Ever since I joined DPR the Mirrorless customers bragged that MILC was the future and it’s better than DSLR’s at everything ,we’ll it’s been almost a decade and still none of pros have switched when it matters most, the Olympics is here again and still MILC cameras are NOT and I repeat NOT found at the Nikon Booth in Tokyo, i sure plenty of pros tried one out of curiosity just to see how it performs only to quickly put it back down and pick up their trusted D5-D6.

Not all pro photographers shoot sports. I know PLENTY of professional photographers that have switched to the Z6 and Z7s. The olympics are being shot with the D6 because it focuses and tracks signifigantly better than a ML (and I imagine the battery life being an issue as well, shooting THOUSANDS of images a day).

I could shoot a Z7 for all my stills, portraits, and landscapes.  But when I go shoot my son's baseball games... I bring my D4.
