| p.2 #5 · Suggestion on best DSLR/mirrorless for MF lenses? |
You can find out about the 'full conversion' of the a99 to a mirrorless (from its present config of 'ghost mirror' status) on the web...it is apparently easy, and this would give you a mirrorless non-AF top drawer DSLR with RX1 level sensor performance and the current best EVF, IBIS too if that counts for you. a99 prices will drop quite quickly most likely.
I thought about it for a week or so, but was so happy with real world results at ISO 5000 that I thought better of it, and the mirror is my 'sensor dust guard'. Not one dust more in several thousands exposures and lots of lens changes, nice.
Noise character seems noticeably better than the Nikon D800 also for commonly used middle ISO levels, but it's a degree of excellence. I think Sony made a very good decision using the 24Mp sensor in their two top cameras, it's...harmonious. Sometimes less is more.
