    Remember I am comparing MILC systems so for me that number is still not a whole lot of options. Or should I say Fuji has relatively fewer options

    And by the way, these are forums where we exchange ideas and opinions.

Adobe was far to slow to develop plugins to handle the x trans files. As of now, they have more or less caught up.

    I have had almost every format and Love M4/3rds! It is not a good low light choice, but for everything else I love it. The new pro series of lenses is amazing and the basis of my switch from Nikon. The EM-1 is a fantastic body for my purposes, but I rarely go over an ISO of 1250. It all comes down to your needs.

    Here are 2 Fuji X-10 pictures that I captured this afternoon after work.

    For a camera that I can put in my jacket pocket and, being only 12 Mpixels, I like what I can get from it. It's a great lens that's for sure.

    Re: Is it a good choice - Mirrorless

    I'm really going to go out on a limb here, and say I'd recommend the D610 or a D750 or even a D7100 instead of a mirrorless camera. I say this because I see you as often a wide angle shooter, and those FX cameras would serve you well I think! But even the D7100 would be a great upgrade from the D5100! But unless you want to upgrade regularly, I think the mirrorless might not be the best choice, since they are steadily changing trying to match DSLRsand then pass them. But it hasn't happened yet, in my opinion.

    But they are fun and easy to carry, and even take very good photos! Eventually I believe they will be the best thing going, but I also believe it will be a good while before that is the case, while they milk every dollar out of us for all the models of both mirrored and mirrorless cameras the can produce until they have to put it all together! Lol

    Well there is my two cents worth my friend! Lol

    In my case, Bill....I wanted a smaller footprint with my camera and lenses. I went mirrorless and do not regret it. I just didn't like the bulkiness and largesse of the FF DSLR stuff. They are great cameras, but not if you want to lug all of your lenses around with you. The mirrorless Sony I have and my lenses take up less than half of a backpack that barely held my lenses when the were FF DSLR. To each their own, and I am not saying one is better than the other, but if you want to shrink your camera equipment footprint and know that the quality won't suffer from it.....then go Sony FF Mirrorless.

    Re: Is it a good choice - Mirrorless

    I got into MILC when someone offered me a Nikon J2 with the 10-30mm lens for $200CDN. I thought why not. I ended up with a 18.5mm prime and then a 30-110mm both of which I find are very good lenses. Then I got the FT-1 adaptor and now I am able to use the rest of my Nikkor lenses with it too. With my 85mm f1.8, it translates to 230mm f1.8. Can't complain about that. The AF is also very fast on the Nikon 1 series. I'm happy with it. It's probably not as good as a Fuji or Sony but with the option of being able to use my other lenses is a big plus. At least for me.
