    Is it a good choice - Mirrorless

    Many members here got a Mirrorless Camera (MILC)

    What is your "Conclusion" Would you but the same MILC again? Which would you like to have?

    I am considering buying a new camera (upgrade) but keeping my D5100.

    Some reason why I wanna upgrade: Faster AF, weather sealed, low light performance, handier for a walk around...

    Hello Micheal -

    Similar to DSLRs, the MILC system, depending on the manufacturer and model of the camera, have their own pros and cons. How important is video to you and how well can you manipulate the RAW files (if that is a factor to you).

    In a nut shell, this is what the general consensus with the current systems.

    Nikon FX big, heavy expensive, best image quality, excellent lens selection, excellent RAW files
    Sony FF light, compact, excellent image quality, limited lens selection, deficient RAW files
    Nikon DX big, moderately heavy, less expensive, very good image quality, sufficient lens selection, excellent RAW files
    Sony APS-C light, compact, inexpensive, somewhat limited lens selection, deficient RAW files
    Fuji big, moderately heavy, less expensive, very good image quality, very good lens selection, problematic RAW files
    m4/3 light, compact, less expensive, very good image quality, excellent lens selection, excellent RAW files

    Micro four thirds = M 4/3. That's the lens mount for the Panasonic and Olympus cameras which are normally 2x crop sensors.

    Re: Is it a good choice - Mirrorless

    Just read gqtuazon's reply after posting mine. This is redundant but here it is anyway:

    @siamthai1, I was debating on getting an FX or mirrorless for my 3rd body but I eventually went with D700. Why D700, because I have two D300s cameras and my grips and batteries work with the former.

    Now why didn't I jump into the mirrorless bandwagon? This is just temporary. My biggest problem is which system to jump into.

    I wanted M43 Olympus. Plenty of lens choices and great cameras with awesome IBIS. However, I found out that their cameras have different sensors and the sensor on their flagship camera is noisy. The flagship camera was introduced in fall of 2013 so they might have something in the near future. They just introduced the E-M5 II so this means another camera is on the way.

    Fuji is an APS-c camera. Not a whole lot of lens options yet but is pretty good. Their lenses are a lot heavier than the M43s. For example: Nikon 17-55 2.8 is 26.6oz, Fuji 16-55 2.8 is 23.1 oz and Oly 12-40 2.8 is 13.5 oz. If you get a mirrorless for portability Fuji lenses might not be significantly lighter unless you need an arsenal of lenses.

    Sony had made leaps with their line but their fast lenses are primes. Fast zoom lenses are f4 so there is still a long way to go.

    Nikon? You don't need to ask. There might be something for me in the future but definitely not right now.

    So that's why I chose to get an FX instead. In the future I am thinking of keeping an FX for really wide shots, my pro DX for telephoto needs, then a mirrorless for portability.
