Fair points made in the thread both for and against the Sony system. It really isn't for everyone, and there are very distinct strengths and weaknesses with both mirrorless camera and DSLR's. That said, I'm all for giving credit where credit is due, and its hard not to correct someone when they cling to outdated sentiments regarding mirrorless cameras. Most have never used one and are basing their opinion on outdated information....can't blame them as mirrorless cameras have progressed very quickly in the past two years. Most are receptive to the facts when you present them in the right way and the benefit of those discussions is that at least some people walk away better educated about mirrorless cameras, even if they still aren't for them.
Some, however, have their heads buried so deep in a red ringed hole that they blindly disregard anything that goes against whatever camera or system they bought into. Cameras are expensive, and as such, are emotional purchases for people, and some people feel the need to justify what they spent thousands of dollars on, by verbally pooping on everything else. Unfortunately people like that feel a constant need to justify themselves, so they tend to have the loudest voices. It's best to ignore people like that, as there's no reasoning with them and no rational person capable of critical thinking (even those who share similar opinions) takes that kind of mindset seriously.
