It is the only type of camera that can do any type of photography.

Until after I bought my DSLR, there were not even any ultra wide zooms for mirrorless cameras.  They still lag behind.

I don't shoot much action, but since I am an amateur, I like the option to shoot all types of pics.  Only the DSLR can handle action.

I do some low light shots, as well as HDRs, on a tripod.  Once you break out the tripod, the extra size and weight of the DSLR are negligible.

The mirrorless cameras don't have the multi flash features of DSLRs.

They don't have the lens selection.

Sure I have a P&S that I can use if I want to travel light, but I almost never use it because the DSLR is so much better in every way but size and weight.
