    Hi Rick,

    Good to see you lurking around :-)

    I thought that those going to M4/3 would never come back... What would make you come back to FX?

    Re: Nikon mirrorless finally

    I know two pro wildlife photographers using Sony A9 bodies, and they are both very happy with them. I do get the attraction to the A9. 20 fps, apparently great autofocus, exposure preview with the EVF, some weight reduction, great video, it all seems nice. But, it's not several thousand dollars nice, IMO. Especially with limited lens availability.

    We'll see how the new Nikon mirrorless cameras perform, and especially with current F-mount lenses attached with whatever adapter they are going to provide. I know people who are ready to put there money down right now, and that kind of new product mania will drive early sales. A couple of years from now we will see if those people made a wise choice.

    Meanwhile, I refuse to buy into the idea that my D500 is obsolete. Nope, not even my "old" D7100 is not a relic of times gone by. Gee, I even have a few ancient lenses with no image stabilization. They aren't obsolete, either, and I get very nice, sharp pictures with them. I won't be an early adopter, not because I don't believe in the idea of mirrorless technology, but because it's going to have to prove itself and become affordable first.

    Ten years from now, I'll probably own some kind of mirrorless camera, and I bet most of you will, too.

    That makes sense, why be an early beta adopter. dSLR is at the pinnacle of maturity and may even mature a bit more.

    Mirrorless isn't going to make your photos magically better.

    Hello Marcel! The only thing I'm lacking in m43rds is a pro ultra wide that accepts standard filters. The 2 things that drove me from the dslr where the mirror slap and noise. I really got hooked on silent shooting after owning the Nikon 1 series. I'd keep my oly gear for hiking and wildlife, the Nikon would be primarily used for landscapes if they release the right UW.

    Since I've already begun to turn to Fuji, I'm not certain I will stick with Nikon for the mirrorless new camera. The price, size and old F mount support might steer me away.

    Trying to understand what you meant, Marcel. Does it mean Nikon's mirrorless won't work with older lenses? The article states, The new mount "will work with the NIKKOR F mount lenses". I'm obviously missing something.

    What I read is that it could "with an adapter" work with older lenses. Now we will have to wait to really find out. That was my first point.

    The second one will be the pricing. Since I already have spent money with Fuji, I could probably stay with what I have now, the convenience of mirrorless with Fuji and the Nikon APCS and FX bodies and lenses I already have.

    Sorry my post caused confusion.

    Do you use an adapter so that you can use your Nikon glass with Fuji? I've got a friend who's really into the Fuji bodies, and we had talked about mating up my 200-500/5.6 to his X-T1, but I have no experience with mount adapters and what's any good.

    I too was wondering the same thing about the Fuji. Are there other mirrorless bodies that work with Nikon glass--even with an adapter? Does anyone know?
