Re: I will believe it when I see my first mirrorless that’s not in a store


I see MILCs amongst hikers - people trekking and shooting out in the national parks.  (That's one reason why I bought one.)  Also backpack travelers and the like -  people conscious of the weight they're carrying for any length of time.  Still plenty of DSLRs too.

I don't think you'll see anyone doing wildlife with a MILC.  The main reason would be lack of long lenses.  Mirror-less systems just haven't developed that far (like Fuji which only goes to 200mm) and even if they can use adapted AF DSLR lenses (like Sony) their long lenses are very expensive.  That may change of course - Fuji does have a very long zoom due out in late 2015.  Maybe the others do too.  We all be wiser in a few years time.

Cheers, Rod
