Re: Why did you choose mirrorless ?

I went from a D40 to a NEX-C3 in 2012. The reasons were manifold:

  • Value- I think I got my C3 kit for $300. No DSLR kit at the time came close.
  • Video- IIRC the C3 was better than cheap DSLRs at the time for video. Particularly Nikon.
  • Size- I was buying the camera for a trip. C3 kit was tiny and inconspicuous.

Most of my moves have been driven by availability and affordability. Only other kit I might have gone with at the time would have been a stretch to a Sony SLT body. That with a 3rd party 2.8 zoom and the Sigma 30 1.4 and a body upgrade to the A68 would probably have been enough to hold me down until today.
