A quick chat about my move to Sony. I have always been a Nikon fan, but the temptation of so many features and so much quality in such a tiny package was too great. My first Mirrorless was a Nikon V1, which I really like, but I don’t like the limited lens choice, using an adaptor is not much help as the 2.7x lens factor makes using other lenses impractical, and the proprietary shoe is ridiculous!
I don’t think I would give up my DSLRs yet, I wouldn’t like to be using an f/2.8 zoom with a small mirrorless body, but I can see myself using 2 small bodies with primes.
The debate about Mirrorless vs DSLR has hotted up as the Mirrorless systems have become far more capable. A quick chat about the points to consider, neither system wins hands down, but with the ease that DSLR lenses can be used on Mirrorless, they can work together superbly.
I have use of both systems and in many cases, I still love to use my old Nikon V1, why? Bec
