Better hurry and sell your 5D2
In reply to Benna78, Sep 30, 2012

It's rumored at canonrumors the 5d2 will have a big price decrease this week. The used 5D2's could drop $200+ in a blink of an eye. Just a matter of time before the 6D is released.

Now to your questions.

You have nothing to worry about. The mirrorless market is going nowhere anytime soon. People crave small cameras and the offerings are only getting better.

Nikon and Canon have opened a can of worms with the "affordable FF" camera. This is just the beginning. They will continue to get a little cheaper, and smaller.

With Sony releasing the RX1 they will have created a new market and many of the other brands will eventually follow.

Relax with the 5d2 becoming obsolete. The 5D2 will still be great a few years from now. Sensors are improving DR, ISO performance, MP's, etc. But the actual IQ at lower ISO's will barely change. 5D1's still take great images in good light. The IQ in the 5D3 barely improved compared to the 5D2. And as you know lenses and good shooting techniques play a huge part in actual IQ.
