At this point, the only reason I see sticking with a DSLR is PDAF.

I can see other reasons as well. For example the availability of (ultra)wide-angle tilt-shift lenses. I use my DSLRs most of the time, even though I use live view a lot and I do have a mirrorless system as well. Mirrorless simply does not currently provide the same results that are achievable with a competent DSLR system, or at least achieving those results is so much easier with a DSLR that the size/weight difference is a smaller consideration for me.

1- Why can't a mirror-less camera be used?

There are no mirrorless alternatives to a FF DSLR and a 17mm TS-E, for example. This is a favourite combo for some, and a perfectly valid reason for sticking with a DSLR. Even though it has nothing to do it PDAF.

2- What mirror-less camera do you have that can't do it?

It doesn't really matter, since there exists no such mirrorless camera that could do it. But I have a Panny G1. And used to have an Oly E-P1.
