Mirrorless....Is it for you?

The question I get asked frequently is "Are you switching to the Sony Nex 6?" The answer is no, not full-time. Mirrorless cameras for certain types of photography are great. Especially if you have the lens choices to go with the camera. The great thing about most mirrorless cameras is you can buy adapters and use almost any lens with the cameras. So, my Sony Nex 6 with the proper adapter can use Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Leica and the list goes on. That in my opinion is one of the strengths that people don't talk enough about. The Sony Nex 6 is a APS-C cropped sensor. In fact its the same size sensor as the Nikon D7000. Image quality isn't the issue. So for me, I'll use the Sony Nex 6 for some cityscapes, street photography and my daily photographic interests. For things such as sports, bird photography or wildlife I be shooting with my Nikon's. At least for now. If you decide to buy one make sure you understand the strengths and the weaknesses.
