DSLR Market Heads in Several Interesting Directions
That's the audience that manufacturers had in mind when they designed the Micro Four Thirds concept but some consumers feel a bit confused.
"I understand how much better the pictures I can capture with a DSLR are," explained Georgeanne Greene, a New Yorker and the prototypical soccer mom. "I just don't have any real interest in changing lenses and I thought the MTF cameras afforded me that advantage. But then I went to buy one and the guy started talking to me about additional lenses."
The serious shooters are claiming that it's important to note that the MFT models should not be considered a replacement for a DSLR. "A DSLR is simply a much more advanced camera and that's important to note," Tilman added. "They have a much faster AF, greater flash depth and DSLR systems are vast compared to what's currently available with Micro Four Thirds."
