I've never been too much attracted by mirrorless cameras, most of them are ok but I personally think they are still too far away from the quality I can get with a proper DSLR, or even just the simplicity of control the camera settings, as I'm always shot in manual mode, so I constantly play with aperture, shutter speed and ISO, and I don't really want to get lost in some silly menus like most of the mirrorless. Ok this video shows up the differences between two of the most popular mirrorless you can find on the market, but what it actually stands out on this video is the image quality of the Fuji X-E1, especially on the dynamic range and high ISO performance. Personally that's the only mirrorless camera I would actually buy, maybe even because I always loved their cameras as my very first prosumer camera was a Fuji S7000, which nowadays it looks way outdated but back in the mid 2000 was an amazing little camera. Anyway, if you are thinking to buy a mirrorless and you are undecided between the Sony NEX-6 or the Fuji X-E1, you should see this video made by Chris Niccolls of The Camera Store.
