Mirrorless digital camera

Mirrorless cameras are a new category of camera that are inbetween a regular digital camera and a full fledged DSLR. They have interchangable lenses like a DSLR but lack the optical viewfinder, they are typically smaller than DSLRs.

Optical viewfinder

Most digital cameras do not have a viewfinder, instead you can preview the photo you're about to take by looking at the screen on the back. Some digital cameras however do have built-in viewfinders, which have several advantages including no battery drain and the ability to use them in bright light.

Please define better: Better focus ? Better image quality ? Better reach on their zoom ?

One thing to also understand is Optical Viewfinder, like the one on the D5100 and Electronic Viewfinder like those on most mirrorless cameras have both pro and cons.


A quick and dirty answer would be the Sony A6000, it has been named camera of the year 2014 by a LOT of users, vendors and reviewer, the biggest drawback is the price of the glass, it's really expensive, more than the Canikon equivalent.

I own a Nikon D5100 with 18-200mm lens. Which mirror less Camera with View Finder can match or be better than the one I own?
