I’m going to do one of my end-of-year assessments a little earlier this year. Many of you will be struggling with buying decisions this holiday season because of all the higher-end mirrorless cameras that appeared in and around Photokina.
Sony sent out a press release a week ago that went immediately viral within the photography community: “Sony Overtakes #2 Position in U. S. Full-Frame Interchangeable Lens Camera Market. ” Instantly you saw commentary on this press release everywhere from DPReview to PetaPixel to all the various brand-specific sites.
2018 was an important year for mirrorless. As we kick off the new year, it’s a good time for some reflection on the market. I’ve written quite a bit about where we are now that all the big players are seriously in the mirrorless game.
