Many of us, may have thought of, or have purchased a different format camera depending upon the intended use.. but with the entry of mirror less, there are some who have them now but are being teased with the capability of a full dSLR...

or dSlR people, who mainly because of bulk, feel mirrorless might just be the ticket for what they want..

i did a quick and dirty poll (my first one, so as a newbie, i should have added a choice of 'not moving.. staying where i am'

but anyway... it does reflect something..

TOTAL NUMBER OF RESPONDANTS:  71

MOVING FROM SLR TO MIRRORLESS  : 59

MOVING FROM MIRRORLESS TO SLR  : 12

frankly i imagined maybe a 1/3 moving to mirrorless. i'm a bit surprised at these numbers ?

Are you ?

Since your poll was done on this forum, I'm surprised mirrorless didn't do better. Your results suggest that 17% of respondents have mirrorless buyer's remorse.  Of course, your sample is too small to draw any meaningful conclusions.

P.S.

I should have asked the question:

"If you are moving from Mirrorless to SLR, did you opt for a BETAMAX rather than VHS back in the 80's ? "

(just wondering.. if 57 of the 59 people (like me) bought a Beta recorder .. then mirrorless is DOOMED !")
