Nikon and Canon both released new mirror-less cameras and since, my inbox has been blowing up with questions about this camera. I find it interesting the inevitably when a major announcement like this happens, there arises two camps. One is usually the DSLR purists who would never conceive of using a mirror-less, and the other are proponents of the system whom embrace it and love it.
Like anything that has a high turnover rate, technology is no different. These innovations, regardless of the camp they come out of, move the industry forward. Personally I shoot a DSLR and I am content with that. I do not plan on purchasing a mirror-less at this time as it does not fill a need I currently have. That may change in the future. I have friends who shoot mirror-less and knock out great images.
Lets look at the specs and see how the mirror-less cameras stack up:
Relatively similar specs for the most part. One can make the argument, depending on what you tend to use the camera for, that one is better that the other for a specific task. As one of my instructors pointed out to me back in the days of film, the final image has nothing to do with the equipment, but rather the person behind the camera. There skill, passion, choices when exposing for mood, composition is all that gets put into the photograph and that makes the picture. I always remember that when arguments over this camera or that camera being better comes up. At the time of the posting, 5,970,000 Google search results comparing the two cameras existed. Is it for you? That is a question only you can answer for your photography.
