  1. On the other hand, there are advantages of mirrorless over DSLR other than size.


    Autofocus during video on mirrorless is better, EVF let you preview white balance and exposure, and peaking mode for focusing manual lens on Sony Nex.


    Large amount of high quality M42 lenses are available on used market and can be adopted easily on mirrorless because of the small flange distance.

  2. The main advantage of mirrorless is the size, they are pocketable if you use pancake lens, but once you put a larger lens on, they lost the advantage of being small. The combo feels very front heavy unless the camera has a large grip like Panasonic GH series and they're not pocketable just like DSLR even though they're lighter.


    DSLRs currently have more reasonably priced decent prime lenses and ultra wide zoom is another factor for me to go back DSLR.

  3. These articles are very helpful if you're deciding to buy a camera system. He made a very logical choice on Canon even though he knows that Canon sensors are not up to Nikon/Sony performance.


    I always like his articles/blogs because he is in a unique position to test many copies of the same lens and extensive experience with service centre of different manufacturer.
