I do not understand the HATRED for mirrorless cameras on this forum.

Are you saying there aren't any DSLR trolls who mirrorless?

One particular annoying category of trolls are from m43 forums who go around various forums trolling about their m43 gear.

Every day you can see a thread on m43 forum as to how much their gear is good enough compared to some dslr. Inferiority complex i would say.

While I don't make it a point to keep track of the number of posts by m4/3 fanatics on the m4/3 forum, I actually think they have decreased over the past year or two. Some of the worst offenders have disappeared (banned?). There also used to be more DSLR trolls posting on the m4/3 forum. Perhaps appointing moderators has improved things somewhat.

Regardless, there are still too many DSLR & mirrorless trolls who seem to feel the need to bash the other format. IMO, these aren't happy people.

On a more positive note, I currently don't see a single thread on the first pages of m4/3 forum or Open forum with a title touting mirrorless over DSLRs or vice versa (although there is one speculating that one or more companies will exit the mirrorless market).
