I know you will call me crazy or fanboy but I seriously believe mirrorlesss cameras are the future. DSLR still have some clear advantages and one of them is known to be the faster autofocus performance. Today TheCameraStoreTV team posted this autofocus shootout video to see how close the latest generation mirrorless camera are compared to the king of sports photography, the $6,500 Nikon D4s. Chris tested the Fuji X-T1, Sony A6000, Olympus E-M1 and Panasonic GH4.
Well according to their tests the Panasonic GH4 autofocus performance is damn close to the Nikon which is a huge surprise in face of the massive price difference. Yes, the day will come when a Mirrorless camera (maybe a GH5?) will match the best DSLR autofocus.
