Re: The Economist article on mirrorless cameras

Interesting read, thanks for the link! I think that mirrorless is the logical future of serious cameras. But I also find that it is only recently that we have seen products that are ready for prime time. NEX-6 was close, but is held back mainly by the poorly designed firmware. I still love my '6 though. A6000 completely closed the gap to a prosumer dSLR IMHO. I expect that sales will continue to improve. As for pro cameras, the A7 range is the first stab at that segment. They still need to improve AF speed and get many more lenses developed. In one or two generations, I believe that they will be very competitive in the pro segment as well. CaNikon and Pentax better have something good and mirrorless in their pipelines, or they will go the same way that Kodak went...
