not just be looking at just one variety a photo taking device.
    A good photo's 45% you, 45% practice & 10% equipment. A bad photo share the same ratio.

    Hi David,
    I agree with much of your sentiments in your well-written post however you probably need to qualify your statement regarding 'worse glass in case of the Sony'. Perhaps you mean worse in terms of selection and not quality? Many of the newer FE selections are world class, if not best in class, such as the FE 55/1.8.
    Or perhaps you meant worse in terms of weight since many of Sony's higher quality glass aren't small or light comparatively, and may negate the weight savings in the body. Add in some additional batteries and DSLRs might even come out ahead?

    But where I'd disagree is carrying weight and bulk does matter. But this is largely not a mirrorless vs DSLR issue.
    There are advantages that mirrorless brings but I think too much emphasis has been placed on just the reduced camera depth.

    Camera & Audio/Hifi industrial almost same same ..............in the near future.

    DSLR is like LP -> only a selected few will want to play them.
    Mirrorless is like CD -> slowly also losing ground to below.

    Mobile phone & all the rest of the super small cam is like digital music that can be downloaded/copy (legally & illegally).

    All the major LP/CD shop closing down 1-by-1 along with mass mkt brands making the eqpts to play them.

    Simple fact is cameras, like many things made by man, have constantly evolved from the very beginning...camera obscura..pinhole camera, Niepce and Daguerre and box cameras, then Talbot and his calotypes, then Kodak and the camera for the masses, and then the twin reflex cameras and Barnack and his 35mm mini rangefinder, and then the slr, and then digital and all of it's formats, the camera phone, then the mirrorless cameras... Guess what people still use all of these different cameras to this very day.

    Another thing...as far as I can tell from researching it pretty thoroughly too I might add...to this day nothing will out resolve a Daguerreotype!

    No one is spared. Cameras (mirrorless included) going the way of the fax machine?
