"I understand that mirrorless cameras have faced the same problem as DSLRs when they were first introduced. The novel technology wasn’t very well developed at first and suffered from some early disadvantages.
The electronic viewfinder was a revolution, but a very premature one. In theory, the new viewfinder only offered advantages and new features. There are new possibilities of overlays, like grids, histograms, or focus peaking. But electronic viewfinders didn’t hold up to their promises.
They felt laggy, especially when moving the camera very quickly, the resolution wasn’t great, and in these ways, the EVF had clear disadvantages to the classic optical viewfinder.
Fast forward to today, though, the flaws of the EVF have largely been extinguished. There isn’t any visible lag and thanks to the advancement in processors, and the framerate stays stable when moving the camera quickly.
Besides the clear advantages of the EVF, mirrorless cameras also offer other advantages.
Whereas high-end DSLRs only can shoot up to 14 photographs per second (or 16fps with mirror lockup), mirrorless cameras are already able to get as high as 20 images per second in burst mode. Due to the physical limitations of the mirror, DSLRs will never advance as far as mirrorless in this area.
The design of mirrorless cameras also allows them to be more compact and lighter.
It becomes very apparent that mirrorless cameras already beat DSLRs in almost every aspect, and with the heavy investments being poured into mirrorless technology, they will only get further ahead."
I haven't tried a mirrorless camera, anyone here switched?
