Well for that 1/2 stop, think of the price difference between the 50mm f1.8 and the 50mm f1.4. I know you also gain shallower DOF, but still.

You live up to your name. Nobody suggested removing the mirror. Just a button to flick it up for those times you do want that extra bit of light.

Why do people get hung up on half a stop? What is the situation where it will make such a dramatic difference? I think we see the difference between measurebators and true photographers in the answer to this question.

The fact that a-mount lenses are still worth any money at all is thanks to the success of SLT.
