The area mirrorless cameras have seen the largest improvement this year is in 4k video and extreme low-light perfomance. These 8MP 3840x2160 video frames are more than good enough for many still photography applications, bluring the line between photography and videography.
Footage from Panasonic GH4 with 16MP M43 sensor.
Footage from Sony A7s with 12MP full frame sensor. Check out the ISO 12800 footage at 2:21 - amazing!
Since a full frame sensor is four times the size of M43 this means each of the 4k pixel receives 4 times the light = minimum 2 full stops better high ISO performance. People who have seen the footage in person have this similar reaction:
This new technology will drastically reduce one of the biggest expenses in filmmaking - lighting cost.
