Re: Are Full Frame SLRs Obsolete?

The mirror will die some day but the need for larger sensors will remain IMO. Sony goes the right way with the A7/A7r. They offer finally all the good stuff about mirrorless and the best sensor technology at the same time.

Image quality of even 4/3 sensors is today as good as FF was a couple of years ago but DOF control will always be a reason why people demand large sensors.
Try to get a blurred background with 24mm equivalent lens on eg m4/3. Nearly not possible but effortless on FF (if you got a fast prime).

I was for years anxious about seeing the OVF disappearing one day. Today I am relaxed about it. Since the latest EVF generation I am looking forward to smaller bodies with less dust in the finder but the same or even better viewing experience.
