Sony a6000 with 16-70mm lens

There's been a steady rise of mirrorless cameras in the last few years. It seems all the cool kids have been getting into the Fuji X series. Although I'm not that concerned with camera gear, I have been keeping an eye on this trend myself - although I'm happy with most aspects of current Canon DSLR, there is one area where it comes up short - or rather comes up heavy, since the problematic aspect is weight.

Canon70-300

For a while I've been happy about my lens setup for my DigitalSLR: a Sigma 18-200 as a general on-camera lens, Canon 10-22 for wide, Canon 50 f1.8 and 100 f2 for low light portraits and narrow depth of field. It's a good set up that's helped me take lots of photos that I like.

But, as most obsessive amateurs like me know, there's always that nagging desire for better equipment. I hear about how a consumer-grade lens like the 18-200 can't be as sharp as something a bit better, that I can get a lens that will auto-focus faster and quieter, maybe my longer tele shots are a bit softer than I think I ought to be able to get?

DigitalSLR

Like many geeks I'm into photography. We geeks like photography because it provides the veneer of an artistic endeavor while allowing us to indulge in lots of technical details and spend money on expensive toys. A friend recently asked about my camera buying decisions, a question that prompted me to write them down.

Canon60D

When I first made the move to a DigitalSLR I deliberately bought a cheaper camera - a Canon Rebel XTi/400D. I did this partly to put more money to lenses, but also becuase I knew that technology would move on and I'd be looking to replace the body in a few years.

CanonS90

Like many obsessive snappers, I've recently got hold of the Canon S90 camera. It's small enough to fit in your pocket, but has the kind of things that people with pretensions to seriousness like: full manual controls, RAW file support, a good sensor, and an f2 lens.
