I suspect, though, that the SLR/DSLR form factor will stick around for much longer than the actual mirror box. There's a reason the GH3 is designed to look like a mini-DSLR.

Yeah. You can't kill good ergonomics to those enthusiasts / pros that want it and need it. I definitely see the SLR/DSLR shape living well beyond the mirror box.

Couldn't agree more. The current MILC forms are a disaster ergonomically for extended periods of shooting.

well, i was following a guy with an OMD, for 8 hours on a tour in Istanbul.. he looked pretty happy all day long.. snapping away.. changing lenses.... at the end of the day he was showing me his pics telling me how he loved the camera... i carried around a point and shoot for many years.. tiny buttons... the old canon s30 BRICK.. i never thought to myself once "gee this camera is a pain to hold and use when i'm out all day shooting...

I think, if someone is not going to like the ergonomics of a small ILC, then they're not going to be happy within 10 shots.. not an 'extended period of time'

wanna disaster of ergonomics... ?  like the guy next to me in a restaurant who was lugging a d300 and an 18-200 lens... "I cant stand this camera after a day of shooting" he told me..
