The big issue, yet to arrive, will swing the top of the line
In reply to BobYIL, Apr 12, 2012

The big advantage of mirrorless hasn't even arrived yet and will move the top of the line cameras to mirrorless. Mirrors will become incompatible with the best images. Mirrorless allows ultra-high standard frame rates and those other frames can contain information always useful for improving the quality of the chosen frame. This capability has not quite hit yet. When it does it will be necessary to trade down in image quality and selection to stick with a mirrored camera. The top of the line will be mirrorless, a true merger of video and stills. A non-mainstream fork will preserve frozen SLR designs for those who resist switching, for a decade or so after the top of the line products become mirrorless.

If you can shoot 80 or 100 fps of high resolution stills, then pick, or have picked for you, the frame that you want enhanced with information from adjacent frames you can have better still images and better video. The only thing you can't have is a flopping mirror in the light path.
