Somewhere on the streets of New York 79 year old photographer Louis Mendes with his Speed Graphic camera is laughing at those who claim a mirrorless camera is too heavy to carry.

Louis mostly hangs out in front of B&H, I see him there all the time. His camera setup draws lots of attention and some business for him. He’s old school, but doesn’t laugh at or demean modern technology.

I've known Louis for 15 years now and your response is not even close to what I said.

Who has “claimed a mirrorless camera is too heavy to carry”? They are lighter than other cameras. Notwithstanding your relationship, I doubt Louis has come across anyone who said that, let alone laughed at them.
