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

DSLR by the buckets and the odd phone used by a tourist but no ML cameras

I go on photo charters to take pictures of trains, along with the normal brace of full-frame Nikons and Canons, a few Pentaxes,(inc mine) a number of DX Nikons a few film cameras, I have seen a Fuji XT-1, Olympus OMD EM-5 and Sony A7 (my, that thing is small!) plus a Nikon 1 of some description and a Panny Micro4/3 used for video. All touted by middle-aged British chaps!

No idea what this says about the future of OVF vs EVF technology! I'm not sure the EVF is quite there yet, but the prospect of proper hybrid viewfinders intrigues. Exposure simulation, focus peaking, "blinkies" in a viewfinder would all be really useful, whilst for fast moving action, the OVF seems to have advantages, as well as not consuming much power!
