    I like that mirrolesses are starting to be shooters cameras, not a wood block with a lens on it.

    Big for sure. Might as well use a DSLR.

    so the only reason you shoot mirrorless is size? what happens when you mount a huge lens on your mirrorless?

    mirrorless and small shouldn't be synonymous.

    A shooter needs to hold a camera and use; design a camera that can be held and the controls manipulated.

    While form factor was a cool bonus, I found my a6000 MUCH harder to hold and shoot compared to my d610. You still weren't fitting it in a pocket with the kit lens; despite how small it was. Holding a teeny tiny soap bar sized rectangular block up to your face to use the teeny tiny viewfinder was silly. Not having a top LCD panel meant always relying on looking at the back LCD to do anything.

    Mirrorless cameras need to be more like DSLRs in regards to ergomonics and the controls (but even those barely put effort into it). Seriously someone developed a camera body in the 1970s, and every since was like "there's no possible way we can improve upon this!"

    Size is the big reason I shoot M43 and most other people. And what huge lenses? Lenses are typically half the size and weight as DSLR equivalents.

    I find there is nothing wrong with the ergonomics of my EM1 MKii or EM5 MKii. FIts my hand great and for the most part great button placement. Controls are typically better than DSLR since I can configure every button, dial or lever to what I desire.

    And why need a top LCD panel when all the information shows in the EVF or back LCD panel. I can even get a live histogram in the EVF.

    I don't think you have held many M43 camera bodies by your statements.

    mirrorless =/= m43

    mirrorless = lacking a mirror

    35mm mirrorless sensors have identical lens in terms size and weight to their dslr counterparts -- sometimes bigger and heavier.

    You are in a thread about the Panasonic M43 so why would I think you are discussing 35mm mirrorless?

    I dunno, cause you responded to a conversation about the size of a mirrorless camera in general?

    I watched this video today. I'm not saying it represents anyone in particulars needs, but it's a Panasonic G80/85 with 5 lenses in a smallish bag, even if the body is a little bigger there's no denying the attractive little baby lenses

    Panasonic are getting a bit clever here, evf can be set to shut off 3,5 or 10 seconds after camera taken down from eye. Should in ideal situation yield over twice amount then. It's not ideal, but an improvement

    Yes, very close to the 3,000 shots per charge I've come to expect from Nikon pro cameras.You know, one, single battery for an entire weekend. Not four batteties per 3-hour sporting event.
