Yet another question about digital cameras
June 23, 2014 6:05 AM Subscribe
I'd like to upgrade my household's photography capabilities with a new camera and I am torn between a low-end DSLR and the new mirrorless micro-4/3rds cameras. I'm torn between the world of possibilities in the DSLR space vs. the more portable aspects of mirrorless cameras.

I grew up shooting on my father's (high end for the time) F2 SLRs so I know how to properly use a fully manual camera and I appreciate what I could do with lens choice and extraordinarily small depth of field. I also know I won't bring a big bulky camera with me so I might not use it enough to warrant the purchase. On the mirrorless front, I am concerned about a lack of lens choice (say low f-stop) and a general fear of buying into a less popular system that might be killed off by a manufacturer who has lost interest.
Thoughts? It would be mainly used for landscapes and other photography that would be used as reference works for mrs. mmascolino art work although as our nephews get older sports photography would also come into play.
