On article Adapted Lens Talk: Readers' Showcase and new forum! (195 comments in total)

Sony have contributed to photography by not only introducing some smallest full frame bodies but also with a mount enabling the use of the great majority of all existing lenses since the '20s even those for rangefinders only.

The next model will have no rangefinder, no EVF, no LCD but will cost $3.000 with no lens.

After seeing this one I bow with respect to the holy souls of those engineers in heavens who designed the original Leica M3.

"Mirrorless" has been a great convenience for lens design. Most of the mirrorless lenses are still retrofocus design to some degree, however the lens designers do not need to take into account the mirror box anymore. So, the register distances are minimal, like rangefinder designs, more compact sizes, allowing also the use of a wide range of adapters for the majority of the brands on the market, new or old.. Better lenses for the mirrorless bodies will be realized, especially those shorter than 60mm, than those specifically designed for the DSLRs. (The 25/2 Batis, for instance, seems to be better than any available 24 or 25mm lens..)

BobYIL: Why Mirrorless? In very dark situations, looking through the viewfinder of an A6000 set to ISO 6400 is something you will never experience with the optical rangefinder of a Leica or viewfinder of a Nikon with prism, including the digital ones. (From someone who have been using both since more than 50 years)

Rooru S: Try one of the new designs like the A6000... no disturbing lag, at 6400 little noise (grain) at dark places but almost no grain if there is a bit of light, refresh rate very fast, manual focus by peaking works OK in low light, tried with 35/1.4 Summilux, set the peaking level to high. I am very satisfied with the progress they achieved. (Try 11fps for steet photography, you feel like HCB capturing every tiny expression changes ;-p )
