that said, I think we are several years (3-8 years or more) away from mirrorless cameras that perform (viewfinder/AF) in low light like a DSLR.

Which DSLR performs as well in low light as a Sony alpha a7s?

so you are saying your EVF doesn't lag in low light?


what about the difference in AF speed in lowlight? it's pretty huge compared to the difference for a DSLR.

these are just facts, don't be a fanboy.

Anyone can see that you specialize in civility, but I think you misread my post. I simply asked one question. I stated zero opinions. Indeed, I don't even own a Sony alpha a7s---very few people do---so we can't answer your question about EVF.

A single question combined with zero opinions is hardly proof of being that civil phrase, "a fanboy," is it?

Jerry - don't bother responding to JonTaffer. He has no interest in debate, his only purpose is to inflame via illogical arguments and condescending, patronizing jabs. We've had more than a few of this type of poster in this forum. Most likely, he's just another Nikon/Canon FANBOY, obviously insecure with the fortune invested in soon-to-be-antiquated gear.

This brand of dinosaur-ism was seen when digital began to overtake film. The "old school" became threatened, panicked, then became nasty. Mirrorless is a new brand of photography and there will be many who refuse to acknowledge it.

This response of his says it all:

not talking about ISO, I clearly said that.

no one has really cared about ISO since the nikon d3.

Ignore them, they eventually go away.

funny considering I just dropped $2k on an a6000 system

and Ive said I'm not attached to my gear, because they are just tax deductible tools

also to me, the nikon d3 was the first camera I felt ok just to set to AutoISO and just shoot. coming from film, I do admit my threshold for grain is higher than some. but we can all agree 2012 tech and up shoots clean enough to not care about ISO.

since you wanted to lob a personal attack my way, perhaps I should do the same?

well rather than play your game, I'll just remind you to mark my words.
