Owning both FF DSLR and Mirrorless - the future?
Jan 8, 2013

With the lightweight features of mirrorless, I'm proud to say I'm happy to be investing in mirrorless system, whenever a new lens comes out in the market (as it should), I'm always hesitating whether to save more bucks and spend wiser into the realm of full frame dslr's...

Many of my friends who have been toying around photography for a long time will always look down on our new mirrorless, yeah that means looking down on myself for walking down this path, despite my efforts of trying to make clear that mirrorless does its work just fine as would a full fledge prism DSLR...

The best of both worlds, to me, and at least for today, is to invest in both systems, my take (although a subjective one) would be the Samsung mirrorless for its truly excellent and cheap native NX lenses, and the Canon 6D full frame with the legendary 24-70 F2.8.

But whenever we try to save some bucks for future investment, you will always look back to the initial basic choice of investments you've made, which is the right one to go for with a limited budget? You don't want to invest in something that will be things of the past in couple of years, if you wanna invest in FF, the crazy FF lens price will kill, the weight will slow you down, the size is bigger, but the superior focusing system, great ISO range, accessories support with its fully matured market, 3rd party availabilities, flash supports (although I'm a flashless guy), extreme configurability (i.e. astrophotography is possible for 30 mins exposure) are all top notch... as for ergonomics, I'm fine with either DSLR or small mirrorless... EVF, liveviews or OVF, doesn't matter either gets the job done perfectly.

So just interested to see how you guys doing with Samsung, would you rather get another copy of FF just to have the best of both worlds, or rather stick with one single system? For limited budget users like me if you're forced to choose between the two lol....  and of course we're talking bout a lifetime interest here...
