I know this is going to upset some, but I'm eager to read reactions.

From the June/July of Outdoor Photography, and from an article titled "The Mirrorless Future Is Now", all sounding so promising. But here is a direct quite which I will type here.

"Though the potential of mirrorless camera systems was intriguing, the nascent technology also posed limitations that would take years to resolve. Early mirrorless cameras relied on sensor-based contrast-detection autofocus, which lacked the responsive accuracy of the phase-detection autofocus offered by DSLRs, and their electronic viewfinders were relatively sluggish, dim (especially in low-light scenes) and low-resolution, providing suboptimial experience compared to the optical view-finders in DSLRs."

Quoted straight from the June/July issue of Outdoor Photography.

Thoughts?

These are limitations of the past, as the author noted. Slow viewfinders are not today's limitation. Every verb is past tense: was, were, would take ...

As the title states: The Mirrorless Future Is Now. Meaning NOW, now like August 3, 2022, and yesterday August 2, 2022, and every single day that is tomorrow.

I have, and I enjoy, both DSLR and mirrorless. Modern cameras are more microprocessor-based machines than they are anything else. The technology is far and away different than the film camera days, which is a good thing in many ways for the user experience.

I find some bits of truth in the author's comments regarding mirrorless cameras, although they may not be "one size fits all". Because I cannot build my own modern camera, I will be subjected to whatever the manufacturers are currently offering which is no different than when shopping for a new automobile.

Paul could you be a bit clearer as to the past, present and future.

Mirrorless cameras all have a fault, often if you try to focus on a distant subject, it will focus on the further distance
and lock on. To change it, you have to point the camera at a close subject, quickly touch for focus and quickly try to refocus on your subject. Such as focusing on, say the eye of a deer, it often jumps to the distance beyond the subject, and locks. From what I understand this is a problem with all mirrorless cameras.

Personally, I have little to no interest in mirrorless cameras. I did purchase one recently, tried it, then attached it to the back of an SLR. It's been there since.

I realize I'll never be the photographer Paul claims I could be if I went mirrorless but that's OK with me.

I purchased a mirrorless several months ago primarily for its auto focus bracketing capability, which I am very happy with. However, I have one major gripe...I can't keep the sensor clean. I only change lenses indoors, always use a rocket blower, and clean the sensor over and over. I doesn't stay clean long. I never have this problem with my dslr cameras which I routinely change lenses outdoors. I don't know if there are any mirrorless camera that somehow protect the sensor when changing lenses.

Possibly, it's not changing lenses but the lack of 'seals' for the lens and / or camera, probably both. Therefore, just using the camera is the issue, not your changing lens actions. I'm thinking this design flaw will be corrected by all the players as soon as possible, lest there is any lessening of the MILC onslaught.
