| p.1 #12 · Mirrorless, and not looking like a badass ... |
Thanks for the input guys. Really interesting to see the all of the angles you have. I know there isn't a real answer to be had on this topic, but I have to wonder if a blossoming mirrorless market isn't going to continue to push this challenge? I'm with Brett here. It really feels like we are only a few years away from being able to enjoy a much more low key approach to shooting for a majority of the day. I'm already mixing in Fuji and M43 regularly, with zero concern about the ability of the cameras.. I've got a pretty solid handle on the limitations of each. My wife just brought this up to me, and I guess that I hadn't considered it too much. I'll say this an olympus OM-D with a 45mm f/1.8 sure looks a lot different than my 5D with any lens, even the 40mm pancake, so I can't imagine that would go entirely unnoticed. I do believe the retro styling on the Fuji X series cameras, as well as the OM-D E-m5 help the "marketability" of their look. At least right now in 2013, the intrigue of what appears to be an older camera certainly does draw some intrigue. Not sure if that is going to wear off for folks as this design inevitably gets aped. As a side note, I've fallen so deeply in love with these little cameras, that I'm currently housing Sony, Fuji and Olympus stuff ... can't decide what to keep!
