"But alas no."

Sony Final Thoughts

"Fast shipping!"

Low light seems to be better than the GH4 or G7. Fast or continuous autofocus. The Sony phase and contrast system has it beat. The longer you have it, the more small issues you find. The flash feels lighter than my Andoer flash for my other camera.

Canon EOSMRD Final Thoughts

"Beast of a camera."

The camera is fast, sharp, and most important to me - light. The grip is excellent for medium and large hands. Mirrorless has come into it's own. The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. This really shouldn't stop you from buying this Canon EOSMRD.

"FAST shutter!"

K&M ILCE6100L/B Final Thoughts

"It doesn't creep."

With its kit lens, there are several focusing aids. More megapixels would be nice too when cropping BIFs. Higher ISO produces very usable images, even at ISO 12800. So, when K&M ILCE6100L/B came, I purchased it immediately. Higher ISO produces very usable images, even at ISO 12800.
