MILCs are light on the scale, but DSLRs are light in operation
20

I'm a Sony FE guy, but man, using my wife's 5D4 more, I kind of miss DSLRs

Yes, in hand, it's a big chunky monkey. But that melts away once you start shooting. AF is like 20/20 vision. You point, it focuses. No fuss. Shutter action is perfect and so fast. Buffer seems infinite. It's just a joy to shoot with.

A7R2 by comparison is small and light... but a bit slow to respond. Buffer fills up fast even with a much slower frame rate (to be expected wtih the bigger files I guess). Shutter action is mushy. AF is precise but not fast. Granted, I had the A7III and it improves a lot on these issues, but it doesn't close the gap. You don't shoot the exact moment; you shoot close to it. This works OK for the kind of shooting I do, but I could see it being a dealbreaker for people shooting action.

Point is. if the world is moving to MILCs, that gap has to be closed. Until then, there will always be a place for DSLRs.
