Sony Killed The DSLR‽

The Art of Photography beat me to something I have been thinking about this year. Sony killed the DSLR and some people are having trouble accepting what Sony did. For those into technology, it was inevitable that mirrorless was going to kill the DSLR with so many exciting sensor technologies around the corner. The big one we were all waiting for and still are waiting for is a true global shutter, but the stacked image sensor, PDAF pixels, and BSI technology seems to have been enough to put the final nail in the DSLR coffin once and for all.

I for one will not miss the DSLR, because I honestly never owned one myself due to my dislike of the technology. I shot rangefinder before mirrorless and while I used a DSLR at work when I was forced to, I always hated the clunky DSLR experience so I am glad it will finally be replaced with a better thought-out design. Some thought this day would never come, but I was certain it would be coming sooner rather than later, and now that Canon and Nikon are done with DSLRs the rest of us should be too. Thank you, Sony for doing us all a massive favor and showing photographers that there is a better way to take photos even if it took some longer than others to accept.
