Mirrorless have been around quite awhile. If they didn't replace film slrs I'm not sure why they would replace sales.

Interchangable lens mirrorless.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

MILC system lacks high speed super telephoto, ultra wide, and T/S...

T/S, yes (although tilt lens adapters do abound). High-speed supertele yes, but there are slow superteles, and with larger crop factors, shorter lenses are superteles.

Ultrawide, no. EOS-M has the 11-22. Sony NEX has the 10-18. Samsung NX has a 12-24. Nikon 1 has the 6.7-13. And mft has the Oly 9-18 and the Panasonic 7-14. It's really only Fuji X that's currently missing an ultrawide zoom, and they've got a 10-24 on their 2014 roadmap. So, think you can tick this one off on your list.

heres my answer when asked:

Think of it like fishing. I take a day away from my home and family to get up early, burn alot of gas to drive a long way, put an expensive boat in the water, rig up an expensive rod and reel and you want to know why a $3.00 hook is OK with me?

Compared to the expense and effort to get my butt out and about with some free time to do it, a few hundred bucks and a few extra pounds of gear is no more consideration than the money I could save buying cheaper fish hooks.

That said, I use my little mirrorless much more than my bigger boxes. It is less intrusive than the others when doing street shots and fits easily in a pocket and takes great shots even several generations old. Get both if you can, the right tools for the job and all.

I thought he was referring to digitals. I have a Bronica RF645 interchangeable lens rangefinder, too.

Except that a rangefinder camera is a different beast entirely.

It depends on what you shoot as to what camera you will use. I picked up a EOS-M when they were discounted by B&H and I like it. I still use my Rebel and my 7D most of the time but the M is a nice little carry around camera for impulse shots and for times when you need something other than a cellphone camera that you can stick in your coat pocket.
