I've been keeping an eye on the whole mirrorless trend, of late, trying to see what the fuss was about, and I haven't figured it out , yet. Maybe this thread will turn into a "sticky" topic and stay at the top of the forum for others to read, since I am quite sure I will get lots of replies. I originally thought that mirrorless was going to be another style of small point and shoot camera or maybe a small bridge camera, but the range of body sizes kills that theory. Some look as big as many DSLRs so the idea of having them be a really compact camera seems to be not held in some places. Some of the cameras DO look really compact, until you put a lens of them. Now they are too bulky for pockets or purses, but... some bodies look like it's a lens with a small camera hanging off the back. Ergonomically, this doesn't look too stable. Most don't have a viewfinder, unless you get one that can have it as an add-on for more money, so your left with the smart phone style of shooting with the camera held out in front of you. Then I looked at the prices. You can easily get a full blown DSLR combo for the price of a mirrorless camera and lens. the lenses aren't low cost either. So, they aren't all that small, some have odd ergonomics, and the prices are just as high as a DSLR and there are LESS lenses for them. So, what is the draw of a mirrorless camera ?
