Re: Mirrorless vs DSLR - Why I switched to a Nikon D500

But I can't deny how nice it is to look through the lens again. Seeing everything crystal clear..

Once I looked through the viewfinder of an SLR I was hooked and I haven't been able to give that up.

I want to try some of the tricks of the EVF.  I'm thinking about a smaller EVF to carry when I don't want to carry the larger DSLR, but I realize that compromising on the size of the DSLR also compromises the usability.

I was visiting with a nephew at Thanksgiving and discovered that he was now using an EVF.  He had gone from his Sony DSLR to a new Sony full frame EVF.  Looking through the viewfinder of his camera, it definitely did not pass my test.  I was looking at him across the breakfast table and couldn't see the detail in his face that I could see through my D7200 at 3 times the distance.  But then the old TLRs that we used to use were much worse than this.
