a6000 faster than OMD E-M1, faster than most DSLR's (if not all). Good job SONY.

Re: ok... then try using a mirrorless...

for studio portraits. it sucks. There's no way around it either. The mirrorless system reacts just like a camcorder, which means the rear screen and evf are worthless in cave lighting. (torches, or modeling lights). What the mirror does, is let your eyes and brain see right through the glass, without electronics pre-interpreting that information. The only way they could fix it is with some sort of active rangefinder setup that had zoom or focal length auto-simulations.

I've used the NEX-7 and A77 successfully in studio-type shoots. I've found that in some low light situations that I'm able to frame and focus with the NEX-7 better than it would have been with a DSLR. In addition, the EVF and read LCD give a better idea of what the final picture will look like than with an OVF.
