    Cheapest 1" compact was RX100 for 25k. No one beat that price in that last 5 yrs. I really expected Canon would price it cheaper than Sony, at least price fall after 6 months. Nothing happened.

    Then maybe in the international market its considered cheap what we consider costly..even 25k for 5 yr product is not cheap

    I don't know if the word 'just' applies there :) It's a pretty special camera, 10.2 MP MOS sensor delivering ISO 51,200 without extending, plus a bunch of other features that make it a camera aimed at professionals (if the price tag wasn't already a clue).

    @raja manuel I would really want to get hold of these nice new cams, but as a secondry to my DSLR. That is the reason I cant spend 50k for a P&S . if it cost 20k then I may justify it.

    Small question what is the difference between mirrorless camera and DSLR? I have seen many professional photographers buying Mirrorless camera instead of DSLR? Slightly confused.

    basic difference is in name :)
    DSLR - Digital single-lens reflex ...the light falls on a mirror and then send to the sensor to create image
    mirrorless - the light falls directly on the sensor as no mirror is there.

    Due to the mirror, DSLR are big and mirrorless are small and compact.

    If want instant photographs and do not bother about small things, go for Mirror less.
    If want to be a pro and enjoy photography more then DSLR is best.
    Check your passion first.

    Yesterday ordered a basic DSLR backpack from amazon which will be delivered today or tomorrow. Bought this as I want to put my TC+300mmf4 attached. I am bit frustatated to attach TC to lens and lens to DSLR every time. The bag seems to big enough to take attached DSLR also.

    My lowepro 200AW could only fit lens in its full length. So this becomes my camera bag number 4.

    This is a very old fashioned view. Many professionals use mirrorless cameras with jaw dropping results. There are some areas where DSLRs still have an advantage, but that is rapidly shrinking. Unless you are the kind of person who needs a 1DX type of camera (Olympics coverage, warzone photojournalism) you can use a mirrorless camera. Even for those applications, it is unclear if mirrorless's disadvantage is due to any inherent technical drawback or just that the two manufacturers who have a lot of experience in that area are not yet making flagship mirrorless cameras.
    There is no lack of passion amongst mirrorless camera users.

    Well...to be honest it depends. The only advantage DSLRs have for now is the build quality...Sony doesn't have nice weather sealing. Otherwise I have seen many people use A7r/A7s xx series for studio work...people who probably won't even touch DSLRs again and have photography as primary source of income.

    @sujoyp, I'm thinking of buying a backpack from Peakdesign...but it is so expensive...I can buy a lens for that price xD

    Is the one on the side your old bag? That seems huge as well.

    I've met lots of guys shooting professionally that have switched to mirrorless. The ones that don't usually say
    - need live viewfinder
    - want/have a huge selection of lenses
    - weather sealing is needed

    So it's more about comfort. everything else sony and olympus have caught up or surpassed.

    Btw my 2nd hand 75-300 4.5-5.6 is here[​IMG]

    My old bag was not so big but of good quality..lowepro 200aw...new one is basically for my birding combo.and any future purchases.

    Your 70-300 looks good and solid..looks heavy

    Problem with mirrorless is if i attach big birding lens or macro lens with flash then weight will be again lot..i will loose the advantage of it being light and small

    It's quite heavy, but then it seems to be really well constructed. The advantage is that for most uses you'll carry only the kit lens and it'll be compact. But you have the flexibility to add longer lenses, flash etc. Also the ability to use legacy lenses using focus peaking and adapters is a huge huge plus. I now have some 5-6 vintage lenses and they are mostly amazing

    That's a really long lens. Is it non-telephoto?

    Didn't understand this. Its a 75-200 zoom lens


    Is this in relation to the length of the lens being longer than the focal length? Almost 5-6cm in the front is the folding lens hood.
