Re: In Defense of the DSLR

Ultimately, I think the DSLR will be relegated to a niche product, along the lines of rangefinders. Many photographers are nostalgic, and that alone may be enough to keep a limited number of SLRs on the market. In the long run, I think advances in electronics will not only put mirrorless cams on par with DSLRs, but will surpass them across the board for performance. The pros will switch to mirrorless when they feel that point has occurred for them personally.

Of course, in the present day, predictions of the demise of the DSLR are premature. Just like predictions of the demise of 35mm film were premature in 2000.
