QuoteDear Canon, just give us a full frame body and consider the competition smashed.The only Full Frame Mirrorless that makes any sense is the Sony a99. It uses ALL their a-mount lenses. Do you want a mirrorless Canon DSLR with an EVF that uses EF lenses
I just want the smallest and lightest full frame camera, in other words mirrorless.
And besides, in a mirrorless camera there is no mirror slap, causing vibration. This has a number of advantages as the photographic workflow will be a lot more seamless/uniform, as one doesn't have to place the camera in a 'mirror lockup' mode in certain shooting scenarios to eliminate the mirror slap.
And about the EVF, I don't really care how bad it is. I'll be shooting with live view anyway.
I dont care about AF speed or FPS either. Don't need that for my kind of work.
Cameras are just tools, buy what best suits your needs. Maybe it's time to sell your Canon gear and buy a Sony a99 and some of their high quality Zeiss lenses.
BTW EVF is the future. Here's a Quote from Kirk Tuck (an Austin Tx commercial shooter who used to use Canon): "All cameras are good these days. I don't care about brands but I know that for my paying work I'll never willingly go back to a camera that doesn't have an EVF as an integral part of the design. Now, after selling off other systems, every camera I have except the Sony a850 is equipped with an EVF. And when I pick up the 850 I have to slow down and think more about operation. That means I think less about the image. I like the real time feedback of the newer finders. They make the feedback loop much more effective." Emphasis mine.
