versatile: turning with ease from one thing to another.

Everyone knows that FF is more versatile, but the mirrorless people will not agree, they feel the need to justify their purchase. A phone camera may be good enough, a mirrorless may  be good enough for your application but you give up versatility for size and portability but no mirrorless person would ever admit that.

Really?   So which purchase am I justifying?   Apsc? used a few of them from a few brands, mirrorless?  Only have the Q now but will be purchasing some of  m/43, Nikon 1 and more apsc AND FF mirrorless. (note it IS mirrorless not sensor size and that may well include FF mirrorless).

Not all cameras are the same or have the same versatility regardless of sensor size or TYPE of camera.....and it also comes down to waht the USER wants it for as to being versatile for them.

No pro in his right mind would choose mirrorless unless there was an overwhelming need to have a smaller camera because he knows the FF will get better image, have better noise control, better featuers and lenses. But mirrorless people cannot accept this. So why bring it up to them and remind them they have an inferior camera, their only response will be to dispute you with some dumb argument and then go back to it is smaller. Not worth the time.

No PRO in his right mind would choose a camera that will not get the job done for him, In fact many pros will use the LEAST versatile setup for them IF it gives the best results.

Best IQ (all being equal), does not mean most versatile.

Pro video shooters ARE using mirrorless GH2 and GH3 I think and for stills too (weddings ETC)

Many Pros might only have 2 or three lenses because thats all they need for what they do.

A camera being used is a LOT more versatile than one at home....if it gives good enough results for what is wanted so be it.....or should "everyone" junk all there equipment and buy medium format.?
