DarnGoodPhotos: 'MILC' really doesn't make sense since no one says 'DSLRC'. And then you have the awkwardness of saying 'MILC camera'.

New to this forum, but a long time SLR/D-SLR user converted to "mirrorless". I just thought I'd join in here as I've been following this thread trying to understand what mirrorless actually entails. I have to be honest but LIVE seems less flawed than mirrorless and less clumsy than MILC. Just as LIVE seems to not hold for DSLRs that can do video, mirrorless doesn't seem to hold for some cameras that are both mirrorless and interchangeable lens capable like the Fuji X-Pro 2. Just saying.

(unknown member): "And in doing so, prompted us to use the term 'mirrorless' for the first time."

Actually you didn't call it mirrorless just yet, it was some time before a common term was to be used. I coined the term Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera "MILC" was the acronym. But mirrorless was much more simple and ended up sticking.

I think SLR never changed even when TLR vanished because it references a feauture rather than a removal of something. Mirrorless is a little different.

wsalopek: MFT is the traveler's choice...esp in the smaller bodies...the small size allows enthusiast photographers to enjoy their craft (by having interchangeable lenses, etc), while carrying far less weight (though some APS-C cameras are very close, if smaller lenses are chosen). Also, if instagram and internet sharing is the goal, MFT is a GREAT choice...why carry something heavier when MFT has MORE than enough IQ for all but very serious work.

Sorry, but I originally fell for the "more than enough IQ for all but..." line. I went from an Olympus E-M10 III to a Fuji X-T20. Why go MFT when you can go APS-C in a smaller size and lighter weight?

Sergey Borachev: I think there should not be any distinction between DSLR and Mirrorless any more in awards. For example, there should be only one award for the Professional Camera, either D850 or A7r III. They do the same job, and there should only be one that is "the best".

I am glad there is no "DSLR Camera of the Year" award.

I agree. I don't get all these different distinctions between cameras these days. The only difference that I can see or feel is whether the camera is smaller or lighter. What do I care if there is a mirror or not in it? If I can get the same quality out of a smaller, lighter camera as I can from a larger, heavier camera, my arms and back will lead me to choose the smaller, lighter camera.
