    Hey, Sony, how about fix the terrible shutter issues, firmware problems, software issues and garbage user interface. Use some decent batteries, even with two batteries it can not keep up with ONE battery from either Canon or Nikon. Your super expensive body, is not weather sealed. Owners of the A7 or A7RII are reporting their shutters getting stuck in cold weather. There are SO many things wrong with the A7R II, it is seriously a risk purchasing one from Sony. Customer service is terrible, and there are almost NO authorized Sony repair centers in the US. So, in conclusion.. Sony's mirrorless body A7 (Mark I or Mark II) are plagued with errors due to incompatible hardware, bad firmware and software, a terribly thought out user interface, a really unreliable shutter and is not weather sealed. This is why the net is plagued with A7Rs for sale and owners going back to tried and true Canon and Nikon bodies. Rugged, awesome firmware and user interface and amazing quality.

    I think they are both great. Different uses. I would not buy Mirrorless if I already have a good DSLR.

    Back in the day you get a DSLR? You obviously shouldn't be working with cameras. It would be an SLR.

    I was in Scotland recently and the guy next to me had a Sony, we were both shooting a fishing osprey at 500mm. You could pick out the fish caught was a trout on my 5DII (5yrs old) but you couldn't even make out it was a fish on his. He was well peed off with it and was putting it up for sale as soon as he got home.

    Fact, I can't afford a mirrorless camera because it's twice the price.

    Can't explain how horribly wrong you are.

    i disagree DSLR is much better and faster. I have canon 5dsr and 5d mk2. i also own fuji xe1, xt1 and sony a7s. af speed did improve for mirrorless but its not fast enough to process the image. as for quality mirrorless is very soft. design wise the good lenses for sony is huge not balance if you use it.
