I've been debating the jump over to the Olympus recently or to Fuji's latest offerings. Really starting to feel that the future of digital photography is not in DSLR for the average consumer user.

I just really love how small the Olympus is.....

For me, I actually find the smaller cameras too light and small. I like the heft of my 7D, and have been considering finding some way to mount a weighted stabilization bar below it to make it even more steady. May go with a shoulder stock rig instead. But I think I'm going to wait and get a battery grip for it first and see how that feels.

I really dig the Fuji x series especially my x100 but the focusing system needs alot of work. I end up zone focus with the x100 instead of autofocusing most of the time.

Sony's ad did a good job lampooning DSLR's, but I'm not sure mirrorless answers all those issues raised either. At least DSLR's have accessible controls on the body...menu diving for basic settings is not just a DSLR phenomenon.

For me, a D5100 with the tiny 35mm DX 1.8 and SB-400 flash is about as small as a mirrorless setup and gives me a legit optical viewfinder, too!

To each their own!

I'd agree with you Dr PhunkyPants my XTi with a 50mm on it and a little 270ex flash is very very comparable to a mirrorless camera in terms of size and weight. Now if I run my battery grip obviously it'll be heavier but the fact it has more settings more than makes up for that

What do you mean by that statement?

a lot of the mirrorless offering either lack or dumb down the settings for various things that on a DSLR if you're an advanced shooter are pretty much necessary to get great shots right out of the camera sans post processing.

Thats what I thought you might be saying. Seems to be more the case with the Nikon V1 and J1. J1 being more marketed towards those wanting to upgrade from a point and shoot. Although I would say the majority of the offerings from Sony, Panasonic, Olympus and Fuji have extensive manual options. Brock purchased the OMD which certainly doesn't lack those manual features. I understand people's issues with EVF but the last ones on Sony cam's and the OMD as really amazing. If you're interested in long exposure stuff an evf can be pretty awesome.

I had a Sony Mirrorless and just didn't care for it. Great little camera, but I found it sitting in bag more than it was being used. I had it to serve as a "take anywhere" camera, and while it went everywhere with me, I never used it.

I received my OM-D, charged it up, and went out for a nice long shoot. To make a long story short, it didn't work for ME. It is a gorgeous specimen of a camera, and if I had smaller hands, or more $$$, I would have loved it and kept it. As it was, I would have needed to purchase the optional extended grip for it to use it for extended periods of time. With the extraordinary deals going on right now, I ended up replacing it with a D7K. I couldn't be happier!
