CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

I don't consider any mirrorless camera without a viewfinder "serious"

The ones that Daguerre used weren't serious enough?

Mr Rockwell is always funny to read even if I don't agree with all of his opinions. I guess: In his eyes, because it is a CANON, it MUST BE the FIRST SERIOUS mirrorless one?

Nifty - I want to put a CV21 on it and use a CV28 finder in the shoe. Boom. I bet the M adapters are available on ebay before the camera is.
