SeeRoy: Of course DSLRs focus better and are therefore better for wildlife photography...
Unfortunately only for those wildlife photographers who don't walk far from the car.
For those of us for whom all kinds of photography involve walking long distances in the countryside, lugging along a backpack plus extra clothing, plus food, plus drink, adding 20 lb+ of DSLR and lenses (600 F4 anybody?) is a PIA.
Trading the DSLR benefits for increased range and mobility will often produce better photographic opportunities.
But of course by now the pix are usually secondary to the gear and notional "IQ" - in most senses of the acronym.

a 600 f4 weighs the same on a mirroless body.
a 650-700 grams A7 with extra batteries weighs 300 g less than a D810/5Ds/r.

Jetfly: I'm still waiting for a Zeiss lens which offers autofocus capabilities for Nikon mount. Just like Batis for Sony FE.

Sony probably have a deal with Zeiss, not to offer AF to canon/nikon.

The marketing dep at Zeiss are under new management...
recycling their zf glass all over with creative new product design
and 'improved' prices.

MP Burke: I haven't been able to find out how much this camera weighs. Will it set a new record for a 35mm dslr? Now, how about trying to make a digital slr (for those who want a 35mm sensor but don't want high speed motor drives) that is no bigger and heavier than the film slrs of the 1970's or 1980's?

And the bank...

itaibachar: Good for Canon!
But I'm a bit worried/disappointed about the small area the focus points cover. They're cramped into the center of the frame, very limiting our composition options to a centralized subject.
Me not like...:-(

If your subject is the torso yes, but I like to focus on people's heads, and they are not located at the center of a typical frame. I really dont understand this design feature. It is handicapping an otherwise great tool.
