    This says for Nikon G mount lenses. My d7100 says it's an F mount. So I need F mount to Sony E-mount

    "The adapter features a built-in aperture control ring to work with the Nikon G lenses."

    G lens as in 1.8G. F-mounts lens without an aperture ring.

    Solid eh? I like the ones that are hollow and let light pass through to the sensor. I bet a solid camera would last longer though. :)

    I have the Olympus OM D 10 and love it. Took a little time to get used to the EVF. but it's a fantastic camera. I love shooting manual and the kit lens is fantastic for what it is

    that'll work but at some point you have to ask "How many cameras do I really need"?
    the good thing about mirrorless is they can use almost any DSLR lens (with adapter)

    Lens size will be more of an issue than camera size. Consider a micro four thirds camera like an Olympus om-d e-m10, or a Panasonic gm5. They take great pictures, have excellent AF for most uses and a great selection of lenses. They travel light while sacrificing little.

    I have changed from a canon550d to the A6000 and my opinion is my images are better. Well worth the change over!

    Was on a holiday and taking a few photos in Cape Tribulation/Daintree and it was high humidity, saw this guy with a little pocket sized camera taking shoots of the same things as me! I had my Nikon dslr, huge backpack 5 lenses, tripod etc he had a bumbag! Anyway few hours later, sitting in a bar i saw the same guy, started talking, he had a A6000 showed me it etc. I was amazed in size. 3 days latter i brought the a6000 in Cairns and still on holidays. Its a great small camera, i brought the twin lens kit as it was $100 extra. I have just purchased a 35 prime as well. And with the 6300 and 6500 out now the 6000 is slowly dropping, in price. So its a good buy.

    I always suggest dslr camera. it has multi function and also have wonderful feature. mirroless camera also good for beginner photography.
