In your and similar threads we've had scorn poured upon mirror-less camera buyers -

  • 'poor thoughtless people'
  • 'gullible and undemanding'
  • lacking in clear thought

and so on over the last few days.

The really funny thing is that many of us who have bought these systems have also bought (and may continue to own) a Pentax DSLR.  It's interesting that we seem to be clever, discerning and demanding photographers when it comes to the Pentax and apparently switch to our other personalities like Jekyll and Hyde when we look at our second system.

No-one needs photography.  It's not essential to life.  Even pros could do other work.  It's an indulgence of an affluent society and we do it because we like it.  Period.  There is no other reason anyone buys a camera.   Buy what you like and enjoy it.  But please hold the personalisation - mirror-less buyers have made their choice and it may surprise you to find that they're a largely happy bunch over in their forums, turning out some images as good as any made elsewhere.

Regards, Rod
