Re: Mirrorless DSLR - pretty crap

"Pretty Crap". Is that an oxymoron or is there such a thing? "Mirrorless DSLR" is a misnomer too, if you think about what SLR means.

I bought my wife an Olympus Pen, mirrorless E-PL2 with 2 kit lenses for $300 new during a fire sale diirectly from Olympus. It's a great camera for what she wants to do with it and for the price.

Until now I've been shooting with the Olympus DSLR E-5 and 10 excellent lenses. The new Olympus direction with only mirrrorless cameras like the E-M1 (~$1500, body only) is not for me, so I'm switching to the Nikon D800.
