  1. Nothing can compete with low light with FF.

Personally, I think 645 format blows the doors off of 'full frame'. So your first point is wrong.

You cannot be more wrong. 645 format would get trashed in low light compared to FF 135 DSLR. Pentax 645D maintains 18bit colour depth and 9 stop DR at ISO 1262 while D600 can do the same at ISO 2980.

Jumping to focus speed: m43 can be very fast. Sony NEX has phase detect sites on its sensor to really be as fast as DSLRs. No, I can't agree that mirror less has to mean slow focus.

Can your mirrorless's AF do these?

You complained about cost. Go price a Panasonic G5 kit and then tell me what full frame DSLR you could get for less than triple that price.

To be equivalent to D600's kit lens, M43 lens need to be 12-42.5mm F1.7-F2.2, How much do you think it would cost if it was made?

I'll stop here.

Not having fun?
