  • Even More Reader Thoughts and Questions
    on 19 September 2018 at 11:29

    "Nikon is now all-in and developing all their development to mirrorless. What's that mean for DSLRs?"Unfortunately we have to currently take Nikon's statements mostly at face value.

    For many years now I've been writing that it is inevitable that ILC (interchangeable lens cameras) will transition to mirrorless. Ten years ago ILC was basically 100% DSLR, ten years from now ILC will basically be 100% mirrorless. I may be off by a bit on the future date, though, as transitions are […]
