Re: Why you love your DSLR

They are simply tools for capturing images; no "love" here. Just an appreciation for a good piece of engineering.

I'm a photojournalist and like the idea of mirrorless cameras in theory, but they don't seem to be "there" for reliable pro use yet. No flamers, please. I know some pros are using other designs, thanks. DSLR's have instant visual and tactile feedback, a VAST array of lenses and accessories, large and rugged enough for professional banging around, long battery life, superb image quality, and a mind-bending array of shooting options.

Sometimes I wish they were smaller and/or lighter.
