Why did you get into the mirrorless Sony systems?
Jan 7, 2014

I what your prime reason/reasons were to get a Sony NEX or Sony A7-series cam. I can come up with a number of reasons, but what are yours? You may also answer this if you are making up your mind but have not chosen yet: why are you considering one of these cams over a DSLR?

Thanks for responding!

The size and weight of the DSLR I had. I ditched it in favour of a NEX.

The NEX/A7R was meant to be a companion to my DSLR, but I soon found the DSLR started to gather dust. I sold it or will probably do so soon.

I still am happy to use my DSLR, this is and probably will remain its companion.
