What Mirrorless?
In reply to rattymouse, May 19, 2013

As a Canon DSLR and M4/3 (Panasonic) user, I think that the biggest obstacle in mirrorless proliferation is their total absence from retailers shelves. I was looking for an update for my Panasonic camera, but neither BestBuy, nor 3 specialized camera stores in my city (population over 600,000) sell any Micro 4/3 cameras. Nobody sells Fujifilm X series. Only one model of Sony mirrorless was at Bestbuy, and a couple of Nikon 1's.

I do understand retailers who don't want to get stuck with cameras that nobody wishes to buy. But, from talking to friends and coworkers, public is well aware about mirrorless cameras, but nobody will buy a camera without holding it in their hand, and comparing to Canikon in the other hand.So, unless you live in the city where stores like B&H or Adorama are located, you are out of luck.

The eternal "a chicken or an egg" problem...
