Re: Anyone here left mirrorless for DSLR?

I have the Fujifilm X-E1 and love it.  However, there things it simply cannot do yet.  I did a photoshoot with a young model over the weekend.  I was experimenting with outdoor flash.  To blur the background I was using a Canon 85 mm f1.8 on a 5D MKIII at f2.8.  Boy were the images sharp and the background nicely blurred as shown below.

No way I could have done that with my X-E1.  The equivalent lens is not out yet, but more importantly, their flash system has no hi speed sync, nor can I see how to trigger multiple flashes and maintain TTL as I did here.
