Re: Decide for yourself......
In reply to RonFrank, Aug 28, 2013

Yes, each of us has to decide what is important to them and what they want to shoot. The dSLRs I have used certainly achieve focus fast, like instantly, while my mirrorless takes longer, and often wont even get focus. On the other hand, when I compare the same shots from the two, the focus is always sharper on my mirrorless. If you have a camera that you can adjust microfocus, and are inclined to do that, I guess you can get there (except for zooms that have focus shift with focal length, or with stopping down), but I prefer my mirrorless, for what I do. If I was taking a lot of pictures of things that moved, I'd likely be more inclined to use a dSLR.
