See, Jesper, it is pretty basic knowledge that, the more light gets to the sensor, the better for the IQ. And it is also general knowledge that the SLT takes away light. So, it would be better for the IQ f the SLT would flip up for the picture. Sorry that you don't seem to understand that. Maybe you can ask someone to explain it for you.

That is correct but it does not make the concept of a SLT with flipping mirror possible.

You can choose between speeds much slower than a DSLR (thin mirror flipping very slow) or massive CAs in SLT mode (thick mirror flipping fast).

The noise difference is not a problem to most people. Compared to cameras a few generations old the difference between a SLT and a NEX is a joke. Why would you invest in researching a SLT with flipping mirror when the next sensor generation or SLT mirror generation (both which you are going to research with full speed anyway) will have a higher impact on noise.

Nobody buys SLTs because of high ISO capabilities and only a few will buy them because of a bit less noise and half a f-stop when the mirror will be able to flip.

What about building a real SLT/DSLR hybrid. You could use two viewfinders (EVF+OVF) and two PDAF modules. One on the top and one on the bottom. You could turn the mirror so that it reflects the light to either of them. In one mode it's a DSLR and in the other it's a SLT. You would need to put every button twice on the camera, inject the battery from the side and it would be heavy as sh$t but you would have both. So awesome. You might even glue two cameras together. It would be possible to take two pictures at the same time.
