It’s been more than a year since the debut of the world’s first full frame mirrorless system and just this past month we’ve already seen the second generation Sony A7 Mark II hit the shelves (and our first impressions are here). We are pretty much past the honeymoon phase along Roger’s Law of New Product Introductions (new products being mirrorless full frame systems). Early adopters have adopted. Initial nonbelievers are recanting. Now comes the point where the mainstream consumers are thinking whether or not they should ditch the DSLR and switch over to the mirrorless.

It seems like compact cameras, like the Sony RX100 Mark III has reached such a high image quality it can compete with APS-C formats from entry level DSLRs. Pretty amazing! We can also read here and there that the Sony A6000 can almost compete with full frame cameras. Even more astonishing, some risk themselves to compare full frame A7 to medium format cameras.
What’s next? Well, Sony will soon try to introduce a new competitor to the Hasselblad medium format cameras. But remember, Pentax, Nikon and Hasselblad use Sony’s sensors.
Maybe size does matter when it comes to photography!
But are you sure?
Take the test to see if you can tell the difference between compacts, micro 4/3rd, APS-C or Full Frame sensors. You’ll see that it’s not that easy!
I took the test and got a score of 62% only.
What’s yours? At iLHP, we are curious to know! ;-p
