Re: Anyone here left mirrorless for DSLR?

I got a NEX-5n a couple of years ago.

It has decent to excellent image quality up to ISO 1600. At ISO 200 it's identical to my 1D Mark IV.

Shot with Canon FD 85mm f1.8 wide open at ISO 1600.

It's difficult to operate even with my girl-sized fingers. Every adjustment is two or more tiny button presses and I'm constantly forgetting them. I'm also accidentally pressing the dial sometimes just handling the camera.

I don't expect much in fast lenses for these cameras. The Canon FD 85mm f1.8 and 55mm f1.2 dwarf the camera. These lens also dwarfed the A-1 and AE-1 bodies back in the day, but I don't think consumers will accept that form factor now. There will be only be slow zooms instead.
