Re: In Defense of the DSLR

I was looking at all the mirrorless systems to pickup one for when I don't what to carry a lot of gear but there are still many issues that stopped me

1)EVF not in love with it but can live with it so not a big issue

2)AF slow sluggish is a big no no for me

3)lens selection very limited

4)battery life people don't mention this enough but it's a big issue for me 300-400 shots means that I would need 2-3 batteries fully charged every day when traveling to feel comfortable and the 2 things that create this problem are 1 being small the other the EVF. I don't know why we're not seeing any improvment in batteries from such a long time

These thing will eventually be ironed out but will they replace DSLRs totally not in the near future me thinks
