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!

My most used since i got it 2 - 3 month ago.
Rarely go anywhere without it, just fits my hand so well.
One problem i have is the screen, looks like it is separating around the edges so it needs to go back to Sony for repair soon.

Yes & yes, I'm also 2~3 months into it and find it a great camera to use. I only use adapter lenses - M-mount and Nikon AIS. I also shoot with it differently to most people; as the sensor is basically ISO-less I either shoot in Manual mode (raw) and auto ISO with a -2 or -3 EV continuously dialled in, or with a fixed ISO that I know is at least 2 stops below what is required. Being ISO-less there is basically no difference to using a higher ISO in body versus pushing the file in post; and its much easier to avoid blown highlights.

I also do this on the Ricoh GR, which also has an ISO-less Sony sensor...
