even when the mirrors are gone one day, because electronic viewfinder are finally good enough and the sensor based phase detection is up to par with it´s optical sibling, the 35mm camera systems will still be here.
so who cares if a 9D MK2 will have a mirror or not?
if the EVF can match the optical one i don´t care.... im all for it!!
but do this guy really think nikon and canon will stop making aps-c and fullframe sensors for their current mounts? bullsh*t!
and EF mount cameras will always have a bigger sensor then mFT for example. so no matter how good the sensor technology gets... a bigger sensor of the same technology will always have better IQ then a smaller one.
i "fear" more about low cost/low quality point and shoot cameras, with all the mobile phone cameras, who needs a 90$ point and shoot?
it seems that they just don't understand the market at all.
but you are?
the problem to solve for a company is not what some photogs want.. it´s where the MONEY is.
i know that around 40% of my customers are ambitious amateurs.
everyone of them would love to have a camera like the 1DS or 1D X.
but guess how many will buy one?
i sell a lot of mirrorless cameras, especially OLYMPUS PEN and PANASONIC G models.
but lens sales are bad compared to NIKON or CANON 35mm systems.
i think (im guessing) canon knows exactly what they are doing.
that they have no mirrorless exchangeable lens system out yet does not mean they don´t do a lot of R&D.
because mirroless owner do not invest as much in their systems as DSLR owners, they switch brands much easyer (my own experience from selling cameras).
many PEN and GF3 owners asking me for the new FUJI PRO camera already.
so if CANON will bring out a great mirrorless one day it will not be the same as if they have left the 35mm market to NIKON for years.
