Re: Proffessional interest in Mirrorless/M43 overstated...

If I was at a wedding I would expect a professional to roll up with at least full frame camera. I would not be impressed if he could not handle the weight of the equipment or was experimenting with a smaller sensor.

Full frame mirrorless would be fine but not a small sensor just because he was too lazy to carry heavy kit. Even then the Sony A7 which is the only contender is a bit of a prototype at present so that would not make me happy. No disrespect to Sony intended.

I am currently at the Detroit Auto show (not as a photographer). What I happen to notice here is that proffessoonals interest in mirrorless here is close to non-existent. By a huge majority pros here shoot Canon or Nikon DSLRs. Mirrorless is not even carried along as a secondary camera. While that was to be expected even newspaper journalists who are not photography pros don't use mirrorless cams regularly but choose to use cameras like a Canon G15 or a Superzoom instead. Any idea why that is the case? So far I have spotted one Olympus PL5 and that was it.
